I love Sandrina's! I've been there many times, as this is my neighborhood spot, but I've never had the crabcakes, I usually always get the grilled cheese with tomato and cucumber salad and an ice cold brew! Amazing! I have also tasted the duck sliders and they also were very tasty also! The service is always fast!

You should try the ones at Boogaloo St. Louis! They're definitely not going to be Maryland crab cakes (Boogaloo is Cajun influence) but they're some of my favorites in St. Louis.

When will restaurants learn that no one wants a ton of bread in their crab cakes. I come from Maryland, and the only decent crab cake I've had here is at Bristol. Big lumps of crab with just enough seasoning and breading to keep it together. Yum!
