We stopped in for dinner on our way through Maryland and had a wonderful experience. The server was well trained, the crab cake platter and the full rack of rips were delicious, and the overall atmosphere was enjoyable. We definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone stopping through the small town of Cumberland, Maryland to enjoy a great meal.

I went a number of times to this restaurant which opened at least 10 years ago. The food is not that good. I once went with a party of 14 people, with a check of over $400 which I was paying myself, but the manager would not accept more than one of the $5 off a $20 check coupons that... More

Food was just okay. Cream of crab was bland, crab cake wasn't that great and and apple sauce straight from a jar.

Was sort of quiet in Cumberland. The town was almost deserted which is a shame because it is a nice area. Had a meal in the Crabby Pig. Service was decent and the food was ok . Hate to say it but the town seems to be dieing. Checked in on a better class (from appearances) before deciding where to... More

The best and only place in Cumberland, MD that I'm aware of that serves Maryland Blue Crabs in season. We have eaten here dozens of times thruout the years as far back as when the place was called Crab Alley. Thru the years the place changed owners and then the name to include both their signature dishes. The smoked ribs... More

As others have noted, great location! Right there at the Bike Trail and C & O Canal. Friendly staff, cold beer and great burgers. Afterwards, go next door and rent bikes to pedal on the passage and/or canal. Right near the Fairfield Inn.

If you're riding the C&O Towpath and/or Great Allegheny Passage, it might be worth your time to stop in here for a beer and some BBQ. It's a nice and inexpensive place to fuel up without having to venture far into town.

We were in Cumberland to ride the C & O bike trail. We visited Crabby Pigs as it is located next to the trail. We were not disappointed. I had and excellent Crab Cake sandwich and my wife had ribs.
