Welcome to
Blake's Crab Cakes


Bringing the Chesapeake Bay to the Gulf of Mexico



We are so much more than just a crab cake joint. Bringing a taste of the Chesapeake Bay to the Gulf of Mexico.

From the time he was 5 years old, growing up in the suburbs of Baltimore, Blake Rodgers never wanted to leave the kitchen.  His favorite thing was to help his dad prepare Maryland-style family seafood recipes.  Blake took over the kitchen in time.  He further developed his mastery of preparing authentic, Maryland-style seafood dishes while working  for two of the most famous seafood restaurateurs in Baltimore.  Then, Blake took a vacation...

In October of 2014, Blake visited his friends from Baltimore, who had relocated to St. Petersburg a few years before.  During his visit, Blake prepared a traditional Maryland-style crabcake feast for his friends.  They were ecstatic, since it had been so long since they had tasted authentic Maryland-style crabcakes, and they could not find them anywhere in St. Pete. 

Blake had fallen in love with St. Petersburg almost instantly, and two months later, Blake was a St. Petersburg resident.  He immediately went to work on opening up his kitchen, so that his new community would be able to experience the taste of authentic Maryland-style seafood at its best.  On December 19th, 2016, Blake's Crab Cakes was born!



All my Florida friends, if you are in the St. Petersburg area please do yourself a favor and stop in Blakes Crab Cakes. They're worth the trip. Best crab cakes you will ever taste. Worth every penny. And for twelve bucks you can't go wrong!!!! I'm from Maryland and know a good crab cake.

Everyone always talks up how good this cake is here or that cake was there...now all they will be talking about is BLAKE'S CAKES. All i could find in my cakes were lumps of the good stuff!!! And the fresh cut fries bring me back to summers down ocean city and the board walk fries, add some Malt vinegar ftw! Cant wait to fulfill my next cake craving!
