Fisherman's Inn Crab Deck across the Bay Bridge. Good Prices, Nice Weight on the crabs and your kids will get a kick out of the ducks as they waddle thru the restaurant. Go at sunset! You will not be disappointed.

Salty Dawgs and Waterman's Pride tie hands down for the "BEST".

Bill's Terrace on Eastern Ave, in Essex, MD. It is not as clean as I would like it to be there, but they have the best jumbo crabs. I would for sure do carry out the next time. I actually don't think the health department was called yet because the crabs are sooo good.

On the roof top deck at LP Steamers looking at the city and harbor while eating deliciously spiced steamed crabs on the Point in south B-more.!.

Locally, Salty Dog carry out on North Point Boulevard IS the best. I know my crabs - my great-uncles were the owners of Obrycki's and the Corral Inn in Dundalk. And yes, they were in-laws with two very different recipes, and a great rivalry!!


Yasmine August 28, 2015 at 9:00 am

I must agree with NIcole it is a tough call since there are so many good place . But if I am press to chose I must say Blake's on Edison Hwy and Seaside


Tamara August 28, 2015 at 8:45 am

I would have to agree with Nicole it hard press to choice just one place since there are so many. but if I must chose Blake's on Edidison and Seaside.

As a native Marylander, this is a tough question to answer because there are several great options in the area. My top 2 crab restaurants are Seaside and Mike's crab house.
