Crabs are always good; they were expensive, but I think that's everywhere. Our waitress was decent. Never feel rushed there. It's about 30 minutes from my house - I don't mind the drive. I don't know if I would go there for anything but crabs. Except, maybe the dessert. OMG. They are beautiful and yummy.

Fantastic food selections. This was a perfect choice for two college friends for over fifty years and our spouses. We get together every three months with the choice of where to dine by the location where each couple lives. We scouted out restaurants in the Perry Hall area several weeks before. We visited Conrad’s and liked the menu selections, in fact, there was a special with veal chops which my wife ordered. It was fantastic and at a seafood restaurant. The chef/owner came to our table and asked how my wife liked the veal chops as he said he was experimenting with his Fall menu. We said it was awesome. So, we came back with our friends who happen to be real foodies and they loved the choices and thought food was delicious.

Quality of food and service has definitely declined since I last dined there six months ago. We were there for a birthday , party of 10 and the server was non attentive, non engaged and just not a good experience.

I will not be returning .

Crab cake special for $13 was moist and contained lumps of crab and was served hot! However, curly fries (up charge of $2) were string fries and were barely warm! Recommend the crab cake, but not the "curly/string" fries!

Rated Conrad's a 4 because the crabs were outstanding--very meaty, excellent sweet flavor, and not overpowered by the Old Bay and salt. The appetizers were a mixed bag. Clams on half shell were extremely small to the point that you could hardly taste them. Crab dip over the pretzel on the other hand was quite good. Waitress left us alone for long stretches and drink orders took forever to come to the table.

This place was recommended to me for its steamed crabs and I will do that too. The crabs were great! We ordered the extra large and they were big, heavy, and perfectly seasoned. Tables around us were ordering mussels and other meals and everything looked tasty. I don't live in Baltimore but will certain return to Conrad's the next time I want seafood.

My waitress was fantastic. She was attentive to our needs, as well as, her other tables. She routinely made sure we had full drinks. The only complaint was the live band was very loud. I would not have been able to hold a conversation at our table. We were able to move upstairs without any problems.

Based on how Conrad’s came to be, their history, it was a pretty good bet our first time experience would be worth the drive from Cecil County. Having lived in and around Baltimore and up & down the east coast 52 yrs now I must say never have crab eating, & the taste of, been more enjoyable. Their operation is completely invested in the overall satisfaction of each customer. And the displayed pastries were very inviting as we made our way to the front door. Yum!

Our favorite place for steamed crabs. This time we tried other menu items as well. Havana black rice was delicious, as were the rock fish bites, although the portion seemed a little small for$10. Our waitress was friendly and super accommodating. Nothing but good things to say. Again.

We had dinner there to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The service was very good. The food was great - crabcakes, bacon scallops appetizer, crab fries - were all excellent. The power went out for about 20 minutes and we still got our food within a good window of time. The only downside is the lack of parking but they do have free valet parking.

Still do not understand why this place is so busy - crabs are normally good but I have never had a good experience with the food (eat-in or carryout). The burger was terrible - wings were ok but can not do much wrong with fried food. If you want crabs I would go to MR Bills!

This was my first visit to Conrad's after receiving dozens of Facebook ads from them. I was really excited about finally being able to dine there and had high hopes. I ordered the shrimp po' boy sub. It was literally one step away from being burnt. The batter on the shrimp was dark brown, the shrimp inside were overcooked and dry, and the bread was so stale that it fell apart when I bit into it! I should have sent it back, but I get worried about what the kitchen staff will do to my food if I send it back with a complaint! My guest had a shrimp salad sandwich and said her bread was stale as well. The shrimp salad itself was ok, but could have definitely been fresher. The only thing good about this place was the staff. We were seated right away (we had a reservation) and our waiter was a nice guy. I will not, however, be returning, and will block their ads on Facebook!
