Went for my birthday and couldn't wait to get a seafood platter. I know about their crab cakes (I even mail them to family across country) but was so disappointed with the broiled seafood platter. The clams casino was a tiny little shell with bread...More

Pappas has some if not thee best crab cakes. They are full of lump meat and no fillers. If you are looking for a great crab cake this is the place to go.

There were five people in our party. We stopped in around 1 on a Saturday. All of us ordered the crabcake platter. We each received a huge lump crabcake. It tasted as wonderful as it looked. We will definitely return.

I had one of their Colossal crab cakes to go. It was very filling and delicious. Their sides were kinda small and not anything to write home about.

If you are looking for authentic Baltimore-style crab cakes, in my opinion this is the place. These are not "Maryland" crab cakes, which in my experience are vastly different. Maryland crab cakes generally refer to a southern Maryland tradition of crab cake without lumps and...More
