Cape May Alternative?

Hi folks!

Starting to make plans for our first trip back to Disney in awhile, and looking for an alternative to Cape May. the only real draw for us a few years back was the all you can eat crab legs for my wife. I'm allergic to shellfish and the kids aren't seafood fans, so I'm struggling with paying big $$ for Cape May for just the crab legs. Do y'all have any recommendations for a good crab leg place near Disney that is more budget friendly?
Thanks!

Garden Grove has a seafood buffet as well on Fridays I believe - no idea if the price is better for if they even have crab legs!

I don't think that Cape May serves crab legs on the buffet anymore leasatwise I couldn't find it on any published menu.

You get lobster at Garden Grove included in the price.

Previous poster is correct-no more crab legs at Cape May.

Look on the restaurant forum. There is a big discussion about this going on. People who have just eaten there in the last two weeks are reporting that there are still crab legs but they are just not listed on the menu for some reason.

Yeah, I posted on the restaurant one too since this is restaurants and budget since we're looking for a cheaper alternative. My oldest daughter is turning 10 so I think she is full price at the park restaurants (eats like a bird too, so we'll lose big $$ on Disney buffets!) I'll check out Garden Grove too.
Thanks!

Try Boston Lobster Feast....We ate at 2 different locations and I'm pretty sure it was the one on International Drive that was much better than the one in Kissimmee. My daughter isn't much on seafood, but she found things to eat. Also if you sign up for their emails they send coupons that makes it affordable.

In late March they still had them.

Hope they're better now! We ate there once and that was more than enough for us. The lobsters were tiny, defective (rejects) and they put a few out at a time, then waited ages to bring out more. Was very disgusted at the whole meal. Nothing there was even worth (to us) what they charged. At least at Cape May the food is well presented and we have yet to have a bad experience.
