Jurassic crab cake.

This was my first visit there, wished I had tried it earlier. The menu is incredibly creative, and has something for every taste. I wanted to see what the "Lighthouse" lived up to its picture. Yes, it did, in spades. My sister and me both got the Lighthouse, and the crabmeat is hands down... read more

We went after a hockey game with about 6 families and it was so easy to order and service was great! But the FOOD! Wow it was in-creditable! The Crab Cake Sandwich was so good and the price was right!! I was so happy to found this place on Trip Advisor!

Stopped for lunch on the way from DC to Baltimore. Tried the crab cake dinner with some crab chowder. The crab cakes were excellent along with the accompaniments and also enjoyed the chowder although we were surprised it was tomato not cream based. Service was fast, friendly and efficient.

We like this place mostly for lunch though we have had takeout for dinner. The prices are okay though slightly to the high medium range. The food has always been very good.

The service is good and no tipping is allowed (if you tip it goes to charity). Their cream of crab soup and Ahi Tuna sandwiches are two of my favorites and they have a number of... More

Chesapeake Grille and Deli in Bowie is a home-town favorite. The menu is varied, the food is freshly prepared, delicious, and reasonable. I've had their burgers and pasta dishes which run about $10.00 a plate. Once, when I ordered pasta and it was too spicy, I was asked if I liked it. I told them that although the flavor profile...
