Delicious soft shell crabs!

Excellent wait staff. The pan sauteed soft shell crabs were absolutely delicious. The sides were the average restaurant stuff, baked potatoes and bland mixed vegetables. The crusty bread was excellent and the creamy crab soup was very good except that I wish it had more crab meat.

A small group of us traveled to Baltimore for one evening of dining in Baltimore for the advertised Restaurant week. We choose Mo's Crab and Pasta House. What a pleasant Surprise. Thinking that the portions would be small because we were given a different menu which included a three course meal. Thinking I was ordering a cup of soup due... More

We stopped here for lunch on a recommendation. Good choice. The crab soup was delicious. We opted for a lighter lunch since we had dinner reservations later. The fried shrimp and crab cakes were perfect. Service could be improved, but it was good, just a little slow to start.

The food had reasonable prices and the portions were quite big. The negatives about our own experience is that the food was a bit bland and the service was quite slow. Lastly we didn't like the automatic 17% added for gratuity. Tips should be left to the customer's discretion.

This place is definitely a place to try the crabs, lasagne, and crab cakes! You won't regret the experience!

The restaurant had such a family friendly atmosphere. We even got a chance to meet Mo the owner and chef. He was so down to earth and hospitable. We took a picture with him. I'm so glad someone recommended his restaurant.

The food was overpriced for the quality. The restaurant was dirty and the bathroom was really disgusting. The one positive I can give is the waitress. She seemed to be the only server there for the entire restaurant and was running her behind off. As stressed out as I can imagine she must have been, she was fast and friendly... More

Visited here one Sunday with my family as we wanted a place for brunch. We wanted a spot close to our hotel (Marriott). A manager from another establishment highly recommended this outdated, poorly staffed spot. Pros: the bar waitress Con: The manager had a very short temper and full of attitude The food was just ok at best Very expensive... More

We arrived in Baltimore and one of the goals was to sample some really good crab cakes and possibly soft-shell crab. Oh, and go to an Orioles game. Prior to arriving we read lots of reviews and articles in Magazines, like "Our Top 25 Crabcakes" in Baltimore magazine. Based on reading the reviews we'd pretty well narrowed our search down...

I had great expectations of good sea food in Baltimore near the inner harbor. Those expectations were not met when my friend and I decided on Mo's Crab & Pasta Facroty on 502 Albermarle Street in Baltimore, MD. Food was mediocre. I ordered the stuffed rockfish. The meal was a little greasy, slimy even. My greek salad was exceptional and... More
