    What Heidi Klotzman loves about Baltimore: "I like Nick's because what's not to like? You're on the water, the shrimp salad is dangerously delicious and it feels like a mini-vacation." Read more

    Love the orange crushes, crabcakes and crabs on the outside deck! Can't wait for Ravens season.

    Billed as a restaraunt/crab house. Nick's is still the best spot in Baltimore to sit out on the deck, sip on a Natty Boh, and listen to live music on the water!

    The fried green tomato and crab appetizer is delicious, as is the seared rockfish sandwich. Everything was very fresh and cooked perfectly.

    Crab cake dinner was good, and they honored the foursquare free drink deal. They charge $3 to sit on the deck on Sundays after 4, which is lame.

    Excellent food and drinks. On a nice day, be prepared to wait for a waterside table -- over 1 1/2 hour wait when we visited on 6/27/14.

    The crab dip dint have enough crab. Our crab was dry when they promise fresh crabs everyday. When we place our order the crab came out 10 minutes after when at least should be 20 to thirty minutes.

    If you are looking for crabs, go to the Cross Street Market location where they are half the price.
