The Best Delivery Crab Cakes

The Best Places to Order Delivery Crab Cakes

Its been a while since I have updated the Crab Cake Guy website, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been enjoying another summer of crab cakes and steamed blue crabs. For the past few months I’ve been busy taste testing different crab cakes available for delivery.

My goal, ultimate goal was to find the Best Crab Cake Delivery Restaurants and Companies around.

First off, finding a great delivered crab cake was no easy task. If you do a quick web search you will find a ton of crab cake delivery options from different restaurants, companies, mail order services, and websites. Narrowing this down wasn’t easy and I undoubtedly overlooked some great delivery crab cakes (if I missed some please let me know in the comments section below).

To make it manageable, I narrowed down my test to 10 options. They were found by scouring message boards, reading online reviews, a Google search and past Crab Cake Guy website comments and reviews.

Below is a list of the 10 Crab Cake Delivery Companies I tested.

  1. Crab Cake Express
  2. Faidley Crab Cakes
  3. Crab Place
  4. Phillips
  5. Authentic Maryland Crab Cakes
  6. Timbuktu Crab Cakes
  7. The Narrows Restaurant Crab Cakes
  8. The Crab Cake Lady
  9. Kocos Pub
  10. Cape May Crab Cakes

Overall the experience of buying crab cakes online and order crab cakes over the phone was very pleasant. The delivery times on the crab cakes ranged from overnight to 2nd day mail. For the most part each delivery crab cake was well prepared, packaged, and the re-heating process didn’t take away from the taste. Ultimately, I still feel the best way to get a great crab cake is to prepare one yourself visit  Great Crab Cake Recipes or go directly to a restaurant that serves crab cakes.

So, without further ado the Top 3 Best Delivery Crab Cakes

Honorable Mention: Kocos Pub

3. Phillips- Great taste, good size, affordable price and the delivery options help Phillips really stand out.  All orders are shipped to arrive within 3-7 business days. They also have 2-Day Delivery and Rush (Overnight) Delivery.

2. Timbuktu Crab Cakes-  If you have ever visited Timbuktu in Hanover you know how good these cakes are. I ordered on a Saturday and the following Tuesday I was enjoying the cakes. Great job!

1. And the Winner of the Best Delivery Crab Cake- The Narrows Restaurant. Fast and timely delivery, the final product was amazing. Generous amounts of lump crab, great tasting, at an affordable price. Calling these jumbo lump is an understatement… they were huge, and tasty. If you are looking for a real “crab cake” experience in the comfort of your home, then The Narrows Restaurant is the way to go.

Overall, The Best Delivery Crab Cake taste test was a very fun and enjoyable experiment. If there are other companies or restaurants that you think I should try, please leave a comment below. Congrats to all the participants and to our winners.

    Hello. I LOVE this site! I just found it tonight and am so excited about your recipes. Plus, I was thrilled to see thorough article on Delivery Crab Cakes. I wondered if you would clarify for me, please. I immediately went to The Narrows Rest. page and noted that ONE crab cake (although jumbo) is $15.00 (??). And, I read that there’s an additional $13.00 for refrigerated packing. Am I correct in thinking that one jumbo crab cake would cost approx. $30? I really hope that’s not the case, as I was interested in ordering the soup, also. Thanks so much for what you share here!

    For an impressive eat in or takeout crabcake, I have had the best experience(surprisingly) at Seasons Pizza, in Newark De. I’m not sure if the chain has a location near you, but their cakes are jumbo lump with almost no filler, and subtly spiced…true crab flavor, yet reasonably priced. Well worth trying!

    Hello crab cake guy,

    My son and daughter-in-law live in Phoenix AZ. and I would like to send them either a gift card or have crab cakes delivered to their home for their upcoming anniversary.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Donna
