We are always searching for a cut above in seafood in general, & in crab cakes especially, when in the Wildwood/Cape May area. In keeping with that goal, we count the days till we can return to Wildwood (staying always at the Candlelight Inn B&B) and rush down the block to this small (unassuming little) establishment, called 1-800-Crab Cake Hotline, that serves the best (out of this world) broiled crab cakes of any place around. We tried many other places in the Wildwood, Cape May, Rio Grand, area to compare, and in the end, none were as good (only one place-the Crab Shack on Park Ave, even came somewhat close) but when all was said and done, Crab Cake Hotline was without equal.
To be the absolute best at a particular food item, is great, but for added icing on the cake, they also produced for us, fantastic additional items: Crab Chowder soup, Caesar Salad with lump crab meat, crab stuffed Fresh Flounder, Baked potatoes with sea salt, Stuffed Shrimp, etc.
The ribs were great as well, however, one really picks-up at this Wildwood gem, for the crab cakes, stuffed with tons of sweet lump crab meat and almost no filler holding the cake togther at all. It is like magic! Truly the Best.

Whenever we get to Wildwood, this is our first stop on our agenda. BEST crab cakes to be had anywhere around the shore area. Heavy on the lumb crab meat, easy on the fillers and seasoned just perfectly. I love the side of cole slaw and huge baked potato to go. It's also nice to call ahead and have your order ready and waiting for you. But if wait you must, there is the free popcorn and friendly "porch people" to pass the time.

This place used to have the best crabcakes I have ever had. Sadly, they are now more filler than crab and they are not using the good quality lumb crab anymore. I truly looked forward to getting their cakes for months, but will not return. It's shocking the change in quality and for the price they definitely aren't worth it anymore. Shame on them. What a major disappointment...

Crabcake Hotline opened its doors today and I was so fortunate to have these delicious crabcakes. They have to be the best crabcakes I have
ever tasted!
