Via a Groupon offering, thought we'd try this place for dinner one evening and were definitely most pleased. Easy to make a reservation, free parking directly across the street, welcoming atmosphere - all accompanied by good food and a really terrific, attentive server named Paul. He was spot-on with his recommendations and helped make our choices easy - was gracious... More

I visited Captain James Crabhouse during the winter. As you can imagine I didn’t have any problems to get a table:-) The restaurant looks outside like a ship and has a really nice interior with lots of marine decorations. During the summer, part of the restaurant is opened just next to the water with the nice view of Fells Point.... More

My wife and I are frequent visitors at this place and the the food has never disappointed. We always come with a Groupon deal. Please know that they automatically charge you 18% gratuity if your bill is over $75, which it will be since the Groupon value is $80.

I found a deal on Groupon and I'm all for putting $$ back into my community so I decided to check it out. I love it! Each time a group of us visit we are greeted promptly, the food is hot and is served in a timely manner and the atmosphere is just great. Friends and families all dinning together... More

This is a restaurant that has enjoyed better days. The service was very slow. We waited 30 minutes on a slow Wednesday night to be seated. After being seated it took an hour for our food to served. The food was bad. The soft soft crab was breaded in cheap, heavy breading that left an aftertaste. The key is not... More

This restaurant was great! Our Wait Greg was amazing, everything he recommended was delicious. The seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. The sweet and salty oyster’s appetizer was amazing. Overall this restaurant is definitely worth trying.

This place is AMAZING! The food is so good and the service is great. I had the broiled seafood platter. It was worth every dollar and more! It is a quaint place, but I would definitely come back if I am in BALTIMORE. The only complaint I have was that the musical was too loud.

My and I visited this location looking for good seafood, and they didn't disappoint us. As an added bonus, we were able to use a Groupon (which cut our bill in half). We had reservations for 4, but the other half of our party couldn't make it... so we had to reduce our reservation to 2 in order to be... More

Dinner reservations were made for 7 people at 5 PM on a Friday. The host would not seat the party until all people were there. Once seated, the waitress took our drink orders and it took over 30 minutes, for our drinks to be brought to the table. Twenty minutes after the drinks were brought to the table, the waitress...

Second visit (12/19/16). The charm of the place is special. The building is shaped like a ship. There is a separate waterfront crab deck , but that was closed. The food was great and the service was excellent. The steak was a little tough, but not so much to complain about. The crab cake (and the crab stuffed potato skins)... More
