As usual the crab cakes were amazing. Arrived at BWI and this is the first place I went to. Ordered the crab cakes in route so they would be ready upon my arrival.

Just opened about a month ago. HUGE menu...seafood but so much more. It has a large bar area, plus a separate dining room. The atmosphere is nice, service kinks are being worked out, and the food is fantastic. The crab cakes give most a run for their money in this area of crab cake experts.
