Who's got the best crabcakes on Maryland's Eastern Shore. My wife and I love crab--especailly Maryland Crabcakes...I would like to take her on a trip to the Eastern Shore and enjoy some of Maryland's finest seafood. Also, could you recommend a Restaurant that serves fresh CATCH of The Day---Flounder is my favorite....

oc dreamer,

I made your crabcakes Saturday and they were wonderful. I made a couple of small substitutions, no dry mustard so used yellow wet, no saltines so used 12 Waverly wafers. No time to wait, so chilled them only 1/2 hour.
Best crabcakes ever! Thanks.

Thanks, Sugarlander, I feel it's a no fail recipe.
RE: Baltimore Crab Cakes 2005/03/22 11:24:05
I made 4 to a pound, and 2 of us shared them. How many do you usually get from one recipe? Have you tried to freeze them either before or after you fry them?

I usually make mine a bit smaller, so I get 6 to a pound. When, by some stroke of good fortune, I get more than a pound of crab meat to work with, I have frozen them. I always freeze after cooking them. I wrap them 2 to a pkg & put in a larger bag to freeze. Just pop them in the micro to defrost & warm. Being a true "Baltimoreon" I know the joys of eating crab cakes cold as well as hot, either way is just fine with me. Leftover cakes seldom see the light of the next day!!

I just might try them again this weekend! Central Market now is the only place to get good fresh crab, unless I go to Bolivar, near Galveston. At $20 for a pound of lump, it's a bit pricey, but it was good.

Trader Joe's has a tremendous canned crabmeat in their refrigerated section for about $7.00 ... If you are make crab-anything, this product is worth trying.

I live in Maryland and don't bother making crabcakes at home. I just dash over to Linthicum (near Baltimore airport) to G&M, which I see a couple of people have already recommended. They are to die for. But, get there early! The first time I went, I didn't know and showed up at dinnertime. Waited for over two hours!!!! If you do a late lunch, you should get in with no problem.

Now I'm not really much of a seafood fan, I'll eat shrimp, a nice tuna or mahi-mahi steak on the grill, and that's about it. I don't much care for lobster or crab, but I do enjoy a good MD style crab cake occasionally.
I was fortunate enough to have worked for a while for a fellow in Annapolis, and he introduced me to Cantler's, right on the bay. A real no frills crab shack, where they bring the fresh caught crabs right off the boat and into the restaurant.
Terrific crab cakes, great shrimp salad, cold beer (served in cans!), brown kraft paper on the tables, family style seating, and just a good old fun time at decent prices!

Faidley's Crab Cakes

1/2 c mayonnaise
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 T Dijon mustard
1 T worcestershire sauce
1/2 t hot sauce
1 pound fresh lump crabmeat,drained
1 c crushed saltines(about 20 crackers)

Stir together the first 5 ingredients, and fold in the crabmeat and saltines. Let stand for 3 minutes. Shape into 8 patties.( I use a 1/3 cup to measure them out) Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet, cover and chill for 1 hour. Fry on each side for about 3-4 minutes, in a little bit of oil. Drain on paper towels.*** Sometimes I make them and freeze them**To cook I put them in the oven (frozen)at 400-425* until they are done. They sell Lump crab meat at Sam's Club!!
These are so good I ate 3 of them last night!!! I found the recipe in Southern Living Mag.

I'm thinking about placing an order through Faidley's for Christmas so I can get a fresh supply shipped to me before the big day. Does anyone know what kind of a price/size range I should expect, and has anyone made a shipped-purchase through them through the phone?
RE: Baltimore Crab Cakes 2006/12/16 09:19:32
HP, I've ordered from Faidley's online, but I'll warn you that what they ship is very different than what you can get when you're actually there. They're not bad, just different.

Hungry Pookette-
If you read the other thread that is active right now dealing with Fraidleys and G & M, I think you may decide to order from G&M Seafood. I have tried both locations and find them about equal (in the restaurant). I have ordered G&M twice via the Internet and found them to be a good as the ones served at the restaurant. Other members have commented on that other thread that Fraidleys mail Order Crabcakes are not of the same quality as the ones served in the Market.

Buyer Beware ! Check the comments on this thread...

While "jumbo lump" are the stars at the Market, they must be shipping just plain backfin.
RE: Baltimore Crab Cakes 2007/01/12 20:32:42
The best Crab Cakes I have ever had are found at the Edgewater Restaurant on Mayo Road in Edgewater MD, just south of Annapolis MD. The Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes are the best I have had anywhere. Try them if you zre in the area.

RE: Baltimore Crab Cakes 2007/01/25 21:32:50
With all due apologies, the VERY best crabcakes anywhere on earth are served at LaMotte's in New Freedom, PA. Yes, that's right - New Freedom, PA, east of Shrewsbury PA, in the middle of nowhere. Absolutely the best anywhere. And lest anyone doubt my credentials for such an assay, I was born and raised in Maryland, lived there for 30 years and ate crabcakes at just about every restaurant and market in the state.

No apologies are necessary. However you have to acknowledge that taste in crabcakes like many other foods is a very subjective evaluation. To you the Crabcakes you describe are the best, to others some other location may appeal more. A mutual respect for the opinions of others make the sampling of various locations a lot of fun. You don't have to agree with the other persons opinion, just don't put them down because they differ from your thoughts.

That Said, I haven't tried the ones you mention, but so far G & M and Fraidley's are tied for first place in my book.

Does anyone know if Maryland has an annual crab festival. I imagine that they probably have several, if so, which ones are the best to attend? My husband and I just moved to New Jersey and would like to take a day trip to Maryland for a festival.


I know there is a crab oriented weekend in St Michael's at the Maritime Museum the weekend of 7/26-7/27. There is also the big crab festival in Crisfield it's at the end of August, both are on the Eastern shore. Here's a link to the Crisfield festival

Here's an updated link to Crisfield seafood (and other) festivals and events.

Panko is Japanese bread crumbs, they're shredded, not ground like the conventional style crumbs which gives them more texture, more crunch, less oil retention. And yes, you'll probably find them in the Asian isle of your groceria.

And at Trader Joe's.
