Went for my birthday and couldn't wait to get a seafood platter. I know about their crab cakes (I even mail them to family across country) but was so disappointed with the broiled seafood platter. The clams casino was a tiny little shell with bread crumbs on top - no flavor. The fish, scallops and shrimp were all white with... More

Pappas has some if not thee best crab cakes. They are full of lump meat and no fillers. If you are looking for a great crab cake this is the place to go.

The service is superb and the food is excellent. Crab meat not a lot of fillers. Baked potatoe hot and fresh. The crab soup was everything. The waiter met every need. We didn't wait long for table and food came out quick. I would highly recommend this place to eat dinner/lunch.

well celebrating Mother's Day at Papas was not a good idea....we had the crabcakes and they were good, however; the vegetables and they only hade one, green beans, they were so bland..they come right out of the pot, no seasoning no nothing! Then they are so skimpy on their servings of jack knife potatoes, I think I had maybe 3... More

Heard a lot about the crab cakes and had to experience. The building is older and a bit dated. Not much to look at. Was quickly seated on a Saturday - late afternoon. A lot of food to choose from but The double crab cakes called. When they arrived they did not disappoint. These were real Baltimore Crab cakes. Huge!... More

Reservations, reservations, reservations! Did I say "reservations"? My most recent visit to Pappas's was at the Baltimore location in Parkville. There's another location in Cockeysville. This visit was with three friends. We made easy work for our pleasant waitress by ordering the exact same dinner -- a broiled crab cake with baked potato and green beans. Large lumps of crab...

There were five people in our party. We stopped in around 1 on a Saturday. All of us ordered the crabcake platter. We each received a huge lump crabcake. It tasted as wonderful as it looked. We will definitely return.

I had one of their Colossal crab cakes to go. It was very filling and delicious. Their sides were kinda small and not anything to write home about.

If you are looking for authentic Baltimore-style crab cakes, in my opinion this is the place. These are not "Maryland" crab cakes, which in my experience are vastly different. Maryland crab cakes generally refer to a southern Maryland tradition of crab cake without lumps and with other spices like onion. The crab cakes at Pappas are backfin meat cakes, with... More

I always get the 8 oz crab cake and fries to go. They are always fantastic. A large portion which is all crab meat. No extra filling or extra flavoring, all crab. So, amazing.
