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.

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.

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!!

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.
