So the restaurant has two locations, we went to the one on art 54.. Parking was and always is a nightmare so go off hour. The place is best known for their gigantic meal sized Bloody Mary, with shrimp shrewd and bacon and crab and too much too possibly finish. Not for the budget minded though as I believe it's... More

My husband and I went here twice in 2 days because he loved their crab cakes so much. They were big and awesome!

It is difficult to get good scrapple since most cooks either overcook or undercook the scrapple but at the Crab cake Factory they deep fry it to perfection. There are many other items on the menu. The place is super clean and the staff always friendly.

I’m not impressed with the atmosphere. It’s a big red box. Many, many TVs, with the volume from one sports channel blasted throughout the entire bar/restaurant. There is no difference between the bar & restaurant. (Hard to find because it was dark outside and there is no sign yet!!). I ordered crab dip. Much better in Delaware last summer. I... More

We ate here for dinner and enjoyed their signature crab cakes and delicious homemade chips. The crab cakes were amazing...filled with lumpy and delectable crab - no fillers here. Tasty and filling. They also make homemade potato chips seasoned with Old Bay, definitely give these a try. I do recommend avoiding their side veggies as they were completely soaked and... More

All I can say is, you have to try them! My husband had a blackened tuna sandwich and he loved it. He never 'loves' anything he eats!

The food was great. I thought we were going to have an issue with service as we sat down and waited. The food may have taken a little longer than I had liked but we had just arrived from the long road trip and were all very hungry. The staff seemed to be recovering from a collision and food spill...

I had been hearing raves about the crab cakes so I decided to try them. They are truly pure lump crabmeat with no fillers. They were good but I prefer mine with a little more flavor. Good choice for tourists that want a taste of local seafood. I personally don't like Bloody Mary's but they look amazing. Nice place to... More

Thanks so much for dropping by Christina B. and for all the compliments. We can see from your other reviews you are a tough cookie. We can also see that you are a tourist in Ocean City as you do not live on the shore so not sure why you rated us "fair" with all the accolades and your statment... More
