That quote is from a local when I asked where to get the area delicacy. I had been here years ago. I enjoyed it then and did so this time as well. Ordered the Crab Cake entree as an app, which I guess doesn't happen much as there was a minor fuss. The place was ultra busy for a Wednesday night. Supposed to be a 30 min wait, was only about 10. I had the Prime Rib special after sharing the Crab Cake, it was ok, same as anywhere,but didn't come with horseradish. Perhaps that's a Midwest only type of thing? My companion had some fish dish that I don't recall, but she enjoyed it very much. The sides are nothing special, but that's not why you come here. I'll be ordering the Crab Cakes on their website to enjoy back home as they were indeed the best around.

A Thursday Night about 7 PM. State 30 Minute wait turned into 45 minutes. Large noisy dining room very difficult to talk with friends across a normal table. Great Crab cakes, sides ok.

Not sure why this place is so popular. The service was just average. Ordered a chicken cordon bleu - it was ok but way too big of a portion. The sides available didn't really work with the meal, and the broccoli was soggy. Sauce on the chicken tasted like something you would make from a packet purchased at the grocery store.

Honestly, I haven't ordered anything here except the crab cakes for years. Why bother getting anything else when the crab cakes are so good? Giant softballs of flavorful lump crab with virtually no filler. Service was homey with our Baltimore "hon" waitress. Onion rings were yummy - wish more came with the order. The side salad is nothing to write home about - some pieces of iceberg lettuce, a few shreds of cabbage and carrot, but the Greek vinaigrette dressing was quite good.

Awesome, ginormous crab cakes... These crab cakes are not only huge, but they're stuffed with giant slabs crab meat, not just extra filling to fluff it up.

I was surprised that there'd be a place that offers crab cakes this good outside of Baltimore city. Lo and behold, G&M enters the picture and wows.

Other notes to consider:
* Decently priced
* Close to the airport
* Not in a relatively sketchy area (as opposed to some of the Baltimore city counterparts)
* Awesome hours (closes at 11 PM everyday)
* Carry out and sit down available
