The Crackpot in Bel Air has steamed crabs all year round, but this is the time of year we Marylanders start thinking seriously about them. The Crackpot is also known for its crab cakes — 10 different varieties, ranging from the original to the Pounder Plus (a 20-ounce cake) with stops in Italy (crab cake with marinara) and Mexico (crab cake with salsa, onion and green pepper).
But is a meal there worth the trip up 95 to Bel Air for Baltimoreans who can more easily eat at the first Crackpot on Loch Raven Boulevard? Next Sunday’s review in the Modern Life section will answer that question. Feel free to post below if you’ve eaten at the Crackpot and want to weigh in.
