Had lunch here on a Saturday (not sure why listed hours say closed on Friday & Saturday) and really enjoyed it. They had a much larger selection on the menu than I expected! I had the ahi tuna wrap and thought it was great....be warned it's a little spicy! My friend had the cream of crab soup and said it... More

Located conveniently on Frederick Road, but parking is not close so you may want to use the valet parking. The restaurant has many levels so if you have someone who has difficulty with stairs or in a wheelchair - make a reservation so that you get a table on the first floor. Wide variety of seafood but seems to specialize... More

Have eaten here a lot. Good food, good service, good atmosphere. Prices on higher side and could use more parking but we will keep going.

I know it's mostly known for seafood but it was there with a few friends around 2pm or so and didn't feel like eating lunch... so I had the bacon, eggs, and pancakes. The bacon was outstandingly good - crispy around the edges but not the whole way through. The rest of the food was tasty and filling. The service... More

Stopped in for lunch when visiting my son at UMBC. The crab cake was good. I would have preferred more spice or Old Bay but I like it zesty. My wife had the steamed shrimp with onions and potatoes. These were wonderful and had the spice that I wanted in my crab cake.

I have heard about this restaurant and their crabs. I could not believe the taste and amount of crab meat. I was only able to eat four crabs. I also ordered a shrimp salad sandwich and that was delicious.

Got crabs and steamed shrimp. Nice seasoning on both items. Crabs were of medium weight. Great with a cold beer.

We ordered the soft crab sandwich which had been really large the last time this time the crab was about a medium size one. Still 18 bucks. When we mentioned the difference we got," some times they are bigger than other times". Then the price should reflect it. The waitress wan't the most friendly and we had to wait to... More

We ordered 1 1/2 dozen medium crabs - nicely seasoned; one in our party thought they were a little too salty; no light ones; so the crab part of the dinner might rated between good and excellent. The other food a little hit and miss. Service was fine. I liked the lively, noisy atmosphere.

Thank epaull
