Weekly reviews of crab cakes around the MD and DC area

Crab Cake Reviews

The Seafood Boss

Food trucks can be a wonderful thing. We like to think of them as a roving food court that typically changes assemblages daily. One one such stroll down the food trucks at Franklin Square, we noticed The Seafood Boss. "Home of the All Lump Crab Cakes" that are also world-famous and award-winning. With claims like that, you know that the CCR had to check them out in our quest to find decent crab cakes in DC. Follow along as we sample their crab cakes and see what the hubbub is all about!


Kahler's Crabhouse

Marylanders love a good crab shack. And Kahler's Crabhouse certainly delivers on the expereince! They've been around since the 1940's, and have been at their current location since 1961. Holding on to traditional values, Kahler's aims to use the same quality ingredients that they've always used throughout their history, preferring Maryland Blue crabs to any other. Where you find crabs, you'll find crab cakes, and if their crabs are any indication, then we should be in for a real treat. Come and join us on our journey, where we put down the mallet, and find out how their crab cakes rate!


Ellicott Mills Brewing Company

If you're not already familiar with Ellicott City, it started out as a Quaker settlement back in 1772, and boasts the oldest standing B&O Railroad station. It is also home to many unique shops and restaurants. One of which is Ellicott Mills Brewing Company. They've been around since 1997, brining a little bit of Germany to this historic town, specializing in Central European style lagers. The food also matches the brewing styles, with a liittle bit of everything for everyone. While the beer may lure us in, if there are crab cakes on the menu, we'll find them! While hard to pass by all of the German tavern fare on the menu, we stuck to our guns and gave them a shot. Read along to see what we thought!
