The crabs are consistently good at Winters Run. Usually they are not local but they always have crabs year round.

This was my birthday present and this crab eater was really displeased with Winters Run Inn... More

Steve, the owner, accommodated 26 of us for a family reunion. The atmosphere could not have been better for a crab house. The two waitresses, Shelly and Chelsea were great the entire night, had a great smile on their faces and could not have been more helpful. The food, the cream of crab soup was delicious, we had four pounds... More

I've been going to the Winters Run Inn for a number of years only to get oysters to go and maybe a quick beer at the bar while I wait. At night this place is loud and rowdy and has the reputation of being a biker bar. However, I took some out of town friends to the Inn for crabs... More

On a recent business trip to the Baltimore Area, a close friend took me to Winters Run for crabs. Growing up in the Western Maryland area, crabs from the east were always a special treat, so I was definitely eager to go. Let me say, I ordered medium sized crabs and found that I have never stopped loving them. It... More

Just the best crabs around and always friendly and helpful staff. Love that they do their steamed shrimp with onions and their corn on the cob with the crabs. Have never been disappointed when we go here.

We found this place on Yelp and thought we would give it a try. The other reviews said to try the shrimp and onions, they were so right! Amazing!! We were newbies but the locals sitting next to us were very helpful with helping us choose what size crabs to order. We splurged on the extra large and were not... More
