If you like crab cakes, don't miss out on this place. Started out with the Creamy Crab soup and Stuffed Crab Pretzel and followed that up with a Crab Cake platter. This is a must on your travels in and around Baltimore!!!
They ship their crab cakes!!!!

We come here at least 1 x a week if not more. The prices are reasonable and the ambiance is good. We've yet to be let down except when we sat in the lounge are. Highly recommend.

Bad to the bone. That's the way I would describe these crab cakes.

Let's start at the beginning. A really good crab cake brings back great memories from childhood. Since we were driving through Maryland we decided to stop and try By The Docks.

First of all, unless you are here for their brunch buffet (Sat or Sunday from 9-2), be prepared to wait 45 minutes for your food.

Servers are friendly. But the portions are ridiculously large. We've had crab cakes all over the US. By the Docks takes crab cakes to a new level.

It looks like they took 1 lb of lump crab meat lightly seasoned and put that on a bun. There is no way we were going to get that "sandwich" into our mouths. In fact, had I known it was this big I would have saved 2/3rds of it for some other meals. We made sliders with the rolls they gave us.

Yes, I ate the whole thing. I won't be having dinner tonight. Pure crab delight. Nothing more or less.

Service was very good. The food was terrific. And they make great Manhattan. I would definitely go back when I am in White Marsh.
