    If you’ve never torn a crab apart with your bare hands, ask the staff for a tutorial. They’re happy to show you the Marylander way!

    Awesome crabs!!! Seasoned just right and juicy. The seafood bake, crab balls and corn are great as well. The Maryland mules were excellent. Great eating experience

    This place is awesome. Great spot right on the water. Loved the cream of crab. Bobbi Jo waited on us, she was awesome. Ask for her, good food and good service.

    Imagine a BLT, except with the bacon swapped out for an entire crab. If that sounds appealing, you'll find the soft shell crab sandwich delightful.

    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.

    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 $3 cover carved on the deck is only when there is live music. Not at all lame when compared to other live music venues. No bump in drink prices, either.

    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.
