Have been coming to Pappas for years - this was the first time that I was disappointed with the crab cakes! Very bland and watery. I had even purchased some crab cakes to bring home and cook the next night and they also were not very good. Hope this was a one time occurrence!

The server forgot butter for the bread and the Whiskey Sour. Server was also short with conversation. The dinning table was placed right next to another table and we would constantly bump arms while eating, due to close proximity. Pasta was good and so was the crab cakes.

Have not eaten here this century but the seafood is still great. They now have an expanded beer and wine list. This is still a Baltimore neighborhood restaurant with typical local specialties, so dress nice and bring your Hon.

One of the best places for crab cakes. I ordered the seafood risotto which was delicious, and since it was a special that night, the entree came with soup, salad, and a vegetable. Great value. Always feel comfortable and welcomed.

Excellent food and superb service by Daniel. Wait staff was very attentive. More than one person saw to our table. The Crab Cake lived up to its reputation. Loved the rock fish and crab in caper sauce.

Have eaten at this restaurant for years. The quality is something you can count on. The lump meat in the crab cake was way above average. Maryland crab soup was fine. I haven't yet tried their other locations. Perhaps, I'll do this on my next trip to Baltimore.

After hearing about the food, especially the crabcakes, for years, we finally went for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. Although we made a reservation, it wasn't quite packed but soon after we started eating it was. Parking was a little tight and the table was small for our party of 6 adults.

Just a wonderful experience, and food was as all reviews said it would be. We had a drink at the bar, and ate the crab dip appetizer, while bartender entertained.
We tried the double crabcake, Delish and Yuuuge, and they spoiled us with service, including a taste of a desert that we did not get. We did try the Apple caramel cheesecake which was heaven. Definitely a favourite, will return.

The food is very good. However I HIGHLY recommend making a reservation. I have gone there a couple times with no reservation and the wait was crazy long that I left. But for me that's the only down side. The food is excellent.

we were told when we were seated that no orders were taken after 8 P. M. Would have liked to have had that info when I made the reservation. The table was very cramped for 7 people. Fortunately for us one guest could not come. It was tight quarters for six.
My crab cake dinner was very good, can't speak for the other guests.

We came to Pappas as part of an extended birthday celebration...of bowling & crab cakes! After a spirited round of duckpin bowling at Parkville Lanes (fabulous!), it was a short 1.2 mile hop to Pappas where the parking was easy, the service friendly, and the crab cakes delicious! A good time was had by all.

In my review I stated that the atmosphere was QUIET. This is not the norm as the restaurant has always been busy. However, one in our part is hearing impaired and we requested a quiet area. They were very accommodating and set us up in their upstairs which was quite quiet.
