Ordered food for take out. Spent $70.00 on 2 crab cake platters. Got home, opened box, they got the order wrong, crab cakes were disgustingly salty, baked potatoe was dry and old. Very disappointed. Wife called several times, manager wasn't available. Finally manager called back and was unhelpful. He said there was nothing he could do. What a horrible place!

Crab cakes are Best In Town. And the hospitality is Amazing. Great guys taking care of everything. Only draw back is that it is small. Not a place for a big group. Everything was perfect from the homemade croutons on the salad to the crab martinis.

We went to this place based on the reviews but we were very unhappy. It took 15 before we were even greeted and then it took another half hour for the girl to take our order. Then it took nearly about 45 minutes to get our food. They were unfriendly. There are too many other choices to waste your time... More

Still unable to figure out the homemade mix which made up what has to be the best Bloody Mary. A big selection of condiments/hot sauces on the bar. Sounds weird to refer to a Mary as refreshing but it was wonderfully cold, light but with fresh horseradish, great taste from top to bottom and beautiful garnishes. Also, you must have... More

We were told that we had to have the crab cakes while visiting Baltimore. We were so fortunate to come across Duda's while strolling around Fell's Point. Tuesday night was even the crab cake special. Wow - they were amazing! Packed with crab and the size of a baseball. Great cold beer to go along, too!

I'd heard about this place. Small street-corner pub in what was the Union Hotel and ship pilots association HQ in the 19th century. Great crab cake, steamed shrimp appetizer, chicken and dumpling soup. Bargain: $5 Happy Hour appetizers. Across from Bond Street Warehouse, meaning it is close to Harbor East hotels. Or, two blocks from Fells Point Water Taxi stop.... More

Beers: A wide variety of unique beers on tap. Appetizer: Crab Martini (market price). A generous potion of crab sitting on top of lettuce, generously sprinkled with Old Bay, in a martini glass. Adding the butter as a dip makes a great compliment to the crab. Entree: Crab Cake ($14) and about the size of a tennis ball. Great mixture... More

Visiting Fels Point after getting off the water taxi was a great treat. Duda's has excellent crab cakes, salmon burgers and spiced steamed shrimp along with a good selection of beers and a full bar. There was a coups in the Baltimore Water Taxi guide for Duda's and it was recommended by the water taxi driver.

Low key. Get away from the business aspects of a trip. Friendly, efficient staff. Not fancy but GOOD

Yes, the crab cakes are the best I have had in the area. However, with them you get Lays potato chips and a small cup of prefab potato salad, as if absolutely no thought was put into it. The bar has an OK selection of drafts. The decor is definitely local dive. I sat at the bar, but got very... More
