My husband and I recently had a super dinner at the Crackpot - I don't think there is any filling at all in the crab cakes. Just jumbo lump crab. Be careful trusting the gluten free options. On the menu, the Hushpuppies were listed as being gluten free. I was delighted because I have to follow a strict gluten free... More

We had to try the crab cakes in Maryland. Crackpot Seafood rated highly in our search.Crab cakes were good and filling but the wait staff could have done a better job of selling. We were a big group of 11 and could have used some good recommendation.

In town for business and stopped to pick an order of crab cakes to go and I was not impressed. The crab cake portions were good but not too much flavor. The side of mashed potatoes were the best part of the meal. There were a little lumpy which I like.

We were passing through the area and actually stopped at the adjoining liquor store (Crackpot Liquors) first. The place was quite crowded, but the cashiers were very fast. They were also helpful, and gave us tips for what kind of craft beer to buy for our taste. We realized there was a restaurant adjoining the liquor store and decided to... More

My wife and I were visiting our daughters in the Baltimore area and were recommended to have some lunch at a nearby restaurant called Crackpots Seafood. It turned out to be a little out of the way place with a kind of pub like atmosphere and the service was good. We both ordered the crab cakes and they turned out... More

Great menu and service, friendly atmosphere. Good local color and beer selection. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but a good meal awaits you.

Overpriced and not all that good. If you like crab plus cheese this is your place. I don't really understand how they have stayed in business for so many years. Just not worth the price, and the interior needs a good update. They do serve liquor, so there is that! But it is loud, and if you don't like crab,... More

Our party of 8 arrived right on the reservation and was greeted with a large room with maybe 3 or 4 of the 30 tables with people. The one waitress seen us at the door and yelled "that table was set up for you, honey", talking about the table to the left of the entry door. We waited about 5... More

We were two couples and a toddler and we had a Groupon to use. The place was kinda quiet as it was a cold rainy weekday. The place is a bar/restaurant, with a bar along one wall with televisions and the rest tables. We sat at a side table and got good service. As the name suggests it is seafood... More

I was in town visiting with family and was recommended this restaurant for the crab cakes. It's hard to get past the horrible start of the evening when the waitress drops an entire glass of ice tea on you and into your purse! What made it worse was the fact that she didn't apologize, walked away in no hurry to... More
