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

Best steamed crabs in Baltimore! Crab cakes were awesome! Our server Chuck was personable and had wonderful suggestions for our out-of-town guest. We will definitely return!

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!

This restaurant never fails. The crabs we ordered were hot, spicy, sweet and tasty. They were also very heavy. Chuck, our Wade staff, is outstanding. Anyone looking for a friendly restaurant that delivers quality food should consider Costas Inn.

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 New Years Eve. Great service Karen was on point. 3 tables and 4 at bar was in a group. Had to leave to go to another bar. Band was way too loud it literally hurt our ears. Screaming to the next person was not fun. Had they not been there, we would have stayed all night.

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.
