Crabs in Baltimore - HELP!

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be in Baltimore this weekend just for one night and I have been craving crabs for months. My Dad grew up on the Bay and I just miss visiting Grandma and having my mallet, newspaper on the table, Old Bay, butter and just plain great crabs.

So, with that said I need your help. I have scoured the boards, reviews, postings - anything I can find to point me in the right direction. So far the top three seem to be Bo Brooks, Bill's Terrace and Costas. I've seen so many mixed reviews for all three that I just can't pull the trigger. Here's the catch (no pun intended) - I'm going with a friend that has never picked crabs before and I want to make sure that the first experience is really great.

We'll be staying in Inner Harbor, but I don't mind driving for good crabs - no too far, but if it's really that good I'll make the trip. We're going to the O's game Saturday night, hang around town for a better part of the day Sunday and then the long drive back.

Thanks in advance for the help - I really, truly appreciate it.
