Crab cakes are available as a single or double platter, both served with your choice of side dish. If that wasn't enough selection, you can also choose between the traditional and colossal crab cakes (the latter being the focus of this review). Crab cake sandwich is also available (but that will just be a single). Platters come with a side of tartar sauce and lemon wedges. Tabasco available at the table. There isn't any table service here, so order at the bar or by the register before sitting down.
The colossal crab cake is made of jumbo lump crab meat, bound together with bread and a creamy sauce mixture. Not too much spice involved outside of the bread and binder. Crab meat is mostly lumps with the obligatory few broken pieces. Some pieces are super large, which come from a mutant crab, or are pieces of blue swimmer mixed in.
The crab meat is really flavorful, with some pieces tasting sweet, the others tasting meaty. As mentioned before, not much by the way of spicing. So aside from the crab meat, the only other predominate taste is the bread/sauce mixture, which tastes more like sweet bread than anything else. It offers a nice balance to the crab meat, which is allowed to make its way through, but the amount of sauce could have been cut back a bit. Side of Old Bay would be nice, so ask your server for a side.
