    Its a walk from the harbor, but you can visit Edgar Allen Poe's grave site along the way. Come here for the crab cake, a contender in Travel Channel's "Best Sandwich in America"

    Awesome food, must try. Love standing table atmosphere - a lot of energy. Connected to Lexington Market. For fans of the show The Wire, many scenes filmed in and around the market.

    Tried a jumbo lump and a backfin, both incredible crab cakes, but the backfin reminds me more of crackin crabs in childhood. Incredible spot in a classic environment (Lexington Market)

    This may be the best crab cake I've ever had! After I finished my lunch platter I went back and bought three more crab cakes to go!

    Make sure to save room for some fresh oysters after you have their lump crabcake, super fresh and dripping with brine.

    Try the Jumbo Lump Crabcake - #AFPeeps #AFPFC Faidley's "Best Crab Cake" in Baltimore. It was as big as a tennis ball @johndawe @LEAmerman @ligiafpena @aliceferris @GoalBustersJim (via @Foodspotting)

    As a million people have noted previously, the jumbo lump crab cake is surreal, it's brilliant. I thought one wouldn't be enough, but it's sooooo rich and delicious!

    It's so good to be back East and have some proper Crab Cakes And She-Crab soup. Both were very good and made my day.

    They are known for the best crab cakes in Maryland. I can’t ever eat a soft shell crab sandwich anywhere else without comparing it to Faidley’s. Read more

    These chunky crab cakes were the best I ever had; they looked like huge meatballs. The big lumps of crabmeat were held together by minimal amounts of condiments, and were deliciously sweet.

    The All Lump Crab cake is the real deal, get it on a kaiser roll with a Natty Boh for a true Baltimore experience.

    The lump crab cake is worth an earlier train from New York. And the oysters - often overlooked - are fat and super fresh.

    Best crabcakes you'll ever have. Spring for the lump crabcakes. For sides, you can't go wrong with their macaroni salad.

    Some of the best crab cake sandwiches, plus a raw oyster bar. Dozen raw oysters, add some lemon, horseradish, hot sauce, and wash it down with a Natty Boh!

    Be careful when ordering the crabcakes be careful! make sure you get the "lump" (they have three different options). The "lump crabcake" is their award winner and definitely the best!

    Skip the crab cakes and try a truly nostalgic taste of Balmore. The Baltimore "Coddie", know to some as a poor mans crab cake, is authentic Balmore hon!

    This place is a sad shadow of what it used to be. The Lexington Market is all but abandoned and the area is so depressed. $20 for a crab cake and a beer is unacceptable in a setting like this.
