“Now THIS is a CRAB CAKE!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Always looking for a great crab cake - and Pappas has the formula! Great in the restaurant -- and at the Carry Out Window! Have had several since my first time there in Septmember 2012.

Great local favorite - great famly community centered restaurant -- an asset to what make Baltimore a 'real' hometown hero!

Visit them in Person, at the Carry Out window and on Facebook ---

“Caveat emptor - this place is a HUGE senior magnet”

Do not go here if:
- you want good food
- you are under 90
- you can see
- you can hear
- you have taste buds
- you want good service

Go here if:
- you want a $17 crab cake baked in heavy mayonnaise
- you want to see how restaurants operated in 1950
- you like bright lights
- you like being called 'hon'
- you like having baskets of crackers and butter all over your table

“Maryland style Crab Cakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Pappas is supposed to have some of the best crab cakes in Baltimore, MD. During Restaurant Week, the noontime crowd was large and the restaurant crowded. Perhaps too many meals were ordered as the "sauce" binding the 8 oz lump crab meat together was 'soupy' and did not taste as good as claimed to be. Only after dousing with Old Bay seasoning was the flavor satisfactory. Nice sized crab cakes for a good price however. The MD crab soup was OK. Service was good.

“Best Crab Cakes in Baltimore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

2nd visit last night in two weeks. On Wed nights the crab cakes are on special for $14.99 and they can't be beat. 8oz crab cake, and 2 sides are a great deal. Service starts with refreshing cucumbers and celery in a vinegar dressing. They will give you more if you ask. Service is good, ask for Kathleen, and you will not be disappointed. Rolls could be better, not hot and a little dry. Have not tried the desserts yet, since we are always full from dinner. Can't wait for our next visit.

“Awesome Crabcakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Hubby and I stopped for lunch or actually an early dinner at Pappas for the first time. My co-workers highly recommended Pappas Crabcakes. We were not disappointed. Hubby and I both had the special Single Crabcake, soup and two side and a drink for $17.00. A great price! The food was delicious and the service was great. We will definitely look forward to going back and I would highly recommend Pappas!
