Shem Creek Inn Crab Dip

Subject: Recipe for crab dip served by Shem Creek Hotel in Mt Pleasant SC

This was a cold crab dip served by the bar at the pool. It had fresh blue 
crab meat, cheddar cheese,mayo and maybe a little horseradish. It was 
wonderful with captain wafers. I have tried to find it on-line but the 
results are for a hot dip....this was cold and wonderful! I have tried to 
duplicate (even picking out the crab meat from fresh crabs), but it's not 
quite the same.

Maybe someone can help?


Hi Regina,

I believe that you mean the Shem Creek "Inn", not the Shem Creek "Hotel". I had no success at all locating a recipe for crab dip from the Shem Creek Hotel or Inn.

There are a lot of restaurants in the Shem Creek/Mount Pleasant area, and all of them appear to serve crab dip. One of the most famous was The Trawler Restaurant. There are recipes for the Trawler's crab dip at the link below. These are all different, so I doubt if any one of them is the actual recipe - They are "tastes-like" recipes. The first three or so contain the same ingredients as your description of the Shem Creek Inn's dip, so one of them is probably very similar. See:

Trawler's Crab Dip

I found the below recipe for "Shem Creek Crab Dip" posted multiple times on the web. It may be the one that you say is a hot dip. It's cooked, but it doesn't say to serve it either hot or cold. It does not have any horseradish, and it has a worse problem. The third ingredient is a mystery. It says
"1 package Frozen ________?"
It doesn't say what the frozen ingredient is...? It's posted just like that on multiple web pages.

I'll post this in case a reader can help, but I think your best bet is to try the Trawler's crab dip recipes.

Phillips Department Store Burgers

Hi , i'm looking for the recipe for the beef burgers made at the old Phillips dept stote , in Omaha NE? 
I know it's a very limited chance on finding anything but I loved them soo much, I'm desperate to find it!!! 
They were loose meat, no tomato product, maybe some melted Velveeta or cheese, and was thickened a little  
with probably flour? I know it's probably a long shot , but also if you know of a recipe for ANY thing like them, 
I would be more than willing to give the recipe a try? They were very beefy tasting,and anything I've tried always 
seems to be missing something... thanks in advance ...  

Hello Dolores,

Sorry, I had no success finding any mention of the Phillips Dept. Store burgers. I’ll post this in case a reader can help.

The only loose meat burger recipe without any tomato products that I have is here:
