Dinner at Canton Dockside-seafood all around

Canton Dockside greets you with murals on the walls and sports memorabilia. The atmosphere is a mixture between sports bar, seafood décor and has modern take on lighting. It still holds on to the fine-dining decor of the building’s former resident, Canton’s Pearls. There is nice amount of parking and outside dining with a shaded patio. The menu offers a variety of seafood, sandwiches and entrees.

First we sampled the Dockside Cream of Crab (Cup $3.95) and the Maryland Crab Soup (Cup $3.95). The cream of crab was thick and had a nice flavor but I had a hard time finding the meat. They also over did the Old Bay seasoning on top. The Maryland Crab soup came it a nice crab claw hanging off the side of the bowl.

One main dish we tried was the Crab Melt- jumbo lump crab cake served open faced on an English muffin with sliced tomato and topped with cheddar cheese ($12.95) I found the crab cake it self to be on the bland side and the English muffin should have been toasted. There was an average amount of meat in the crab cake.

We also tried the Chicken Chesapeake Sandwich- grilled chicken breast smothered with homemade crab dip and melted pepper jack cheese $9.95. This also was on the bland side and honestly had to much crab dip cheese mixture and made the sandwich hard to eat so we ate it open faced with a fork. The crab dip seemed to be more of everything else and less crab

Service was average and it did take us a while for the check to come after we asked for it. We checked out the steamed crabs that went by and they all looked heavy and big. The majority of the other diners there were ordering crabs and not much off the menu. Next time we come in I think we will try the steamed crabs.
