Crab Soup and Crabcakes!

The cream of crab soup is amazing! Fantastic flavor, generous crabmeat within. It's very filling, though, so I could not finish my main course. The crab cake is large so one was more than enough. Full of lump crabmeat and no detectable filler. The restaurant gets very crowded. It has a nice... read more

The crab cakes at this restaurant are amazing. No filler, all crab meat. They serve you alot of food for the money. Its not fancy but it doesn't have to be. The food speaks for itself. I would recommend the crab cakes or the seafood platter.

Looking for "Classic Maryland"? This is a good place to start. My wife and her family turned me on to this jewel and we have been coming back for 25 years. Fancy? Not so much. This is a heart and soul place to get good solid Crab Cakes, Oysters and Fantastic Fried Chicken. The parking can get tight. For some... More

We went here on a recommendation from someone who lives locally. We were told they had the best crab cakes in town. The restaurant is an old family-owned establishment. The crab cakes were large and full of lump crab meat, with no filler. No Old Bay seasoning, but still good, though a bit on the salty side. The fries were... More

Live nearby, heard a lot about this resteraunt. Food was okay, a bit pricey for the ambience and quality. Service a bit slow but pleasant. Great iced tea.

This is an older restaurant, it feels like you stepped back in time a bit. Everyone seemed very nice and friendly. The clientele seemed to be frequent diners. For us though, we found it lacking a bit. Everything seemed to take forever, the servers spent a lot of time chatting behind the bar. The food took a long time to... More

This place is known for being the best locally owned restaurant around. And I have been here prob 5/times but this last time my food tastes bland. I got a small steak and a lobster tail. It came with the salad bar which is GREAT, but when my meal came the lobster tail was not good. It tasted like rubber,... More
