"True crab cake pilgrims" come from afar for the "incredible" , "softball-sized" delicacies "jam-packed with big chunks" of lump meat at this "real Baltimore experience" in the "historic" , circa-1782 Lexington Market on the "gritty" Westside; service is "quick" , prices are "low" and there are "no frills" (and no chairs – you stand up to eat at communal tables); P.S. fans swear by an "unsurpassed raw bar" and oyster shuckers that are "the best in the business."

Faidley's is AMAZING. Located in the back of Lexington Market. Deliciously balanced flavors and not greasy or heavy at all. I got a lump crab cake platter with greens & macaroni and cheese, with the sweet tea/lemonade combo. So good I almost wanted to order another. They also ship crab cakes! Will be ordering some for sure. Everyone should try Faidley's, I'm so glad I went on my trip to Baltimore.

My wife and I really enjoyed the crab cake and steamed shrimp, super tasty! The atmosphere was cool, too, full of city folk and visitors, loved the hustle/bustle vibe of the place.

Best crab cakes I've ever had. Great local food and attitude. The Lexington Market, where Faidley's is located, was my favorite place to visit in Baltimore. It is a great place for an adventurous eater and attracts locals and tourists.
