Great crabcakes and stuffed shrimp!!!

We arrived on a Saturday night and were seated about 45 minutes after arriving. Cool atmosphere inside a boat but not very big. Our server Greg was funny and efficient and greeted us with a smile. We got the shrimp appetizer with lemon garlic which was ok not great. I got the crab cakes which... read more

We went to the Crabhouse this summer to have crab as we were in Baltimore for the first time. It was a beautiful evening to sit on the patio and enjoy the crab. We enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the food. Our waiter was wonderful and helped us to pick the best choice for us.

After spending the day @ Fells Point we were directed by one of the locals to Captain James for dinner. Man did that guy know what he was talking about. A great summer day to sit on the patio overlooking the dock and enjoy the breeze. Our waiter was great but the best was yet to come, the all you... More

Off the beaten path with plenty of free parking and access from water taxi, if you came to Baltimore to try the crab cakes you must try these...hard to find any filler or bread crumbs however large delicious clumps of lump crab were in abundance, and the same goes for the stuffed mushrooms...unbelievable amount of succulent lump crab

I really wanted to like this place. On the plus side, our server was great and some of the food was quite tasty. The seafood nachos are an interesting and delicious starter, certainly worth a try. The salmon pasta dishes are also quite good with lots of flavor and large portions. Unfortunately the restaurants signature crabcakes fall far flat of... More

We came here after picking up a Groupon, and it was an excellent choice. We had to go with a late reservation (9:45pm) because they were filled up, and when we arrived there were probably 15 people waiting. Our server, Greg, was very helpful, attentive, quick, and made pleasant conversation when he checked up on us. We got a dozen... More

I attended the restaurant with my family on a Tuesday evening when the special was 1 1/2 lb Lobster dinner with 2 sides for $14.99. My reservation was for 7 PM which was a reasonable hour for dinner. We had to wait 10 minutes to be seated and as soon as we sat down, the server served the lady to... More

A large group from our yacht club had breakfast at Captain James. The food choices were great and lots of seafood choices. The prices were extremely reasonable. My husband had Pancake Tacos which he thoroughly enjoyed. Also need to mention the Great Bloody Marys!!! Will definitely visit again.

This was my first experience at a crab house and I couldn't be more pleased. I sat outside at the crab shack across the street from the restaurant and enjoyed the amazing view, all you can eat crab special and a few Heavy Seas Pale Ale (highly recommend and very reasonably priced during happy hour). The service was great. My... More
