Here are a few more from the log book that extend the range of the "Eats" list.
Chesapeake Good Eats

McGregors in Havre de Grace Good pub food and beer & ale selection with an outdoor deck and view of the Susquehanna R.

Port Urbana Restaurant, Urbanna, VA Steamed Mussels & calamari - washed down with sweet tea - a very good little place.

The Chesapeake, Cape Charles, VA A jazz oriented restaurant with live music offered on weekends the fare was very good, a notch above "sailor food" but not pretentious.

Mallards Onancock, VA A must if you make it this for. It's right on the dock. The owner is a legit chef - not just a fry cook and it shows in his fare - excellent.

Stoney's Brooms Island, MD THis is their original of 4 restaurants. Revamped a few seasons ago with dock-space for a dozen or so boats. Great outdoor deck and bar and good seafood dishes. Keep going up the Pax past Solomons to Island Ck. to find it.

Vera's White Sands, Solomons, MD. Completely refurbished under new ownership since Vera's passing ('05). Keep going up the Pax past Solomons to St Leonard's Ck. Sandwiches & traditional fare served simply, but a great deck overlooking the Ck. with outdoor dining and of course cocktails. Plenty of dock-space at no cost with dinner. Easy anchorage after dinner.

Fish Whistle, Chestertown: Good food, uptown a short, pleasant walk from the dock. They served a dozen of us from SMSA one Saturday and did it well. BBQ brisket & burrito for us (one each). Pretty good food and prices.

City Tavern, Philadelphia A must if you get to Philly - the place is a short walk from Pens Landing marina and dates all the way back to the beginning of the country. The Constitutional Convention Delegates dined and watered here. Excellent beer, ale and stout offerings and very good 18th century fare. The City Tavern Restaurant And Online Store, Philadelphia Pennsylvania

Dirty Dick's, Delaware City A very typical dockside seafood establishment, but well worth the visit. Good seafood and burgers and a nice outdoor dining deck where you can watch shipping going up and down the Bay at close quarter. Don't hang out in that nasty Reedy Island Anchorage anymore. Take a tie for the night at Del. CIty Marina, even I can get my six foot deep lead-belly in (on the half-tide).

Olivia's Restaurant, Urbanna, VA Short pleasant walk to town - seafood done very well, a nice little place to dine in one of the prettiest little towns on the Bay.

Charlotte Hotel Dining Room, Onancock Excellent food a real chef in the kitchen - no fry cook here. Scallops, spinach salad, caprese for dinner. This food gets an "A" anywhere.
