Service was excellent as was
Service was excellent as was the food. Arrived early and was still seated even though all of my party had not yet arrived. Very impressed with the service and food. Not a fancy restaurant but still excellent place to meet for lunch or dinner.

My first visit.
We were there for the first time ever on Thursday May 16th and specifically traveled the distance from Pa. (where we live) for your crabs. While there we also had a light dinner. We all thought the food was good but were DISAPPOINTED in the crabs. We thought that they were small for the price! $78.00 a doz.!! That said they were full and tasty. We all live in Pa. as I said and agreed we would return for the food menu but not for the crabs.

We really enjoyed this restaurant.
We really enjoyed this restaurant. The stuffed lobster tail was perfect. The service was very good too. We are looking forward to going back for steamed crabs. Additionally, no need to get all decked out. The attire is casual and the atmosphere very laid back. Looking forward to returning soon.

We learned about the Costas Inn from the Today Show. Don't let the atmosphere of this place fool you. We had a great time with our group. The food was wonderful. I recommend the crab cakes. I informed the staff before we arrived about a health condition someone has and they shared what was on the menu that the member of our party would be able to eat.

Order Crabs Early
Costas has the best crabs in the area at (usually) a fair price. It's best to make a reservation and call ahead to make surte you have your crabs when you get there. A friend had the lobster tail and I had some MD crab soup, both excellent.

Best crabs in Baltimore!
Costa's never disappoints; big, meaty, fresh, perfectly seasoned steamed crabs. All year round.

Costa's Is Quality Guaranteed
Costa's is always a great place to eat and have fun. We never hesitate to take folks, especially out-of-towners, for a crab feast taste of our area. The staff are congenial, attentive and helpful. Our waiter was top notch, personable, and entertaining. The steamed crabs were delicious. Dessert was wonderful.

Our family drove an hour because we heard that Costa's Inn had delicious crabs. Well, it was worth the drive! We were seated right away and ordered appetizers of bbq shrimp and potato skins. These apps were fine. Then we ordered two dozen small-medium crabs; this size and small crabs were the only sizes left. One thing we did not realize was that we could have reserved our crabs with our reservation. This way we could have ordered a larger size. Even though the crabs were small, they were delicious! They were so good, in fact, that we ordered another dozen. We also ordered corn on the cob, but the corn had no flavor. All in all, the positives are the crabs! The negatives are the lack of crab sizes, the expense ($60/dozen), and bland corn.

Blue Crabs At Their Best !!!
We LOVE Blue Crabs and on our first trip to Baltimore, friends made reservations at Costas Inn promising we would be impressed. And impressed we were. The restaurant is not much to look at inside or out but that's not why we were there - we wanted meaty, seasoned crabs and we got them ! The waiter was great - friendly, funny, and attentive. The owner came out a couple of times to see how we were doing. The crab were fantastic - perfectly cooked and nicely seasoned. One additional positive was that you could call-in your order a couple days ahead and reserve the size (Med - Large - XL) you wanted to eat. If we ever get back into Baltimore - you can find us stuffing our faces with steamed crabs at Costas Inn.
