Great crab cake, great service!

Really enjoyed this place - we went in for lunch one day and it was completely empty but by the time we had left it was packed. They're known for the crab cakes, and it was nothing fancy - just a great big ball of fresh crab. Waitress was really friendly, plenty of beers on tap.

Duda's isn't large. It isn't fast. It's not even very clean but if you want to taste crab cakes better than anywhere else you have to give it a try. Duda's is an old pub in the middle of Fells Point and next to a classic record store. Wonderful food and historical references make the meal a must for people... More

Awesome crabcakes in Baltimore. Service was great and they have a large selection of beers. Might get crowded during dinner hours but wait for a table its going to be worth it.

On a recent Saturday, when we could not get into a famed local oyster house, the hostess recommended Doda's Tavern around the corner. Although not the gourmet experience we were hoping to have, it was not without its charms. Packed with what appeared to be repeat customers, we noticed that many were eating baseball sized crab cakes. Our friendly but... More

My husband and I were in town just for a fun getaway. We have been to many of the usual Fell's haunts, but we stopped by this joint on a whim. So glad we did! The Bloody Mary was the best we have EVER had......chunky, spicy, flavorful and full of yummy treats (shrimp, pickle, hot pepper, cheese, salami, celery)!! They... More

A local tavern with excellent food, a large variety of beers and friendly service. Old Bay chicken wings, crab dip and crab cakes - all delicious. Would definitely return next time in Baltimore.

Fells Point has a lot of great eateries. But we like to go to Duda's which is a bit hidden at the end of Thames Str. coming from Broadway passing Sound Garden's music store. On the weekend crowded but in a nice way. The service is prompt and you get a good value for your money. We had a Burger... More

I found myself in Fells Point on the last day of crab season. Looking for the last catch. Cool environment. Decided to start with clams. Very bad choice. I hoped for a great east coast calm roll type experience. Instead I got clam strips reminiscent of something in the frozen section at Costco. Really disappointed. Great beer selection. Fun atmosphere.... More

I read a lot of reviews on here as we are planning our trips. This was one of the places with good reviews. We went here around 330 on a Friday after we arrived in town. The bar was small and very slow at the time. Got more crowded for happy hour. The staff were very friendly and chatted duty... More

if you are looking for a quiet bar away from the typical crowded bars of Fells Point then this could be for you. A decent choice of beer, friendly staff and a typical pub food menu which all 4 of us thought to be uninspiring. Having said that, there were no complaints with the food and i thoroughly enjoyed mine.
