Edge of the World & a World class CRAB CAKE experience !

Wonderful Crab Cake, good salad bar, OUTSTANDING service. Easy access adequate parking. Down home experience, like time stopped in 1955 ! Crowded due to their OUTSTANDING option but worth the WAIT !

Wife and I drove for over an hour and half on recommendation from a friend that this restaurant was the best for crab cakes. Read reviews and looked for address before leaving our home also wanted to note their opening hours on Sunday 6/28/15 website stated OPEN 12:00 - 9:00pm. Got there and guess what Big Sign stated we will... More

Went here for dinner with the intentions of ordering their fabulous crab cakes that I have heard so much about and ended up ordering the soft shell crab special that night. OMG! Plate arrived at the table with 3 of the most beautiful fried soft shell crabs I have ever seen. They were with out a doubt the best I... More

I live near this restaurant, and although we have had some decent meals there we will not visit again. Awhile back our local paper was highlighting the many restaurants in this area that serve crab and crab related food items. It was an eye opener to see how many eateries do not serve local crab from Maryland or Virginia. In... More

If you love crab cakes, you will have to go a long way to find a better one! I can say the same for the fried shrimp. Not much to look at, and it looks a little tired, and they don't take reservations, and there isn't much of anyplace to sit while you wait for a table, but the food... More

The Best Crab cakes In Town... Or anywhere I have been for that matter... The service is Impeccable and the serving sizes a portions are adequate... Just an all around comfortable place to dine and the food is always great... Don't forget to try the mints on the bar in the glass bowl before you leave... another attention to detail...

Everything was delicious! Crab cakes are HUGE, between a baseball and softball size and with little filler -- all crab meat -- yummmmyy!!!! The soups are delicious. The side options include lightly breaded fried okra, twice baked potatoes, a basic salad bar, and more. This place is not fancy, more small and shaby but in a good way. It is... More

I have always heard you should go here for the crab cakes and I finely made it in October. It's an old house converted in to a restaurant so you have various small rooms for diners. I guess all those who rate this so highly really like the quaint home style atmosphere. The crab cake was good but nothing else... More

I visited this restaurant in November 2014 for my cousin birthday. After reading the reviews and hearing her rave about it, I was eager to try it for myself. I love hidden gems, so I just knew this would be one to add to my list of local favorites. My review: 1. The decorations were dated 2. It was very... More
