Obrycki's Restaurant and Bar is a Baltimore original known for its fresh, high-quality seafood. The restaurant has been featured in Patricia Schultz's book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, and Frommer's named the Obrycki's at BWI one of the top 10 best airport restaurants in the U.S. in 2011. Earlier this year, it was ranked among the World's Finest Airport Food by the Daily Meal.
Obrycki's Restaurant and Bar opened its 80-seat, 2,500-square foot location at the AIRMALL at BWI Marshall in Concourse B in July 2006. The restaurant also opened a 2,400-square foot location on Concourse D at the AIRMALL at CLE in May 2010. The menu at both locations includes crab cakes, crab soup, soft-shell crabs, crab salad wraps, shrimp salads, and broiled shrimp and crab meat.
