Pull up and park in front of this bistro/diner and as you go in you smell the water and hear the gulls greet you. Have been here several times and the come back item is the crab soup. Not the traditional soup as when you put your spoon in the bowl, the 'soup' keeps the spoon standing up. Lot's of... More

As others have said, don’t judge this book by its cover. Once you get past the crab shack exterior and décor, you will be treated to some heavenly crab dishes from the heart of Maryland. Start with the Maryland crab soup. It’s one of the best I’ve eaten, and I’ve sampled a lot of bowls. A very rich spicy broth... More

Six of us went to dinner last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Wonderful service! From the outside, this restaurant doesn't look like much but the meals are absolutely wonderful. Within our group we had cheesesteak subs, cream of crab soup, MD crab soup, soft crab sandwiches, fried oysters and crab cakes Everything DELISH! For dessert we had brown sugar... More

Largest softshell crab I have ever eaten. It was delicious. Also had a six oz crabcake. Full of large chunks of crab meat. Just enough filling to hold everything together. The sides were also excellent. I had a cumber salad and pasta salad. Staff is friendly and helpful. Quaint little building with an out side porch with a water view... More

My husband and myself and two friends went here the other night because Stoney Creek Inn was voted one of the "Best Crab Cakes in Maryland!" So needless to say I had the Crab Cake. It was very good...not the best that I have had in Maryland but I would definitely put it in the category of one of the... More

What an awesome memory! Sister and I had lunch together and ordered the Fried Hard Crab. Must say, it brought back some awesome memories of our younger years. Nice young couple owners have made the place look very nautical. The service was good and food was terrific. Will definately be back. 🖒

I'm an ex-Marylander, and always need my crab cake fix whenever I'm home. My friend's brother recommended the Stoney Creek Inn. It was delicious! I had fried clam strips for an appetizer, and a crab cake with fried oysters for my main course. Everything was delicious! The only thing that was less than perfect was my friend's cup of Maryland...

Found this little gem from Dinner, Drive-Ins and Dives and what a wonderful spot! We had crab chowder with huge lumps of crab through out. I could eat this every night! We moved on the crab cakes. It was ALL crab no filler of bread or veggies. The only binding was a fabulous sauce , a little spice and a... More

We were first timers here and did not know what to expect. Our waitress went above and beyond to welcome us and show us the ropes. The Cream of Crab soup was out of this world- Lump Crab, Cream and spices- NO FILLERS! Loved that. On to the Crab Cakes- same lump crab with a minimum amount of binder. Well... More
