Best Crab House

4100 North Point Blvd., (410) 477-1975,

When you walk into Costas, you're greeted by photos of celebrities both local and national-William Donald Schaefer, Earl Weaver, Rick Moranis, the Crypt Keeper-who have cracked crabs at the Dundalk mainstay. The restaurant splits in two: an expansive dining room where they roll out the brown paper and dump pails of Old Bay-caked crustaceans on the table, and a large barroom decorated with historic images of the city. You can feast on crabs at the bar too. The minimum is a half-dozen, but they might let you skate by with an order of three if you're really jonesin' for crabs and get 'em in the right size.
