Had 2 crab cake sandwiches with FF and a bowl of soup. Sandwiches come with homemade chips. We opted for ff. Sandwiches were good. Served with lettuce and tomato (tomatoes cut too thick for my liking) remoulade sauce was very good. Cream of crab soup was excellent! I would recommend that over the sandwich. It was that good. Good flavor... More

I can't blame this review on the staff. They were courteous and pleasant. So the rest...atmosphere not good, bright lights, not relaxing. The Maryland crab soup was probably the worst I've ever had. Eight dollars for a bowl of vegetables (with mushrooms?) with strands of crab meat. Crab cakes ok but will never return.

We arrived with a large group during busy 4th of July week. The great staff seated us surprisingly quickly and took excellent care of us throughout the meal. While the décor is a bit plain, you won't notice. You will focus all of your attention on the great crabs and fried chicken! We all left satisfied and very happy!

We needed a break from the sun, and the Blue Crab provided. Our food was excellent, and our server was attentive. Can't wait to return!

There is a group of ladies (average 20 of us) who meet once a month in the off season for lunch. We ask for separate checks which so many restaurants are not happy to do. We love to go to the Blue Crab for so many reasons. Separate checks, yes, but more than that we are welcomed by the owner... More

Always fresh, always great service, good prices, good beers, outside seating is best. On the shady side of the street so it's good for a break from the beach sun.
