“completely amazing crabs.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Incredible crabs! The all-you-can-eat crabs and fries deal had all six of us stuffed to the gills and with Old Bay all over our hands. Not for the faint-hearted. Just an incredible night out-- I still have dreams of this crab!

“Dozen Hardshells!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Was a treat to find excellent hard shell crabs so close to downtown Arlington. Had a dozen large for ~ $70 which was a bit steep but was out of season. Not quite Cantlers down in Annapolis but still excellent. Good clam chowder to start and plenty of beer on tap. Call ahead to reserve your crabs.

“Quarterdeck still going strong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The crabs are still great, and they are now available even after the Bay's season is over. The Quarterdeck has improved its menu, but still has old favorites -- like hot dogs. Go figure! Tavern atmosphere still rules in the bar. Hooray!

“Dinner and a Beer”

If you think of a sea food restaurant on the water, this would be it except its no where near the water. Great crab cakes. I will go back.

“Dive Bar and Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Upon arriving into DC/VA, my hotel recommended this place since its right up the street from where we stayed. The service food and drinks were delightful. The crab dip is delicious! And they have shocktop and magic hat on tap...I think so!!
