    I saw that too. I went last summer, the place was drab and the crabs were reheated. Haven't been back.

      I go there at least once a week - it is a local neighborhood restaurant - we love it - have had some of the best crabs in the last few years there this year. We always have a good time and the owners are wonderful.

        Went there in January. Crabs weren't in season but they have them shipped in daily if you reserve them. We had the Large ( i think they have a jumbo which is larger) and the crabs were pretty damn big... and delicious!

          I usually go for lunch, so don't get into the mess of crabs. but the crabCAKES may be the best ever.

            Don't order the cream of crab soup. I was really disappointed. It was way too thick. I asked the waitress to bring me a cup of the Maryland crab instead and you would have thought I personally insulted her. She remarked that this is the way they make their crab soup and I could just add some sherry. I told her I'm a native Marylander from the area and the soup was WAY too thick to be enjoyable. I mean, I like thick soup, but not when it's so full of flour I can barely stand it! I wasn't happy and will not return.

              seeing as how there's a 50% chance she's the owner, you probably did insult her.

              It's just a little mom and pop joint folks, no trained chefs or anything. if you're coming with your James Beard game on, best to stay away.
