Pappas Restaurant - Glen Burnie
Absolutely the BEST crab cake ever. I had the 10 oz version and it was pure crab meat - very little filler. It was my first time at Pappas while in Baltimore on business.
It was a sensational meal. The crab soup was great the crab cake was even better. The salad was huge and baked potato was cooked perfectly. And the price was amazingly low. Thank you Pappas.
Seated on time according to our reserved time. Nice, friendly atmosphere. Noise level was wonderful and able to carry a conversation with everyone in our party. All tables were nicely spaced for comfort of all in the area. Wait staff was helpful, attentive to our needs and friendly.
The crab cakes are as good as folks tell you. We also enjoyed the prime rib which was very good. We are definitely going back!
My Wife and I have yet to have anything less than good here. My New York Christopher (N.Y. Strip and crab imperial) was cooked exactly as the medium rare I requested. My Wife's crabcake was a good sized lump with just about no filler and quite tasty. We brought home portions as they were quite large. Our Server, Kellie, was excellent and very timely on our requests.
My one suggestion is on making sure your hostess knows if you made your reservation thru Open Table. Our Hostess was too busy trying to seat us a walk in traffic despite my telling her we booked thru Open Table. She also missed my Open Table request to sit us near an entry or exit door. I had to to get that table on my own. I had also tried to explain to her how I would get a notice from Open Door - which I did - should it appear that I did not show up for my reservation.
Great crabcakes, slow service. And it's in Glen Burnie.
King Pappas has give us another mouth full of those thick tasteful crab cakes along with some hot delightful cream crab soup to warm up your soul on any given day. Our daughter enjoyed her hot pizza with a large side of hot french fries! King Pappas show our military family with some love but we had expected that their cheesecakes would have been fresh so we thought we would getting the same flavor as well as your cold-slaw but we didn't. We shall be coming back for those crab cake, cream of crab soup, french fries, russet potato, pizza & sweet tea but as long you have that fishy warm cold-slaw & stale cheesecakes we wouldn't be ordering any of those items. Here is a suggestion, order from Coveted Cakes for cakes because that strawberry cheesecake was unacceptable!!
Our third visit. This time food took much longer and was unfortunately not hot
The crab cakes are still amazing, though.
Of the three Pappas restaurants this one is our favorite. Casual atmosphere and great food. What else could you ask for?
We have become big fans of Pappas. Usually eat there at least once every two weeks. Love the prime rib and also crab cakes and shrimp salad. We really have to try more of your menu!
I definitely would return to try more dishes. The baby back ribs were delicious 😋, tender the meat was falling off the bone.
Each of our group enjoyed the luncheon special. Of course the crab cakes were tasty but also the sides & soups were equally as good. We were truly impressed with our waitress. She was quick & efficient. Worth a 22% tip.
The service was spot on,the waitress was very helpful with the menu. I will be back,next time I will try the lasagna..
best crab cake in Baltimore varied menu daily specials especially WED Crab Cakes
The waiter had too many tables to serve causing him to forget things we ordered
The food was excellent. We ordered two crabcake platters and the portion size was spot on. The old bay wings were fried and seasoned to perfection. My husband said that the Pappas paleale was delicious. It had hints of citrus with no after taste and paired well with his meal. Are server was very polite and we could tell she had plenty experience providing customer service. It is definitely a sports bar setting so if you are looking for great food, plenty of laughs and good beer we would recommend a visit.
The crab cake was very large and had the most crab meat I've ever seen!
I had an excellent, well priced meal at Pappas. I am not a fan of their crab cakes so I tried the rainbow trout. I didn't want it blackened and after some hiccups with the server, I got a lovely, boned trout that was cook perfectly.
I try it again.
Our waitress was excellent. I wish I knew her name. On the younger side. Crab cake was delicious.
This was my second time there and it was Great. Our waitress was awesome and the food was great. Would go back in a second.
A party of 3, ages 21; 61 & 88, all got the crab cake platter & loved it! Fast & good service made it a perfect evening.
Excellent ambiance for a night with family and great food.
Crab cake as good as G&M. Environment more like a restaurant than a bid eating hall.
Delicious crab cake platter with succotash and a salad - all in our part of 3 had the same but with different sides. Special berry colada. Olivia was a very attentive waitress!
Food was excellent. Crab cakes were full of large clumps of crab meat. Delicious!!
FLAVORFUL, fantastic, delicious, meaty, low filler crab cakes! Great friendly service! Casual atmosphere. Cold crisp and ample side salads with plenty of dressing on the side. Good selection of other sides. Stop eating big tasteless crab cakes and come to Pappas - Two (2) locations! Nice selection of other foods but I only have eaten the crab cakes. Cream of crab soup has been a little too thick at times but you can easily remedy that by thinning it down with a little cup of sherry. Yum.
Great food, great service, great prices
Great service and solid crab cake. You certainly can feel satisfied after eating there.
Not at all what I thought based on reviews I’ve read. The place wasn’t the cleanest. The bathroom was disgusting. We ordered crab nachos and calamari for an appetizer and they were both mediocre. Actually the calamari was a step below. It was a little salty and and I’ve never seen rings so small. The kids pizza looked like a Banquet frozen deep dish,and the fish and chips my son did enjoy. I had the crab cake which was good but the fries were tough and dry. However the lump crab was delicious. I could have eaten another but i could get a good crab cake elsewhere so it’s definitely not worth going back to Pappas for.
Go here once a week and never had such an experience. Ordered a bottle of wine but got the wrong one. Only one of the two of us got our meal and that was wrong. Waited ten minutes for my dinner but it never came. Finally had to cancel it. No explanation was given. Left to sit there without a meal while my companion ate theirs.
Great food, good value and quick and pleasant service
Disappointed that the rock fish special was unavailable although clearly listed on the specials menu. This was an early dinner (5:00pm), so can't understand why they would run out of the fish so early,
We enjoyed Pappas while celebrating a dear friend's birthday. It was surprisingly quiet and the noise level was pretty tolerable. I figured everyone had been there for Fathers Day the day before. Food quality was good but the rainbow trout was a bit too crispy and the rockfish portions a bit small. Salmon looked fantastic. Unfortunately our server disappeared mid meal but the rest of the wait staff stepped in. Not sure if it is your policy to recognize birthdays but if you do, it got lost in the transition of servers- so that was a bit disappointing.
Maybe next time you will get all the stars in the rating.
Pappas is committed to serving you the best way possible. Some of the best food I've ever had in the dmv area!!! There was not one impolite staff member onsite and the restaurant had a unique atmosphere.
The restaurant had trouble finding my reservation and tried to tell me I had to wait 45 min to an hour, even after showing them my confirmation on my phone. Finally another hostess came over and told the one trying to help me that she was looking at the dinner and not the lunch list. Our table was ready and we were seated immediately. The server was prompt to get our drinks and order but not available during our meal. Food was delicious. Maybe need to try again another day.
Was told the crab cakes were one of the best in Maryland. They are not. Too much filler.
It's expensive but it was worth it food are delicious...
While there was plenty of jumbo lump crab in the cake, the taste was lacking. If you want a good crab cake, go to Oregon Ridge Grill or the Severn Inn. Cream of crab soup had more flavor, but was too thick and needed sherry. Avoid wine list and cocktails. Staff was courteous and service was good, but rushed.
Mothers day reservation. Place was slammed. Food & drinks were still superb. Hats off to the kitchen & bar staff!
We had reservations and we were seated right away. Our server was pleasant and professional. The food was Great! I had the Crab Cakes! "I'll be back "
