I went here with cousins from Europe I hadn't seen in 50 years. They ordered broiled crabcakes. I ordered the fried crabcake. The waitress said I should order it broiled. I said no, I would like mine fried, if they can do it fried. She said when they fry it, they cover it with bread crumbs. I said that's ok,... More

They are currently remodeling the first floor, but the upstairs is open. Had the crab cake and husband had the surf n turf. Both were excellent. Fresh green beans were good but could have used some seasoning. Staff very friendly. Service excellent. Good parking.

We have been to Pappas more times then I would venture to count. They are always consistant. The crab cakes are huge, and the service is always great.

Like most of the reviews point out, very good crab cakes. I will admit, however, that I have had better. Their calamari was very good as well. I sat in the sports bar area, which is a very rustic sports bar, but I was there for the food, not the ambiance. Pricing was reasonable and service was good.

My cousin took us to Pappas and we will never forget this meal. I have never understood why people prefer Maryland Blue Crab over say Dungeness until I ate at Pappas. I have never had a better crab cake than the one I ate there. With no filler and just big pieces of crab pressed together I have found the... More

They start with a relish tray of pickled cucumbers and celery, homebaked rolls and then these delicious crab concoctions with huge lumps of crabmeat!

It was recommended by a relative and we cannot thank him enough. I love crab cakes but usually had them from minced crab meat. Pappas cakes are lumps of crab meat cooked to perfection. The cream of crab soup was creamy but not overpowering in flavor. Service was excellent. Restaurant is clean but let me warn you, the smell of... More
