On my 2 trips to Ocean City, we've eaten here both times at least once.
Searched high and low and asked many many people- Being from Western NY... there are no great restaurants in my area for seafood. We like to eat what is local when we vacation- After asking many people we were told Bahama Mama's was the place to go for the best crab in Ocean City.
The restaurant was great- you could eat indoors or outdoors.. We chose outdoors-- the table we sat at gave us a beautiful view of the bay. A great ocean breeze and it was quieter outside than in. What better place to eat crab then outside to enjoy the whole feel of the beach.
We when we ordered we were told that crabs were priced by weight-- that way you got what you paid for... Crabs are separated into 4 groups, small, medium, large and extra large- $29/dozen for small up to $69/dozen extra large. OK so a bit pricey for a Western NY girl--- but they were so worth it- We went for the dozen of Large-- There were 3 of us ladies- We also got corn on the cob, bbq chicken, and veggies.. The meal was great!
The servers were so wonderful as well as the service--- A plastic pail was brought to us to put the shells when we finished-- this was neat--- and it was emptied frequently so that we weren't overcome with shells.. I laughed when the brought us a roll of paper towels--- I noticed they did this for people who ordered crabs... When we finished (we ordered another dozen of large crabs) I was surprised at how many paper towels we used-- that a great idea after all we all said.
So anyways the restaurant got a 4 star review from us... Truly the best crabs we've had anywhere-- and the best view too.
If you take a trip to Ocean City.. be sure to check out Bahama Mama's... Its well worth the cost!
