We had 2 XL crab cakes. There is no wonder they are so well known. It's no secret, they are absolutely hands downs the best. You won't have to look for the lumps of crab in these cakes. We met Ms. Faidly AND SHE IS A SWEET LADY. She is at the front of the line meeting and greeting. It... More

It was everything that I thought it was going to be. I saw a program on the Travel Channel with Andrew Zimmerman he was in Baltimore at the seafood place in Lexington Market so that's when I realized I needed to try this crap cake. It was the best tasting crab cake I ever had. And I had my share... More

We walked from our hotel which looking back we probably should not of as it was real sketchy. Saying that though it was worth the trip. The market is definitely in need of an over haul however everyone should see it. There is every type of food you can imagine. Faidleys I had heard so much about I needed to... More

This is a place where you eat fantastic seafood in a v ery informal ambient. In fact, you will be inside a market that sells a lot of things, but mainly seafood. The lobsters and shrimps were excellent, and their crab cakes are famous.

I was in town for a conference and decided that I needed crab cakes before it started, so off to Yelp land on my phone - Faidley's. Okay, there it is. Just 5-6 blocks north of our hotel. Easy peasy. Sure, it's not the best neighborhood, like many urban areas across America. Put your phone down, pay attention to your... More

This food stand in Lexington Market has a lot to offer--unfortunately, we did not come prepared with a large appetite. Didn't mess around and went right for the all-lump crab cake with a single deviled egg. Pathetic, I know! However... That was a damn good crab cake. Buttery, could taste all the ingredients, had big lumps of crab meat. It... More

I came here with my husband who is a huge fan of The Wire. Apparently they made a couple references to the place on the show. I'm so very glad we went. I love a good crab cake and I can honestly say this was the best yet. It is almost all crab with a little seasoning. We washed it... More

We decided to stop by Lexington market during our trip, and we see the word's best crab cake in town. I haven't had many crab cakes in my life, but enough to know what's good. This was hands down one of the best crab cake I've had. It was big, filled with big pieces of crab meat that was cooked... More

I will stop by here sometimes when I'm here in the city. Crab cakes and steamed shrimp are still delicious.
