Our History

Our Historical Archive

Obrycki's was established in 1944 as a Crab House and Seafood Restaurant in a small corner rowhouse in Baltimore's Fells Point neighborhood by members of the Obrycki family. In 1976 Rose and Richard Cernak purchased this location, and as the business grew and needed more space, it expanded into a larger location adjacent to the original location 1986. This location operated seasonally through November 2011, and is now closed. After much consideration we decided to change direction and focus on smaller year round restaurants such as Obrycki's Restaurant and Bars and A Bar.

Though we’ve outgrown and expanded from our original location, our goal has always remained the same: to create a one-of-a-kind enjoyable experience centered on great Chesapeake regional food.

We focus on using fresh blue crab meat in our menu items. And, we realize that as we grow and evolve as a company, it is impossible to duplicate the “authentic crab house” feel of our Baltimore location in our new locations. We will promise you this; our standards and quality at any of our locations are “authentic”.

The Cernak family looks forward to your visit to Obrycki's.
