This is my favorite place for Crab Cakes!! Real lump crab with just the right amount of seasoning and not packed with fillers. I always choose their grilled vegetable of the day and the rice which both complement the crab cake. My husband and I shared oysters on the half shell and they were very fresh. They are always busy... More

Food here isn't memorable. Nothing we ordered was out of this world, but we had a Groupon, so we gave it a go. All of the staff was super nice, and willing to offer their opinion of what was good. There are plenty of options, but none that really stuck out. I would have been upset had we paid full... More

Used Groupon and came here to eat. Staff was friendly. Inside the restaurant was small so they were unable to accommodate other larger parties. We ordered the boiled seafood platter. The flavor of the food was decent, some of the portions were a bit small for what it was. The food was served hot, but lacked seasoning. I would go... More

Loved the ambiance and of course the food. Had the all-you-can-eat crabs, really great food. Fair price. So kind of the management to accept us on late notice. The place is kinda full when we went there, but it was cool.. excellent service.

Via a Groupon offering, thought we'd try this place for dinner one evening and were definitely most pleased. Easy to make a reservation, free parking directly across the street, welcoming atmosphere - all accompanied by good food and a really terrific, attentive server named Paul. He was spot-on with his recommendations and helped make our choices easy - was gracious... More

I visited Captain James Crabhouse during the winter. As you can imagine I didn’t have any problems to get a table:-) The restaurant looks outside like a ship and has a really nice interior with lots of marine decorations. During the summer, part of the restaurant is opened just next to the water with the nice view of Fells Point.... More

My wife and I are frequent visitors at this place and the the food has never disappointed. We always come with a Groupon deal. Please know that they automatically charge you 18% gratuity if your bill is over $75, which it will be since the Groupon value is $80.

I found a deal on Groupon and I'm all for putting $$ back into my community so I decided to check it out. I love it! Each time a group of us visit we are greeted promptly, the food is hot and is served in a timely manner and the atmosphere is just great. Friends and families all dinning together... More
