Very friendly people. I choose it to take out because of the smell. The food was good quality and the beer was cold. The crab cakes were not lump crab, but it was solid crab with great flavor with very little filling and large size.

Lestardo's is a neighborhood taproom with a rough around the edges crowd. Very Red Neck kind of place but very friendly. Food is pretty much limited to Blue Crabs, brought in fresh every day when they can get them. Clams, steamed, Shrimp - Steamed an...More

It;s a crab shack! They have cold beer, hot crabs and plenty of Old Bay. No, it is not plush or elaborate... They put down paper and dump crabs on laminate top tables. I thought the prices were fair and the people friendly. If you...More
