Have a Family Crab Feast
The Baltimore crab feast is a long-held tradition in our city. Whether you have roots in Baltimore or you’re a first-time visitor, you’ll find that an authentic Baltimore crab feast is the perfect way to celebrate your family reunion in the city.
The best part of planning a crab feast - next to selecting your menu - is deciding where to have it. Choose a local Baltimore crab house and reserve a table, room or dock for your family. Most crab houses are a seafood lover’s delight, serving a host of other dishes from shrimp and scallops to lobster. A crab feast can be catered as well. Your family can have a picnic outdoors or a meal served in a private group venue. Work with a caterer or restaurant to tailor the menu to your family’s preferences.
