Maryland Crab Cakes + Crab Soup Combo for 2-4

(Customer Reviews)

The Narrows ships its famous crab cakes and crab soup nationwide on Goldbelly! Taste a true Maryland seafood specialty! This quintessential Chesapeake Bay seafood indulgence includes The Narrows’ legendary Maryland crab cakes and your choice of cream of crab or vegetable crab soup. Each order includes The Narrows’ signature, award-winning jumbo lump crab cakes which Zagat calls “the best in Maryland”. These amazing crab cakes are 5 ounces each, delicately prepared using only fresh jumbo lump blue crab meat, a hint of Old Bay seasoning, a whisper of mayo, and virtually no filler.

As a state famous for its crab, Maryland has plenty of contenders for the best crab cake of all, but The Narrows, a Grasonville, Maryland, fine dining restaurant built on the foundation of an old oyster shucking house on the Chesapeake Bay, stands above the rest. Described as “the purest of all the crab cakes” by Gourmet Magazine, it is also the crabbiest. The famous crab cakes served at The Narrows, which was founded by Bo and Brenda Hardesty in 1983, are loaded with fresh jumbo lump blue crab meat and bursting with flavor, capturing any crustacean lover’s heart—as do the restaurant’s heralded cream of crab soup and vegetable crab soup.

Best crab cakes ever! Arrived in perfect condition and on time.
Jan P. - Cape Canaveral, FL
Incredible how fresh it is, just perfect for crab cakes. I'm from Maryland and have spent years ordering crab cakes from restaurants all over just to be disappointed every time, until I decided to have y'all ship them to me, and boom I found what I've been looking for, very good food shipping, y'all are 5 stars!
Michael J. - Homestead, FL
Delivered on time. Product was just what I wanted and better than expected.
Barbara L. - Grasonville, MD
My sister in Florida always loved the food from The Narrows, she can't get Maryland styled crab cakes or soups locally. The food was a big hit
Kathryn C. - Tallahassee, FL
The food was delivered fresh and was delicious! It was fun to receive ”local” Maryland fare when we live so far away!
Renee H. - Irmo, SC

Manon L. - Bristow, VA
Fast, fresh, and reasonable. The crab cakes were the best I’ve ever tasted
Susan M. - Beverly Hills, FL
Wonderful flavor! Though I wasn’t home when the package was delivered, the person checking mail for me said they were still well refrigerated upon arrival. That was a Tuesday, we were finally home to eat them Friday and the delicate fresh Blue Crab flavor and texture I remember from my home place was still in effect. That tells me the crab was VERY fresh upon packaging, and had not been frozen.
Mary S. - Inman, SC
Soups were spot on. Crab Cakes were a bit under spiced. But we had Old Bay on hand to solve the issue.
Michael B. - Saint Helena, CA
Quality of the crab cakes— 99% crab. Hand-made. Fresh. Great packaging.

Crab is sweet and plentiful but I found over lacking in taste, lack of seasoning
