Faidley sells the perfect crab cakes. Their lump crab cake balls are jammed packed with real meat unlike other places that's all covered with nothing but batter. It's seriously one of the most authentic crab cakes I've ever tasted without the frills. It's cheap and delicious. However, expect to stand while you eat as there are no chairs. To die for!

Local from Baltimore, Maryland, USA

A couple of my friends recently bought Muskrat at the market and cooked it up. Apparently it tastes pretty gamey. But that's just one of the curious things for sale at Faidley's, most well-known for their crab cakes and oysters. Order a crab cake, a la carte, take it over to the oyster bar and order a National Bohemian Beer on draft and a half dozen raw oysters and you'll be set. There are so many interesting people to watch and signs from top to bottom in this authentic slice of Baltimore.

A great place to go for the quintessential Baltimore Crabcake. The venue, and the price, might make some uncomfortable. At $14, the $5 markup for the lump crabcake over the backfin crabcake is worth it.

I've eaten a lot of crab cakes in Baltimore, and I always come back to these as my favorite. Maybe it's just because they're the first I had, but they're exceptionally buttery and sweet. And the whole vibe at the market here is wonderful--you can get oysters and beer at the next-door seafood stand, and desserts inside.
