    1. Annapolis Seafood on Forest Drive- there are 3 levels- all are great and the backfin ones are amazing!

      1. Grumps Cafe in the Hillsmere Shopping Center has excellent crab cakes, and for something a little different, try their crab cake quesadilla!

        I'll second the recommendation for Annapolis Seafood, very good crab cakes.

        1. I'll third the recommendation for Annapolis Seafood's crab cakes. I prefer to take home their uncooked jumbo lump backfin crab cakes, sprinkle on a bit more of my favorite seafood seasoning and pan-fry in butter. Though they still aren't as good as the crab cakes made from crabs locally caught, properly steamed, carefully picked then joyfully madeā€¦ by almost anyone who cares to do it all.

          1. I just got back from a weekend in Annapolis and had a delicious crab cake at Carroll's Creek for dinner. There were 2 perfectly cooked crab cakes, mashed potatoes, and ratatoille. It has a light drizzle around the plate of a mustard sauce. Very tasty!
