Food is usually good but store is dirty. Help goes from one thing to another without ever washing their hands. Scale platform not wiped clean, same with counter top. Help needs to be instructed about keeping it clean. Wiping hands on your shirt or pants is not making them clean.

The best ever shrimp salad and crab cake ANYWHERE!!! Absolutely the best. Little Lou, the owner, is very accommodating. His staff need to be more polite....but food is worth it.

I called Little Lou's on Saturday August 1st to order crabs for a birthday party on Sunday August 2nd. The girl who answered the phone was very rude and acted like I was bothering her. Attitude through the whole conversation, but I let that slide since I have had crabs from here before and have even recommended them to other... More

We took a road trip just to try Lou's. Enjoyed the country ride and the food at Little Lou's. Long way to travel for a sub , the only disappointment was the service. Not friendly at all. The seafood looked good, but we did not order any seafood. Our order was the everyday special , 2 subs, 2 fries, 2... More

Wife and I have heard good things about their crabs, so we went there for our first crabs of the year. We ordered a dozen of their biggest/best crabs. What we got didn't impress, about five were actually full, the rest, not so. I just expected better. Maybe if they had thrown in an extra crab or so. But no.... More

as a life-long baltimorean, i've tried countless carry-out crab places. a friend of mine turned me on to this place for steamed crabs, and although it's not exactly convenient to where i reside, this is now the place where i get my carry-out crabs. well seasoned, reasonably priced and always fresh. but it is strictly a carry-out joint.

Mr. Lou's is the man with the best fresh crabbs around the Rosedale area. The devilled eggs are phenomenal!! Everything is freshly made in house. Great carry out or delivery!
