Oprah visits Baltimore, enjoys Canton crab feast

You get a crab, and you get a crab, and you get a crab! Everybody here gets a crab! 

Oprah's in town.

The billionaire media magnate, whose career took off after a stint as an anchor on WJZ in Baltimore, came back to the city Wednesday for a dinner of crabs and crab cakes in a private dining area of Captain James Landing in Canton, according to the restaurant's owner Bill Tserkis.

Oprah posted a picture on Instagram with her partner, Stedman Graham, smiling and holding up crabs.

"Crab feast in Baltimore! #CaptainJames," read the caption.

Tserkis said the couple arrived around 8:30 p.m. and spent more than an hour at the restaurant.

"She said she had a great time," Tserkis said. "She was great to deal with."

Oprah is the second celebrity to sample the state's famous seafood in recent weeks. John Stamos, of "Full House" fame, posted a picture from The Crab Bag in Ocean City last month.

Update, 8/7: Oprah is still in town. She tweeted: "Loving Baltimore today OMG has this city grown. I hardly recognize downtown. #CharmCity"
