Essex-Middle River is a veritable hotbed of seafood restaurants and crab houses, but and Crabhouse sets itself apart from the rest.
While whipping up old Maryland favorites like crab cake sandwiches, steamed crabs, barbecue ribs, chicken Chesapeake and a side of Boardwalk fries, executive chef Rob Palen also adds a unique, Asian-inspired twist with dishes like his sesame sashimi tuna served over a seaweed salad.
Desserts like Reese’s Pieces peanut butter pie and Mississippi mud pie complete a satisfying dining experience at Marli’s.
The casual, fun and friendly atmosphere at Marli’s is perfect for families and groups, accepting reservations, walk-ins and offering carry-out. In addition to daily menu specials, the bar offers daily happy hour prices. Marli’s also hosts a wide array of live music and is proud to be a favorite of Baltimore Ravens fans during football season.
