“luv crab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2008

My husband & i took a mini vacation to OC after an absence of several years. (I remember the Alaska stand!) I also remember back then I found the food very overpriced & not all that good.
Crabcake factory has changed that perception for me.
I had a delectable crab cake platter, the crab was thick & loaded with meat. There was lemon to squeeze on it to enhance the flavor,there was a tasty remoularde sauce on the side & fresh slice of pineapple added to the plate, the entire presentation was very
lovely, this means alot because when a meal has "eye appeal" it usually means the chef "cares" about what the customer is getting & isnt just something slapped down in front of someone.
This was "fine dining" in a kind to my pocketbook setting, my husband opted for a steak sandwich that he found " memorably"
delicious, served with that same "eye appeal" that bespeaks a
thoughtful chef who prides himself on serving "good food".
Can t wait to make a repeat visit!!!

“Excellent Crab Cakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2008

We visited the Crab Cake Factory while staying in Ocean City the week of Sept. 16-18. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we thought we would give CCF a try. First and foremost, the food. Excellent! The crab cakes where large and very moist. They must have been broiled which kept the flavor inside. A single crab cake dinner with a side was more than enough for me. Prices were fair and reasonable, $40-$45 for two people. The only down side was the service. We had a young girl, early 20's, who seem to be more interested in talking to her co-workers than focusing on her patrons. We also noticed the "NO CELL PHONES" signs all over the dining room. Obviously a problem in the past, but it was nice to eat in relative quiet. Overall a very good experience, ( 3.5 out of 4), and would definately go back.
