Beginning June 5, and running every Tuesday night through the end of August (except July 3), plus Wednesday, August 29 through Friday, August 31, Back Forty will offer a traditional Chesapeake Crab Boil, a quintessential summer dining experience that has proven popular at the restaurant every summer it's been open.
Back Forty's Tuesday Night Crab Boil consists of: Spiced Blue Crabs served on a newspaper-covered table, seasonal sides such as Buttery Potatoes and String Beans (and Corn on the Cob later in the summer); and desserts like Seasonal Fruit Cobbler. Back Forty's staff will gladly provide mallets, instructions for eating the crabs, and plenty of clean-up towels.
This year, reservations will be taken exclusively via pre-paid "tickets." See reservation details below.
June: 5, 12, 19, 26
July: 10, 17, 24, and 31
August: 7, 14, 21, 28, 29, 30, and 31
$45 (pre-paid): includes crabs, sides, and dessert (excludes beverages, tax, and gratuity). Seating at each crab boil is communal and Back Forty's regular menu will not be available on Tuesdays this summer.
