We were seated at our reservation time. They had called the day before to ask whether we wanted crabs (I had indicated that was so when I made the reservations). I said yes we still did. When we arrived they confirmed that if it was still was so- what was impressive that their reservation system actually can record these things. And that the hostess and server knew about it. We had oysters as an appetizer and then the crabs. I found the crabs to be very good tho a little salty for my taste- but they were still good. Our server was very good. Overall we would be back.

Delicious Greek salad. Yummy Maryland crab soup. Salmon portion very generous but over cooked, bland and dry.
I'll be back and try maybe the crab cakes next time.

Costa's has the best steamed crabs! Every time I have gone, the crabs have been hot, spicy, and very heavy. They have an outstanding cream of crab soup also. The place is always busy, service is great, and I love the fact that the owner or his representative visits the tables to make sure things are going well. Love this place! Go there as much as possible!

It's the must go-to place for the best steamed crabs in the area. The rest of their menu is fantastic as well, including entrees, apps, drinks and desserts. There really isn't anything negative to say about the place.

It was part of my extended Birthday Celebration. We all had Crabs. The meat was sweet and the seasoning "great Baltimore fashion." It also happen to be Lobster Night, but unfortunately my Lobster was overcooked a bit which made it chewy (twice). Other than that, we had a great time.

Rodney, Happy Birthday! We are so happy to hear you had a great time and enjoyed our Crabs. We thank you for sending us the feedback on Lobster and we are so sorry to hear it was chewy. We hope that you will be back out again.

First off I had to wait five minutes to be seated while the hostess got permission to seat me eben though i had a reservation. The salad my daughter ordered was warm and i was not impressed with the crab cake I received. The server had too many tables and there were long periods of time before she came back to us. I was very disappointed after having heard so many good things. Also there was a customer who had a dog which was not a Service dog in the restaurant which was not addtessed by anyone. Wont be coming back

Largest and best crabs we've ever had!!! Super nice staff too. Place was packed and everyone was having a great time including children. The whole experience with the crabs is fantastic and it's great for families. One thing I noticed everyone at each table was talking and interacting with each other which was unusual for today. The reason? Everyone's hands where 2 soiled to touch their cell phones while eating crabs. This was a pleasant surprise and an extra bonus. Prices were a little high on crabs but that should be expected. Drinks for good overall 10 out of 10!

We went to Costas because we had heard they have great crab cakes and were not disappointed. The crab cakes were some of the best we have had, mostly crab with very little filler and very fresh! Service was fantastic with great advice from our server.

This is not a fancy place but food and service are well worth a visit to this family owned establishment.

loved our waiter she was fun and informed about the menu-- the food was ok but not something i would travel across town for -- it was plentiful and good but not outstanding -- there were families and groups which was nice to see -- they were out of crabs so maybe i'll go back for that -- the crab cake was ok not fab -- guest thought the crab soup could use more crabs -- my oyster soup was the best part of the meal
