The Washington Post reviewed Bobby's Crabcakes, listing it in its 2008 Fall Dining Guide. In addition to awarding it Best Crab Cakes 2008, the Washington City Paper also placed it in its 50 Best Restaurants in DC in 2009. The Washingtonian also recommended it:
- Blue booths, brick walls, marble tabletops and sepia-toned photographs pretend to age this fledgling seafood purveyor, where the lobster roll is the equal of the crab cake, the macaroni and cheese sports a fine cracker crust and the key lime pie emphasizes tang over sweetness. Service might be indifferent. The food never is. – Tom Sietsema, Washington Post
- Bobby's Crabcakes knows how to treat Maryland's signature dish right...owner Bobby Bloch relies on jumbo lump meat from Chesapeake blue crabs when available, which is precariously held together with just enough binder and seasonings. Broiled and carefully placed on a potato roll, with some killer fries on the side, this crab cake has no peer...you'd think you were on the Eastern Shore, eating from a cardboard tray. It tastes that authentic. – Scott Reitz, Washington City Paper
- The little restaurant is also super cute, I love the marble tabletops and the exposed brick walls. It always seems very clean...they really do have the best crabcakes around (and some of the best fries, as well). – Abbey S., Yelp
