We go here every time we visit Ocean City as we find them to have the best crab cakes. They are full of crab meat and not fillers. Their service could be better.

We arrived about 7pm at the restaurant. My husband was concerned about it not being fancy enough. The inside looks just like a crab House wood table and steel chairs with vinyl cushions. We ordered steamed clams, Maryland crab soup and we both ordered crab...More

We have gone there plenty of times before, always for carryout. This was most likely our last. I placed my order and give the waitress my money. The management/owners do not trust the staff with the money. She put my money on the register, while...More
