Crab cakes are market priced. Sandwich comes with tartar sauce and a choice of fries, pineapple slaw or salad. Entree comes with fries and pineapple cole slaw. Also available is a steak and cake with mashed potatos and vegetables.
While this cake is on the saucy side, the crab meat is super sweet and tasty. According to the restaurant, the jumbo lump is always fresh, never pasturized, and it shows. The spicing of Old Bay and Hellman's accentuates the sweetness of the crab nicely without overpowering.
I can certainly see why this was voted the best crab cake in Southern MD. There is still some breadyness to the cake despite the sauce, but it is that perfect balance that seems elusive in the crab cake world. The kaiser roll is light and fluffy, and stays out of the way of the cake. The tomato slice could be a bit thinner, and less lettuce used. This is one cake that you would certainly want to order "on crackers" so you can enjoy it in all of its splendor uninhibited. Definitely go for the fries, they're beach style, which are super delicious.
