This place is the real deal when it comes to crabs. In an area with intense competition for Maryland style crabs, Captain Leonard's easily holds its own. The crabs were fat, seasoning was spot on and the service was great.

As an (self proclaimed) expert of Maryland Cream of Crab soup...this place serves one of the best I have ever tried! Their hush puppies are tasty as well. If you are in the Southern Maryland area, this is the place to hit.

The service was good and food is always good. Crab pretzel and jumbo shrimp platter the best. Go early as the wait can get a little long especially on weekends.
