I'm not a seafood fanatic, but when we're in Wildwood, I make sure to stop in Crab Cake Hotline to get my crab cakes. They have the tastiest crab cakes, with just the right blend of spices and seasoning.

Crab Cakes usually are filled with bread and seasonings - Not These! Real lump crab cooked to perfection. Eat out or call ahead. Lunch great time, no lines no waiting. Vinnie was a great host and spent the time regaling the history. Will defiantly be back.

We enjoyed our crab cakes for flavor but found them to be have more bread filler than in past years. We have been enjoying Crab Cake Hotline since his first year on the island and this is the first time I was a little disappointed. There was a noticeable filler in the cakes... Still very tasty but not the same.... More

Best place to get crab cakes, fresh made daily, family run business. We drove four hours and purchased 20 took them home froze them and when we cook them a few months later they tastes just like they were just bought.
