We are in Baltimore for a few days and I just got off the phone with the owner of Faidley's after having some extremely mediocre lump crabcakes from there. Tasted like they were laced with filler, nothing like the quality of what we've enjoyed there in the past. His end of the conversation was laced with attitude-- "my wife makes the crabcakes, we use no filler, just saltines as a binder, what exactly are you looking for, sorry you were disappointed, g'bye."
Could have been a bad batch. I guess, But has anyone else experienced a slip in the quality of their product lately?
