I always get the 8 oz crab cake and fries to go. They are always fantastic. A large portion which is all crab meat. No extra filling or extra flavoring, all crab. So, amazing. However, after years of picking up outstanding crab cakes, my friends and I actually got a table for the first time. It was a very disappointing... More

Great restaurant. Especially the seafood. I had Orange Roughy stuffed with Crap Imperial and steamed lima beans. My wife had crab cakes which were awesome as well. We had a sampler for an appetizer. Well worth the visit. The place was packed and reservations are are a good idea.

Being from Baltimore I am a crab cake snob. Don't miss the opportunity to have one of the best ever! I always get two whenever I am in town. Oprah knows her crab cakes too, and agrees with me!

We went to Pappas recently to celebrate a birthday. We had several older folks, a few kids and some family. The reason this restaurant was picked was for the crab cakes which is great as long as you are not allergic or a vegetarian. Being both of those things I perused the menu for things that were non-seafood and ideally... More

Go for the crab cake. Can't be beat. Can't say I've tried anything else on the menu. Service is always good.

Not having eaten at all restaurants in Baltimore that serve crab cakes I wont make that claim. But I will say, they are the BEST CRAB CAKES I have eaten in a restaurant... More
