Maryland Crab Cakes
Two 5 oz. cakes made with jumbo lump crab (broiled or fried)
a Maryland favorite!
Fresh leaf lettuce with Feta, kalamata olives, pepperoncini, cucumbers, tomato & onion.
Had a great time at Costa Inn today. Our waiter Chuck was the best. There were 10 of us in our party and we were all pleased with our service and food. We will definitely be coming back again.
So my husband was super excited about the crabs since that is what they are known for. When they came we were originally pleasantly surprised by their size. However eating them was another story. They were way over seasoned in a salty kind of way. I personally only ate one because I did not enjoy them. My husband who normally eats a lot of them could only muster two and his lips were burning and red from being eaten up by the salt. We took the rest home and had to thoroughly wash them off prior to eating them. The cream of crab soup did not have much crab meat in it and had lumps of starch or flower whatever they used to thicken it. My shrimp salad sandwich was very tasty and I am not sure how the crab cake was we ordered to go for our daughter but for $20 it seemed small. Overall I would say it was way too expensive for the quality food. Don’t think we will be back. The service was just ok, not overly attentive but definitely not rude.
We are so sorry to hear that the seasoning was too spicy for you. We hope you were able to enjoy them when you got home. We will certainly share your feedback on the Cream of Crab soup with our team and we would love to hear how your daughter enjoyed our famous Crabs Cakes. We certainly hope that the Crabs won't keep you from returning. We certainly can steam them next time with very little seasoning or even dry. We look forward to seeing you back. Have a great week.
We had a great meal here on Christmas Eve day, and we will definitely be back. They had fantastic crab cakes, chicken and crab and salmon and crab.....also the waiter could not have been nicer boxing up our desserts and our shrimp to go, which were delicious! Thank you so much for making our holiday night fantastic.
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.
Absolutely, everything was great, the atmosphere was wonderful as well.
Thanks for your feedback Michele. It's so great to hear you had a wonderful time and we hope you will join us again soon.
Thanks for the 5 stars Lisa!!
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!
Anniversary party great service great food!
Thank you so much for your 5-star review. We are so happy to hear you had a great time and great service. We hope you will be back to join us again soon.
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.
Thank you for leaving us a fantastic review! We're glad you had a great time with us, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Great place, foods was on point and the server was awesome. Great friendly restaurant, I highly recommend it.
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.
the waitress was to fast, it seam like she was trying to get us out to fast.
Thank you so much for your 5-stars. We are sorry you seemed rushed by our server and we hope you will accept our apology. Have a great weekend and we hope to see you back.
Overall the food was good but the noise level was such that you could not talk to one another. The seats of the chairs were very uncomfortably hard
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear it was a little loud for you. We hope that you will come back ing the future and give us another chance to wow you.
As always, the crabs were delicious and the service excellent.
Thanks for this great review! We’re always thrilled to hear from happy guests like you. Looking forward to your next visit!
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
Great place for grabs and atmosphere,highly recommend.
Thanks so much for joining us and for your great review. We are so glad you love our Crabs and we hope you will join us again soon.
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!
Costas was outstanding!! The food was great, the waitress was very friendly and the manager was super sweet!!
My go-to place each year with family for my birthday and it never disappoints. Terrific service as well.
Fantastic Maryland steamed crabs and outstanding Maryland crab soup. I live in New York but try to stop by Costas for a meal as often as I can when my travels bring me to Baltimore. A must do!
Awesome as always!
Great crabs! Bill was lower then I expected which was a plus. We had a great time! Our waiter was awesome!
Love Costas! Been going here for years ! I highly recommend!
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.
Food and service were excellent. We were there for lunch on a weekday. Lots of locals coming in and enjoying lunch. Staff were attentive and professional. Loved it.
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.
The food and service were excellent. I would definitely recommend Costas Inn to my friends. The waitress was above excellent, ask for Mega !!
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.
The service was good. The food is good as well they fry clean.
Thank you so much fro your 4 stars and review!
Great place, friendly atmosphere
Thanks for your 5 stars and review.
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.
Love Costas! Food, service, and hospitality! Awesome!
Linda, thank you for taking the time to send us this review and your 5 stars. We look forward to seeing you back soon.
OMGGGGGG! The food was excellent. It was so delicious. The server was very attentive, great giving feedback with suggestions and didn't miss a beat with attending to our needs. Costas is a restaurant that deserves to be placed on a frequent dining list. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
We are loving your review SAMM! From the service to our food we are so honored to hear that everything was excellent.
The food as always was excellent and the staff is always super friendly and helpful. I highly recommend if you are looking for good seafood in the Dundalk/Edgemere area
