My husband and I jut got back from our first and last time there. The oyster stew had little bits of oysters in it and was tasteless. Our main courses, seafood pasta and shrimp scampi over pasta came to us cold and had to be sent back. The seafood pasta had one shrimp, a small piece of lobster and a little bit of crab. The alfredo sauce cannot be described as it can't possibly be alfredo sauce. It was terrible. My husband said his scampi was mediocre. The garlic bread was cold, stale and awful.On the plus side, our waitress was wonderful and the beer was cold.Would not waste money going there.

The name speaks for itself, crackpot. This place is and always will be horrible. Not suitable for a dog. Horrific service and unequaled in the fact the food is sub par. Next time you think of going here, slid eon over to the Double TT.

I went to the Crackpot with my family for my dad's birthday on the Fourth of July. We called ahead and reserved a table and a dozen crabs. When we got there, they sat us right away, but they didn't have the paper for the crabs on the table yet. They came and put the paper on the table right away though. I got the Cream of Crab Soup. It was really really good. It had a lot of crab in it and had crab and Old Bay on the top. My mom got the Scallops, which she says were "astoundingly good." My brother got the mussels and he had never had them before and he loved them, but my mom and dad who have had them said they were very good also. My dad got the Maryland Crab Cake. He is a crab cake lover and he is very picky about his crab cakes, but he loved the Crackpot's crab cake. The crabs we got were very hot, and they had a ton of seasoning on them (just like they're supposed to) and were heavy. Service was good, and were are definitely going to go back soon. I would recommend this to Maryland seafood lovers.

Visited first (and only) time in June 2007 - service slow; food so-so; chicken overcooked and dry; medium well steak was overcooked and dry too; cream of crab soup was pretty good; overall this place is overpriced and over-hyped

They provide fresh seafood, steamed crabs, salads in very nice to go area below the restaurant.... Memorial weekend I needed some fresh crabmeat for some of my almost famous homemade crabcakes..so I purchase a pound of LUMP at $20.00 they also offered jumbo lump for $26.00... when I got it home and opened it the top was all lump, But the rest was backfin or even special! I was very unhappy! If they are going to specialize in seafood they have got to do better than that... we have some local food markets that have better crab meat. Also the crabmeat was not as fresh as you would expect from a seafood market. Hope it gets better!

I recently went to the Crackpot with three other adults and we all loved it. While at first glance the prices might seem a little high it is worth it for the great seafood that we received. I had the Italian crab cakes and they were amazing. The service was also good. One waitress from another table asked us if we needed help when she overheard us discussing a couple different of the menu options. You must try this Restaurant.

First-time visit for two adults on 10/28/06. Service was slow and unorganized. Vegetable crab soup was overcooked with few pieces of crabmeat sprinkled on top. Salmon was not fresh, unremarkable in taste, and covered with awful-tasting "lobster sauce." Crabcake was fair. Rice was bland and dry. Broccoli was tough, cold and unseasoned. Waited an hour for food even though dining room was half empty. Other patrons were heard complaining of long wait times for meals. Overall service was mediocre and quality of food disappointing. Owner/management unresponsive to written feedback. Not a good value. Not recommended.
