Excellant Crab Cakes

Had a great dinner at Captain's Galley. They are known for crab cakes advertising "Best in the World" I don't know about best in the world but they were excellent. Had a nice salad bar that you can chose as one of your sides. Party of nine and everyone very happy.

This was not our original destination, but we happened upon it when the wait was too long nearby. We sat inside with our young kids to enjoy the dinner menu (only crabs and "light fare" outside. The staff was very friendly and attentive, the restaurant was not fancy but very clean! Our food came promptly and most meals exceeded expectations.... More

My wife and I always enjoyed Captains Galley 11 for their Sunday specials at which we would order the larges lobsters they had. They were all very good as are their famous lump crabcakes. This past Sunday we visited and it is our first since the change in owner ship. First of all the prices have gone up considerably but... More

Crabs have a good taste, all you can eats were on the small size but tasty and well seasoned. They have the best crab cakes in OC. Great ambiance.

Went here last night specifically for a crab cake sandwich. We ate upstairs. We were waited on quickly and brought our food out in a reasonable time. We ordered the broiled crab cake sandwich which comes with coleslaw and fries. Small portion of fries . Crab cake was all jumbo lump, no filler that I could detect. Very good!!!! The... More

We have tried other restaurants in West Ocean City, and have been pleased. However, the prices for this restaurant were high -- fine dining prices -- high $20-low $30 per entree. For that price, I expect cloth table cloths, napkins, and glass -- not plastic. The place is outdated, and the food so-so. It is a tourist trap.

Had lunch at Captain's Galley II on the recommendation of a couple we met on the beach. Turns out is was a really good choice. The crab cakes are some of the best OC area. Service was prompt and courteous. We had a window seat wit a very nice view of the harbor. The restaurant was busy even though we... More

First time we tried this restaurant. We went for lunch before going to the beach. We were advised not to miss the crab cakes. It was excellent advice. They were delicious. They also have a great view of the docks on the upper level.

The dining started off on a negative note, as once seated it took a long time to be waited on. Evidently, they were short staffed. The meal made up for the delay. I'd been eagerly awaiting Maryland crab for months. I was thrilled with the crab imperial. Everyone was happy with their meals. The staff was very friendly and accomodating.... More

We finally tried Captains Gallery, after several years of wanting to try it, but always going to the neighboring restaurants in the same harbor area. The restaurant is a little picky about things like seating and sharing meals. There is a $4 charge for sharing meals and depending on what you want to eat you may want to eat in... More
