Some of the best steamed blue crabs in America are served at On the Bay Seafood in Ocean City, Maryland.
In typical MenuSniper fashion, this is not a contest for who has the nicest seats, best service or most balanced menu. This is about where you can find some of the best foods in America.
On the Bay has great service, but critics have said they aren’t actually “on” the bay, and all their seats are outside. So what. On the Bay serves some of the heaviest, sweetest blue crabs in America. And if you’re a steamed blue crab fanatic, that’s all you need.
Be prepared for a true backyard crab feast experience–sitting outside, in a sandbox, on brown paper lined picnic tables under a pavilion. It’s exactly what a great crab house should look like. And the crabs are amazing.
My family has tried some of the most well known and not so well known crab houses on the East Coast, and On the Bay Seafood in Ocean City, Maryland is one of the very best. It is certainly our pick for Best Crab House in America.
