G & M Restaurant and Lounge, Linthicum Heights, MD

Just a few miles south of BWI airport, sits G & M Restaurant and Lounge that's been in business for over 30 years and is known for its legendary crab cakes. In our pursuit to find Maryland's best crab cake, we headed down to G & M for a week day lunch.

Me, my grandfather, and Charles

I ordered the crab cake sandwich that came with a choice of two sides. I chose french fries and mixed vegetables. This oversized jumbo lump broiled crab cake was prodigious! The seasoning was tasty, but didn't overpower the sweet crab meat. Grip this sandwich tightly with two hands, or you might struggle to keep this bad boy contained.

My grandfather selected the two Maryland crab cakes entree with a side of coleslaw. He was infatuated too. 

Charles ate the broiled flounder stuffed with crab meat. This fish entree was yet another ginormous plate of seafood goodness. Even Charles couldn't finish the whole dish!

My mom found out the restaurant was also known for its Greek dishes, so she ordered a chicken souvlaki sandwich with Greek salad and a side of green vegetables. She loved it.  I ate some of the souvlaki and I agree, everything was very fresh and well prepared. The pita bread was righteous - slightly crispy, warm, and seasoned.

While we were all happily stuffed, we couldn't resist ordering dessert. We weren't crazy about the coconut custard pie. There was too much stringy coconut for our liking. However, the caramel cheesecake and apple pie were a slam dunk.

Although G & M is known for its crab cakes (which I would rate as one of the best crab cakes I've ever had), it seems that there are quite a number of other dishes that are equally as good. We would definitely go back.
