The Food section rated this restaurant's crab cake for a July 2009 story about the area's best.
Volume is the first word that comes to mind, especially as you watch double-breasted platters with a full pound of crab cakes whoosh by while you wait. Ninety percent of the customers who fill this 299-seat restaurant order the somewhat-secret-recipe, available-by-mail-order, award-winning behemoths.

They deliver the full-on taste of sweet crab (Venezuelan), with classic flavor. Hard to beat.
Eight-ounce jumbo-lump crab cake, $16.95; two crab cakes, $24.50

Please, will NEVER return to eat at this establishment again.

I don't know why I had a funny feeling when the day arrived, but I called the restaurant to check and was told -- bluntly and with NO apology -- that FedEx was backed up and I could either change the date or cancel the order. I said I'd call them back, which I did, a few days later. I was then told, with a verbal shrug, that the order was cancelled and they'd have to be reordered. So the boyfriend placed the order again and called me with a new delivery date -- yesterday. Burned once, I called to check, and now they had no record of the order. Again no a
