The Woodlands' Best Crab Cakes


Kirby's Steakhouse

1111 Timberloch Place, The Woodlands, TX 77380

Simply the best!! The presentation of this crab cake is second to none. A huge portion of jumbo lump crab meat, piled high, is simply crabgasmic. Just the presentation itself is worth ordering for.


Crabby Daddy Seafood & Steakhouse

25186 Interstate 45 Ste G, The Woodlands, TX 77386

These crab cakes are hand made in their seafood shop next door. You can be assured of the freshest seafood and quality used in making these cakes. They have little filler and lots of crab meat plus the option of being deep fried or sauteed.


Babin's Seafood House

19529 Interstate 45, Spring, TX 77388

Definitely try the N'awlins crab cakes while you're enjoying a cold one up at the bar with bartender Kathy. The portion sizes are smaller but they still pack a punch with great flavor and minimal filler.


Landry's Seafood House

1212 Lake Robbins Dr, The Woodlands, TX 77380

What a great way to end or start a weekend after activities on The Woodlands Waterway! Listen to live music outside while enjoying endless orders of crab cakes. The mixture of spices and jumbo lump meat make these crabalicous.


Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

4322 Boy Scout Blvd., Tampa, CA 33607

A nice teaser to as a precursor to a good steak. These are crab cakes like no other. Jumbo lump crab meat with a lime butter sauce - you couldn't ask for anything more.
