D & J food takes second place to Rube's Crab Shack, also in Emmitsburg . Some may prefer the layout of D & J, which now has outdoor seating on a deck . Popular place with motorcycle weekend riders .

There were seven of us who were trying D&J's for the first time. I ordered the Porterhouse (medium rare) & Snow Crab. I got a T-Bone well. And it was barely warm. I had 3 bites and donated it to a friend's dog. The crab wasn't freshly cooked, either. Only 1 in 7 liked their meal. The blue crab was... More

This restaurant is kind of a hole in the wall type restaurant. I had the crab cakes and my co worker had the all you can eat platter and we both went away full. The crab cakes are very tasty.

A large group of us (18 Total) came here one night after class. Food was excellent, but they were extremely understaffed. One waitress was serving our table as well as several others. I got the all you can eat seafood and it was amazing. Crab Legs, Full Crabs and Shrimp, served with hush puppies.

We just moved to the area and wanted to stop in and eat, the waitress came over and pointed at a table and said you can sit there, we waited 15 minuted to be waited, too long! As the place was not packed, The waitresses were more inclined to talk amongst themselves then to wait on people. To us the... More

My wife and I went here for dinner with friends. We were seated promptly and the waitress was quick with our drinks. The meal came in a timely fashion and was good. I had the crab cakes.

This could be the only crab house in town but it's worth it. It's in the middle of a huge farm and we loved it because while eating we get to see the trees and farm nearby. So we picked outside seating to get the views. The greens make your vision sharper. When we googled crab house this pops up... More

This place is no joke. They offer an all you can eat special which includes Alaska crab legs, blue crabs, hush puppies, shrimp, and fried chicken. Also, you get to chose a cup of soup and a salad. Highly recommend

All you can eat crabs for $40 per person. We didn't get that, but had some steaks and various shrimp. The steaks were delicious and the steamed shrimp appetizer was delicious. Our server wasn't the most attentive and it was ridiculously hot in the restaurant. As we were leaving, the fans were turned on which seemed to help, but it... More
