I originally gave this place a great review but then my spouse started getting treated badly there for no reason. The woman behind the counter ignored her until every other customer had left despite her being there before most of them. We don't know this woman, never seen her before yet she acting very rude. It's a shame because they... More

Ordered a bushel crabs for out of town family and the thoroughly enjoyed them. Crabs varied in size and we're perfectly seasoned. Looking forward to going again this summer.

Crab Galley sets the standard for steamed crabs. Fresh fish selection is very good as well. Prepared to go dinners are always well prepared and the portions are generous. I often order the steamed shrimp party platter which is always a crowd favorite. When I order crabs I alway get a few extra thrown in. The owners are great folks.... More

The people here are always helpful. Things are fresh. The crab dip to take home and warm is cheesey-yum. Great steamed crabs! It is a take-out restaurant.

This is our spot for crab cakes in the area. We always order the jumbo lump crab cakes, plan to use them for fresh seafood orders (crab legs, shrimp, etc) next time I need some. Their staff is always super courteous and they remembered me when I came back each time. Check them out for your seafood fix! Definitely recommend.

Been buying our steamed crabs from Crab Galley for years. Friendly staff and their hush puppies and shrimp salad are both excellent. Great menu. Always get our steamed shrimp for Christmas eve from them.

I have had many different items, including crabs, crab cakes, crab dip, shrimp and shrimp salad and all were excellent. I would recommend this to anyone. They get very busy and have a small lobby so I would suggest calling in your order in advance

I used to love this place for the shrimp salad and the fried clam strips. Last time I visited the clams were badly burned and still they served them to me. It was impossible to even bite into them. I called and they offed a free serving next time I came it. I was so angry that decided to just... More

Approximately two weeks ago, enjoyed a 1/2 dozen; went back this Sat got a dozen. They were decent but not as good as two weeks ago; merely because a few was mushy. I believe my next visit in two weeks, will not be crabs, but coconut shrimp. I will pray the shrimp is fried with big flakes and sweetness of... More

You wouldn't know from the outside of this tiny seafood joint (located right next to a laundromat) how great it is. Serving some of the best seafood in all of Maryland, the crab shack should be on your bucket list. Be sure to try the steamed shrimp, which are some of the best in town.
