In July 2003, Anthony Conrad decided to leave the corporate business world and pursue his passion as a waterman. For 4 years, he caught crabs and delivered them to local crab businesses. During this time, he and his wife, Andrea, always had the idea and vision to open their own place so they could offer the freshest crabs at the best prices.
After years of planning and hard work, Conrad’s Crabs and Seafood Market opened in January 2007. At the time, there were two other partners who helped get this Maryland crabhouse up and running. In the fall of 2007, Anthony and Andrea, were able to take full control of the market. Since then, they have been the sole owners and have had continued success in this business, with growing sales each year.
Conrad’s Crabs & Seafood Market prides itself on giving our customers the freshest, highest quality crabs and seafood as well as the best customer service. We catch, sort, and then steam the crabs to perfection with our custom crab seasoning. It’s the perfect blend of salt and spices to make our crabs taste the best.
In 2011, the Conrad’s partnered with Joseph Lancelotta, an experienced, talented chef. After three years of hard work and planning, Conrad’s Seafood Restaurant opened its doors on January 29, 2014, exactly 7 years to the day after the carry-out opened. Now Conrad’s can offer the best crabs and seafood in a sit-down restaurant. Executive Chef Lancelotta has created a fresh, homemade menu from locally sourced products and ingredients.
In 2019, Conrad’s expanded in to Harford County. Conrad’s Seafood Restaurant in Abingdon opened on April 23. Conrad’s Crabs & Seafood Market opened in Bel Air on August 26. The community welcomed us with open arms and it is a pleasure to have such amazing customers in both Baltimore and Harford Counties!
We look forward to serving you soon!
