Mini Crab Cakes
Five of our FAMOUS Crab Cakes, just a smaller version
Crab Cake Platter
Featured on the cover of Baltimore Magazine! World Famous Crab Cake, with two sides of your choice
Great service and good
Typical sports bar atmosphere with lots of big tv’s for good sports viewing. I enjoyed the Greek salad. Good drinks and sandwiches. The calamari was crisp and tasty, but very chewy.
Great date night. The food was delicious and our server was very attentive.
The special Chilean sea bass & crab was phenomenal
My companions enjoyed the crab cake ( best in Baltimore) crab imperial & seafood risotto
They all thought the dishes were outstanding
The service was fine but our server had too many tables so the manager took our order & got our drinks & had Someone deliver our food
I would go back in an instant
The vibe the food & the curtsey were wonderful
We were able to be seated at the bar since all the hightop tables were taken and seating at the bar was available. Service was a little slow to start, but we're regulars so Chuck and Todd were able to catch up to us. They know we're not usually in any kind of a hurry. Food was delicious as always. I seem to always forget to take a picture of what we are served, but trust me the mussels in white sauce were gone in no time and the main courses we both had were delicious. You really cannot go wrong with a meal at Pappas.
I think that because they have such high rating for their crab cakes, they focus so much on that and neglect the rest of the menu. The crab cake is yummy, but everything else needs more effort. The pork dumplings tasted like they were frozen and microwaved, the Alfredo tasted like store bought Alfredo sauce, the salad was pretty good though. Overall, it wasn’t too bad but I was a bit disappointed being it was my first visit.
We had a fantastic waiter, Santiago, who was very attentive to our needs.Food as always was excellent. One of our go to places!
We cannot get good crab cakes where we live, so we always go to Pappas when we are in town. We are never disappointed! Best crab cakes ever!
We were a party of 6 and the restaurant was very accommodating to our group. It was clean, service was excellent. Everyone was happy with their meals
Best Gluten free crabcakes !
The place is neat and welcoming. The service was very good and the food was delicious.
Great neighborhood seafood restaurant.The only real negative is that the carpeting was worn out. Food,drinks and service were very good.
Can't wait for restrictions to be lifted to sit at the bar again. Until then, plenty of space at the Hightower and booths. Plenty of attention from the bar staff. Food is always off the charts delicious.
Nothing but great things to say about Pappa’s! Their new octopus appetizer was AMAZING! One of the best preparations of octopus we’ve ever had - would highly recommend trying it! It is a very generous portion and comes with a real traditional Greek salad of cucumbers, tomatoes, feta, onion, olives and peppers on the side. The Steak and Cake is another best of the best and their homemade applesauce is hands down my favorite. Can’t go wrong with anything on their menu and even if you are too full to eat dessert - take one home for later. You won’t regret it 🙂
Was very impressed with the service as well as the food
Crab cake was spectacular, we will be back again and again and again!
Great as always.
Excellent food and our server was so very accommodating as I was catching up with an old friend and we sat for awhile in the Bar at a booth. Great Friday lunch!😊
Unfortunately our meals came out directly after our appetizers and after the entrees came out she brought the salads. I ordered the seafood platter and the crab cake was delicious. Unfortunately the shrimp and scallops were over cooked and rubbery. We have eaten here a few times before and never had this problem.
The food drinks and service were exceptional. The establishment was nice and clean. Everyone was attentive to our needs.
Rhonda is the perfect server. She was pleasant, not-too-hovering, offered many menu suggestions (at our request). Crab soup and cake delicious. Reuben was "different."
Love this place. Great food, and with the social distancing orders in place, had folks there practically falling over themselves to assist with our order. Everything is always up to par. Service is fast and courteous. Can't wait for it to fully reopen so we can sit at the bar again. You can't go wrong for the moment though, and I highly encourage people to dine here. So many restaurants in the area have permanently closed. Certainly don't want that to happen to Pappas. While the manager Justin told me take out orders have been keeping them going, the regular servers there need income too. So set up a reservation on OpenTable and dine out tonight!
We've spent the last 10 years going to Pappas' for a birthday dinner. Only thing that changed this year was adding the fielet to the crab cake. OUTSTANDING!!!
Had a very nice time , will come back again food was so good
Very COVID friendly. The service was excellent and the food was delicious as always! The best crab cakes next to my own!
Liked how restaurants was set up for social distancing. Workers wore mask.
Great staff. Food as spectacular as ever!
Pappas has done a wonderful job in compliance with social distancing and "comfort" level for their customers! Although our permanent residence is in SC, we always try to stop by for Pappas' quality food and comfortable setting. Well done in these difficult times!
The menu is extensively I was able to order a nice salad and crab stuffed mushrooms. They were very generous with the crab. Rolls with dinner were warm. My husband had wings and a delicious hamburger. We ate outside. Service was very attentive. We had a lovely dinner. We have been to Pappas many times and will continue to come in the future. It’s nice for a casual meal or any other occasions.
Food is always great. Good job done during the pandemic.
Never an issue at Pappas, particularly now that the tables are so spaced apart. Food was outstanding as usual. So it's an enjoyable place to eat even when it was packed, and now it is an absolute pleasure that it isn't. Reserving a table via OpenTable just makes it as easy as can be to get a spot and enjoy a great meal.
Of course during this time the restaurant was not at its normal pace. The food was good, but as expected nothing extra i.e. bread, cucumbers,etc. Service was reasonable and a bit faster than usual.
Great food and atmosphere. Have NEVER had a bad meal there.
Amazing food, staff and atmosphere! A must if you are in the area!
The Chicken Chesapeake was a big hit with my husband - a thick slice of chicken topped with mounds of big lumps of crab and covered with cheese. Too much for me to eat, but he had no problem finishing it. I had the 4 oz filet (cooked medium and really tender) with shrimp with a delicious, garlicky sauce and toast points to sop it up. My asparagus side was perfectly cooked. I ate some of my husband's sweet potato fries - yum! Our server was excellent - very attentive and friendly. We sat in a booth, and it had privacy shields between the booths, so it was nice and quiet. Pappas is usually crowded and noisy, but because of the coronovirus and the extra space between tables, we almost had the whole front dining room to ourselves.
Crab cakes were fabulous!!! Staff was friendly and professional. Definitely going back!
Fantastic crab cakes as always!
Ate inside during COVID...they Did a great job making us feel safe and sanitary, except for the vinyl menus.
Great service ...delicious crab cakes!
Food is always outstanding at Pappas. A lot less crowded now that they have taken some tables out for social distancing, and no one can sit at the bar. Would have liked to sit at the bar but I guess that isn't possible right now. So same friendly staff and same great meals in a much more quiet atmosphere. Our first time out in months and was well worth the experience. You will have to make reservations to get it. Thank goodness OpenTable is just the ticket to make that happen.
