    ^just kidding.

    Fells Point is where you want to head. Though near Harbor you can find a comedy club and touristy bars if you are into that kind of thing.

    Somebody mentioned Phillips upstread, I believe they are closed, they are moving to the old ESPN Zone nearby and aren't open yet (I believe, could be wrong on if they are open yet).

    If you rent a car G&Ms is a good place for crab cakes. As Fanatic says, crab cakes around here are plentiful year round. And they are real crab cakes, not that crap they pass off in other areas that are barely thicker than an envelope and less tasty.
    The new Phillips has been open almost 2 months now.

    Do yourself a favor ang get a crabcake from G&M and for another meal get one from Kokos Pub. I've tried crabcakes allover the Baltimore area, you name it, I've had it. Take my word for it, Kokos Pub reigns supreme.

    I like Michaels for crabcakes. It's on Eastern Avenue near Dundalk Avenue.

    You all are going to send this poor lad to the burbs when there are equal / better crab cakes within walking distance of the harbor?

    Shame on y'all.

    Burbs, schmurbs .... the best crabcakes are still on the Eastern Shore. Just cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, then go to Kent Narrows or St. Michaels

    Disagree, the best crab cakes are found here.

    Go to the Glen Burnie local since its a sports themed place instead of the Taylor Ave location that's more formal.

    No way!!

    I just ate there (Taylor Ave.) a few weeks ago.
    While certainly tasty, nowhere near the size and quality of G&M's.

    Quite frankly, it's pretty damn hard to find a crabcake that is made in the balto. metro area that doesn't taste good.

    With that being said, it's the size and amount of filler that separates them IMO.

    Been awhile since I was down at G&M's, but everytime I've been there they were the real deal!!

    You'll be shocked. The old place was gutted. G&M had a multi-million dollar makeover. I was there last week: same old monster 8 oz crabcake with quality meat, but still fairly bland for my tastes. I prefer more traditional Maryland crabcake recipes -- smaller, browner coating, spicier. That's why I go to Eastern Shore. It's hard to find traditional Maryland crabcakes in a good restaurant Annapolis or even Baltimore anymore. There are a few spots locally, but my wife won't get out of the car to go inside.

    I recently as scanning old family stuff and came across the menu at my Dad's restaurant in the 1960's. Hamburger was 35 cents, and crabcake was 25 cents. How times have changed!

    Re: A few questions from a Texan

    Phillips in Harbor Place has always had a
    great seafood platter with crab cake, shrimp,
    fish, oysters, claims and crab imperil.

    It was about $30. GMs is big but had too
    much stuffing for me. I pulled out a half
    slice of bread the last time I was there.

    Box Hill Pizzeria and Tamberino's in Bel Air
    have the best crab cakes for my tastes
    but they're way out in the sticks from
    downtown.

    You gotta try Phillips in the Harbor if they're
    open and just a short walk. Visit the
    Acquarian too.

    Re: A few questions from a Texan

    Coming from Texas I know you're into beef,
    so if you're here a couple of days drive out
    to the Corner Stable on York Rd in Towson
    for best spare ribs and crab cake platter you'll ever
    taste. None of those baby back ribs either. They're huge.

    Good shrimp too for appetizer.


    Here's a map, only about 25 mins from
    down town in non-rush hour traffic. Take Rt 83 straight out from
    down town.

    I agree. i worked there at one time and they use a lot of filler in the Crab Cakes and they are very dirty in the back of house. I wont eat there.

    Re: A few questions from a Texan

    I'm in the mood for a good crab cake platter... Perhaps I'll give G&M a try since driving way down to the Eastern Shore is about as likely as Vonta Leach winning the rushing title next season.

    UNLEASH THE BEASTS!!!!




  15. Re: A few questions from a Texan

    Believe it or not, Bill Bateman's has very good crabcakes...I'd rather go up the street from G&M's to Olive Grove for crabcakes...Much tastier...
