Cameron's Seafood Market

$$$$ ($14 and under)

Editorial Review

The Food section rated this restaurant's crab cake for a July 2009 story about the area's best.

Fair value for what you get, with no mystery about what flavors the crabmeat: The market sells the Old Bay Crab Cake Classic Mix right next to the cases of fish on ice. The filler is rightly spare, but the chef can leave the cakes too long in the fryer. Ask for them broiled. The accompanying bread/roll is not worth its carbs; fries are average. Scarf down the carryout at the patio tables, and an audience of small, hopeful critters (two- and four-legged) may factor into the dining experience.

Two 4-ounce lump-backfin crab cakes (broiled or fried), $11.99; 8-ounce jumbo-lump crab cake, $10.99
