Being born and raised 5 miles away I have been going to Ocean Pride (OP as the regulars call it) for thirty years. I went with parents, friends, dates and it was a regular meeting place for us when were in our twenties. I have seen its ups and downs but was excited when new ownership took over 7 or... More

The crabs are decent, if a little overpriced, but the real delight is the cream of crab soup. Some of the best I've had anywhere.

This is our regular place for crabs, every 5 months or so. A special treat. Just a dozen crabs, pitcher of beer, and each other and we're happy. The crabs were a tad smaller than we thought for XL, but they were great. The one that wasn't was replaced quickly, with a few extra claws!! Waitress handled the entire tent... More

I had 3 brothers and 2 sisters-in-law visiting from across the country. Dan and Sandy, from Texas, were looking forward to having crabs in Baltimore. We went to Ocean Pride and the experience was not a good one.

Ok, you expect to pay top price for crabs on Mem Day weekend but hope to get what you pay for. Paid $95/doz for medium size (advertised as XL), mostly empty crabs. Two were so empty and light that you could crush them with your hand. Had a similar bad experience here some time back but gave them a second... More

We went in for a celebratory dinner and steamed crabs. We've eaten there a number of times, but don't always get crabs. They were good, though a smidgeon over cooked. The outstanding factor though was our waitress. I'm afraid I may not get her name right, but I think it was Mackie. She was energetic, knowledgable, and very responsive to... More

Ok so I had never tasted crab cakes before, and now I love them! But this is only one part of the story, the entire menu was actually quite varied and everything we tried was excellent, from the crab to the shrimp to the draft beer. Staff were really kind and helpful too!

Standard neighborhood bar but great crab cakes. Everyone seemed to know every one else there. Great draft beer.

I have lived in Baltimore for almost 40 years and had never been to OP but it will definitely not be my last! Me & 10 friends met there for crabs & cocktails. We had an awesome time! The crabs were DELICIOUS! We also tried other seafood on the menu that was DELICIOUS too! The atmosphere was nice. Waiters were... More
