Review of Drum Point Market

This little market has the best crab cake! Made with fresh, hand-picked crab meat and very little filler and fried just right! Definitely worth the trip, or they will ship you some ready to fry at home. They are very large, but try to save room for the Smith Island cake. YumYum!

It's a little tricky to get to Tylerton, because you have to take a boat. Most visitors come on the ferry from Crisfield. We paddled down from Ewell. The town is not big and after a few minutes you will have seen it. The Drum Point Market is a general store/ snack bar/ gift shop/ post office/ meeting point, and more.

Make sure you get a crabcake sandwich and loiter around for a while talking. It'll make your trip to this unique town that much more special and memorable.

I enjoyed my visit to Drum Market. The food was cook and a good price. I got a jumbo shrimp platter. Would have paid at least double else where. I didn't try the crab cakes but one group ordered a dozen and a half. Though they were busy food came out in good time. Nice selection of vegetables and food for locals. Nice crafts and books. Had a slice of Smith Island cake.

My Wife & I came to Drum Point Market purposefully to try the Crab Cakes and we were not disappointed. These are by far the BEST crab cakes on Smith Island. Almost all crab, and some deliciousness binding the together. The taste was silky-smooth and creamy, but it was pretty much all crab meat.

If you visit Smith Island, do NOT miss the Crab Cakes at Drum Point Market. You can canoe, kayak, rent a local waterman (as we did), or take a ferry. You'll be glad you did!
