We ordered takeout. The crab cakes were not good. They had lots of filler and not much lump meat. I will not order them again.

This is pretty much the epitome of a Maryland crab house. Be prepared to wait 20-30 minutes, because is usually packed. You can also order carry-out. Great quality food and very friendly service. A relative ordered a fried seafood platter that was also very good.
