I am visiting the Eastern Shore for a few days and I want to share a new find: Jimmie & Sook’s! Not only do they serve the meatiest soft-shell crab sandwich I’ve ever seen, but the raw oysters were also excellent. Huge and fresh!
I also tried soft-shell clams, which I never even heard of. They are an acquired taste, even for old-school Eastern Shore families. You have to rinse them in water, then you dunk them in melted butter.
Jimmie & Sooks sold a “waterman’s dozen” — like, 14 — raw oysters for about $9. Try that hat trick at home!
They have live music 4 nights a week, a bar, and lunch counter. I will definitely be back.
