Cream of Crab Soup
The Cream of Crab soup is (at the time of this writing) a permanent menu item. A vegetable crab soup will come up on as the soup of the day on occasion, but is not part of the regular menu. The Cream of Crab soup is made with cream, sherry and lump crabmeat, available in both cup and bowl sizes.
Once of the first things you notice when you are served the soup is the sheen on top. Most likely from the sherry, but more resembles an oil slick. The crab meat in the soup doesn't seem to have much flavor on its own, and only really adds texture to the soup. The broth itself is simply a cream taste, nothing overly special or notable about it. Some flavor comes through thanks to the dusting of Old Bay on top, but it could use a little more to add some flavor complexity to the soup. Up and above that, the result is a fairly bland soup. On the plus side, there is a good amount of crab in the soup, resulting in crab being present in just about every spoonful.
