This is where Baltimoreans take their visitors for steamed crabs. It's one of the few places in the city where you can get both a view and a pile of hot, steaming crustaceans. The fat and spicy crabs are from the Chesapeake when available; otherwise, they're from the Carolinas or the Gulf of Mexico. They've got lots of other seafood entrees, as well as sandwiches, salads, and pasta, but crabs are the standout dish. On warm summer nights, you might prefer the floating pier. Or stop by the Tiki Bar for a cool beer or cocktail. On Saturday nights, make a reservation or you won't get a table.
