You would think at the beach, good crab cakes are on every corner. Well that's not the case. Try this spot. Nothing fancy but if you enjoy a crab cake with jumbo lump and a touch of filler, this is the spot. The crab cake was fresh and cooked to order or you can take home and cook yourself. I've... More

You were right, best crab cake I ever had and I live minutes from the Chesapeake bay around Maryland. Crabs hand picked in front of you and the roll just right. Wish I had thought to bring some home. Thanks, I'm sure your dad is proud of you.

Very Very Good. We always get them for family dinners and special occasions. But they are really good whenever we have got them. I would definitely go back!

I wait all winter just to come down to Wildwood and get a crab cake sandwich from here! I can honestly say I have never had a bad experience with their food. I wish there were more stores closer to the Philly area!

Small location with another store inland that highlights their crabcakes but also offers some other options of fish and stuff. But the crabcakes are on the higher cost side but worth it as the quality and flavor are exceptional. A great stop off en route or returning home for dinner. Highly recommended

These cakes are quite simply the best. Full of lump and claw meat. Their villas store did not make it but they are opening another store on 96th street in Stone Harbor this season.

Discovered the Villas location August 2013 and quickly become hooked. Both locations had disconnected phone numbers on 12/23 and the Villas location looked shut down...not even a "closed for the season" sign. Hopefully it's just a seasonal thing; maybe their regular customers know the pattern but this was a potential loss of business.
