Obrycki's Report - Crabs

jfish | Mar 26, 2008 12:58 PM

My daughter has company from California and wanted crabs Monday night. Bill's was closed so we went to Obrycki's. I know Obrycki's gets tagged as a tourist place, and indeed they do well with the tourist trade, but I have never been dissapointed with their crabs. Offered at 44, 54,and 64 dollars per dozen we ordered a dozen 64s and they were big, hot, tastie and full of mustard. Only after my friend asked for lemon, having already requested cocktail sauce, butter and vinegar did the waiter assume we were tourists and ask where we are from. A little embarrassing for us Baltimore born folk.

Anyway, I think Obryki's holds up as a place to get good crabs in spite of being a little upscale and being known to tourists.
