This is our favorite place in Baltimore. We eat here at least once a week. Food is excellent. In addition to best crab cakes, their salmon is the best. People - staff and customers - are great. Do not miss it

Popped in for lunch and had the crabcake sandwich with the "junior" size crabcake. Have had Pappas, Corner Stable, and other reputed "Best in Baltimore" crabcakes, but this is by far the absolute best.
