Concierge.com's insider take:
While several old-line Baltimore crab houses pack in the out-of-towners, locals make a 15-minute drive from downtown to an unlikely suburban spot two miles north of BWI Airport. It can't be for the view—a busy intersection with a pair of gas stations and a donut shop—or the rec-room decor and cafeteria-weight cutlery. Here, it's all about the crab—thick, saucer-size balls of lump crabmeat big enough to choke a shark and bound together with little more than a whisper. The accomplished waiters can handle big parties with aplomb inside the 300-plus-seat space, but expect to wait for a table in the summer, even on a Monday or Tuesday night. Or do the next best thing: Order online for home delivery. G&M ships nearly two tons of crab cakes a week. Yes, they're that good.
Open daily 11 am to 11 pm.
