Took my girlfriend here on a date, and was not disappointed! The cream of crab soup was spectacular. We also greatly enjoyed the crab dip. The broiled crabcakes are some of the best I've had in the area (admittedly I am not a huge fan of crabcakes). We had to wait for a table, but less than one drink at... More

I had dinner here with co-workers that live on the area. Their recommendation was spot on. Local-owned, local-operated, old house ambience, a nice place to have a casual, laid-back meal with friends. Crab cakes were very good, first time for a deep fried potatoe & it was good too.

I have been to this eatery many times, it used to sooo good. the last three times I went the wait for food was very long and the sense of freshness, has withered. for seafood, I will look elsewhere.

Nice family style dining. Good food. I liked the smaller size over the larger types of restaurants. It felt more homey. The service was good.

You can ask anyone in the state of Maryland and they will say this place has the best crab cakes and they truly are!

Dark, dated, crowded rooms with borderline rude staff. Customer service and politeness is definitely not a strength here. Nonetheless, Edgewater Restaurant has excellent jumbo lump crab cakes and at very reasonable prices. It's a "must visit" if you're local.

Ok not fancy always crowded and have awesome crab cakes! This is a step back in time kind of place. Old school salad bar features the typical stuff. Everyone at our table loved the beets at the salad bar! The blue cheese dressing is awesome. Place can be noisy when crowded and the pack you in. Best room is by... More
