THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Gunning's Crabhouse Restaurant Review

: This classic Baltimore crab house has been around for many years. It is still the place to go for heavyweight steamed hard-shell blue crabs along with some of the attendant specialties like crab fluff (a big ball of seasoned crab meat, battered and fried) a fried hard-shell crab (a hard-shell crab stuffed with crab Imperial and fried) and, of course, crab cakes (no explanation required). An unusual house specialty is green pepper rings fried and dusted with powdered sugar (sounds weird, tastes great) as well as jumbo homemade eclairs oozing with pastry cream and slathered with chocolate.
