Mini Crab Cakes
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!
Our server, Justin, was great! That being said, I don't know what the issue is in the kitchen but they have NEVER gotten my order correct - and I usually order the same thing, and since they always screw up my order I am very specific with the server, and STILL they mess it up!
It's not that hard - I order a hot roast beef platter with french fries - and I want the bread toasted (so it's not soggy by the time it gets to the table) - NEVER gets toasted - and gravy over everything including the fries - never get the gravy on the fries and a couple of times they've sent it out with mashed potatoes. Do they not pay attention? Do they just ignore the server's instructions? I love the roast beef platter - the meat is always tender - I love the gravy (obviously) - but I just can't figure out why they can't get it right!!!
Justin was very apologetic when he came to check after our order was brought out by a runner - offered to take it back to get it re-done with the bread toasted - brought out a big bowl of extra gravy.
Our favorite place to eat crab cakes.
There were four people in my party. Everyone was completely satisfied with their meal from appetizer to desert. The crab meat and steak was excellent and other seafood ordered was great.
Pappas was Great!!!! We went to Pappas to celebrate my mothers birthday. The reservation was originally for 6 and ended up being for 24!!! They were so accommodating, let me change the reservation and we didn’t have to wait long for our seats. Christian and Michael were are servers and they were awesome!! The food was fantastic! Best crab cake I have ever had - lump, minimal filler., well seasoned. YUMMY!!! Definitely going back.
The manager of the restaurant went out of his way to take care of my needs
We were in town for a college golf tournament and had read great reviews about this place so we decided to visit. It was also recommended by our hotel. We were completely let down as our experience did not live up to the great reviews. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer and the mushroom itself was hot, however the filling was cold, and for four small mushroom caps at the cost of $25.00 this was definitely NOT worth it. We also ordered simple pub food, which is a good portion of the menu, that really was no different than any other pub (Buffalo Chicken Wrap and Philly steak sandwich). Our server was not attentive at all, it took us a 1/2 hour to get our check while she was chit chatting behind the bar, and then another 1/2 hour for her to process our payment. It's a typical locals bar scene, definitely not something to write home about. For as pricey as it was I would've chosen to go elsewhere had it not been for the initial reviews. Since there will be a next time as we will be in the area again, we will definitely be seeking other alternatives.
Phenomenal food and presentation, service was awesome and ambiance was great.
Our server Mike was attentive and not over bearing. He was very professional yet personable. When I return, I would love to sit in his section
consistentky good food
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!
