One name that has been synonimous with Ocean City, MD is The Greene Turtle.  We're sure most of us started going there before we really should have *wink wink*, if but for the chance to buy one of their famous t-shirts.  What has started out as a beach sports bar in 1976 has now grown to be a regional brand name, turning up in more locations as the days go on with over 35 locations across DE, MD, VA, and DC.

Maryland Crab Soup

The Green Turtle's Maryland Crab Soup is a tomato-based broth filled with carrots, tomato, green beans, corn, peas, lima beans, onions, and lump crab meat.

Broth has a definite tomato taste with a salty bite.  Crab meat has a little bit of flavor to it, and is added after the soup is served in broken pieces.  Vegetables taste somewhat fresh, but don't have an overly appealing flavor or texture.

Overall, the soup is just too salty.  The broth doesn't taste like a crab stock, and with the crab meat being added in afterwards, none of the crab flavor (what little of it there is) that makes a crab soup combines with the sauce.  Vegetables could be a little fresher and have some snap to them.  Less broth and more contents would be nice as well.  All told, this is really just a mediocre tomato soup with some crab added to it.
