    Go to Faidley's and have a crabcake and a beer. Preferably on a weekday. It's a little "rustic" down at Lexington Market, but it's the real deal.

    Be careful when ordering the crabcakes be careful! make sure you get the "lump" (they have three different options). The "lump crabcake" is their award winner and definitely the best!

    Crabcake as good as advertised! Didn't even need a side, they make them huge and it really fills you up.

    Skip the crab cakes and try a truly nostalgic taste of Balmore. The Baltimore "Coddie", know to some as a poor mans crab cake, is authentic Balmore hon!

    Be careful when ordering the crabcakes! There are 3 different kinds so make sure you order the "lump". It's the best!

    Best crabcakes you'll ever have. Spring for the lump crabcakes. For sides, you can't go wrong with their macaroni salad.

  • Joe S.

    Awesome food, must try. Love standing table atmosphere - a lot of energy. Connected to Lexington Market. For fans of the show The Wire, many scenes filmed in and around the market.

    Oysters at the bar, grab a tub of horseradish, hot sauce, and join the conversation. A Baltimore treasure.

  • Lidia Bastianich

    These chunky crab cakes were the best I ever had; they looked like huge meatballs. The big lumps of crabmeat were held together by minimal amounts of condiments, and were deliciously sweet.

    Some of the best crab cake sandwiches, plus a raw oyster bar. Dozen raw oysters, add some lemon, horseradish, hot sauce, and wash it down with a Natty Boh!
