The combo platter of snow crab and scallops was delicious. The scallops were nice and big and my meal was cooked perfectly. My husband's dinner however was a disaster. The flounder was rubbery and overbooked so they lost a star for that. The waitress was super sweet and took it off with no questions asked. He indicated the oysters however... More

Stopped in for happy hour. They had a great selection with very very good prices on drinks and on happy hour food. Steamed claims were $5 a dozen . The best price we found in Ocean City. Our group also had the steamed, mussels, and fish tacos . Every one was excellent . Service by the bartenders was very good.

Great place to eat crabs, their crabs are heavy/full. We usually order a dozen extra large or jumbo and get a few more free.

My husband ordered the all you can eat crabs, and I have never seen him so excited over a dinner in 20 years! He really enjoyed it! The fish tacos were good as well, bot not nearly as exciting. My seven year old and I enjoyed dessert and drawing on the brown paper tablecloth while Daddy continued to enjoy his... More

The food was awesome and we had great service. The crabs were wonderful. Crab Alley is a little out of the way but it's worth it. A visit to the Harborside after dinner makes it even better.

We are visiting from New Jersey and decided to try this place over Captain Galleys. What a disappointment! The crab bruschetta was bland and just horrible! I didn't even finish it. My food took FOREVER to come out. We only ordered crab legs and flounder! And no the restaurant was not crowded. The crab legs taste like nothing, yuck no... More

Crab Alley is one of the restaurants we always visit when in Ocean City, MD. My wife and I shared one of the king crab combination platters for two. There was plenty of food and the crabs were delicious. Their Maryland crab soup is also very good. We like to sit upstairs since there is a great view of the... More

This was the second time i have visited this place. Our visit started out really well. I got the all you can eat Blue Crabs while the rest of our group (10) got other things. Everybody enjoyed their food and there is something wonderful about a pile of steaming crabs being dumped on brown paper. Unfortunately after a certain amount... More

Shared the crab feast for two with a friend. It was delicious. A ton of food. The shrimp were awesome and a great size. Crabs were good. Had a half dozen oysters too. Tasted great. Try the watermelon sangria. Service was good, too. Definitely sit outside if the weather allows it.
