We’re Family. We’re Fun. We’re Local.

Home of the traveling

We are a small, family owned and operated Seafood Market in Baltimore, Maryland and we’ve spent over 40 years perfecting what we do. We take great pride in our products and the reputation that we’ve built a long the way. That’s why every order that we ship is prepared the very same day that we send it to you, because we want you to feel like you just picked it up from our store. All of our seafood is prepared fresh daily by our kitchen staff using family recipes and Maryland tradition. Our Award Winning Crab Cakes are our signature dish and we only use the finest colossal crab meat available. Steamed Crabs are also a way of life here in Maryland and we aim to please, serving blue crabs year round.

Special orders are always welcome. If you don’t see it here, just ask, we’re always happy to accommodate your requests. Please feel free to call us at 888-535-2722 if you have any questions. Our customer service lines are open Monday-Thursday 10am -7pm (est) and Friday 10am-5pm (est). You will not be able to reach the Shipping Department on the weekends, so feel free to leave us a message or drop us an email.

Whether you’re ordering from around the corner or across the country, we know you’ll be happy with the quality of our items. And because we want you as a customer, service is our top priority.

  • Just wanted to let you all know what a wonderful 30th anniversary celebration I had because of you. I ordered crabs to be shipped to Kentucky for my husband as a surprise. They were great. We enjoyed crabs with our family for two nights and the crabs were absolutely delicious. Thank you for such a great memory.

  • I just wanted to drop a note of praise. I'm a lifelong Marylander and know good steamed crabs and good crab cakes. I was in the neighborhood last night and stopped by for a crab cake. You all have the most consistent cake around! For the product you provide for the price, there is no other place that compares. The cake was as lumpy and fresh as ever. I have been getting crab cakes there off and on for about 20 years and they haven't missed a beat. I'll be ordering cakes off your website to send to my parents in Florida- also originally from Maryland and will definitely appreciate those tasty morsels! Thanks again for not cutting corners over the years

  • For Easter this year, Mr. and Mrs. Jones had you ship me two of your big delicious crab cakes. They arrived here in Bedford, TX on April 9th and in perfect condition. The ice pack still had ice in it. I heated the crab cakes as per your instructions and they were the Best. Thank you for making such wonderful food.

  • Thanks Karen! The crabs and crab cakes were awesome! We all really enjoyed them. I'm sure I'll be ordering some more soon.

Pappas In The News

In the Name of the Claw: These perfectly seasoned Maryland crab cakes have more fresh, sweet lump crabmeat than I’ve ever seen in a cake. The blend of ingredients comes from a 45-year-old family recipe. Stedman can’t get enough.

Food Network chefs Aaron Sanchez and Chris Cosentino hit the streets of Baltimore. They'll end up elbow deep in crabs and mussels, get down and dirty on the farm, have their palates stumped by a cool new take on a traditional food group, and attempt to master a centuries old pasta technique.

Call it old-fashioned and frumpy, a place for old folks and old-style food. You're not wrong, and yet, Pappas still manages to do a lot right, especially its crab cakes. There's no mistaking the ingredients of these golden brown beauties as lump, lump, and more lump...just a little mayo and a dash of mustard.

"Say 'crab cake' in Baltimore and someone will inevitably reply 'Pappas'. Now we know why. This 6 ounce mound of crab, lightly crisped on the outside and moist on the inside, with jumbo lumps stole our hearts...This gem doesn't need any adornment.... This one is a winner for hometowners and out-of-towners alike."
