We went here in mid October. It was one of the few places open. Their cream of crab soup is one of the best I've had. Lots of crabmeat and creamy. Their hius puppies were good too. Great service.

A week ago my husband and I went to Crab Alley for hard shell crabs. We arrived about 3:30PM on a Saturday and the place had plenty of seats available. We started with their Maryland crab soup. One of the best I ever had. We ordered a pitcher of beer and a dozen crabs. The crabs were extra large. Great... More

This is not a fancy place. As such I would expect to get some semblance of value for my dollar. For $18, I got a small crab cake and even smaller portions of potato salad and cole slaw. Really! The food tasted fine but hardly constituted a meal.

Crab Alley is one of finest restaurants in Ocean City, MD (read East Coast) for crab recipes. The location, ambiance at Crab Alley may not be as great as Phillips in Baltimore, MD or Island Creek in Boston, MA but crab, seafood quality is much better. Every time I'm in OC, I make it a point to go to Crab... More

Excellent excellent crabs!! I would recommend getting there by 6:30pm on a weekend (at the Latest!) if you want a chance at XL crabs! Otherwise you'll be stuck with medium which no person in their right mind eats! Others: Hush puppies were a bit dry but decent. The potato salad is a star. The fish tacos weren't bad either but...

The last time we were here was 2 years ago so we were hoping it was still as good as it was then. My wife ordered the soft crab dinner and I ordered the Ocean Scallops. The soft crabs were plump, hand breaded just right, with a delicious briny flavor. The sides of coleslaw and potato salad were very, very... More

We have been going to Crab Alley for many years. The food and service has always been excellent. The crab imperial is very tasty.

A group of 8 of us went for lunch on Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was nice and we sat outside to enjoy the beautiful day. The food was good and the crabs were huge. I believe this place serves local crabs. I had crab dip and it was good but not great. Some of the others had the crab soup... More

We have been to Crab Alley many times while on vacation in the Delmarva area. We hadn't been back in 3 years and didn't know what to expect. It was excellent. We had the snow crab feast for two which consisted of a "cup" (more like a bowl) of delicious cream of crab soup for me and Maryland-style crab soup... More
