My family got oysters, mash, crab dip and crab cake platters. Crab cakes were HORRIBLE with a lot of filling that tasted foamy with weird tasting crab meat. The asparagus was horrible, soggy and tasted like oranges, the crab dip was runny with no flavor...More

We stopped on our last trip through BWI (as usual). Ordered crab cakes. Was disappointed with the poor quality and low lump-meat content. Service was as usual good. Prices are going up and crab quailty is going down. We'll go to G&M next time.

We ended up here because G&M was packed and we had never been but heard good things about it, so we thought we’d try it. What a contrast! We got there and there were plenty of parking spaces and the restaurant was virtually empty. We...More
