This is quintessential Baltimore. Very fresh seafood with little atmosphere. They do have a rooftop deck, but it was closed. If your looking for the fresh seafood and don't care about decor, this is the place for you.

We picked this place based on the tripadvisor reviews and it did not disappoint! The seafood and service were outstanding! They have a red velvet cheesecake that is to die for! I can't wait to go back!!

Having never tried crabs before we wanted an authentic Baltimore crab experience. We have 3 children under 12 and wanted something reasonably priced and casual. The place is not much to look at but the food is good service excellent and so nice. The folks took the time to show us how to clean our dozen large crabs $50. With wooden hammers on our brown paper table we got to work. While we also watched a baseball game on tv and drank a beer. Lots of fun, reasonably priced just what we wanted.

We go to LP Steamers at least once a summer. If you are looking for the full crab experience this is your place. Having grown up in the Baltimore area, I appreciate a good crab house.

Steamers is very consistent in the quality of crabs. If you are new to this, crabs are sold by the price per dozen, which equates to size. The price depends on the market, the most important this to ask about is 'are the heavy'. Which means you get the best value for the price.

The staff at Steamers is pure Baltimore, not for everyone. But they know their stuff.

In the warmer weather the upper desk is open. Great place to spend the afternoon eating crabs and drinking beer.

Great service, amazing food! Simple as that. We were visiting from Boston and wanted a true Baltimore crab experience- and got one! We wanted simplicity- just give us a hammer and some crabs- and lp steamers was perfect for it. The service was prompt and all the staff was friendly and hospitable, we were continuously checked up on, and the atmosphere was comfortable. (mind you, we went on a sunday evening) Nothing fancy in the decor department, and its mostly plastic utensils and such, but when the food is so good, who needs anything but functionality?
The food was unbelievably good. We ordered a dozen raw oysters for only ten bucks- a really good price- and they were probably some of the cleanest, tastiest, juiciest oysters I've had. They were big ad meaty. Then we got a dozen large crabs (of course). It was fifty bucks but it was WELL worth it. They were full of meat and the spice was really really good. The flavor of the meat was great and it tasted fresh.
For dessert (I can't believe we still had room) we had a slice of red velvet cake. They get their desserts from a local bakery and it was very tasty. Had a layer of cheesecake in it. Excellent. The coffee is made from a kureg machine so it was nice and fresh.
I highly highly recommend this place and will be coming back if I ever return to Baltimore.
