Ark Restaurants with a team lead by Michael Diascro, general manager of the The Rustic Inn Crabhouse in Fort Lauderdale, have transformed the Inlet Village space into the new RUSTIC INN CRABHOUSE. With over 20 years helming the Rustic Inn Crabhouse in Fort Lauderdale, Michael Diascro and his team (both in the kitchen and in the front of the house) bring classic crab and seafood recipes that have made the Fort Lauderdale location world famous for the past 60 years.
The menu, based on the Rustic Inn Crabhouse recipes, offers Golden Crabs, Blue Crabs, Queen Crabs, King Crabs and the restaurant’s world-famous Garlic Crabs. Other seafood favorites such as Clam Chowder, “You Peel ‘Em” Shrimp, Whole Broiled Lobster and other traditional seafood favorites are available. Classic pasta dishes, steaks, hoagies/heroes and Lunch Specials are also available, as well as a Kid’s Menu.
The beverage program features house-made barrel-aged cocktail, locally brewed beers and distilled rums, frozen drinks and an extensive list of single malt scotches, rye and hard-to-find bourbons.
The new Jupiter location is set in an elegant, yet “rustic” space, offering panoramic views of the Jupiter Lighthouse and the Loxahatchee River. The outdoor seating and bar area can accommodate over 200 patrons and with interlocking windows that open up onto the outdoor area, the entire restaurant can dine al fresco. Custom-made picnic benches and the outdoor bar complete the open-air experience. There’s even a dock to allow guests who travel by boat to berth their vessel. With a large dining room, three banquet areas and the largest outdoor seating, the new Rustic Inn Crabhouse can accommodate over 450 guests, perfect for any size party.
