    You'll be shocked. The old place was gutted. G&M had a multi-million dollar makeover. I was there last week: same old monster 8 oz crabcake with quality meat, but still fairly bland for my tastes. I prefer more traditional Maryland crabcake recipes -- smaller, browner coating, spicier. That's why I go to Eastern Shore. It's hard to find traditional Maryland crabcakes in a good restaurant Annapolis or even Baltimore anymore. There are a few spots locally, but my wife won't get out of the car to go inside.

    I recently as scanning old family stuff and came across the menu at my Dad's restaurant in the 1960's. Hamburger was 35 cents, and crabcake was 25 cents. How times have changed!

    Re: A few questions from a Texan

    Phillips in Harbor Place has always had a
    great seafood platter with crab cake, shrimp,
    fish, oysters, claims and crab imperil.

    It was about $30. GMs is big but had too
    much stuffing for me. I pulled out a half
    slice of bread the last time I was there.

    Box Hill Pizzeria and Tamberino's in Bel Air
    have the best crab cakes for my tastes
    but they're way out in the sticks from
    downtown.

    You gotta try Phillips in the Harbor if they're
    open and just a short walk. Visit the
    Acquarian too.

    Re: A few questions from a Texan

    Coming from Texas I know you're into beef,
    so if you're here a couple of days drive out
    to the Corner Stable on York Rd in Towson
    for best spare ribs and crab cake platter you'll ever
    taste. None of those baby back ribs either. They're huge.

    Good shrimp too for appetizer.


    Here's a map, only about 25 mins from
    down town in non-rush hour traffic. Take Rt 83 straight out from
    down town.

    I agree. i worked there at one time and they use a lot of filler in the Crab Cakes and they are very dirty in the back of house. I wont eat there.

    I'm in the mood for a good crab cake platter... Perhaps I'll give G&M a try since driving way down to the Eastern Shore is about as likely as Vonta Leach winning the rushing title next season.

    UNLEASH THE BEASTS!!!!

    Believe it or not, Bill Bateman's has very good crabcakes...I'd rather go up the street from G&M's to Olive Grove for crabcakes...Much tastier...

    Definitely hit G&Ms, I used to work at a plastics plant about 5 minutes from there. Little grove deli (across street from G&Ms) has bigger cakes and sometimes better, but for consistency and seating go G&Ms.

    Hah beat me to it while I was typing it. The deli is awesome for crabcakes imo, but the restaurant has been hit or miss.

    G&M cakes have too much filler for me (last time I was there ~ 1 year ago. I prefer Faidleys in Lexington Market....not too far North on Paca from the stadium area(s)

    Re: A few questions from a Texan

    Your seats are high up, but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. There isn't a bad seat at all.

    Enjoy the game. There isn't really a bad place to get a crab cake, just some are better than others. Oh, and don't wonder too far west from the stadium.

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned Faidleys until now. Very close to the stadium, but they're closed on Sundays.

    Oh yea, Fraidleys is really good. The Lexington Market is a must for lunch one day, a short walk in down town. They have lots of stands of food.

    Get some oysters and shuck them down too before getting the crab cakes. Just ask someone. The Lexington Market is a Bmore Landmark.

    The guy who started GMs used to work for the original owners of Box Hill Pizzaria in Abingdon. It used to be
    The Red Fox on Main Street in Bel Air which is now the
    Tower.

    The two brothers retired and turned it over to the sons and moved it to Abingdon.

    One of the chefs moved and started GM and took the receipe with him but got it from the original Red Fox
    in Bel Air.

    Crab Cakes have to have some stuffing in it to hold
    it together but not a slice of bread like I got.
