This family run food experience has to be on any visit to Baltimore, situated within the Lexington markets, this is a place where the locals eat. All seafood steamed or traditional fish and chips. Exceptional value, local charm and support.

A must go place in Baltimore, especially for the ambiance within the Lexington market and the local experience. The crab cakes are indeed great as advertised, but I did feel it was a bit too pricey for the portions offered.

Faidley's Seafood resided in Lexington Market which in my opinion is a dump. It is dirty and needs a lot of TLC. We saw it on I believe the travel channel, however they failed to show the surroundings of the location.
