If you want the Best Crab Cake in Baltimore then you go to Koco's Pub! Lunch or dinner is always busy! I come here all the time and the Crab cake does not change.

This was a wonderful find. Huge crab cakes...great beer selection. The staff was friendly and funny. The decor is tropical for some reason. Super casual. I could not finish my food. Will return.

One of the specials of the day was a junior crab cake for $18.99 : broiled 7oz crab cake, fries and coleslaw. Sounded good - except the fries are done in peanut oil, and I'm allergic. So I asked to change the fries to a house salad, for which I'd have to pay an extra dollar. I agreed - health... More

Don't expect a fancy restaurant, but this friendly, cozy neighborhood pub serves up the best crabcakes I ever tasted (and I have had a few!). The giant crabcake (the size of a large orange) was served with fries, slaw, and a delicious dipping sauce. If you want a real Baltimore experience, this is your spot!

A small Tavern with with tightly fitted tables but they serve the BEST Crabcakes in Baltimore!!! Occasionally there is a wait but the wait is well worth your time.

Friendly neighborhood pub where everyone seems to know everyone else. As an outsider, I felt at ease. Typically I come on Thursday nights where the crab cake platter is discounted. I would recommend coming on Thursday, but IF you are hankering for a crab cake on any other day, you wont be disappointed by paying full price!

We searched for Crab Cakes & were rewarded by these gems. They are large & flavorful with little filler & tons of Crab. We also had the crab dip appetizer. Please excuse the missing portion of the food in the pictures, we could not wait to dig in.

Great crab cakes, very filling and not loaded with a lot of bread in the inside, just ALL jumbo lump crab meat. Can't wait to go back for more!!

Well it's my 10th anniversary, and my husband and I decided to go to a city he's never been to--Baltimore. So I asked one of the professors at a local university which place to go for our anniversary dinner--unhesitatingly she said Koco's! Now mind you, this is not a fancy schmancy restaurant serving A semblance of crab cake with a... More
