For Friday lent, crab cakes in DTW?

We all know Scotty Simpson's has the best fish & chips in Detroit. Thank you, boagman. Who has the best crab cakes?

  1. If you like Boagman's fish you'll probably like Boagman's crab cakes--

      Thx. Yep VTB. Boagman sure knows his seafood. I just wish he knew his sliders.

        Oh, but I do! Green's in Farmington Hills are still the best, DB! ;)

    2. By the way, the crabcakes at the fish counter at Nino Salvaggios are quite decent.

      1. Has anyone tried the crabcakes at Mitchells? Some of their dishes are very good, while others are so-so. The crabcakes, which I've not tried, are half price during Happy Hour from 4-7pm.

        1. It's been a while but one of the best crab cakes I've had in the area was at Union Street -- huge, moist and amazingly good.
