Top Definition
The best seasoning on the face of the Earth. Used for crabs, shrimp, fish, vegetables, chicken, french fries and basically anything edible.

If you're not from Maryland you probably don't know what it is.
MD Student 1: WTF? They didn't put Old Bay on the fries today!
MD Student 2: Don't worry, I always carry some with me.

It's a tasty seasoning if you're in Maryland, but an annoyance if you're anywhere else. If you're in a deli in New York don't ask the guy at the counter if he has any Old Bay for your burger. Everyone in line will think you're a tool.

Old Bay is the greatest spice on the face of this Earth (beating out salt, pepper, and Cavenders All-Purpose Greek Seasoning). Legend has it that it was developed by the gods as a seasoning for their seafood, but one of them accidentally dropped the can and it landed in Maryland. The Marylanders didn't know what to use it for, and so they tried it on everything and realized that it made the food better by an order of approximately 7.9331 magnitude.

In all seriousness though, Old Bay is Jesus to Marylanders. It tastes amazing on everything from crabs to fries. If you haven't tried it and find a can of it in your local grocery store (unlikely if you live anywhere more than 200 miles from the Chesapeake) and get it. You will not regret it.
Marylander at grocery store in Texas: "Do you have any Old Bay at this fine establishment?"

Texan grocery store worker: "The fuck is that?"
