I have been on the seach for GREAT Crab Cakes in Roanoke Virginia for almost a year now. It amazes me what some Roanoke VA restaurants call Crab Cakes. I have experienced everything from dill flavored crab and bread patties to some weird crunchy things with corn in them to what another restaurant referred to as Crab Cakes with onions and celery in them. I am sorry, Crab Cakes should have......well....they should have CRAB in them! I have tried crab cakes from just about every restaurant in Roanoke that claims to have good crab cakes...even some restaurants that claim they are great on the side of their restaurant (worst in Roanoke).
Welcome First & Sixth Restaurant- One of Roanoek Virginia's Newest Restaurants and Lounges. My girlfriend told me that a new restaurant in Roanoke had pretty good Crab Cakes, a Restaurant by the name of First & Sixth located on Jefferson Ave in the old (but recently renovated) Patrick Henry Hotel. We stopped by for an early dinner to try these supposed "pretty good" Crab Cakes early on Sunday afternoon. I could not believe it....these are not pretty good Crab Cakes, They are Great Crab Cakes!!! If anyone reading has had the pleasure to eat at Rudee's On the Inlet in Virginia Beach, these are as good or BETTER and I did not think that was possible!
So Roanoke Virginia, if you want GREAT CRAB CAKES, you have to try First & Sixth in Roanoke VA- They truly do have Great Crab Cakes!
