    G & M Restaurant & Lounge: So you like Crab Cakes?

    by olddude Written Mar 10, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you love crab cakes, this is the only place to go in Maryland for them....PERIOD. If you ask anyone from Maryland where to get the best crab cakes, they will tell you G&M! There are other places that come close, but there is only one G&M. The cakes are the size of softballs and taste awesome! They even send them around the country mail order so they are known nationwide.

    Favorite Dish: Although, their signature dish is crab cakes, my favorite is actually their crab soup and their cherry cheese cake.....excellent.

    Woo Chon: Best Korean Food in the US yet...

    by olddude Written Mar 10, 2012

    After I moved from Northern Virginia, I was afraid that I wouldn't find good Korean food near my new home and would have to make the 90 minute trek back to Virginia just to get my "fix". Well, my search is over. I found Woo Chon (actually pronounced "Oo Chon" in Korean) using Yelp. The reviews were not that good, so I knew it must be authentic and I had to try it.

    Well, I have been there twice now...once for dinner and once for lunch and neither time has been a disappointment. It is very authentic, right down to the Korean newspaper machines outside and the small bottle of yogurt served after your meal. It's not much to look at on the outside, but the food is off the charts. For those looking for some watered-down fusion Chinese Korean wannabe eatery, this place is NOT it. It is if someone froze a little mom and pop place in Pyongtaek and shipped it to the US untouched. They even serve barley tea while you wait for your food.

    However, I must warn those not familiar with true authentic Korean places that there are nice carpeted floors. There is a big TV on the wall playing Korean programs and Korean ballads playing in the background. You may even see them cleaning the fresh bean sprouts for future dishes right at a table next to you. It will be bare and maybe a little uninviting to the uninitiated...probably the cause of some of the low Yelp scores. I guarantee that the low scores are from people who have never traveled to Korea and not used to the atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: I have no favorite dish as of yet. However, I will comment that the side dishes are plentiful and always of the best and freshest quality.

    Gourmet Shish Kabob & Spy House

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Jan 19, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stopped at Gourmet Shish Kabob with an Afghan friend who had a mad hunger for food from home. Kabobs are common in South Asian and Middle Eastern cooking, so we weren't positive where the restaurant was from, but "shish kabob" means "lung kabob" in Dari, so we were pretty sure it wasn't Afghan. Turns out the restaurant was Indian/Pakistani with a mix of kabobs and curries.

    We wandered up to the fat, lazy man at the counter who gleefully explained the menu to us, the only customers in the entire restaurant. We ordered a few different kabob plates and a curry meal along with rice and naan bread. The owner just sat behind his counter and when the meal was ready yelled over to us so we could get the trays with our food. The food was tasty and the portions large. Not the best kabobs ever, but good.

    Later I learned Gourmet Shish Kabob was the cover for an Iraqi spy named Saubhe Jassim Al-Dellemy who covertly assisted Saddam Hussein's administration for two decades. Apparently the restaurant's location near the National Security Agency helped gather intelligence information from the US. He later plead guilty, admitting to "using his restaurant as a meeting place and passing information to Iraqi agents.” Dellemy was born in Iraq, came to the US in the 1980s, became a citizen in 2000, and was arrested in December 2008.

    Dock Street Bar and Grill: Best crabcakes in Annapolis?

    by Andreja86 Written Jun 25, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had many problems locating a restaurant in Annapolis where we could sit outside close to the habor. We found it with this bar - therefore we never saw the interior.

    On a huge sign they said that they made the best crabcakes in Annapolis which seemed to us as a tourist trap teller.
    But we chosed to try their crabcakes anyway.

    The restaurant was a bit busy so the service wasn't the best but I don't have any huge complaints.

    Favorite Dish: The crabcakes was really good and felt fresh. It was my first and until now the only crabcake so I have nothing to compare it to but the table next to us also had compliments about the crabcakes.

    I had the crabcake sandwhich and we also tried the Dock Street Burger which was nothing out of the ordinary.

    Water front dining. Beautiful luxury yachts parked right in front of your table. New owner recently put some money in the place and the chef is the best in 100 mile radius. Servers are top shelf like the food, the atmosphere, the view...can you tell I like it here?
    Watch people jet ski while you eat. Sit outside, listen to Reggae music. Dance with your children!!! When is the last time you danced with your children on the water front? You NEVER out grow this, and they better not either!
    Wonderful atmosphere, food and service, nautical these of course. They have private dining in the main building and banquets for large groups in an other.

    Adam's the Place for "Ribs": BBQ Ribs

    by grandmaR Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Bagdasian family opened "Adam's the Place for Ribs" in 1981 after operating at the original location in Edgewater, Maryland as a neighborhood restaurant since 1965. They have since opened four other locations. They also cater events such as Golf Tournaments or weddings (catering truck in photo 5), and they will deliver their ribs anywhere in the US.

    Available at Five Convenient Locations:

    Adam's Ribs Edgewater (this is the original one)

    PO Box 299, Rt. 13
    Fruitland, MD 21826
    Tel: 410-749-6961

    Favorite Dish: I considered having the coconut shrimp appetizer, but eventually settled for a small rack for $10.95 with a side of green beans (the vegetable of the day $1.75), pink lemonade and a home made key lime pie. I thought the green beens had a little too much garlic, but they were fresh ones, and nicely cooked. The meat was spicy and could be eaten from the bones with a fork.

    Bob had a regular small rack (I didn't want the french fries that came with that which is why I ordered ala cart) for $12.95, and iced tea.

    The soup of the day was cream of crab, and they also had steaks, rockfish, tuna, crab cakes and other seafood.

    The second time we went, I had a half chicken and cream of crab soup, and Bob had a regular small rack again.

    G & M Crab Cakes: crabcakes are their specialty, but...

    by b1bob Updated Jul 24, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As far as restaurants my boss has chosen on auction trips go, this was one of the better ones. No, it was not in the Inner Harbour of Baltimore (in fact it was much better than that one), but rather in the suburb of Linthicum Heights near B.W.I. south of the city and near our hotel. Those who judge a restaurant based on the outside will be disappointed, but trust me, walk right in and get some food. There was a rather large group of us and the service was great. The menu is diverse. For those not keen on seafood, they offer a wide range of Greek and Italian food too.

    Favorite Dish: Although crab cakes are the signature dish (they're so popular, they have a mail order business on the side), I ordered the fried scallops. I have loved fried scallops since I was a kid at the beach, getting adult portions as young as age 5. I don't like crab cakes because they are bound together oftentimes with mayonnaise (in my opinion, the lowest culinary ingredient in existence). You could get two vegetables with it and I had the side salad and baked potato. The portions were enough that I didn't go back to the hotel hungry. The scallops were cooked perfectly (in the blink of an eye, you can overcook scallops and they become little rubber balls). The baked potato was great too, but would it have killed them to go beyond lettuce, tomato, and onions in the salad?

    Angelino's Family Italian Restaurant: Gyros, anyone?

    by b1bob Updated Jul 24, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My boss keeps strange hours to eat, taking supper at 4.30pm. That was a long pull until breakfast, so on my own dime, I found this reasonably-priced restaurant cattywampus from the Red Roof Inn in Lanham the night before a liquidation of a recently-closed supermarket a couple of years earlier. The design of this restaurant was most unusual. You enter at the top and place your order to the cook in a very tiny and very modest kitchen with old equipment. From there, you step down into the dining room in a larger, but still small sunken area below.

    Favorite Dish: Many Italian restaurants often offer some Greek food. I had the gyro without white sauce and with a side of fries.

    Red Star: Eclectic Food

    by lonestar_philomath Written Mar 23, 2008

    Unusual combinations make this restaurant's menu come alive.

    Favorite Dish: Eaten there once on 21 March 2008. Had the pizza that comes with artichoke hearts. Was covered in cheese and delicous. Microbrews and a well stocked bar with beer and wine completes the dining experience. I will eat at Red Star again!

    Waitress could have been more atentive to my order because she brought out an incorrect meal meant for another table. My collegue was polite enough to wait until my pizza arrived about 5 minutes later before commencing.
