In light of all the above bad reviews let me add the following: It is true that the crabcakes at G&M are decent but should you have a problem at the restaurant expect the management to be belligerent and unwilling to assume any

Beware! I visited this restaurant with my in laws 2 years ago upon my visit from LasVegas. The service was mediocre although the crab cakes were great. My mother in law wanted to surprise my husband this year for Father's Day. My husband is a native of Baltimore and has lived in Vegas for several years now. He frequented this restaurant with his family consistently for 20 years prior to his moving. My Mother in law and I came up with a phenomenal plan, she purchased the crab cakes and had them shipped to us in Vegas directly from G & M. Unfortunately the arrived spoiled. They had a pungent seafood smell, I was concerned although my husband assured me that it was the mixture and we would be fine. I cooked the crab cakes as directed although they would not cook thoroughly so I added a few minutes pulled them out again and they were not cooked throughout, I proceeded to add a few more minutes to be safe. They came out golden brown and I supposed they were ready to eat. They were awful we could not get through 1/2 of the crab cake. Needless to say we became extremely ill with food poisoning for three days. My Mother in law and I phoned the Managers. I personally spoke with the GM George. He called me a liar and proceeded to tell me it was my stove. I have a chefs kitchen and cook on an everyday basis. So therefore GEORGE no! it was not my stove. I proceeded to tell him how ill we had all become and George proceeded to tell me that if his crab cakes made me ill he did not want me as customer and hung up on me twice. I will never recommend this restaurant again. He is a disgusting human being with zero customer service. If your family member has moved and you think they would enjoy a little taste of Baltimore's famous crab cakes, think twice before you consider G & M. Needless to say Father's Day was a bust due to us being so ill. By far the worst customer service I ever experienced!

I planned on taking my family to G&M for Crabcakes because my son who is in the Army was being sent overseas. Because we had a large group we attemted to make reservations but they refused and recommend call ahead. We called ahead 1/2

BEWARE: last night took my wife to G and M's for the first time, just got back from a trip to San Antonio. Parked across the street, since there was no parking on the G&M lot, no business's were open, except a tiny liquor store, lot was not crowded at all. Saw signs on G&M doors about towing across the street. BY the TIME I turned around, and went back (less than 1 minute), they had my car up on the tow truck, ready to tow. Cost me 150.00 dollars, I was so mad I almost punched the tow truck driver. SO G&M did not get any money from us, we left, and I had to pay the Tow guy 150.00 or they would tow me away, then it would of cost me 300.00. SCAM. G&M should have someone across the street on busy nights, they play a part in this. I will pursue further, with TV news stations, etc. NOT GOOD FOR BUSINESS.

Didn't even get to eat here. Its a huge SCAM. Beware. DO NOT PARK ACROSS THE STREET. There are no signs that say no parking across the street, the lot at this restraunt is always full. I parked across the street to see where I should park, and there is even a sign on the front door of G&M that says don't park across the street, when I went to move my car, it was already being towed! I had to pay $150 to prevent the car from being impounded. There were five other people getting towed at the same time. Apparently they wait to see if someone parks in their lot, and then when they cross the street, they pull out tow trucks from behind the building. Huge SCAM. I called G&M and they said they were aware of this. 7 other people from the Hilton Hotel also had this happen the same night as me. NO THANKS.

We went to G&M at the instance of some out of town guests for the "crab cakes"! Frankly the fiasco with no parking in their lot and the fact that one of the people in our party had his vehicle towed while he went in to find out where he actually could park is infuriating. The tow cost him $300 and there was a line of people trying to recover their vehicles that had been towed from the exact same area one after another . Most of them had stopped for a minute to find out where the closest parking was located. G&M would serve their clientel better if they made a deal with the lot and let them charge the cars vs. towing and fining them the bsuiness were slosed at night anyway. Some of the people in line were scrounging for the $300 cash needed although conveniently there is an ATM right there.
Never again!

We've been to G & M twice in the past 2 months...before that it had been several years. The restaurant has been enlarged and is quite beautiful inside. Most importantly, the crab cakes are still wonderful...large mounds of backfin crabmeat and seasoned to perfection. The cream of crab soup is also quite good...but forget the clams casino...they were the worst!

G & M...PARKING IS SO FRUSTRATING...NOT WORTH IT!

If you park across the street at the shopping center with the Liquor Store and Deli you will get towed! I was parked on the side of the building and got towed.

Crabcake was ok...cream of crab very good. Expensive night!

Mixed review. I live nearby so I have eaten here several times. The servers, bartenders, carryout staff and managment are usually rude and unprofessional., even to repeat customers who tip. They act like they are doing you a favor taking your order and serving you. Don't expect a thank you or smile. Side salad are really bad. The lettus is almost always brownish. Today's carryout crab cake was precooked, dry and only slighly warm. Fries were cold. Really disappointing. Still ....every now and then you get a nice suprise when the food is freshly cooked. Prices are resonable. So if you are looking for huge portions, cheap and can get past the rude service ...give it a try. Too bad the ownership can't see that with a few adjustments to service and food quality control this could be a better than average place. The take out cook at home crab cakes are a good option to minimize your exposure to the rude staff.

You want to hire illegals, that's your biz, but it's always nice to at least make sure that they understand a couple of words of English like , bacteria, food born illness, sanitize and maybe even HACCP. I used to deliver to them and saw way more than I wanted. Hispanic washing lettuce in a triple sink with a bin of raw chicken sitting on the same drain board. Bins of crab meat, without any ice or lid, sitting on top of garbage cans that contained garbage, (they were making crab cakes out of those bins). Once saw lettuce guy make a wee wee in the floor drain of the sink where he was washing veggies. Went right back to work. Back door was usually wide open and flies were on everything.

Pros: Sites like this might warn people away

Cons: Sanitation is a totally "foreign" concept

Crabcakes appeared/tasted to be a couple of days old and re-heated...not freshly made. Had quite a bit of filler--much different than a year ago!! Staff inattentive to customers and more attentive to each other. After dropping a tray of plates which shattered on a nearby diner, the individual who dropped the plates never bothered to ensure customer was ok...took other staff quite some time to respond...just not nice. Will not be returning.

These are considered the best crab cakes? Not in my book. The waitstaff was friendly but not attentive (had to ask for every refill... shouldn't we have had bread with our meal?). Although the Cream of Crab soup was superb, the crab cakes were NOT the greatest... relied too heavily on Old Bay seasoning and mustard which masked the flavor of the excellent quality of crab. I was NOT impressed. Very packed house, but not worth the wait.

The crab cakes are good, but that's where it ends for G & M. The service is pretentious, with wait staff wearing tuxedo-like uniforms, and they are very uppity. But besides all that, last time I ate there, I ordered the Prime Rib, medium. Now, I can eat a rare steak, but it came out so bloody that it was still chilled in the middle. I sent it back, and it came back just like it was. I sent it back once more, and it came back still very red, but at least warm in the middle. I ate it, and I got food poisoning. I was sick for 3 days. I won't be going back.

The food at G & M is good, but I will not be returning. I have been patronizing this restaurant for 30 years. Recently, I made a complaint. On three separate occasions when I picked up my carry out order, I waited for 15 minutes only to find out my order was sitting on the shelf for those 15 minutes. When I made a complaint, the owner/manager offered this advise "There's plenty of other places you can go to". I found this to be extremely rude. But he did not care, because the restaurant is usually packed and business is booming. They know they have the business, so they don't mind losing mine. That is not my idea of a "good" restaurant.

G&M is always packed. Why? They offer enormous portions for moderate prices. The servers know what they're doing, and people keep coming back for more. The crab cakes, which is what G&M is known for, are the size of softballs and are all lump meat. The crab cakes can be ordered online and shipped all over the country.

G&M's is great for lunch. Their crab cake sandwiches are top notch and many think they are the best in Maryland. The Reuben is also outstanding. They are crowded most weekdays with the work lunch crowds so you may have to wait a little or get there before 12:00 to beat the crowds.

For great crab cakes, even by Maryland standards, you won't miss here. All the seafood is terrific. Great salad--all you can eat. Prices are fair. Service is good. All in all, you can't miss if you like good seafood.

G & M has some of the best seafood in town. And that's saying a lot for Baltimore. The crab cakes are all lump with no filler. The shrimp salad is absolutely delicious. The portions are big and the prices are not. Great place for dining in or carry out.

The worst experince in dinning is one were you can't even get fed. We had to wait just a couple minutes to put a couple tables together for 5 of us, but that was the last we saw of any service. After some time we went to the bar to get our own drinks (sodas, water etc). Wait staff, hostesses, and even the manager passed us several times, but we were never even offered menus. When we finally finished our drinks we got up to leave and request a word with the manager. He proceeded to tell me about his staffing problems and other excuses that have nothing to do with us . We won't go back.

After finally getting the order, I was disappointed with the fish and shrimp. Both were obviously shipped-in frozen and cooked on-site. I had asked if the shrimp were freshly breaded there, and was told yes. They were not. The fish was square, possibly borrowed from McDonald's. I have gotten better seafood from the frozen aisle in the grocery store. The pizza was great though! Would go back for the pizza! Still searching for good seafood....

If you want fancy ... forget it. If you want field greens or ramaine salad with homemade dressing... forget it. If you came for the crabcake.. You came to the right place. Now its not fancy or spicy it's just plain lump crabmeat at a decent price which works for me period

We went to try their crab cakes..it was awful.

Everything was cheap and shubby.
Their salad looked like it came from a salad bag from a local super market, and so was salad dressing. It tasted like store bought dressing.

We ordered crabcake platters. Their crabcakes were not so great. It reminded me of McDonald's fileo fish. It was big and nice portion though, but there was nothing special about it.

The vegetable side dish looked like frozen vegetables and tasted like it too.

Overall, it was a bad experience. I just don't understand at all why people highly recommend this place. This is a below average restaurant and I would NOT go back.

I just took my mom and dad to eat here to celebrate Mother's Day and had the best seafood meal I've had in ages!! The portions are huge and delicious so indulge!!! Please don't come here without trying the scrumptious crabcakes or something stuffed with crab!! The crabmeat is lump, seasoned perfectly and they give you tons of it! Here's what we had and I'll recommend it over and over: Stuffed oysters (6 huge babies--three can eat off of this!), Chicken chesapeake-two succulent grilled chicken breasts topped with huge mounds of lump crabmeat and grilled pork chops-they give you so many, you won't eat them all!! Enjoy!
