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

We had tried many places over the years and we have settled on Crab Alley as our favorite place for steamed crabs. We have always had great service there and the crabs are always hot and seasoned the way we like them. Several of our kids have tried the seafood dishes in the past and liked what they got. We...

The only good thing I can really say about this place is that I really liked their hush puppies and watermelon sangria. Our server, Albert, was somewhere between rude and unpleasant. He never smiled, seemed annoyed by our presence, and was less than helpful. We had to ask for children's menus, and had to ask other customers to borrow their... More

We go to Crab Alley a lot and take our friends and family too. The cream of crab soup is a favorite and their crabcakes are super too! You can eat outside or inside and the service is great. Very friendly!

Was looking for a dinner spot and passed by this place. There was no wait on a Friday night, so that was a big factor. We were seated and greeted about 5 minutes later. Our waitress was an older woman who wasn't the most talkative. We weren't given too many options. We decided against the crab and got a fee... More
