E R has one of the best crab cake deals in the DC - Baltimore area. It is just a good country area that makes no bones about using asian crab meat not duping customers into believing they use Maryland Crab Meat like G and S does. Their Wednesday crab cake deal is awesome! Two big cakes fried never baked... More

About a year go I ate here and the crab cakes were not as good as I have had in the pass. This visit they were very good and huge as usual. I'm glad i returned and will continue to visit when I'm in the area.Good experience of Maryland crab cakes.

A long-time resident took a group of us to enjoy these award-winning crab cakes -- hands down, the best I've ever had! Get the un-fried Jumbo Crab Cake (one crab cake is big enough for 2 to share) with huge chunks of fresh MD crab. Cream of crab soup was also delicious -- make sure to add dashes of table-side...

Was told to head here for crab cakes and seafood. It did not disappoint. The food was excellent and they served lots of it (to be honest, way too much). Bread, two sides, salad bar, etc. The atmosphere is a dive bar - it's an old house, I believe. The service is friendly. It's definitely a good spot to hit... More

This is a local family restaurant sering some of the best crab cakes in Maryland. Nothing fancy, just a good salad bar and people serving your needs. Can't go wrong here.

Heard this place had great crab cakes. Unimpressed by what others say is a great crab cake. Restaurant needs to be gutted and redone. Looks old and dirty and I felt like I was sitting with couple next to us. Save your money and time and find another place to eat. I cannot honestly recommend this one.

Love the jumbo lump crab cakes, crab imperial, and cream of crab soup. (See a theme here?) As a lifelong resident of Annapolis I have had the aforementioned dishes from countless restaurants as we'll as homemade and they are the best. Their crab imperial topped potato skins are great too! The portions are very generous and I always have at... More

This restaurant may not be fancy or glamorous but their fried seafood rivals that found in a New England restaurant and NO ONE MAKES A BETTER JUMBO LUMP CRABCAKE! The fresh vegetables, particularly the green beans are also delishous. Better to go any time other than the summer months as the Annapolis tourists have found this spot.

We enjoyed the crab cakes and the fries were delicious. The salad bar was limited but had all we needed. Both of cream of crab and md crab soup were excellent. The prices were very reasonable and the place was pack. Go for the good food not the atmosphere.

Edgewater Restaurant, in Edgewater, MD, is a smaller hometown restaurant that has received many rave reviews from locals. Visited on Sunday evening before Christmas with family. Restaurant seemed to be fairly busy which I take as a good sign. Menu prices were very comparable to other establishments in the area for similar items. Upon walking into the restaurant we noticed...
