Had lunch with some colleagues at lunch time. One of our party had lived in Baltimore and indicated that Pappas had the best crab cakes in Baltimore. Not having eaten at all restaurants in Baltimore that serve crab cakes I wont make that claim. But I will say, they are the BEST CRAB CAKES I have eaten in a restaurant... More

First, the staff, and I mean all staff is amazing. They go out of there way to make your evening incredible. Secomd, crab cakes are one of the best in Maryland. Restaurant is clean, all tabl3s are white cloth covered and linen napkins. If your lucky get a seat by the fireplace.

Several friends have recommended this restaurant to me and during holiday break my family and I decided to try it. I'm so glad we did! The deecor reminded me of every Baltiimore restaurant I'd visited as a child. White table cloths, fireplace, a bit dark and decorated for the holidays. We started with the shrimp and garlic appetizer, three of... More

Had a terrific dinner. Crab cakes are better than advertised. Gigantic size with hugh lumps. Properly seasoned with no filler evident. The vegetables are properly prepared. The asparagus was served cooked correctly still firm but able to be cut easily. If you aren't up for the dining room there is a friendly bar attached that serves great food and drinks... More

I had made a reservation through open table and I was glad that I did. They appeared to be quite busy. The Maryland Crab Soup is delicious. The crab cake is very good , too. At times, I think the waitress forgot about us and we often had to ask another member of the wait staff for assistance. Overall, I... More

Ate here recently with some friends. It was packed. Parking lot was almost full but is convenient. Restaurant didn't do a good job of honoring our reservation (but fortunately there was a table available). Interior was noisy. Drinks were pretty good. Crabcakes were quite good, as was other seafood that I tried. Salads weren't too bad. Overall, a solid, no-frills... More

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.

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.
