Crabcakes were my favorite thing. We went because it was a must have place to go if passing by baltimore. It was good but not incredible. Service was not good. Left us hanging for a while.

Service and food was exceptional! Went there for daughter and son in law’s birthdays. They kept the cake in the fridge until after dinner. Nice touch. NCAA tournament games were visible from every seat.

Will return again for dinner. Will recommend to friends.

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

Came for crabs to only find out they were out for several days. Ended up getting crab cakes that were too breaded and did not have enough jumbo lump.

Only go to Costas for steamed crabs. Everything else is mediocre

Hi Jordan, we are so sorry you were not able to get Steamed Crabs. We do recommend in the future to always call first to see the availability of what we have as our Steamed Crabs go fast and depending on the season we do run into dry spells. We look forward to seeing you back. Cheers!

The floors in the dining room were a mess. Carpeting in the main dining room is unsanitary. We met friends there - all four of us have never been here. I would like to try the crabs some time before passing any judgment on the food quality. The steak was boring and the crab cake was ok, our friend did not like the crab cake.

I came to Costas with my sister for my birthday and I wanted steamed crabs. I asked the waiter what he would recommend since I was only looking for a 1/2 dozen. I ordered a 1/2 dozen of the large at $80/dozen, per his recommendation. I was very happy with my order. The crabs were very yummy and a decent size! I also ordered the MD. crab soup which was good; nice chunks of crab meat in the soup. My only recommendation is to have the soup served a little hotter. I could have asked to have it warmed up a bit, but chose not to do so.
Costas is always a great place to come and get a great meal and/or crabs to eat. You will never go wrong, as far as I am concerned.
My sister ordered a crab cake sandwich with fries. She usually does not eat the entire order, no matter what she orders or the restaurant where she is; she usually takes part of her order home with her. She ate her whole order that night. So the night was yumminess all the way around!
Our server, I am sorry, I do not remember his name; he was awesome; very personable and friendly; cute personality.

Selected Costas Inn after watching FoodTV show with Josh Charles (local boy made good), schooling Iron Chef Michael Symon on Baltimore's best. CI didn't disappoint.

Top 3 for Baltimore's Best in crab cakes for me. (And G&M is NOT one--why are they so popular?) All jumbo lump and light on the Old Bay so the delicate crab flavor is prominent. Crisp fries and not too sweet Cole slaw. Dining companion had the soft shell crab sandwich. She deemed it very good, and I have to say I haven't seen one that large in quite some time. Third companion had a pasta dish. I believe it was the shrimp and scallops with alfredo sauce. She didn't rave but ate it all and said it was good.

I would certainly visit again.
