    Wonderful as usual! We bought the jumbo crab cakes on our first order and the junior size this time. Both times, just fabulous! The best crab cakes I’ve ever had!

  3. Desiree (verified owner)

    The Junior Lump Crab Cakes were amazing! I had them shipped to Texas. They arrived cold and ready to prepare!

  4. SHARON CAMPBELL (verified owner)

    Best crab cake, the texture, and taste are wonderful. Yummy crab cake. This is my second order (in 3months) and differently more in the future.

  5. Robert O Krammer (verified owner)

    The individual containers were ideal for our portions for meals. The quality of the food was excellent.

  6. Patrick Gardner (verified owner)

    There is nothing like Crabcakes and the crab egg rolls from Jimmy’s!! I got them for my mom for an early Mother’s Day dinner because it’s one of her favorite meals. She said hands down they were the best she ever had. Hope my orders have helped you guys through this tough time and I appreciate the guaranteed amazing food yall always provide!!

  7. Rose (verified owner)

    We ordered the crab cakes for Easter and enjoyed them very much. They are the best we’ve ordered from MD and they shipped to us in TN on day requested. Loved the cooking instructions included.

    Crab cakes are great..coleslaw is the da bomb..love it.Wish I could find the same here at home in MA.

    Prior to placing the order, I was hesitant about spending $100 for food from a restaurant we’d never stepped foot inside. I’m so glad we did because the crab cakes were the best we’ve ever had. Unlike crab cakes from other places, every bite was loaded with delicious crab, not filler. The 8 oz. ounce individual servings made the cakes so easy to form and cook evenly – it also prevented the “hey, you got more than me” comment. I cooked all four at the same time and we thought about eating all four on the first night, not because we were still hungry, only because they were that good. Thankfully we didn’t because I just heated them in the oven the next night and they were just as delicious. Thank you!

    First time ordering from you. The Junior Crab cakes were really big and cooked perfectly following your directions. They were here in 2 days ready to go.

  11. joyce bentley (verified owner)

    the order arrived on time. the taste of Maryland was great

  12. Jan L (verified owner)

    Crab cakes are the best I’ve ever had, and, at 73, I’ve had a lot of crab cakes in a lot of places! The meat is sweet and delicious. They are packed well and freeze perfectly if not preparing them immediately. This is my 4th order, and I added the egg rolls this time. What a treat! And the sauces were great, too. Made my Mother’s Day perfect! All the way in Minnesota (I’ lived in Maryland until 1997).

  13. Michael Bish (verified owner)

    Wow Crab cakes were amazing. Shipping was fast and well packed

  14. Rachel (verified owner)

    Omg the absolute best! I may have to move to Maryland!

  15. Lorraine Kirkpatrick (verified owner)

    I shared the crab cakes & egg rolls with the folks I work with and we all agreed they were the BEST! The egg rolls — which I wondered about when ordering — were AMAZING! There was so much crab in the cakes it was almost like eating fresh crab on the dock. The egg rolls were crabby and creamy and DELICIOUS! I’ll be back for sure & I passed out your website to the folks at work & imagine you’ll hear from them too! Thanks for a GREAT product!

  16. Kerri Crabtree (verified owner)

    Absolutely delicious, best ever. Ordered more for a Father’s day gift yesterday. Will order again soon.

  17. Michael (verified owner)

    They pack everything in convenient containers ready to cook or freeze. I make it a point to eat at Jimmy’s every time I’m in Maryland. One of the best crab cakes in Maryland.

  18. Edward Higgins (verified owner)

    We usually buy the Jumbo crab cakes and wanted to try the Junior this time since the weight on both are 8 ounces. They were excellent however we like the Jumbo crab meat better and will be ordering those in the future.

  19. Jolie Ancel (verified owner)

    It doesn’t get much better! I’m a Baltimore girl living in Los Angeles, and I crave crab cakes in the summer! I’ve tried making them to save a few dollars….It’s worth the splurge! I just wish you would go back to using dry ice when shipping!

  20. Linda Hurford

    They were so good…..definitely will have these delivered again.

  21. BigSyl

    This was the best seafood meal I ever had. Was spending time with my sisters. I never heard of your y’all. Will definitely be placing my own order. #FamilyConvention

  22. Ron Cave (verified owner)

    First of all everything was tasty. Only issue I had was their instructions were not clear on a recipe card which came with my order. Bay sauce came with my order which included 5 different items. Wasn’t sure which item to use the bay sauce on or in. There were also other small containers of sauce which I was not sure how to use. My crab cake egg rolls were supposed to include oriental slaw which i did not receive. I did not have time to check out the instructional videos which the card showed a bar code for. I guess you could say I winged it. Everything was very good but on the pricey side.

  23. Steven Angelo Fiorino (verified owner)

    No questions about the quality of the crabcakes. Awesome.
    Shipping.. Fedex didn’t deliver.
    Had to go pick up at there center…
    They lied and said they tried…
    There reason for not delivering….business closed….
    Package was shipped to private home…

  24. Ed (verified owner)

    Simple indorsement: we sent these MD Crab Cakes to my sister in CA for her birthday, and she LOVED them!!

  25. George Shea (verified owner)

    Possibly the best crab cakes I have ever had. As a child I grew up around the Severn River and we caught our own crabs using chicken backs and a string. My grandfather made crab cakes on left over crabs we didn’t eat. In any event I will definitely being ordering again.

  26. Angela K Slayton (verified owner)

    My first time ordering the junior crab cakes. fantastic! I was hesitant doing so ($) but read a LOT of great reviews and thought I would try. They did NOT disappoint. They were fantastic and full of yummy crab!

  27. Owen To (verified owner)

    Best crab cakes in all of Baltimore.

  28. Karl Bader (verified owner)

    Unlike my Lions, your crab cakes always deliver! Looking forward to more at Christmas!

  29. Katherine Clark (verified owner)

    So large I almost could not eat at one seating but I forced my self I am not a quitter. So very good

  30. ANNALISE J WILLIAMS (verified owner)

    This was our first time ever ordering from Jimmy’s and we were all very impressed with the quality and can’t wait to place another order. — we ordered both the Eastern Shore Blend and the Junior Lump and both were a hit at our gathering. The packaging is very well thought out! From the ordering process, to shipping, to oven and table…this was amazing.

  31. Cindy Wursta (verified owner)

    I sent these to my mother in Portland, Oregon. She’s been living there for ten years and missing Baltimore crab cakes. She loved them!!!! So good and so easy to prepare. Thanks, Jimmy’s!

  32. Sheryl (verified owner)

    I bought these crab cakes as a Christmas gift. I was told they were delicious and some of the best crab cakes they had ever had – lots of crab and little filler. The people I gave them to have been eating crab cakes for about 40 years.

  33. Linda R. (verified owner)

    Delicious as always! Worth every penny. Full of jumbo lump crab, little to no filler 🦀

  34. Ron McClain (verified owner)

    OMG!! We served the crab cakes with a NY Strip steak for our Christmas dinner. Everyone raved about them. This is the first time that we got crab cakes form Jimmy’s. I had always got them from G & M. we thought yours were better!!

  35. Gail Vernon (verified owner)

    Excellent Crab Cakes!! They are easy to prepare and full of Crab!!

  38. Deana Waters (verified owner)

    Got them for a gift for my niece & her husband that live in Easton MD. They said they were delicious. Wish I could have been there to enjoy them. Have been to your restaurant in Baltimore with them – the best!!

  45. Jay Rostien (verified owner)

    I bought the crabcakes for my daughter & family in Georgia & they loved them. Needless to say I didn’t get a sniff Lol.

  46. rthufford1948 (verified owner)

    It’s been years since last time ordering the crab cakes. It was well worth doing so!! There’s no place in Missouri like Jimmy’s and my family raved about the crab cakes as part of Christmas eve dinner!!

  47. Deneen Cooper (verified owner)

    Just absolutely delicious. If these are junior size, the regular suze musr be huge. Can’t wait to place my next order.

  48. Jacqueline Stephens (verified owner)

    there was a buttload of crab in those things! They were thebomb.com!

  49. Stephanie Moore (verified owner)

    Had the mix shipped to my parent’s house in FL so we could have REAL crab cakes during my recent visit. No “Maryland Style” anywhere else will do! The box arrived on time, product was ice cold. We had crab cakes for dinner twice and they froze the remainder. Everything was perfect and I would recommend to anyone. Will for sure order again. Thank you!

  50. cprovoyeur1 (verified owner)

    I highly recommend ordering their crab cake. We cooked ours tonight for their instructions and it was absolutely off the chart.

  51. James Herbert (verified owner)

    Crab cakes are a perfect size. Although the 8 oz Jumbo is also a great cake. Keep up the good work. Thanks…….

  52. Kristen Hoffman (verified owner)

    The whole family loved these! The junior lump and jumbo lump crabcakes are both awesome!

  53. lilmonkey1406

    The flavor was incredible, I did cook them wrong on my first try, but they were one of the best crab cakes I’ve ever had, so much delicious lump meat

  54. Lori H

    BIRTHDAY SUCCESS! My Mom is THRILLED!! From the taste and quality of the crab cakes to the packing, fast shipping and delivery. She lives in the South, and I was nervous to ship seafood in July (it was 95!), but everything arrived frozen solid on schedule in time for a birthday feast. Haven’t had such delicious crab cakes since we used to drive to Maryland from NoVa when we lived there many years ago. Thank you to everyone at Jimmy’s for making my Mom’s birthday surprise a winner!

  55. Raymond LaRose (verified owner)

    We loved the Junior Lump Crab Cakes, out of everything we ordered, I’d have to say this was our favorite. Full of crab 🦀 no fillers. We’ll definitely order these again. Very filling they are a meal in themselves. We had the leftovers for breakfasts the next day, Lump Crab Cakes, Eggs and Bloody Mary’s life doesn’t get any better than that.

  56. kglagola (verified owner)

    I sent these to my sister for her 80th birthday. She lives in Washington state and misses our Maryland seafood. She wrote me that they were absolutely fantastic!

  57. dnneckert (verified owner)

    I recently purchased 1 small famous gift box, with 2 6 oz. crab cakes free for my father’s birthday and another for my son’s birthday, so you know I had to buy a third one for myself. It was the best idea, I ever had for gifts. I thoroughly enjoyed all of it. The crab dip was smooth and very good, and the crab cakes were so filled with lump crab meat and seasoned very well, the best I have ever had! The soups are another favorite now too, everything was perfect and seasoned to perfection. I will definitely, buy these same items again and make sure I get my families take on the gifts, for another review! Thank you, for making this born Maryland girl, living in Texas dinner last night!

  58. Lori Uhrig (verified owner)

    My wife and I grew up in Maryland and live in Ohio now. We have crab cakes from fresh Chesapeake Bay crab meat we buy from Jimmy’s for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New year’s. All of our family expects these great crab cakes. We’ll keep coming back to Jimmy’s for our family tradition meals! Thanks!

  59. tjstegman (verified owner)

    Absolutely the best you can get outside of Baltimore.

  60. Wanda McCoggle (verified owner)

    First time ordering from you guys…and I’ll definitely be back! These were the best crab cakes I have ever had!(I’m questioning what I’ve been eating before!🤭) They are FULL of crab and easy to prepare.

  61. Kim Grimes (verified owner)

    The crab cakes are fantastic. Purchased several for gifts this year.

  62. James Magarelli (verified owner)

    Crab cakes arrived very quick and were still frozen. Had for Christmas Eve and they were absolutely the best crab cakes I’ve ever had. I’ve been wanted to buy some for a while and happy I did.

  63. Valerie Moore (verified owner)

    Crabcakes were meaty and not a lot of filling. Everyone enjoyed them and my sister ordered them the next day because she enjoyed them so much.

    The crab cake was delicious. I ordered my family some of them so they could try. I can visit them every time I come to Maryland.

  72. Derrin Mallory (verified owner)

    Delicious! Best crab cakes on the planet!!

  73. slhkingswood (verified owner)

    My wife grew up on the East coast with crabs and crab cakes. For her birthday I splurged and ordered the 6 oz mini cakes. They did not disappoint. She was thrilled. The cooked up golden brown and just enough fillercto hold them together. But they had to be 90% crabmeat. Definitely worth it

  74. Tina Thomas (verified owner)

    The jumbo crab cake is good. I thawed it out yesterday after work. Place it on a cooking tray and place in oven. I check on it and had to turn oven on 365 to get it baked faster but I spray can’t believe it butter on it then finished baking it, I are half. Took it to work warm it up are it with some rice with vegetables and it was still good as heck. It you can warm up a crab cake in microwave the next day and it still taste fresh that’s a good crab cake. Yes so would recommend buying them. This was my first time trying Jimmy seafood so glad I did.

  75. Gloria Gardner (verified owner)

    Absolutely scrumptious as always.

  79. Kathleen Gladmon (verified owner)
