Their award-winning gourmet crab cakes are hand-made fresh every day using only the freshest and finest jumbo-lump crabmeat and no filler. They've been called "the best crab cake you'll ever eat" by Southern Living Magazine and listed "Best in the Region" by Baltimore Magazine. Aimed to celebrate the lifestyle of the sailors, fishermen and all lovers of the of Chesapeake Bay, Boatyard is home to a welcoming nautical vibe, and now you can experience a piece of that maritime feeling right in your own home!

About The Food

Using the freshest and finest jumbo lump crab, only the highest quality meat goes into the making of the Boatyard’s famous crab cakes, soups and dips. To make a crab cake that truly stands above the rest, the meat is gently hand-tossed to keep the delicious crab nuggets intact. After being mixed with the Boatyard’s own secret crab cake sauce, they’re shaped and broiled until they’re perfectly crisp around the edges. Never frozen and simple to cook at home, these amazing cakes are made with crab, and crab only... as Chef George says, "All Killer and No Filler". All crab specialties—including their sublime Maryland Crab and Cream of Crab Soups and their famous Crab-Artichoke Dip—are made with the perfect combination of flavor, texture and spice. Enjoying these delicacies is an experience second only to an afternoon on the Chesapeake Bay.

Meet The Owner

The Boatyard was founded in 2001 by owner Dick Franyo after a 30-year investment banking career. A sailor and fisherman his entire life, he developed an appreciation of the environmental challenges of the Chesapeake Bay. After his life as a banker, he wanted to establish a restaurant that would stand as an ode to the lifestyle of sailors, fishermen, and all lovers of the Chesapeake Bay. Committed to a healthier bay, sailing fast, fishing with friends and happy kids, Dick has now done just that. His enthusiasm is infectious, and he visits the restaurant just about every day; meeting, greeting and overseeing daily operations. He also serves as a Trustee of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and many other local charitable organizations.
