Faidley Seafood

There are many, many, many places to get a crab cake in Baltimore, but only one Faidley's. It's hardly the most glamorous place to dine on divinely lumpy, golden cakes, but it's certainly one of the most democratic--packed along Lexington Market's counters you'll be cheek by plastic fork with downtown suits, safety orange vest-wearing road-crew guys, and tourists in search of a real-deal local delicacy. Simple is best here: Splurge on the all-lump crab cake and take it unadorned, its craggy-surfaced homeliness bespeaking the large chunks of back fin inside. Break apart the generously sized patty with said plastic fork and breath the salty, buttery Old Bay scent of perfection. Pile onto a saltine cracker (optional) and enjoy.


Best of Baltimore Winner:

Best Crab Cake

We tried. We trekked out to a much-praised shall-not-be-named crab-cakery and laid down our dough and hoped for the Best. But it wasn’t. The crab wasn’t from Maryland, the portions were generous but the flavor was meh, and after it was all over we just wished we’d spent that money on a crab cake from Faidley’s.
