I went here for there Wednesday night special and crab cakes they were very good, we get a friendly waitress that has been there for a very long time she always happy and very kind, the only complaint is they need a renovation it looks very old and they need to keep it family style but remove that 70's looking...

We usually visit 4 to 5 times a year and always eat at G&M in lithicum. However, we ate at Edgewater today and I am now a follower. The best I have ever eaten. ALL crab and baked . At lunch incudes salad bar and a side for $18.95. A bargain and wonderful.

I have been going to this restaurant for almost a decade now and they know exactly what good food should taste like. The food looks and tastes like it came out of mom's kitchen and portions are sized exactly proportional to price so you leave feeling satisfied that you got your money's worth. For appetizer, go for a cup of... More

On advice from a friend, I drove from Winston-Salem N.C. to this restaurant. Just to try the crab cakes. Didn't dine there, took them home. Best crab cakes I ever had. Hats off to edgewater restaurant, it was worth the drive.

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.
