There’s nothing quite like eating seafood within full view of the water. The laid-back riverside seating at Bay Crawlers Crab Shack affords you that distinct pleasure. With picnic tables (some shaded) nestled along the rocky shores of the Northeast River, Bay Crawlers Crab Shack promises seafood with a view near your apartment in Maryland.
True to its name, the freshly caught crabs are really the main event at this self-proclaimed “shack.” Order the all-you-can-eat crabs, corn, and hush puppies if you have a ravenous appetite for crustaceans, or enjoy crabs by the dozen, ordering a few ears of sweet local corn as you go. Craving shrimp, littleneck clams, or crawfish? Bay Crawlers has these types of seafood in stock, too, not to mention fried oysters, clam strips, and fresh crab cakes. And you can always add tasty extras such as rockfish bites, boardwalk fries, or even some of the hot crab dip to the mix! If you sit down at the eatery, try one of the many signature cocktails—perhaps the Grapefruit Crush—or grab a bucket of beer to share with friends.
