You may already be familiar with MaGerks from their Federal Hill location. Back in 2000, a couple of brothers from Philadelphia decided to open their second location down in Baltimore to serve displaced Eagles fans, and quickly grew to encompass 3 bar areas and an outdoor patio. In addition, they brought you real Philly-style cheesesteaks, authentic down to the Amoroso roll. They did so well that they decided to open another location up in Bel Air. Read on to see how a couple of cheesesteak heads do with their attempt on crab soups!

Cream of Crab Soup


Listed on their menu as an award winning recipe with lump crabmeat. Listed on the online menus for Bel Air and Ft. Washington locations. May appear at the Federal Hill location as the Soup of the Day.

Crab meat is in fairly large chunks, and has a sweet flavor to it. The broth is creamy but thin, and light on the spice. Tastes fresh and has that nice crabby smell you'd expect from a crab soup.

Despite the soup being very good, there wasn't that much depth of flavor from the broth or the spice. While the taste is fresh, we'd like to see more spice to make the flavor profile a bit more complex. Maybe adding some pepper to the mix or finishing with a sprinkle of Old Bay would help.
