Amazing crabs with FAIR prices! In Baltimore that is nearly impossible to find! And literally everything from the appetizers to the seafood is almost addictive!

“We love the crab ranch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

My family loves the crab ranch! Jim is always so good to us. The food is always fresh when we are there. They have a great menu of seafood and great southern dishes. This restaurant is very casual and very laid back. This a great choice for downtown Towson.

“Bash'em don't smash'em”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We always have a great experience at S & J Crab Ranch. Weather we stop in for a quick bite or dine in while enjoying crabs, the atmosphere, service, and food is always superb. Our hostess, Alyssa, is very attentive and always greets us with a big smile and hello. What ever you get here you are sure to enjoy. From there yummy soups, monster onion rings, awesome pasta salad, tasty BarBQ items, nightly specials all are enjoyable. Don't forget the Steamed Crabs...steamed to order and piping hot they are heavy, tasty, and sure to please. Come on in and experience what Towson has to offer. Towson's best kept secret. Pass the word.
