We stopped on our last trip through BWI (as usual). Ordered crab cakes. Was disappointed with the poor quality and low lump-meat content. Service was as usual good. Prices are going up and crab quailty is going down. We'll go to G&M next time.

My years-old recollection of Timbuktu was of perfectly seasoned, softball-sized crab cakes with scant fillers. The ones we got were heavily filled with breading. Rather than served with "mixed greens" salad, we received one of 95% iceberg lettuce and 5% other. Also, our salads were...More

While the decor is outdated, and the ambiance could use a little work, the food is EXCELLENT! We ordered the sharing platter for two at $34.99 which consists of: perfectly cooked large scallops, 4 mini crab cakes, ribs, beef tenderloins, grilled shrimp, kalamata olives, cherry...More
