Crab Cakes near Interstate 95?

Could anyone suggest where to get good crab cakes, for lunch, nearby to Interstate 95? Will be passing through on the way to Georgia to visit our son. Thanks

      Though it is a few more miles, go to Jerry's Seafood in Bowie. The location is much larger than the original in Lanham, meaning plenty of space to wait inside and plenty of parking. Open 11:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. Mon-Sat, Sunday noon-8. Food is every bit as great.

    2. Jerry's Seafood in Lanham, MD males a firecracker crab bomb that is outrageous. Also very expensive, despite the diner ambience. They also have a crabcake version, which is still pricey but a Maryland original. Be careful about unusual hours of operation! Best to call first.

      1. Faidley's in Lexington Market. It's a slight detour into the city but completely worth it. The only hitch is they tend to run out later in the day.

        1. This past weekend I had a very good crabcake at Pappas Restaurant in northeast Baltimore. Would not be too far out of your way and worth the few minutes travel time. Very reasonable -- $15.99 for one crabcake and two sides, $24.99 for two, or $33.99 for three (and you get your picture on the wall of fame).

          These are seven-ounce crabcakes, nice big lumps of meat, virtually no filler -- just barely enough binder to keep them from falling apart. Very popular with Baltimoreans.

          1. about 1 1/2 miles from 95, north of baltimore is box hill pizzeria in abingdon, md. very good crabcakes in a no-frills strip mall location.
