Living in Baltimore and visiting the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I've tasted quite a bit of Cream of Crab soup. Gianni's, in my opinion, has the very best Cream of Crab soup. Delicious!

Unfortunately I just walked out of this restaurant. I was in the area for a business meeting planned to start at 12:30 p.m. and arrived 45 minutes too early. Traffic was wonderful, unfortunately this establishment was not. Having walked in at 11:40 it took 10 minutes for anyone to offer me a menu or a drink. The waitress came back... More

We stopped in for lunch yesterday and found this to be a nice surprise in an unlikely location. Food was good, service was great, and will definitely stop back when we're in the area.

Great food here. The crab dip is amazing. Tortellini Ontario is so good, can't go wrong with the gnocchi. Steak sub and meatball sub are huge. Prices are fair.

Giannis is a local restaurant that started out as such a great place to go. Over time, the atmosphere got too diffrent for us to enjoy continuing to go there. They got larger, expanded space, and the 'quaint' little restaurant just turned into "another place" to go to eat. And the quality of food and service is not nearly as... More

A group of about 14 of us went to Gianni's on a Saturday night to hear the band (which were very good). We tried a lot of different things on the menu, most of which were just average. While they claim Maryland steamed crabs and seafood specialties, I would stick with the subs and burgers. The Maryland cream of crab... More

I love the location and being able to get something to eat and drink quickly.so very convenient. Eat in or carry out staff is very polite and that is important to maintain a great number of people who frequent there from time to time . we go there a lot between church services.

I went to all you can eat crabs for approximately $35. Drinks were not included. It was busy. My waitress was unpleasant and service slow. I was extremely excited when I got my first round of crabs. They were small but meaty and flavorful. It went down hill after that, with rounds of small lightweight, watery crabs. Finally we got... More
