I have one from last night. As part of our vacation plans, we had decided we would get all you can eat crabs while we were camping since there was a place not too far from the park (camping at Assateague) so it wouldn't be a far drive.
Well we get there around 6 and they seat us saying "Just to let you know, we're out of coleslaw and baked potatoes." Well okay, we can live with that. (As a note, many AYCE places that serve steamed crabs will often serve side items as part of the meal to help fill you up since you could be at the restaurant forever waiting to get full on the crabs themselves)
So we're seated and the waiter comes by saying "Oh by the way we're all out of crabs, but we do have all you can eat crab legs and steamed shrimp." Since we came for steamed crabs and had been looking forward to that, we decided to go somewhere else and got up to leave. As we left, my friend heard the hostess saying to the waiter "Well I told them we're out of coleslaw and potatoes!" and the waiter say "We're out of crabs, too!"
Now I don't fault the hostess or the waiter, but 1) It's a holiday weekend so you'd think they'd order more crabs in anticipation of people wanting to get one last feast in before the end of the season and 2) We felt bad for the hostess that no one had communicated to her that they were out of crabs so she could warn people before they were seated that they were out. (And we did say we were there for crabs when we first arrived) 3) The marquee for the restaurant boasted "All You Can Eat steamed crabs!!" If they run out they ought to do something with their sign to let people know!
But it turned out alright as we went to Waterman's instead and filled ourselves with crabs, hush puppies, fried chicken and fries till we were stuffed/tired. It was great. And they have a kid's crab feast if you don't want to get AYCE for the under 12 group.
