“Excellent Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

My husband and I recently visited Annapolis. After reading the reviews for Wild Country Seafood we decided to go there for dinner. It is hard to find but well worth the effort. I had the crab cake platter and my husband had the seafood combo. Both were fried (sometimes the diet can be forgotten) and came with fries and coleslaw. Our meals were excellent and very reasonably priced. The seafood was obviously fresh. There are only a few tables outside. It was a beautiful afternoon so we didn't mind sitting outside.

“Great crabs, well-seasoned and spicy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

You'll need your GPS to find Wild Country, and don't be put off by its unassuming exterior. We ordered a bushel of crabs for a large group of us to take back to our house, and they were very good...sweet and seasoned with a mix a tad spicier (as in hotter) than the traditional old bay.

Two quick comments: their hours, particular during the week, are very limited. So make sure to call or check their website. Second, if you're ordering a bushel, make sure you call a couple days in advance. That way, you can have them ready and waiting for you when you come in.

“Local Secret: Best Crabs in Annapolis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

Wild Country is hard to find - situated at the end of a short, dead-end street by the Maritime Museum, it is worth the search. Fishermen for 47 years, Wild Country knows its crabs, oysters (raised in private beds) and fish. The restaurant is out of the seafood market storefront. Everything on the menu is great. Take it to go or eat outside under the hula-skirted umbrellas (with boat shaped condiment holders on the fence). Wild Country only serves what's in season. Recently my husband, son and I ate delicious soft shell crab sandwiches. I also love their fried clam strips, oysters, and fish sandwiches. Everything is fresh and cooked perfectly. It is the best option for seafood in Annapolis - just a little ways off the tourist path.

“"Local's secret"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

This place seems to be a locals dive. The food was simply fantastic. I ate the best crab cake sandwich of my life. Super fresh. Nothing fancy, just realty really good food. It is at the end of a dead end street. No line to wait, no crowds. I think I am the only tourist here.

“a bit out of the way but worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2013

If you happen to be in the tiny community of Eastport (In Annapolis but across Spa Creek and the historic district), you should pop in for some excellent fresh seafood. Their winter hours are very limited (weekends only) but that is for good reason.....they only serve the freshest local seafood and the cold weather yields less catch and less variety.

This place is owned by the folks who actually do the fishin and crabbin. In the warmer months, during blue crab and rockfish season, they are open daily. No inside seating, but picnic benches outside makes the perfect perch when indulging in some fried shrimp, clams, oysters, crabcakes, scallops, and fish sandwiches. If you would like steamed crabs for your dinner, this is the place to get them.

If you want some true local flavor, Wild Country Seafood is where it is at.
