Best Crab House

L.P. Steamers

1100 E. Fort Ave., (410) 576-9294,

L.P. Steamers is the sort of place you might take out-of-town guests looking for the real deal. Brown paper on the table, a roll of paper towels, a cheap pitcher of beer, and some plastic cups and you’re ready to go. See, atmosphere—at least in the slick Red Lobster sense—is not the point here. Crabs—piping hot, meaty, Old Bay-encrusted piles of crabs—are. (Well, and steamed shrimp. Those are good too.) If you plan to look up from your primal act of dissection, you’ll want to sit outside, on the upstairs deck, where the view’s better—L.P.’s interior isn’t big on ambiance. But the staff is so friendly—and, conveniently for your curious visitors, prone to the Bawlmer accent—that it hardly matters. Open every day, the restaurant serves crabs year-round, though available sizes depend on the day’s catch. No out-of-town guests necessary.
