NOT FRESH and would not refund!!
Nov 16, 2013 by: val35 from Baltimore
We order crabs from Al's from time to time. My husband ordered 2 dozen $1 crabs from there tonight. Al's is on the way home from us but many other places in the area have $1 crabs as well. So anyway, the crabs tasted like ammonia. I used to work for a crab place and these crabs were not fresh at all. None of us liked them. I have heard before that their crabs did not taste that fresh but we never had a problem before until today. I called and told the guy there about it and he would not do a refund and said they came from North Carolina. I was in North Carolina not to long ago and they did not taste like ammonia. Ammonia taste is un fresh reheated old crabs. So he was a bunch of bull. Too bad he didn't know I blog and leave reviews. I will also NEVER order from them AGAIN and spread the word!
Nice place for some crab

I don't like crab. But apparently this place did the crabs justice. I'm sure that if they knew their demise- they would prefer to be tasty and to come here to be enjoyed. The rest of the family devoured the crabs. Snow crabs, blue crabs. They didn't care for the Old Bay, and asked for a bowl of water to scrub it off. Some like old bay, some don't. See if you can get crabs without if possible. The clam chowder was very good. We would definitely return.
Good crab cakes

This place will always be a favorite of mine! in the early 90's I was was sitting on the hood of my uncles car waiting for order to be done, When a customer leaving is approached by a guy who's mad because he was looking at his girlfriend, A scuffle happens and the poor guy was pushed breaking the front window of the place.
Good Meaty crabs

Looking for meaty crabs and I wasn't disappointed . I usually eat 1 dozen crabs in Florida but I only ate six at Al's because they were so meaty and good! The prices were average. I would go back.

Went to Baltimore the end of March and was recommended Al's Seafood restaurant for veriidy of food. Some in the group did not like seafood, others wanted to experience the steamed crabs you go to Maryland for. The food was good, service was good. All in all good food, good time.
