Jim Rogers of Yardley never had any interest in eating crab cakes because every time he tried them they consisted of more fillers than crabmeat. That changed while dining with friends who served crab cakes from Capt’n Chucky’s Crab Cake Company.
“These crab cakes consist of all crabmeat without any fillers,” says Jim. “You can instantly taste and see the difference.”
Jim was so impressed with the quality of these crab cakes that he and his wife, Gail Rogers, recently opened the first Capt’n Chucky’s in Bucks County. It’s located at 25 S. Main Street in Yardley, just minutes from their home.
Capt’n Chucky’s is a specialty retail seafood store centered around the crab cake. It sells five different types of crab cakes, including its original signature crab cake made fresh daily.
This “Best of the Chesapeake” crab cake uses only jumbo lump crabmeat seasoned perfectly with Capt’n Chucky’s blend of spices.
The store’s specialty is its Smith Island Crab Cake, also made fresh daily, consisting of super tender colossal jumbo lump crabmeat spiced to perfection with a mild cream sauce.
In addition to its crab cakes, this store carries two seafood cakes, one with shrimp and one with lobster. Plus, it offers a variety of fish.
All food items sold at Capt’n Chucky’s are quality products with few preservatives, so you’re guaranteed a tasty, healthy meal. Plus, it offers gluten-free options.
Another unique feature of Capt’n Chucky’s is that it’s a Take-n-Bake store, meaning everything sold here is fully cooked and prepared, a great convenience to the community.
“Simply buy it here, take it home and warm it up,” says Jim. “It’s that simple.”
All crab cakes and seafood cakes are cooked at 400 degrees for just 15 minutes, and your entree is ready.
For a fully balanced meal, Capt’n Chucky’s also sells prepared appetizers, side dishes, salads and soup, most of which can be warmed within 15 to 20 minutes. Its custom soups include red snapper, Maryland crab, cream of crab, lobster bisque, Manhattan clam chowder, and New England clam chowder
“Our shrimp cocktail is phenomenal,” adds Jim. “They are wild caught from the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico.”
The fully prepared shrimp are cooked, deveined and ready to eat.
Capt’n Chucky’s unique Take-n-Bake feature is ideal for busy moms and dads who want to serve their family something healthy for dinner, but are too busy shuttling their kids around after school to cook anything that takes too long. Busy business professionals also enjoy picking up their fully cooked dinner that they can enjoy eating shortly after returning home after a long day.
“My hope is to fill a void in this community in terms of offering quality crab cakes and seafood in a unique fashion,” says Jim. “I’m happy to bring something different to Yardley and the surrounding areas.”
Stop by for a pleasant shopping experience and see all that Capt’n Chucky’s has to offer, or call ahead to pre-order, so your food will be ready to Take-N-Bake when you arrive home.
Store hours are Mondays through Fridays from 10:00am until 6:30pm, Saturdays from 9:00am until 4:00pm. Sundays…Gone Crabbin’!
