Five of our Famous Crab Cakes, just a smaller version
Rich and creamy with lump crabmeat, served with warm pita petals
Double Crab Cake
Two of the best crab cakes in town!
Awesome food and great service! Will definitely be a place I will visit again very soon.
My first time coming to this restaurant and location- I heard good news and I’m so glad I finally gave it a chance. The food was so so good, yes it’s pricy but you don’t have to buy the expensive stuff, they have cheaper options! I like that the restaurant is split up into dining, sports bar, and carry out. The service and employees were exceptional. Nothing bad to say! Will be returning frequently
Excellent service and fantastic food - a great place to have dinner with friends
Michael our server was great. We couldn't ask for better service. The food was very good. The mussels were good, very big portion. My plate of the 4oz steak with 3 grilled shrimp was cooked to perfection. The table complimentary salad was delicious as well. The house wine was resonably priced. Overall we had a nice dinner and will return. Thank you.
The greeting at the door and the courteous, friendly, and helpful waiter only enhanced the delicious food. We had the crabcakes and they were every bit as good as is advertised. I had the octopus appetizer which is worth a try as well. Our waiter is one of very few whom I experienced who offered to serve my bourbon neat; usually the customer has to specify. The next time I am in the area I will return.
Wonderful dining experience. We celebrated mom’s 99th birthday.
Out of state relatives joined us for outdoor seating. They loved the crabcakes and thought they were the best they had ever tasted.
Our server was excellent and she treated mom royally.
Excellent drinks. Crab cake was perfect, as always.
In addition to awesome crab cakes and crab Mac n cheese, the ambience was very pleasant and the service was outstanding! It’s quite busy on weekends, so reserve ahead of time.
This was our first time at Pappas Cockeysville I treated my husband for our 15th anniversary. We live in the neighborhood and have been wanting to go for a while. We had a 5:30 reservation. I chose the dining room and it was beautiful.One of several Not many people yet.We chose a booth and our waitress came immediately. We were served ice water rolls and a cucumber salad very good Our order came pretty quickly. My husband ordered the seafood platter and I had the fish and chips platter. Everything was very good except my husband said that the crab cake that he had was not seasoned enough and he knows his crab cakes that's one of the main reasons I wanted to go Oh it was huge and the lump crab was intact but a little disappointed in the taste after hearing so much about it But after bringing leftovers home and we both did because there was a lot of food he put Obay and mustard on it.The other seafood items that he had were excellent Overall it was wonderful and plan to go back soon. And by the time we were leaving the dining room was almost filled
Well done, efficient and delicious even on a busy night in the sports bar during the crab meat shortage! The mark ups are reasonable and the cakes are still very good even when they have to stretch a little. Great job!
Amazing!! We went in the wrong door, but they found us, sat us and checked us in, all without having to go out and come back in. Amazing food. Everything was hot, tasted great and didn't take long to get. They even held our main while we ate our apps and and our meals were still perfect!!
Food was excellent service was good
Great crab cakes for 2 people,
and 2 good fried shrimp dishes
for 2, and great spaghetti and
meatballs for another. Also had
4 great Shrimp bisque. Overall
was a fabulous lunch.
Sat next to table with fussy small infant. Not aware water glass empty needed refill. Little on expensive side. Not offered soup choice til after I mentioned it myself. Also, had made reservations told to have a seat but other couples came in without reservations and were seated before us. Wasn’t told at front desk that we could be seated immediately. So disappointed about that.
The meal was excellent as always- best crab cakes we’ve ever had!
Good fresh seafood. Surcharge on crab dishes is reasonable compared to some other restaurants. Only one concern which has nothing to do with food, toilet seat in bathroom is wobbly.
Very large and delicious crab cakes.
My son had the shrimp bisque and
it was very good.
My wife and I had the broiled salmon and the jumbo shrimp stuffed with Crab Imperial. WOW! The salmon is always great. We brought half the shrimp w/ crab imperial home. Absolutely delicious with many huge lumps of crap in a delicious sauce. Another great meal.
Dined with my mom and had a wonderful time. Mom had a delicious fried shrimp platter and I ordered a perfectly cooked strip steak.
The portions were huge. Our server, Boris, was amazing.
First time dining there that we didn’t order their signature crab cake.
Delicious crab cakes, we each ordered one, my son had the sandwich with French fries. I had a side salad which was crisp, fresh and delicious and my hubby had Cole slaw on the side. Rolls were warm and yummy. Service was excellent. We will be back!
Up charge for crab but understand due to shortage.
As always our dinner’s were delicious. My only complaint is this. I made a reservation for four, high top, in bar area. The reservation site on Open Table specifically asked if a high top was preferred, which I selected. When we got to the restaurant we were told they do not reserve high tops. I know this may not sound like a big deal, however one of my friends has back issues and is much more comfortable when sitting in the higher chairs. If the restaurant cannot accommodate this request it should be taken off reservation site as an option. Thank you
Great crab cake and crab cake sandwich! Great service but a bit pricey.
Pappas is always a great choice for a meal. Best crabcakes and soup, lots of specials, good drinks and great service makes Pappas a true gem.
This is an amazing restaurant! First, the service is top notch. My server (Mike) was attentive, fast, knowledgeable and very personable.
Second, the food was incredible. I ordered the crab soup and crab cake dinner, both dishes were extremely flavorful. The restaurant seafood seasoning enhanced the entrees and would be good on any dish (the seasoning is better than Old Bay in my opinion). I highly recommend this restaurant.
Thanks to Ethan, our server. He was excellent and added to our experience.
Decided to go to Pappas's in Cockeysville instead of Parkville for a change. It was so much better. Didn't feel as cramped or like I was sitting on another table's laps. I do wish they could make the noise level a bit lower, but I realize it is hard to keep people from talking so loudly. Thanks for a nice meal and will definitely come back.
The crab cakes are delicious. My friend got the red snapper which was excellent.
We sat in the bar area for the first time since it was Happy Hour! Loved it! Oysters were delish as were entrees!
Crab cake was superb!! Service was lacking bc half the time we couldn’t find our waitress.
Loved this place!! Crab cakes were excellent!!! Met my Dad here for his birthday....I was nervous because I had never been. Could not be happier!!! Great experience!
Excellent enough I order delivery and this be day shipping to Colorado
Nice quiet with great service
Always good food. Like everywhere else they need to add an extra charge for their crab cakes, but were worth it.
Enjoyable 51st Anniversary Dinner,,,food was delish!
Whenever we come to Baltimore we try to get our fill of Maryland crab cakes, and know that Pappas is the place to go!
Service was impeccable and the food was its traditional very good. Maybe its just the cost of crabmeat, but our overall meal was pricey and portions were only modest for the cost. I recall larger crab cakes in the past.
Outstanding crab cakes as usual but almost had to take out a second mortgage! Crab meat is ridiculous! $30 for one crab cake with two sides! What the heck is going on?!
I was disappointed that one of our entrees, a NY Strip steak, came to the table well done when it was ordered med-rare. It took over 10 minutes to replace, and the two other entrees were just sitting on our table. We either had to eat them and leave one person out, or sit there waiting while they got cold. No monetary apology was made. I expected a glass of wine or dessert on the house as possible appropriate choices, but it didn't happen. The steamed shrimp we ordered for an appetizer were very overcooked. Aside from these two things, we had a very nice dinner and enjoyed ourselves. Go try the crabcakes!
A group of 5 of us had a very enjoyable meal. 4 had the Chilean Sea Bass and loved it. I had the Pork Chops and they were also very good. The only disappointment was Happy Hour items were always available in the restaurant but that has been discontinued. I guess we will sit in the bar area going forward.
