Weekly reviews of crab cakes around the MD and DC area

Welcome to the Review!

Baltimore and the surrounding area is best known for their delicious crab cakes.  Along with that notoriety comes the age old question:  Who has the best crab cake?  This question has often been the source of many a heated debate, and probably started a fight or three.  The answer is highly subjective.  

Therefore, our goal is to bring the crab cakes to you through a visual and documentary approach.  While we may offer an opinion or two, hopefully we give you enough information to decide whose crab cakes you would like to try on your next visit to the area!  Enjoy!

    Bushmill Tavern
    Bushmill Tavern

    Sometimes we come across a place that takes you by surprise. The Bushmill Tavern in Abingdon, MD does just that. The location is a bit off of the beaten path, and the outside decor is fairly basic. But reading the food specials on the board as you walk in the front door indicates that there might be more than meets the eye. The Bushmill Tavern opened back in early 2014 and features cuisine that isn't typical of your local neighborhood bar. Despite the winter menu still being in effect when we went, crab cakes were available, so follow along and see how they were!

    Blue Crab Grill

    It's not often that the CCR makes their way outside of the MD/DC area. But Newark, DE is right on the MD border, so sometimes you make exceptions. Today's exception is the Blue Crab Grill, a seafood restaurant located just outside of downtown Newark. The Blue Crab Grill prides itself on providing fresh seafood, crabs in season, local microbrews, and wine all in a small, friendly environment. Does the restaurant's namesake pay homage to our beloved crab cake? Let's find out!

    Twin Silos Restaurant
    Twin Silos Restaurant

    Twin Silos Restaurant is located at Geneva Farm Golf Course in Street, MD. Haven't heard of Street? It's near Rocks State Park in Harford County, and is located on, you guessed it, a farm! (Not a working farm, so don't worry about cows and chickens on the course.) On premise is a restaurant that delivers upscale, yet homestyle, dining. Friend of the Review Rick F. had tipped us off on this location earlier in the year, and Twin Silos bills their crab cake as a "culinary hole in one". Was the crab cake worth a country drive on the back roads? Let's find out!
