Nobody can forget dining at Captain James Seafood Palace. After all, it's not often that you see a restaurant shaped like a steamship, complete with its own water taxi stop. Founded by five brothers in 1978, Captain James has become a Baltimore institution, serving premium local seafood to Eastsiders and out-of-towners from all walks of life.
Regulars say that the jumbo lump crab cake is a must-have for tourists and visitors, and Yelp reviewers also recommend the rich and flavorful seafood stew filled with scallops, shrimp, and fresh fish, as well as the broiled seafood platter, with about a dozen different items, including clams casino, stuffed oysters, and more.
Be aware that this place can get quite busy for dinner or on Sundays, so if you and your friends from Union Wharf are in a rush, or you prefer a calmer atmosphere, you might book a lunch date during the week.
