I don't like crab. But apparently this place did the crabs justice. I'm sure that if they knew their demise- they would prefer to be tasty and to come here to be enjoyed.

The rest of the family devoured the crabs. Snow crabs, blue crabs. They didn't care for the Old Bay, and asked for a bowl of water to scrub it off. Some like old bay, some don't. See if you can get crabs without if possible.

The clam chowder was very good. We would definitely return.

This place will always be a favorite of mine! in the early 90's I was was sitting on the hood of my uncles car waiting for order to be done, When a customer leaving is approached by a guy who's mad because he was looking at his girlfriend, A scuffle happens and the poor guy was pushed breaking the front window of the place.

Looking for meaty crabs and I wasn't disappointed . I usually eat 1 dozen crabs in Florida but I only ate six at Al's because they were so meaty and good! The prices were average. I would go back.

Went to Baltimore the end of March and was recommended Al's Seafood restaurant for veriidy of food. Some in the group did not like seafood, others wanted to experience the steamed crabs you go to Maryland for. The food was good, service was good. All in all good food, good time.
