Stoney's - was I expecting too much of its crabcake?

Lori S | Oct 10, 2001 12:32 PM

Spent my Columbus Day in Calvert County. Flag Ponds S.P. was closed unfortunately, so I combed the sands of Brownie Beach near Chesapeake Beach for sharks teeth.

I went to Stoney's on Rte 4 in Prince Frederick for lunch at 12:30. I greatly looked forward to the crabcakes, although at first I wanted to smash & eat a 1/2 dozen steamed crabs & was told they had none (tho down at a nearby roadside vendor there were crabs). I had a bowl of average crab soup ($4.95), a dozen crisp hush puppies ($3.50), & the small (4 oz) crabcake "ball" at $10.95. I guess I was expecting a better taste to it. I've had just as good at Cantler's near Annapolis (with a nicer waterside setting) & that place near BWI & Ft Meade - I forget the name. I keep reading & hearing how the crabcakes at Stoney's are supposed to be the very best in the DC-Baltimore area. The cake was fine but not stellar. And service was too slow for a 1/2-empty restaurant. I'll go back to Cantler's instead...
