Mini Crab Cakes
Five of our Famous Crab Cakes, just a smaller version
Crab Cake Sandwich
Our 8 oz. crab cake served on a fresh brioche roll with lettuce and tomato, with a side of French fries
Colossal lump crab meat blended in our secret crabcake recipe, topped with Imperial sauce and baked until golden brown
Excellent meal & service!
Server was very personal and attentive to our needs.
Food as usual was very good as the three of us had crab cakes. Favorite place to go for a crab cake. I always order the double so to have one to take home.
Server even explained the nice looking renovations that has taken place.
The food of course was delicious. My only complaint is we were seated by the fireplace and it was on! May 12 was a warm day and a fireplace was not needed. I asked if they could turn the fireplace off because it was too warm and they refused. The owner wants it on. They didn’t care if it was too warm, the owner had to be happy. Shame on you Pappas!
Something was a little different about the crab imperial this time...not as impressive as past visits...other than that all else was good as usual👍🏼👍🏼
Food was very good, sides portions we're small, still hungry when we left. Had asked for seating near fireplace, they sat us at a table where our shoulders we're against the wall, but we were reseated after asking. Were told that someone had tried calling several times that our reservations were incorrect and we had to hurry up and order or not have dinner. No one had called according to my phone or left any messages. I received one call a couple days prior to confirm the reservation, but not to reschedule or cancel. Had 1 half glass of wine, bill was $80 for two meals no dessert.
I knew there would be a set menu and I was already prepared for that, however, the meal I chose is something I eat from there often which is the stuffed shrimp which generally goes for $21.99 but was $30 and the amount of crabmeat was lacking and that really was disappointing. The service was busy and typical and the restaurant was comfortable.
We were a little disappointed at the limited menu since we not advised prior to making the reservation.
It's a great place to eat we go there for both dine in and carryout, always good food, service is good, parking on grounds is good, Mother's day was great for my wife and moms
Went for Mother’s Day but there were no spaces to park. It was very crowded. Even with reservations while some members were attempting to park the vehicle were not able to be be seated until the entire party arrived. Waitress was good but slow took too long to order and when we asked for a regular menu to order from they had a special menu made for Mother’s Day and you could not order from the regular menu.
The Mother’s Day menu was a little on the more pricey side but I understand as businesses are trying to catch up because of the Covid pandemic.
It was just ok.
Overall the food was good; our waitress was okay. I'm not sure how the tips get divided between the waitress and the servers but my opinion the servers worked a lot harder than our waitress; she only took our order and never came back except to give us the bill. I had a party of six and the tip was added in with our bill and when we asked to have three separate bills we were told that a party of six or more goes on one bill; unfortunately two of the couples were from out of town and had to leave the restaurant to find an ATM because we were told that she could only use one credit card and cash or all cash or all credit but could not use three credit cards to pay the bill. I'm not sure if we are going to be returning to your establishment in the future; just wasn't the best experience for me and my out of town guests.
Meal was wonderful. Piping hot crab cakes and French fries. Delicious!!!!! Plus 1/2 price bottle of wine!!!
One of my favorite places always great. Wonderful Crab Cakes.
We have been having a meal there for many years to celebrate my birthday and Mothers Day. They have the best oysters
Omg the 🦀 egg rolls 😍 was to die for. My 11 year old daughter said she enjoyed her self. Thank everyone who helped from start to the end. Keep up the excellent job well done.
If you are looking for consistency, look no further. These are the crab cakes you are looking for...and everything else is well prepared and tasty too.
Amazing customer service and the food was even better!
Front Door greeting was very welcoming. We had the perfect dining room seating. The food, oh boy the food, was absolutely delicious! Samantha is now our Host Extraordinaire. The Crab Cakes surpass any that I've previously had to date. DR. said her Fish topped with Crab Imperial was scrumptious, and Mr. G, said the Pork Chops were perfectly seasoned and fork tender. They both enjoyed Bartender Perfection Drinks and my Ice Tea was just the right amount of sugar sweet. I love Green Beans and they were al dante and flavorful. The Sweet Potato Fries and Split Baked Potato were made fresh and cooked to perfection as well. The Staff performed like a Grand Ole Orgastra. I had not seen such fine coordination to make the guest feel so welcome, as my 5 Star restaurant in NY. PAPPAS was well worth the 1 hour plus drive, and when we come again, we want Samantha, the center booth along the first wall and more of the same delicious everything. I simply wish more of the customers were dressed properly, it was pretty shameful how many don't take time out to groom themselves for this wonderful dining experience. PAPPAS STAFF, 5 Stars 🌟 for a fantastic evening!
Great food and service. Would recommend while in Baltimore. Amazing crab cakes.
Service was horrible. The bus boys stated, "they were backed up in the kitchen." We had to ask 2-3 times for bread, and many times for water. The waitress would disappear for extended periods of time. We will not go back.
Dinner was fantastic as usual. Service was just okay. Our waitress wasn’t that good. We still had a very nice time and enjoyed our food. Will keep coming back as always.
Seafood platter was good crabcake could have used a little more seasoning.
Best crabcakes in Maryland no lie!!!!! So much food!
Last minute plans to head to Pappas. My friend and I ordered from the daily specials menu. She said her rockfish was excellent. My soft crab was very tough. Service was somewhat slow; which is not what I’m used to there. I chalked it up to an off night. It’s still one of my favorite places to eat.
We tried to get a seat at the Cockeysville restaurant but they were full. Parkville is our favorite though, we come here a few times a year and always on New Year's Eve. We were celebrating the 50th Anniversary of our first date 1971. I understand Pappas will be celebrating 50 next year. We always have a good time at both restaurants with famil and friends, ALWAYS!!!
Thank you so much for sharing your kind review and feedback with us. We certainly cannot wait to serve you again soon!
The crab cakes were not the same as I always got there. No jumbo lump like before. When I told the manager she said we cannot get jumbo lump right now. No apologies or compensation. We should have been told so we had the option of ordering something different... very disappointed.
One of the things missed most during pandemic was eating at Pappas. You can never go wrong. the food and service is always outstanding.
Come back soon to see us! Thank you so much!
Great ambience, great service, always good food prepared and served as ordered.
A delightful experience from start to finish. My sister and I were celebrating our birthdays with two other family members, and we felt right at home.
Thank you so very much and come back soon!
Always a good experience. New renovation is nice. Friendly atmosphere and still the world's best crab cakes!
We sure hope you will come back to see us soon!
Did a wonderful job on the remodeling! While the vegetables, wine and service were outstanding, I was a little disappointed in the crab cake. While the lumps were still there, I found the cake a little dry. Also, one of my dinner companions was told that rolls were not available for lunch, which I found odd.
Thank you so much, Barb!
It was great!!!
Always enjoy myself with my family at Pappas. Keep up the good work.
We cannot wait to see you back. Thank you kindly!
The best crab cake in town. You must try it! it will become a favorite for you too.
Thank you so much, Lisa!
Pappas Restaurant in Parkville MD has always made our family's list of top five dining venues for going on five generations. Sadly my grandparents and parents have passed but the Baltimore bloodline is still there! Maryland Blue Crabs have a special sweetness. Just like the love the chef puts into the dish. Great variety to choose from and each choice is so satisfying there are new favorites discovered.
We absolutely love the remodel. The staff is the best as always. Our server, Walter, was excellent. Very attentive without being interruptive. Pleasant and had no problem with special requests. My husband and I live in Annapolis, our son and family live near Parkville and my sister is in Cockeysville. What a comfort it is go back to PAPPAS-Parkville for our family gatherings. It's a proven Olde Tradition in our "New World". Thank you Pappas' Family for that sense of stability and comfort.
First time eating but definitely not the last. Food was amazing.
Can't wait to see you back with us soon!
Crab cakes were delicious and Rachel and staff were very helpful. We’ll be back soon! 😎
Thank you so much, Pops! We love to hear this. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Everything was great. Can’t wait to go back! Crab cakes are the best.
Thank you kindly, Susan!
Papas is one of our favorite restaurants however my wife really wasn't happy with the imperial crab it wasn't as creamy as it usually is. The imperial crab is why we came.
The scallops were delicious and the seafood club was also good.
Both of the ladies got the imperial crab and both said that it has been much better. They were disappointed.
We will definitely be back and perhaps the imperial crab will be up to par.
We are so very sorry to hear this. We can assure you that this is certainly not the norm and we will look into this right away. We do hope you will come back again.
It was a good place to celebrate a birthday.
Your kind review means so much to us. Come back soon!
Staff was very nice and friendly.
Food was delicious and hot.
We cannot wait to have you back! Thank you so much!
Best crab cakes EVER!! Outstanding service in the bar area!
We just love to hear this! Thank you so much!
