A pizza place that happens to serve high-end crab cakes. Do not expect an upscale experience here. Small closely spaced tables and just OK service. Good crab cake in a wrap and coleslaw. Fries were tasty and easy to eat with my hands, but too...brittle to eat with a fork. It might make sense for them to open a great dining room serving crab cakes.More

Driving through the state and searched TI for where to eat. You guys did not disappoint. Best crab cakes I’ve ever had. They’re big, moist and perfectly cooked. The grilled shrimp is also excellent. Upon entering, it looks like it’s just a take out place....But there’s a hallway on the right that leads to the dining room. The waitstaff is friendly, welcoming and efficient.More

The best of the best in the entire region. Everyone likes to tell travelers to go to a double letter spot, maybe some guys name, or maybe a last name heard of - not here, this is locally known and some of the hands down...best in the area. Top 4 contender for the entire state for crab cake size, and the flavor with no filler or junk is amazing. Rockfish bites were outstanding and the greek salad was a great value. My nephews loved the CocaCola Soda machine, it was one of the reasons we keep going back! Also the cannolis were great!More

You would think a place that serves pizza couldn't have delicious crab cakes but you'd be wrong . . . they are delicious! Place has been renovated and is much nicer. Dining room is still tight but the delicious crab cakes and pizza make up...for it. Servers were very attentive and they moved fast! Place was clean and food came out hot.

As always, fabulous crab cakes. And this time I also tried the fried rockfish bites which were outstanding. The renovated dining room is well done; years ago, the small dining room reeked of grease, but no odor any longer. Service was exceptional and Rich, the...Manager, was even free to stop by and check on us.

So I was visiting my brother and we went to dinner here. He bragged about how good their pizza is and then mentioned they had crabcakes. He doesn't eat crabcakes and it had been a while since I had a really good one. Pizza was...great but the crabcake was off the charts amazing. So good, I'm insisting we go again while I'm still visiting. Easily in the top 5 crabcakes in all of the Baltimore area.More

Was in the area and wanted to try crab cakes, went to this locations restaurant has dine in and carryout. Restaurant has plenty of tables for dinning available. The restaurant has plenty of parking in the plaza. I order the crab cake special which come...with fries, cold slaw, garlic bread. The crab cake was delicious, yummy. I will definitely will order again, the fries was good, the cold slaw had taste. My server was very friendly and attentive, food took about 15 minutes to make but was worth to wait. Hopefully next time I will time to dine in to enjoy my meal even better.More

Ok, it's probably not much of a secret these days, but I've been coming here for 10+ years now, and have never had a bad meal. We come in for group work lunches about once a month, and I'm there with my wife at least...twice a month. The food is phenomenal. Best crab cakes in MD? Yes. Hands down. I've had them all, I keep coming back for more. They're huge, full of actual crab meat and are just so tasty. Not what you'd expect from a pizza joint, but they know what they're doing. Anything with crab from this place rules. The cream of crab soup(that always runs out when I arrive), the crab pretzel, the crab dip- it all kicks butt. But don't stop at the Crabcakes. ANYTHING with the red sauce is amazing! The subs are great(and HUGE!), the pasta dishes are next level and the apps are great. (Ask about the mozzarella moons- you'll never want a stick ever again). The staff has always been so kind and attentive. It's a family vibe, and we always enjoy going. If you're in town for a trip, it's a must visit. If you live in the area, why aren't you there right now??More
