Hit the jackpot. If you are a blue crab enthusiast Kahlers is like going home and your mom making a crab feast. We don't have access to crabs we live on St. John USVI but every time we get to Baltimore or Annapolis we go for crabs.Kahler's is unpretentious and not a chain like Phillips. The crabs were huge meaty... More

We are from Arizona and really miss those blue crabs that we had for years, growing up in Maryland! Just visited Baltimore and Ocean City, and tried Kahler's as it was close to my brother's house! WOW! We ordered a dozen of the 79's and they did not disappoint! Tender, tasty and cooked to perfection! Will surely visit again when... More

Apparently this family-owned crab house has been in business for decades, but we just discovered it sitting across Philadelphia Road from Rosedale Gardens. We had to order our dozen ahead and make a reservation, and when we arrived we upgraded to add steamed shrimp and roasted corn - so glad we did! Nice ladies served us, a classic joint. But... More

We had onion rings which were good. The hamburger was overcooked and had to send it back. The second buyer was just ok. Got crabs which were excellent except if you want the big ones you have to call early in the day. They were $89 for what they call colossal. Actually they were jumbo anywhere else. Service was horribly... More

If you want to eat here, better make a reservation. When they are at capacity the staff gets frustrated that you walked in without one. Service is painfully slow and if you're lucky enough to sit outside beware of sitting downwind of the dumpster.

We went there recently for dinner. My wife and I both love Cream of Crab soup and have had it from dozens of restaurants from Baltimore to Annapolis to the eastern shore and the soup we had at Kahler's is at the top of the list. In addition, I tried the fried fish and chips and was very happy with... More

The crabs were superb and the service was excellent! The wait was not long at all. I will continue to patronize and recommend Kahler's Seafood.
