Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waiter, Brad needs to be trained on how to serve properly. We had no napkins until the dinner came. He forgot my boyfriend's second wine. He failed to remove soup plates until the dinner was served. We had paid the bill and the dirty dinner plates were still in front of us. The food was not very hot. My baked potato was too hard and they made another one for me. My broiled crab cake was barely broiled at all. We are pretty flexible with service but this is the second time G.L. Shacks has disappointed. Cream of crab and Maryland crab soup was good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mandy was not the best hostess. I ordered cream of crab soup as my appetizer and she forgot to bring it. She asked me if I still wanted it... the soup was warm yet the chunks of crab meat in the soup was very cold!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I’ve been to the restaurant many times over the past couple of years, lauding the crab cakes to people I know. I’ve recommended it to friends and on this visit had people come from Pennsylvania and from Florida to eat crab cakes. Unfortunately this was the first time I ever experienced multiple pieces of shell and/or cartilage throughout the crab cakes! I was truly disappointed as were my out-of-town guests. I hope the restaurant takes this feedback to heart and fixes the issues we experienced. If not, I doubt I’ll keep coming back.
