Was in Baltimore for a game and stopped here for dinner! The Crab Imperial was mouth watering! The portions were large, the service was impeccable and the restaurant ambiance was outstanding. Great place for couples and families. We will definitely visit this restaurant when we are in the area again.

Food was hot and very tasty. Even the bread was warm and fresh. Service was excellent. Somewhat hard to find but they have great signage. The GPS was taking us past the restaurant.

The crab cakes are humongous. It's the best crab cakes we ever had. Lots and lots of crab. I mean big chunky pieces not tiny little stringy pieces. And very little filler. It was so big my husband and I shared one. We can't wait to go again.

Every time we go to Baltimore, we make time for a dinner (or lunch) at Timbuktu. Their specials are always a good deal and the crab cakes are the best around. A gem, hidden away in Hanover.

Our visitors wanted crab cakes, so we made reservations at Timbuktu since it's close to home and still rated one of the best in the area. Almost everything about the experience was disappointing in some way, with the possible exception of the crab pretzel appetizer which delighted the teenager in our party and was big enough for all to share....

Went for lunch...crab cakes were just amazing--huge and all crabmeat! We ordered the crab cake sandwich, but I didn't even touch the roll! Fries were ok. They tasted like typical frozen steak fries. Good cole slaw. The onion rings were phenomenal!! Some of the best I've ever had--a little pricey though at $11. We shared a shrimp cocktail and it... More

My crab cake was excellent, the best I've had in a long time. My fiance ordered the stuffed flounder. It took a long, long time to arrive, but when it did, it was delicious. The wait staff was very attentive. Thoroughly enjoyed my meal.

This restaurant is a hidden jewel in the Hanover/ Arundel Mills area. The service is impeccable (Unlike their sister property G&M's), and their food is super delicious. I highly suggest the crabcakes and their steak is very good as well. The portions are RIDICULOUS and overall, everything you could want this restaurant has! I cannot stress enough how important it...

Best seafood restaurant ever. The soup, the calamari and the crab cake are delicious. If you like sweet potatoes, then you have to try their sweet potatoes fries

We were visiting from GA and wanted some really good crab cakes. It was suggested that we go to Timbuktu. I ordered a broiled crab cake and fried crab cake from the take out order side. The flavor was bland and had a doughy center in the fried one. I must say for the price we paid the food was... More
