The food was awesome like always, i usually do take out but tried dinning in. The service could have been better
Nothing special here folks. Was fairly empty on a Friday afternoon.
We were meeting family and friends after some time apart. The restaurant was accommodating and after served welcomed us to continue our visit. Everyone was pleased with the selections.
Celebrated my birthday with family and friends. Seated promptly with reservation. Food was superb. Waitress very kind and accommodating. Highly recommend.
Server was inattentive, food underseasoned
Crab cakes lived up to the hype. Everything was great. Price wasn’t as high as I thought it was going to be when we got the bill. Good drinks.
Crab cakes will not disappoint!! Had great and friendly service. Portions were big, had leftovers 😋
I love Pappas Great Crab 🦀 Crabs With the 🍤. Cocktails are delicious too.
Crab cakes are awesome...crab meat vs. filler food.
Thought everything was good , the waitress good have been a lot better
Great food and great service. Nice ambiance. Enjoyed my dinner
The Crab cake was very good and the service excellent.
First time here. Could not know where the crab came from. Food was decent.
Our server, Diana, was wonderful - kept our glasses full and checked back often. The collosal crab cake and rib-eye were excellent. Tonight's special was prime rib. Two people in our party ordered the prime rib - one medium rare and the other medium. The cook obviously does not know how to cook, prepare, or serve prime rib. Prime rib should be roasted as a whole roast, and sliced right before serving. How then do both sides of the cuts served come out totally brown and brown all of the way through? Serving au jus with it does not make up for the fact that you've dried out the cut of meat. That's not how it should be prepared or served. Should not advertise prime rib night if you don't know how to prepare it.
Best crab cakes ever. Exactly as advertised
We met some friends for dinner and we're glad we made reservations as the restaurant was crowded. We all enjoyed the crab cake platter with a baked potato. We were pleased to find that the crab cakes were discounted. We all decided to share a piece of coconut cake for dessert - that too was quite tasty. We look forward to a return visit.
Great ribs - Tuesday is rib night - do not miss it!
Love the food....
Love the restaurant....
Love our server....Brooke!!
We held my mother in laws's surprise birthday dinner here. We had about 30 people in our party and our waiter was nothing short of amazing. I believe his name was Brian or Brandon (sorry I'm bad with names) he was patient with our guest and even helped me with presenting my mother in law her birthday cake. I would diffidently recommend Pappas.
Crab cakes are amazing.
Went for a farewell get together with friends. The crabcake was really good!
Changed my mind on Best Crab Cake Pappas has the Best. I have been promoting an other Baltimore restaurant for years to everyone for years but I will be recommending Pappas now.
We love going to Pappas for the crab cakes! We have tried them from many different restaurants but we like the ones at Pappas the best. What makes them so good is they are so full of jumbo lump crab meat in every bite. We recommend Pappas to everyone looking to eat a good crab cake!
The food is consistently good and sometimes great, and the service is top notch. The only issue we have with Pappas is the very limited wine list. Although our most recent meal was superb, the wine was totally lacking. We ordered their top shelf Chardonnay, which proved to be extremely disappointing. We really enjoy a nice wine with our meal, but Pappas continues to fall short in this critical area. We'll continue to visit Pappas in hopes that they strive to improve the quality of their wine list.
Awesome experience, crab cake was absolutely the best.
Got to be one if not the best crab cake in Baltimore!!!!
Had the lunch special - amazing bargain. Fabulous crabcake!
The crab cakes are my favorite! So well worth the trip!
Food just wasn't up to par tonight. A lot of filler in the crab dishes and taste was not fresh. Will try one more time to see if it was just an off night, but not for awhile.
We heard from a friend the crab cakes were exceptionally good, so we gave it a whirl. We were not disappointed. Although it takes 25 minutes or so to get served, it was well worth the wait. Two amazingly huge delicious crab cakes with little filler. We hit the right night since it was Wednesday and crab cakes were the special of the evening not knowing beforehand. This restaurant is a definite repeat and worth the drive from Ellicott City. All thumbs up!
Amazing crab cakes! One of the best I've had! Very generous portions and tasty.
I enjoyed the food; but one table of patrons were very loud and ignorant. They were throwing out racial slurs and cursing like sailors. The food was great and our waitress was great. There was a bit of a wait, but that's to be expected when one of our party guest was late and held us up a bit. I still would give it another try.
A little too much filler in the crab cake this time. It happens. Our waitress Brooke saved they day with great service and bev's. Will be back soon.
I visited Pappas in January and loved the crab cake so I recommended that a group of friends meet there after our beach week. The food was consistently good, the waitress could not have been nicer to us. We had 1230 reservations, arrived at 1220 and the table was ready (I would have preferred a table that wasn't next to the door, but the place was crowded and so I was happy to have a place to eat!). We were not rushed, in fact the place quieted down around 130 and our waitress told us to relax and enjoy being together - we left around 4!
Great crab cakes!!!! We go to Olive Grove for crab cakes nearly as good with unlimited salad and breadsticks.
My son's 1st experience celebrating his 16th birthday, loved it!
Food here is always great and the prices are reasonable. We come here often and are never disappointed. This was the celebration of an 89th birthday for a gentleman in our party. I mentioned it to the waitress as well when I made the reservation. I had hoped they would do something special for the gentleman.
Excellent food and service. 5 stars for the crab cakes. The best!
Crab Cakes were excellent as always. Roast Beef was also excellent. Woman party member said soup of the day had three pieces of bone in it. Not sure what type of soup it was. Food was hot and service was very good.
Instead of having their very famous crab cakes, we both had a shrimp dish served over pasta. One dish was served with zucchini while the other was served with a vodka sauce. Both were excellent.
