Big Crab

I'm from Delaware, and I drive there every summer to visit relatives that still live there. Every year, I pass through Delmar and drive by the Old Mill Crab House, which is a small, locally-owned seafood place. There's a giant red crab out front. I don't know the history of it, just that people take pictures in front of it all the time. The restaurant makes amazing hush puppies, so I guess it's worth it to go out of your way to see the crab.
