Went here this past Saturday night with a group of friends and had a great time! Roger Ripple and crew are doing a great job! The atmosphere was wonderful (we sat in the "alley" breezeway) and very comfortable. My drink is the Malibu Bay Breeze and I try it everywhere I go - this by far was the best one I'd ever had! The Crab Dip was delicious, however a more generous portion would've been nice. There was enough for 1 or 2 people, but that was it. The Scallops in rum and pineapple were absolutely delicious! I'm still craving them and determined to figure out how to make them at home! The Crab Bisque wasn't the best or worst that I've ever had. It definitely could've used more crab meat and for such a big bowl, oyster crackers or some kind of saltines would've been nice. The Margaritas were made tableside and my husband fell in love w/ them. Overall this is a great place for a night out and we will definitely be back!
Not only are the crabs always good. The service is always impeccable. The staff is nice and treat you like you are a part of the family. It's best to call your order in advance because they make them to order, so their always hot. I have never needed to return any crabs for any reason. They're pretty much open all year long, but i hate the small breaks they take off here or there, because nothing else compares.
I have been going to Gaffney's for probably 25 years now. I find they have the best crabs around Baltimore. Sure, you have to call in and wait for your order. But that is because they are "steamed to order". The crabs are consistently full, hot and have a great flavor. They taste the same whenever I've gotten them over the last 25 years! Awesome!
