Crab cakes are wonderful, they will ship them anywhere in the Continental United States ! They often offer a Groupon for $40.00 Worth of food for $20.00. I've tried crab cakes all over Maryland and Box Hill is top of the list !!!

1st time visiting and enjoyed my meal. Decent prices and good food. Be prepared to wait if dining in on a Saturday. Waited about 20 25 minutes but worth it. Staff friendly and fast.
