  2. Nancy Ruffner (verified owner)

    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.

  9. Kimberly Morales (verified owner)

    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. Ed (verified owner)

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

  21. 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.

  22. Owen To (verified owner)

    Best crab cakes in all of Baltimore.

  23. Karl Bader (verified owner)

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

  24. 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

  25. 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.

  26. 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!

  27. 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.

  28. Linda R. (verified owner)

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

  29. 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!!

  30. Gail Vernon (verified owner)

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