i try to eat at costas whenever i visit baltimore. on a recent trip the restaurant was surprisingly empty on a thursday evening - maybe 2 dozen people were there. usually it is a lively and fun baltimore crab house. perhaps we ate too early.
my daughter accompanied me. she enjoyed the cream of crab soup which is too pasty for me. she also had the lasagna which she said was good. i had a good caesar salad and had pre-ordered my crabs. they were large and very good. we were too full for dessert.
service was good. the 2 bus boys were especially attentive. a man greeted people at several tables. he did not acknowledge us or the table next to us, although he walked past us several times. not a look, not a smile, not a hello, not even a nod. We did feel dissed. but we like costas so much that we will return on a future trip. it usually is a terrific experience.
