Well, they have crabs and that's about it. Service was lacking, other menu items weren't very good, and basically it's way overpriced. The atmosphere is horrible - old building, reeks of stale beer, not a real roof, dirty. Did I mention they had decent crabs? I think you could find a better place for crabs and seafood in the area...

If you're a "SpongeBob SquarePants" fan, and always thought it would be fun to eat at the Chum Bucket, this place is for you. I know it's a seafood house, but is the boat that catches ut all parked right outside?!?! This is downtown Bethesda, not the wharf in a Maine fishing village. The smell, cleanliness, and ambiance scream that... More

We decided to have some seafood that night and decided to pick this restaurant since it is closest to were we are. It was Saturday and the place was almost empty. My wife choose the crab cake and I choose the king crab legs. We had cream of crab soup before. The soup was not really hot but taste good.... More

My wife and I had dinner there tonight, courtesy of a GROUPON which we paid $20 for $40 worth of food. After we bought it, I read the reviews of others on tripadvisor, and prayed it wouldn't be that bad. Well, I must say, I was pleasantly surprised in that respect - it beat all the bad reviews. We sampled... More

We refer often to TripAdvisor for restaurants and travel, and were concerned when we read the negative reviews on Steamers. We had received a groupon gift for an all you can eat crab meal for 4. Not expecting much, we were pleasantly surprised at how excellent and attentive the service was from the moment we walked in and throughout our... More

We had the crab feast at Steamers while the football games were on and it got loud, so if you want a quiet experience, don't go when there's a game on. It was lots of fun, as we're all fans. The food was good, ate crabs for hours, what more could you want? It was an interesting building, there was... More

This was a typical MD Crab house - no frills but great crabs and sides! Outdoor seating was available and we took advantage due to the beautiful August day (wired huh). This was our first time here and it was because we had a "crab feast for 4 " Groupon. Not sure if it was the coupon or just a... More

Only come here if you want to eat bad crabs and get sick. Went there tonight with the family. We ordered a dozen large crabs. First, the crabs were tiny and not at all what we would call "large". Further, many crabs in the batch we ordered were just bad. By "bad" I mean they even smelled rotten. I told... More
