Great crab cakes and milkshakes!

We took a boat ride and two ladies told us about Chick and Ruth's crab cakes so we decided to try them. They were delicious!!!! All crab meat!!!! The milk shakes were good too! They have a 6 pound milkshake if you are interested!

Long lines here on weekends. Why? The food is just diner food, quarters are cramped and it's not all that clean. The atmosphere is interesting if you are into politics.

Fun atmosphere, good food. A bit too much food for me. Many, many choices, and crab cakes are good. Portions were too large, and my sandwich was greasy.

The food here is amazing. I had this incredible crab cake Benedict that was TO. DIE. FOR. The problem is, I don't particularly care for crowded, noisy places. And Chick and Ruth's Delly is definitely crowded and noisy. The people in the booth next to us were so close that it felt like they were sitting with us. If you... More

This is the type of place that truly everyone needs to visit. Have had several very good sandwiches here. Tight quarters so be prepared to make new friends sitting next to you.

We went based on a recommendation of a local. We ordered the crabcakes and they were very good. The establishment is not fancy but has the classic diner food with some yummy updates. The bread is baked fresh daily and the pies are homemade as well. We didn't have room for pie after eating our large portions so we took... More

A fun and interesting place, but be prepared for tight seating! Seriously, you will make friends with all; the staff, other diners, and anyone near you! Food was good, but I think you go for the experience more than for the food!

Someone suggested I go to Chick and Ruth's Deli to get a crab cake. Really, I have walked by this place countless times on my way to eat at other restaurants. I never thought about going into a deli..........really. But, this person was adamant about their crab cake, so I thought I would give it a try although I had... More
