Food is big in flavor and in portions. There are an abundance of seafood options on the menu. All things fried are good. Why? The items like chicken, shrimp, and fished are breaded on the premises. Old bay makes an appearance in just about every fried food and sometimes bits of parsley. The fried cod is tender and light. The fried shrimp is superior to many others that I have consumed because often fried shrimp is not seasoned well.
The Chicken fingers are flavorful but they were dry. Another winning flavor is the dill dressing which comes with the house salad. It's has a unique flavor and it is so popular that it's bottled and sold in the Cafe Hon store. Yes, they have a store.
Cafe Hon does a good job of reminding one that Baltimore is to crab what Bubba Gump is to Shrimp. My dining companion and I are served a plethora of crabby dishes. Maryland crab soup is a tomato based soup. At Cafe Hon, it is filled with generous amounts of crab meat, chunks of potato, carrots and peas. The cream of crab is like a bowl of comfort. Pull the blankets over me and bring on winter. There is also a thick crab dip with a cheesy coating topped with old bay. Crab-cake is also a great option. Don't worry or concern yourself whether or not there is any filler—it is all meat. As an aside, I must mention the steamed shrimp dish is wonderful. Old Bay Seasoned shrimp are atop a bed of onions and red potatoes.
