This was the best crab we EVER had!!! And the tartar sauce unbelievable. This will not be the last order from Boatyard Bar & Grill. They are not kidding with the slogan "all killer no filler".
Richard A. - Danvillek, KY
We love the Boatyard crab cakes and crab dip. When we are in the area that's where we eat..every evening, sometimes several days in a row. We were thrilled when they offered shipping and have ordered several times. We have also given orders as gifts and they have been much appreciated.

 I ordered the crab cakes to serve a friend that came to visit me in Albuquerque. My friend is originally from Maryland and said that these crab cakes were the best she ever had. Thank you! 
Cindy M. - Rio Rancho, NM
Crab soup always tastes better in Texas, which is where we are. We will certainly order it again. We will be in Annapolis at the end of the month, and certainly will show up at the Boatyard Grill then. Make sure you have crab cakes available!
Michael D. - Cedar Park, TX
OMG, these are the BEST crabcakes I have ever had! They taste delicious, are of excellent consistency, being almost 100% lump backfin. Absolutely scrumptious! Having grown up in Baltimore and then moving to California many years ago, I miss crabcakes very much. My brother, who lives in Annapolis, sent me these marvelous crabcakes for a Christmas present, and I can say with total honesty that they are the best crabcakes I have ever had, bar none! You can't find the blue crab in California, and nothing compares to them. Over the years I've had crabcakes while visiting home, but these are truly the best!
Francie N. - Leona Valley, CA
Excellent quality of crab cakes
Kenneth B. - Pawleys Island, SC

ARDEN L. - Lititz, PA
This is a fun and easy way to buy "reminders of home" for friends and family. My parents LOVED the Crab cakes and were so happy, as that is one of the things they miss about living in Maryland. Quick and easy, the gift arrived within 48 hours and they immediately consumed and enjoyed! I will be ordering from Goldbelly again!
Thomas F. - The Villages, FL
The Goldbelly site had exactly what I was looking for to send to my son in Arizona. The crab cakes I ordered from a local restaurant were prepared and shipped one day and delivered the very next day, 2500 miles away. He was delighted with the meal and I was very satisfied with the service.
David S. - Laveen, AZ
Crab cakes arrived in perfect individual containers ice cold along with tartar sauce. The sauce was delish and I don’t believed it was mentioned on the order. These crab cakes are such a treat out here on the west coast. They are huge, ordered too many for our dinner party. Froze a bunch snd can’t wait to have them. The BEST!
Deanna W. - Redondo Beach, CA
Everything went well with this order! There was ease in ordering as well as speed in delivery. My husband and I enjoyed our crab cakes from the Boatyard Bar and Grill. They arrived fresh and delicious. Their taste reminded us of fun days sailing in Annapolis, MD and good brunches, lunches and suppers at the Boathouse! I will be ordering again from Goldbelly!
Nanci H. - Altoona, PA
