I ordered the crab feast, which include all you can eat crab. In addition I ordered crab cake and it was fantastic. The food is fresh and the crabs are prepared and spiced well. Even through the restaurant is small, it is excellent and service is fast. We sat on a picnic like table on the beach sand, suitable for beach vacation. If you like to eat crab, I highly recommend.

We always like to come here for the softshell crab sandwiches. It's easy to get to, and very casual.

Got your attention huh! The O.C. area is flooded with folks from the north these days. When I am in NY, I get into the swing of how you do things (fast paced, in your face etc.). Ocean City is the complete opposite, old school, slower paced, and basically a mindset. This Crab House really is worth your stop and very Eastern Shore in attitude. The crabs are really done well, fresh and super hot when they hit your table.The place only has outside seating! You wait because it is busy all the time with limited seating. It is a wonderful roadside dive in my book.

Great steamed crabs, incredible steamed shrimp, corn on the cob that rocks and other seafood for your enjoyment is available.

Get into the vibe of this place, order a pitcher of beer, and grab your mallet and knife. This place is a treat even for someone from Baltimore that knows where to get great crabs.

I enjoy seafood, but my favorite are fried butterfly shrimp! They have the best. When I want heavy crabs I go there first. I do not enjoy eating small crabs with even less meat. I visit here solo or with family & friends! The sand floor is an added treat! The kids can play and your toes welcome the warm of the sand as being on the beach!! Being outside in the shade eating great shrimp, crabs & corn on the cob with a cold tap beer is a great meal!! Go before the dinner crowd because parking is free and it fills up fast!

Great Food! Crab cakes and peel and eat shrimp were great! Just what we wanted! We loved the casual outdoor dining! We will be back!
