THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Gunning's Seafood Restaurant Review

: It's a faceless kind of place, a pastel storefront in a strip mall near the airport, but you'll hardly care once the steamed hard-shell crabs hit the brown paper. In summer, those blue crabs are likely to come from Maryland's own Wye River, reputedly stomping grounds of the fattest, tastiest crustaceans. But steamed crabs aren't the only reason for visiting. All the old crab specialties---batter-dipped crab cakes, fried stuffed hard-shell crabs, soft shell crabs in season---are well represented here, along with a smattering of steaks and burgers. The Gunnings have been in the business for 30 years, once owning the original restaurant of the same name downtown, and they do know their crabs. Friday nights bring karoake.
