I would be wary of this feed unless you are a member or know someone who is. My wife and I tried this and are not members nor knew anyone and we were sat in a remote table. Unfortunately, this table did not get served much during the crab/salad/etc. time slot. The all-you-can-eat crab portion was only for about an hour or so before the auctions and we unfortunately, did not get our money's worth in terms of crab. I love crab feeds and giving to charity but you may want to investigate feeds other than this one.

Chris Thank you for your feedback. I will ask our volunteer servers to ensure their assigned tables and guests have an enjoyable experience while helping support community volunteering with Belmont Rotarians. Sirinee

That's a shame that Chris did not enjoy the Crab Feed and my first thought was, was it indeed our Crab Feed. We do not assign tables and we conduct our Auction before we serve the Crab, that way everyone can enjoy the "experience" with their fellow "tablemates". Nothing is perfect in Rotary, but perhaps our elimination of Polio throughout the world, or helping provide some 600,000 plus wheelchairs to people who did not have mobility, or more educational grants each year than Rhodes, Fullbright, Rockefeller and Ford Foundations combined comes pretty close. Even Belmont Rotary giving over $500,000 in local school scholarships over the years, $40,000 to the Library may qualify. We are volunteers from all walks of life and professions our Crab Feed has many aspects to it apart being a Fund Raiser so we can support the community as previously described, not the least the chance to connect with our community, make new friends, greet old ones and in general have a great time.

I was looking forward to my first crab feed, but after the comment by Chris I am having second thoughts. I guess we will go to the wine and wishes instead.

I don't understand why I'm being asked to pay fifty frickin' bucks to feed these ungrateful crustaceans! I just plain don't get it. Why can't the little buggers feed themselves? Maybe they should just go on welfare or something...
