Upon arrival, it was a bit more chilly outside then we expected but we were able to switch to indoor seating with no issues. Food was excellent, server was great. They're COVID-19 compliant. We will definitely be back. They also had the large screens so we were able to enjoy the March Madness games!

We love Conrads food. If you ever go there get an order of Conrad Fries. We have never been without ordering a bowl and trust me its big enough to share but you may not want to...lol We went for St. Patty's day food and just like the last 5 yrs they did not disappoint. my husband and I both had the corn beef and cabbage, it was so much per portion I took part of mine home. Never one to get dessert we decided to splurge and order a piece of the Apple Crumb Cheesecake. It was really good, just wish the portion was bigger bc we split it...lol

The food was very good. They had fried hard crabs which aren’t always easy to find. Not too greasy or too doughy but just right. Matt, our server, was excellent. Music was a tiny bit loud but not too bad. And we’re old guys so we make exceptions for that when we go out. Overall excellent meal for.

This is a great spot for seafood in the greater Baltimore area. Really good service on our two visits and we enjoyed very good food. Oysters on the half-shell, while not for everyone are a real treat when good and fresh for those that like them. We had the Rockfish Bouillabaisse and Salmon Wellington, both of which were prepared well and very satisfying. This is an old school seafood / crab joint so decor is nice but simple - don't expect white tablecloths here! Food isn't cheap but is of high quality so I don't mind paying for it. Don't cheap out on your seafood or you will regret it! Won't hesitate to come back soon and recommend it to others.

Went there with high hopes. Had the blend of cream of crab and Maryland crab soup. It came out very watery and no crab. Waitress did offer to replace and got just the Maryland crab it must have been a different pot. It had lots of cray an vegetables. Crab legs were rubbery like they were reheated. On a positive note the shrimp salad was very good. Waitress was very good and checked in several times

We are sorry to hear that you did not fully enjoy your soup blend. We are thrilled that the Maryland Crab soup you had was wonderful, however. We can assure you that all of our food is cooked fresh when your order is placed. We hope you can come back again very soon!

Christmas Eve - overall a very disappointing experience and not up to the standards we typically experience at this great restaurant. Food was very disappointing off the special Christmas Eve menu. Wait staff was overwhelmed (perhaps too many tables) . Multiple requests for items required and then told after a very long wait for meals that they ran out of spinach (we were there at 6:00 pm.

I will chalk this up to a holiday but we will reconsider dining out here on a holiday again.

Crabs were by far the best I've ever had. All the seafood was fresh and well prepared. Soup was very tasty and had just enough spice. Initially, service was poor. Our party of 6 arrived in 2 groups of 3, so we engaged the host staff twice. Despite this, and coming down from the 2nd floor patio to ask the host staff for service, we still did not get a server for 25 mins after the first 3 of our party arrived. It made us feel like we were not a priority. We were the only party on the patio, so there was nobody we could have been mixed up with. When we finally got service, the server said no one told her we were up there, despite the 3 engagements with the host staff, so the excuse was not acceptable. That was the only time our 25 minute wait for service was acknowledged. I am a restaurant manager. I am glad I am not their manager, as I would have been forced to apply some sort of recovery for such negligence. No visit from management, so although the server was obviously aware of our excessive wait, either no mention of it was made to management, or it was mentioned to management, and they chose not to respond. Either way, it was a huge failure. We will not return. We are willing to spend a lot of money for great food, and give an establishment a shot, but all we would have wanted was acknowledgement from the leadership of the restaurant, so since we did not get that, we will not return, and we do not recommend this establishment if you want great service.

This was our first visit here after hearing about their steamed crabs - we were equally surprised to see some great house specials on the menu (halibut as an entree, tuna poke as an app) and a good selection of oysters on the half shell. So, the crabs were excellent - we got the x large as in the past jumbos just aren’t worth the extra $$ - they measure point to point, we had a few light ones and they took care of that for us. The drinks were all great, we did greyhound (fresh squeezed grapefruit and vodka) and their spicy Bloody Mary - both were excellent! For dessert we had a Nutella triangle cake that was out of this world, and baked just down the street by a local bakery called Meringue. We will be back for sure.
Definitely recommend!

I had the "Fish of the Day" and chose cod poached. Cooked perfectly, but they didn't drain the cod of the residual water which flooded my plate. The pasta with garlic butter was perfect and a lot. Brought half of it home. Spinach..eh.
My wife has the fried hard crab which she was just able to finish and was very good according to her.
The desserts were DELICIOUS!
