I was planning on heading to Cantlers this weekend with the my family in town but it will be too cold to sit outside. I dont praticularly like the indoor seating there. Can anyone recommend some other crab house near Annapolis that might have a nicer seating indoors--a view is a plus. Maybe Cheshire crab?

    I have always been a fan of Mikes crabhouse (http://www.mikescrabhouse.com/). I worked there in college and their crabs were always good. Its a good place for b list celebs as well (Pat Sajak eats there sometimes). The inside isn't swank, but good for eating crabs and its on the water.
    Enjoy!

      The one time I ate there I was wasn't too impressed with the crabs or the view, or the wait for a table for that matter!

      Yes, go to Harris Crab House, but it's about 10-15 miles outside of downtown Annapolis.

        Cheshire Crab is now this:

        Since it's cold out I wouldn't suggest the Magothy Tiki bar and crab deck, not sure they are open for the season anyway.
        Go to Harris's on Kent Narrows, great views, I like the indoors there better then Cantlers.
