Cannot say enough great things about their crabcakes...worth every cent!!!! I go here whenever I'm in Baltimore, atleast once a day if I can manage it. It's in a rough part of town, so bring a male with you and don't bring valuables, but Faidley's is to die for.

I know everyone's review says the same thing, but it's really the best crab cake I've ever had. I ordered the lump crab cake, which was around $14 and worth it, and a the flounder sandwich. Everyone at the table ordered the lump crab cake platter. I'm from the beach area so I really enjoy great seafood and it was... More

In the last 15 years on every occasion that I visit my wife's family in Maryland, I take a long 40 miles trip to the old Historical Lexington Market in the heart of Baltimore for an exceptional taste of the finest food nature can provide the seafood lovers!! The location is a modest place, the food is tasty and the... More

Lexington Market is cool to check out. Not so sure about the "world famous" part, but it's all about trying a crab cake at Faidley. Hands-down, the best crab cake I've ever had. Lots of tasty crabmeat, not too bready, SO delicious. Not inexpensive, but really worth it.

My fiancé and I ordered crab cakes to go. The jumbo lump crab cake was really good. The market itself was OK. I didn't think there was much to see. My recommendation is order the crab cakes to go and eat elsewhere. The folks working there were really nice and friendly.

Based on internet research, it seems like Faidley's is one of the main places to go for crabcakes. I thought it was ok. Pretty expensive though!

I had really high expectations, the crab cakes are good, but they're not amazing. There are tables, but no chairs, be warned, but it's not a huge deal. I thought they were a bit expensive, but not that much.

First time stopping by, looking for a good crab cake for my out of town visitors. Faidleys popped up on several sites, including Tripadvisor, always with good reviews. Figured we would give it a try...was well worth it! Food was incredibly fresh, crab cake was absolutely amazing, no filler! I've never had such delicious fried oysters, very tender with a... More

The crab cakes were the best I have eaten. Well deserved of all of the praise. A must visit for all future trips to Baltimore.
