“Always come here for the crab cakes”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Just like everyone else, We come here for the crabcakes. We usually order extra, freeze them, and bring them home with us to Minnesota. There is nothing fancy about this place. The decor is dated and the salad bar is nothing special. But the crabcakes are the best. Huge lumps of meat with little filler. This place is family owned with food made from scratch; definitely worth a visit.

“Crabcakes”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

They will tell you that the crabmeat is not necessarily from Maryland, but who cares! They are the best and biggest crabcakes in the area. No filler, just lots of good crabmeat and spices. Their other menu items are good too, but I always order the crabcakes.

“Excellent crab cakes!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Stopped by on a recent Sunday afternoon after having read a local article on the best crab cakes in the area. Nice, down to earth atmosphere after a windblown day of sailing, no problems with shorts and tee shirts. Crab cake, at 15.95 for one (with side and salad bar) was phenominal. Large, baseball sizef cake with huge lumps of crab (indonesian I believe, too big for MD crab), had very little filler and was delicious. Only crticism was they might be using a little too much mayo, but easy to overlook that minor flaw. Bottom line, really some of the best crab cakes in the area and a great value.

“Best -- and largest -- crabcakes in the Annapolis area”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The Edgewater Restaurant's softball-sized crabcakes are worth the trip. Sure, the restaurant is non-descript. The decor harkens back to the 50's (perhaps not in a particularly good way). Salad bar is meh. But the crabcakes; just great! The platter gives you 2 softball-sized beauties that literally are too much to consume in one sitting (which makes for a great doggie bag home). Little or no filler, they are the best in the Annnapolis area, hands down.....

“Great local place.”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

I am a seafood snob and these are the best crabcakes i have found. The place doesnt look like much from the outside but very friendly people and food is great. Been there is twice so far and will go back again.
