I have heard how good Faidley's huge crab cakes were and finally had time on this trip to walk up to Lexington Market to check it out. The market is a classic old-time place that is rare in this country anymore. Faidley's has tables (but...More

I never drive through Baltimore without trying to stop at the Lexington Market. Faidley Seafood is the place for US fished shrimp, crab cakes and other seafoods. Funky neighborhood but pay the $3 for the private parking lot next door and avoid the street bums...More

Horrible customer service for a placed order. I have never felt like my patronage was an inconvenience from any business before now. I was treated rudely on the phone as well. Kind of a trifecta of never using their business in the future....

My niece was in the hospital, so we went to Lexington Market for food. The crab cakes looked good, but I was disappointed. I got my food to go, but thought the crab cake would be hot. It tasted leftover and was cold. I guess...More

My husband saw this on a Food Network show so we decided to grab a quick lunch after we arrived in Baltimore. It is in the Lexington Market and I have to say many tourists will not feel safe in the area, unfortunately. The fight...More

I read some of the other reviews and decided to give it a try and I wasn't disappointed. The crab cake was excellent and used nice large chunks of crab. I enjoyed the mac and cheese as well although it was nothing to rave about....More

This ancient seafood 'stand' in the Lexington Market never changes....thank goodness. It offers the most delectable lump crab cake on earth! No frills, but none needed. If only there were seats...you'd be tempted to have more and more.

No they do not take reservations; it's not a restaurant, per se, it's a good stand w/seating. Yes, it is a 5-10 min walk to the arena.
