With the help of our fabulous readers, on-air listeners, friends and family foodies … we are revisiting some of the best crab and seafood soups that are available in the Atlantic City area.

There are so many great options to choose from.

Some people only eat soup during the winter months. I love soup during all four seasons.

We will start with a wonderful Seafood Chowder that is available and a real favorite at Resorts Casino Hotel Atlantic City.

Here it is:

The Resorts Seafood Chowder is loaded with a variety of perfectly prepared seafood items … Shrimp, crab, and clams.

I love the Resorts Seafood, it’s so delicious and satisfying.

My favorite creamy crab bisque of all-time is The Crab Trap, located in Somers Point, New Jersey.

This wonderful soup is perfect each and every time and loaded with nice chunks of crab meat in every bite.

Here is a photo of Dan's soup ... it looks wonderful and I can't wait to try it. Dan had a great run at The Water Dog Smoke House in Ventnor and has now opened up his own, successful business.

"Oyster Creek Restaurant and Boat Bar is a classic.

It's a rustic old school restaurant with the best views

right on the water."

"Their menu is filled with amazing appetizers and dinners from basic items like scallops and fried shrimp to dinners like the stuff salmon which is stuffed with crab and Brie cheese topped with a balsamic drizzle and asparagus. Their crab bisque is best in the area, creamy full of flavor. Loaded with crab meat and a old bay sprinkle on top! Best in south jersey hands down."

Patti Kearney - "Fitzpatrick's in Somers Point makes an amazing crab and roasted garlic bisque. Creamy broth with chunks of crab, a little spicy not too. Garlicky just enough."
