We met family here on our way through town. They knew the place and were happy to join us- a recommendation in itself. We arrived 5:30 and it wasn't full yet which gave us dibs on some XL crabs that had just come in. My husband and I loved it as well as our 10yo son that enjoyed the adventure... More

Being from West Texas, whole steamed crab is not something I've experienced. This is a good place to have the whole experience. We had the extra large crabs, and four apiece was a good number when combined with calamari, fried onion rings and fried shrimp. Seasoning on the crabs was pretty heavy, but they were excellent; taking them apart with... More

I took my daughter to Bo Brooks for the first time. I did some research about Maryland hotspots for soft shell crab sandwiches. I decided on Bo Brooks because of the fact that it is near the waterfront. I was not disappointed. Staff was very friendly and attentive. The vibe was great. My daughter and I enjoyed our food. I...

My family and I love all of the seafood dishes at Bo Brooks especially the delicous crab dip! We have eaten at Bo Brooks often, and love the food, the pleasant food attendants and the gorgeous view of Canton harbor with boats gleaming on the water all around us. The parking is free for 2 hours while dining, another huge... More

Visited this place with colleagues for dinner. Since I am not very fond of Crabs so ordered a Trout Fish with Wild Rice but as soon as the Crabs were dumped on our table, I couldn't resist the aroma and tried one. Oh man, I was missing out on something great. That was the best meat I have ever had.... More

Had dinner at Bo Brooks on Saturday night. Away from the touristy Baltimore in the newly redeveloped industrial waterfront area of Canton, east of Inner Harbor and Fells Point. This is a newer location for the establishment, since 2000, from more of a interior city neighborhood area. My wife went to the old location with family growing up and had... More

We were a party of 12 and most of us knew what we wanted - steamed crabs. And a lot of 'em! They were incredible, spilled out in the middle of the table in big heaps. Some of our group who were locals taught us how to clean and "pick" them. We caught on right away. The crab cakes and... More
