The Surfing Crab

is a family tradition of fresh seafood and crabs that was established over 50 years ago.


It all started back in 1961, when Henry Vechery opened the Bethesda Crab House. His young son, Donald Vechery began working with him at the age of just nine. Over the years, the crab house became a huge success. Around 2008, Donald wanted to branch out and build something for himself using his years of knowledge and experience. Thus, The Surfing Crab was born, providing Sussex County with 12 years of the most amazing crabs and seafood the area has seen.
