The crabs are a hit or miss. I ordered 2 doz x-large crabs to go today and when i got there they looked like larges. Talked to a gentleman and he said that the larges are about a half inch smaller. I took them home and they were the WORST crabs that i ever bought from there. Some of them were mushy like they were leftovers and 4-5 of them smelled bad like....... Lookin for a new reliable place :-(

This is absolutely the best crab place in baltimore. If you are not from baltimore, like sailorette...you may not understand. If you want good crabs, and are willing to pay for the quality...then you will go here. This place is absolutely best place to go. Also, the only customers who come here are willing to pay top dollar for what they are receiving. So if you are looking for a phillips, or ruby tuesdays in that matter, then this may not be your top choice. We leave our house at 4 pm to get there for the first seating. There is a 4 o'clock seating and a 7 o'clock seating, clearly if they have two seatings only its that good. Im actually blown away by the bad reviews, it just shows how cheap people are these days...they clearly arent from baltimore, or dont know what good crabs are.

My husband and I along with 13 of our friends ate there last night. It was a horrible nightmare. We were served in dribs and drabs. Some of our party were not served until everyone had finished eating. One didn't get all of her meal. She left without eating it. Her husband ordered haddock - it was so small and thin you could see right through it. And it turned out to be orange roughy. One person never got his meal. They only care about the customers who are paying $75. a dozen for crabs. For all the money that they charge - the place should look like a palace. Someone should contact the health dept. The ladies room was filthy and smelled worse. The waitress was terrible. It was the worst service we have ever had. We travel extensively and have never had a problem like this. I do not mind paying for a good meal but I will never go back there again. These people should be ashamed of themselves for even being in business.

If you are looking forward to a long wait, and a crab commander then this is the place to visit. The crabs were light and tasted like cinnamon (something I'd rather have on my dessert then crabs). The bar where we had to wait was crowded and smokey, only to find out that the crabs we wanted were already sold to his favorite customers (I guess that didn't include me).

If you love crabs this is the place for you. I love crabs and have eaten crabs all throughout MD and these are the best I have had besides steaming them myself. You must get here early or you will wait for 2 hours. Ran into some old Colt players here. Bring a designated driver because for some reason can't help but drink beer here. This is classic Baltimore ""Crabs and Beer""

I have gone to Mr. Bill's Terrace several times and can't say enough about the crabs! They are huge, well-seasoned, and heavy. It only takes about three of them to fill me up! The cream of crab soup is excellent as well. The only drawback for us is the very long wait we have encountered each time we have gone. At least an hour or more. Also, the more people you have in your party, the longer you will wait for your crabs once you have ordered them. The service can be a bit slow as well.

Consistently ranking the tops in Baltimore Magazine and City Paper, this is the place to go for outstanding crabs. A local, casual eatery with the feel of East Baltimore in Ocean City. Go and order the biggest Gulf crabs offered. All the food is homemade, a great cream of crab soup made with love by one of the waitstaff members. Boog Powell and others call this the best crab house in town. Once you visit, you won't go anywhere else for crabs, fried hard crabs, shrimp and crabcakes!
