Went with my family Saturday night , about a 45 minute wait. They only had number 1 crabs left , you can call ahead if you want to reserve a different size. A dozen of the number ones were $80. We decided to go for it since we were in Maryland after all. They were great , lots of old... More

We do not live near this restaurant. Whenever we are in town to visit our relatives we go the this place several times a week for lunch or early dinner. The service is usually quick and efficient. The staff is friendly and polite and will offer recommendations on the daily specials or what type of fish is fresh caught. We... More

Good food. Relaxing atmosphere. Good happy hour for beverages. Parking can be a little hard. Like many other seafood restaurants, crabs are top dollar

My family and I landed at BWI and wanted to have some great seafood, so we stopped into Seaside Restaurant after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. We had some steamed crabs, snow crab legs, shrimp, and soft shell crabs, and all were fantastic!! We took our time with a couple beers and just had an amazing lunch. Don't miss this place!

Living in the Baltimore area for years, I have tried dozens of crab houses in downtown and suburban Baltimore, Laurel/Columbia area, Annapolis area, Kent Island, Eastern Shore, and others. Now that I live just south of DC I've tried all of the local places from Bethesda to Fairfax. The one place that stands above the rest (and there are some... More

Seaside is not a very fancy place - but the food is GREAT. In particular the seafood. The steamed crabs are always good, and the crab fluffs - to die for! Service is usually really good, and the atmosphere is very casual.

We got a bushel of jumbo crabs to take home to NJ to have with friends. Crabs were steamed perfectly and the crabs were very high quality. Price was fair.

Traveled from Baltimore to York, PA for work. Found this on my tripadvisor app. Slight detour off the path, but so worth it. I started with the Maryland crab soup and ended with the crab cake sandwich. Great food start to finish with great service too.
