“Crab Cakes, Steak, and Booze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

This is a casual sit-down restaurant with a separate bar area. The menu items range from hamburgers to crab cakes to rib-eye steak. My favorite meal is the crab cake with asparagus and Caesar salad. The crab cakes always have large lumps of crab meat and are cooked just right. I have also tried the hamburger, which must have had half a pound of perfectly cooked ground beef. If you live in the neighborhood, you should check out this place. The lively bar area makes this a better place for meeting friends than for a quiet romantic escape, but the menu is good for many occasions--it even has a few items for kids.

“Great Crab Cakes 2”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is another restaurant that is famous for crab cakes- I also went to G & M- both places claim they are the best. Both have great crab cakes- if you like them- big chunks. This restaurant seems more formal that G & M, but both restaurants are wonderful, with great crab cakes and plenty of other good options. They have two locations- I went to the one in Glen Burnie. Everyone enjoyed their food. Much better crab cakes in the Baltimore area than almost everywhere else I have had them.

“Average place, food ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We tried Pappas Sports Bar, on the recommendation of our hotel staff who noted we would receive a 10-percent discount if we showed our room key and it was close by -- a plus for a weary traveler. I did not appreciate the script from our server, who was pushing drinks, appetitzers, etc., but I know it's his job. The food was average at best, and the crabcakes were smaller but priced the same as another restaurant with a better atmosphere that we frequent. I don't know that I would go back to Pappas for dinner, but maybe sandwiches ... maybe.

“Wonderful happy hour!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place has a nice bar with good happy hour prices. Non seafood appetizers are half off from 3-7 daily. On wed and thur bottles of wine are half off from 5-7. All of the food we have ordered has been good with generous portions. At happy hour you get 10 wings for $5. Adeal hard to beat. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful. There has always been enough staff to keep up with the crowds so you do not have to wait to get your drink filled. The sandwiches we have ordered were large and very good. The regular prices were fair and worth what they give you. It is a casual laid back atmosphere but you do not feel like an outsider when you go in. They also have keno.

“Superb Crab Cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel check-in clerk for our request of a nearby good place to get crab cakes, Maryland style. Boy, did she suggest a great place which has obviously been around a long time, well attended by locals, and super food and service. Wish it were near our NC home.
