If you are looking for the hole in the wall place with the absolute best Crab Cakes, look no further. These Crab Cakes are all meat little filler. Frankly, I am not sure how they stay together. I am thinking it is with Unicorn kisses and fairy dust. The pizza is decent, their salads need help but their main dish... More

I had dinner at Box Hill Pizzeria in March 2017 with a business associate and the service, as well as the food, was excellent. I was encouraged to try the crab cakes and so ordered mine as a combo meal with a half rack of BBQ ribs. They were both really good. I never expected to find such good ribs... More

The first several visits to eat crab cakes or take them home were beyond expectations. Large chunks of crab and hardly any filler. Delish. The last visit we got take out and when we ate the crab cakes we thought, hummmm, maybe we got a bad batch. Three chunks of crab meat in each and some stringy crab pieces through... More

Thank you for bringing these matters to our attention, Martha. We are so disappointed to hear that after so many great experiences with us, your recent visits did not impress.

My wife and I live in Baltimore and frequent several local places for crabcakes. For years we had heard all glowing reviews of Box Hill's crabcakes so we drove out to check it out. The line for the restaurant was rather long so we took this as a good sign. After a 20 minute wait we were seated. Very busy... More

Abington, Maryland --- "Box Hill Pizzeria" was recommended by a person living in Baltimore based on their crab cake ... GREAT recommendation ... my broiled 8oz crab cake, with Greek salad side & crispy garlic toast was "beyond" my expectations ... The Greek salad itself was a meal & their technique of providing a bottle of dressing for your salad... More

I think they are a great neighborhood pizza/sub shop. But the food is just OK. Staff is friendly enough but at the end of the day the food is just OK. Staff is nice. Place needs to get updated. I will try them again and see if I didn't get their best.

Who would expect a neighborhood pizzarea to have fabulous seafood. This is a regular for the locals, and that speaks volumes.

I used to live 5 minutes away and visited monthly. I moved 3 hours away, but I still schedule a stop when I visit the old neighborhood. Crab cakes are a little;e pricey, but are a good value. They have a great family menu and prices are low compared to other places in the county.

We have never been disappointed with their broiled crab cakes - worth the price!! You can get it with a garden salad or fries and slaw. Be aware the platter has two crab cakes and they are large no matter whether you choice the special (1 crab cake) or platter with (2). Enjoy. It's always one of our favorites

Restaurant is located in a small strip shopping center; we were glad we were following someone, because in the dark we might have missed it.
