Faidley Seafood has the best lump crab cakes my husband or I have ever eaten. Lexington Market is a little out of the way but well worth the metro ride!

We love this great, long-established market for some super fresh seafood! Freshly shucked oysters are THE BEST around! Great place for a wonderful lunch. Don't forget to stop at Mrs. Burger's cookies in the market for another Baltimore tradition.

No they do not take reservations; it's not a restaurant, per se, it's a good stand w/seating. Yes, it is a 5-10 min walk to the arena.
