Best Crab Cakes in MD.

Hey guys! Long time no post!
 
I can remember lots of conversations about crab cakes here. Faidley's or G&M -- that was the brawl. Well, time has passed since those arguments, and it seems that Faidley's has fallen off the top 10 list in MD, and G&M is 9th.  In fact, 2 Baltimore spots, Koco's and Pappa's both topped G&M for Baltimore's best cakes.
 
One of my favorites, Chick & Ruth's Delly is at #5. The #2 and #1 MD Crabcakes are out at the shore in OC. Let the counter arguments begin!

BTW - the best MD Cream of Crab is right in my town, "Big Fish Grill" .... but that's a whole 'nother thread. :)

Admittedly, this is not a MD Newspaper, rather USA today. MD residents can easily add some more off-the-beaten-path places that USA Today readers wouldn't venture. For example, I can personally attest for: Stoney's in Broome Island; The Lighthouse in Solomon's Island; J. King's in Gambrills; Harris Crab House in Kent Narrows; Fat Boy's in Crofton, MD --- to name a few.
 
But, I think any of the 10 on the list are good bets as well.

Welcome back!
 
Just as any list of "best" steakhouses must include Peter Luger's, any list of "best" crab cakes must include G&M.  And deservedly so.

Welcome back Scorereader!!!
 
Had G&M not long ago. Excellent as ever.
 
Co-workers rave about Box Hill (#10), but it’s far away from me.
 
I have always heard great things about KoKo’s and Pappas.

I don't see any of this on my phone. Maybe that's a good thing. Glad you're alive and well and hungry, Scorereader.

Did something get spammed? Sorry about that Ann if something came through with my post.
 
Thanks for the welcome old friends! Every time I find a new dive bar with good food I think of you all. I should write more!
 
BTW - Tune Inn on Capitol Hill in DC (which is 2 blocks from work) is still every bit as divey as usual and the food is still great. Meanwhile, formerly great dives like and Hawk & Dove and The Pour House have all been gutted and are now modern/rustic/chic taverns. The great group of Cap Hill dive bars are dwindling. Oh well, finding new places in Anne Arundel County!

You didn't get spammed. Some idiot is Spam-flagging posts for no reason other than nastiness.

thank you folks for the welcoming, and thanks for explaining me what was happening Michael.
 
hey, eruby, I went to some cool places in Carroll County since I last posted -- god knows when. A sandwich shop in New Windsor, Uncle Matts, and in Westminster, The Stables. both were lunchtime.

Been to The Stables a few times.  Good but nothing special.  Always lots of cars in the parking lot.
 
I will have to check out Uncle Matts.
 
I'm sure you are familiar with Hoffman's ice cream;  "It's the best in the city."
