There will be a wait in this small establishment, but well worth the wait for the best crab cake you can get. I've tried crab cakes all over the area and many are very good. However, Koco's pub is the best. The crab cake is...More

Popped in for lunch and had the crabcake sandwich with the "junior" size crabcake. Have had Pappas, Corner Stable, and other reputed "Best in Baltimore" crabcakes, but this is by far the absolute best.

Was in Baltimore for business and had been told to go here. I wasn't disappointed. The place fills up fast, even for lunch, so get there on time! Crab cakes were great, service with a smile. They even ship. We'll be back!

On a short weekend trip back home I decided to visit Koco's for their famed crab cakes, and they did not let me down. It was full of Jumbo lump meat seasoned and broiled to perfection.....The taste of home brings back so many memories.
