"The Perfect Crab Cake" is something many restaurants in Maryland claim, but there's one place we've found that can back that claim with delicious proof.

Box Hill Pizzeria Marquee

Not long ago we spent a delightful afternoon visiting friends in Belair and decided to top it off with a stop at a local favorite. When you pull in to a neighborhood strip shopping center at 5:00 p.m. on a Tuesday, and the place is packed, you just know it's going to be good.

Box Hill Pizzeria Menu

The Box Hill Pizzeria is known for its pizza, of course, but it's the crab cakes that bring people back. They were perfection, lumps of backfin crab (the best and sweetest crabmeat there is), seasoned and broiled to perfection, served up plump in generous portions. Box Hill's crab cakes were just picked among the best by Baltimore Magazine in the July 2009 issue. Yummy!

Crab Cakes!

Their tossed salad comes with the best house dressing I can remember; it's so good they
bottle and sell their special recipe. The waitress kept urging us to "Dip the garlic
bread and the pizza crust in the dressing!" Yes…it was delicious.

Baltimore Magazine Best Crab Cakes

 

It's true, you don't have to go far to have a vacation day in and near Baltimore. And when it's perfection in Maryland's signature dish, backfin crab cakes, Belair is just a short drive. Can't wait?  You can order online and taste perfection for yourself!

Sally, They bottle and sell their homemade dressing..and I am sure you are right. Any meal with you would be perfect. After all it's not the food it's the company.

Have a terrific Thursday...

Hi Margaret, I just stopped by to say hi and was taken in by the crab cakes at a pizzeria!  This is what is so wonderful about blogging.  We locals can share a wealth of information that one truly  won't find anywhere else!
