My husband, three year old son and I ate at Crab Alley during our recent vacation to OCMD. We had terrible luck with dinner the evening before and were looking for something different. When we arrived at Crab Alley, we were seated immediately on the upstairs outside deck, which was our choice so our son could watch the boats come... More

The clams casino had too much oil, baked potato hard and old, oysters were overpriced and a very small portion. Soup was great. Sad we came here :'(

Once again very satisfied with the food and prices. The Maryland Crab soup was awesome and the med crabs cooked just perfect.

Went to dinner with Hubby and daughter. We looked up where to go for crabs and Crab Alley got a great review. They both had all you can eat crabs which also came with corn on the cob. The crabs were great and the corn was also very sweet and tender. I had broiled scallops. The portion was large and... More

We decided to take a drive here from our hotel because of the reviews, and were so glad we did! We didn't do one of the crab feasts, and in fact my husband and I ended up ordering soft shell crabs, sea scallops, hush puppies, french fries... all so good. But the best were the raw oysters we ordered- very... More

This was our first time here and we were seated within less than 20 minutes. Highly recommend the cream of crab soup (we ended up ordering 2 bowls). Next time we will get the all you can eat crab legs but our crab cakes this time were very good. The staff is very friendly and the setting is beachy and... More

This is a must stop place to eat while you are in OC Maryland. The cream of crab soup is out of this world, and the prices are great. We have made it a point to eat here every time we are on vacation there. We have been there during the summer season, and my husband and I went there... More

My family and I have been here several times but most recently in April 2014. We dined upstairs near the bar area. We ordered some crabs, snow crab legs and shrimp. Everything was cooked perfectly. The wait staff is friendly and they do well filling drinks. There have been occasions where something was overcooked but we returned it not problem... More
