Cumberland, Maryland is a nice break for my wife and me. We enjoy the views and the walks along the canal. We also enjoy walking around the town. But last night the weather was wet and chilly and so we took a short walk down the canal boardwalk to a restaurant called the Crabby Pig. We just had to have... More

This restaurant is conveniently located behind the Fairfield Inn on the Canal Tow Path so it's very convenient and was recommended by the Front Desk at the Hotel. One of the best meals I've ever had? Not even close! I ordered the fried oyster platter since you very seldom find them on a restaurant menu. Unfortunately they weren't fried hard... More

This is the second time we ate at the crabby pig. The food is great and the prices are average. We had seat outside because they were very busy when we got there. Both my husband meal and my were wonderful. We keep seeing a lot of blue crabs coming out and they looked great. Will eat here again.

The menu is extensive but focus seems to be on BBQ and traditional east coast seafood dishes, broiled or fried. it has a pub atmosphere, is laid back, and clean. I thought the food was ok, nothing special, but not a disappointment except I would not recommend the Chesapeake Crab soup. We live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland so... More

Had lunch while on the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail. The selection was not large, but the food and service were quite sufficient. The Pork Sandwich was tasty with plenty of well-cooked pulled pork. The Angus burger was good and cooked to my liking. The outdoor deck was great for a spring afternoon and allowed us to watch our bikes... More

The restaurant was listed under casual dining. Dress-wise, it was casual - price-wise, it was not. Although the food was delicious (both the BBQ and crab legs), the price of $100+ for a family of 4 was more than casual dining to me. But I would go back.

Stopped in before a bike trip on the C&O. If you realize that this is a place that sells seafood while being located in the mountains, it's pretty good for what it is. Plus the staff was very friendly and the location is perfect for travelers on the trail.
