Frequently Asked Questions

Can I freeze the Crab Cakes?

We have plenty of customers that freeze what they can not consume immediately. They say it is best to defrost the products in the refrigerator prior to cooking. We have not tried freezing our products (other than the soup) so we can not guarantee this method.

Why can't I get a shipping quote online?

First check to ensure the address you input is correct. Depending on the destination, certain locations are required to be shipped Priority for overnight service.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

Comment: We live in the Puget Sound area and are used to good fresh seafood especially crab. A few years back I had a business trip to Baltimore and one of my colleagues told me to have dinner at your restaurant and it was wonderful. A few years later my wife and I were on the East Coast made a special trip to your restaurant before we flew home. Now we do not get back to Baltimore very often, but we love your crab cakes so we order them for special occasions. Thanks for the great crab cakes!

"I found out about this one from one of my most reliable sources: LOCALS, bellboys, busboys and parking attendants. It's located in Linthicum, just outside Baltimore, but they even ship their crabcakes nationwide. The crabcakes are like quiche with crab in it."
