Food was great. Really crowded on Saturday nights. Crab cakes are a little expensive but was really good. Best fries in MD.

This place is not to be missed. The crab cakes are superb, whether dining in or carrying out. The dining room is cozy and the atmosphere is noisy, but friendly. The pizza is good too, but go got the crab cakes.
