This restaurant is the quintessential steamed crab place of Maryland. The setting is on the water, and the food is good. Go there if you are in the mood for steamed crabs, or other crab dishes. It is a fun experience!

It's hard to resist a seafood restaurant with this name, located next to the fabulous Maritime Museum and sitting over the water. We were sorely disappointed. My Maryland Crab soup had one taste and that was hot...it destroyed the flavor. My husband had the cream...More
Took the whole family here and this semi-casual restaurant has very good seafood. We really enjoyed the menu that had lots to choose from including a raw bar. All the meals were done nicely.
