Now that there is disagreement, I must go and be the final arbiter!!

While atmosphere scores high, there is no excuse for bad food.

That being said...

Here's a classic. Can't beleive Hank Dietles still thrives on Rockville Pike. A real throw-back!!



They get around the bad food part by only serving pickled eggs and chips!!

SVAuspicious will become famous soon enough
As long as you are going further afield, there is Carlson's (IIRC) Thai Kitchen and Donut Shop with stores in Annapolis and Edgewater. I kid you not. Pretty far if one is arriving by boat however.

Other places that occur to me near boating centers include:

Woodburn's Market in Solomons (deli inside grocery is very good)
Chesapeake Wine Company on Boston St in Baltimore (great small plates)
Dockside Restaurant in Colonial Beach, VA (basic American food)
Kingsmill Restaurant in Williamsburg, VA (choice of nice restaurant on grounds and pub overlooking marina)

I've been to each of those several times and must agree!!

I was in Chesapeake City over Thanksgiving.

The Bloody Mary at the Chesapeake Inn is still tops!!

The Chicken Chesapeake at The Yacht Club was too salty. However, I am inspired to make my own version to treat my hosts at the beach this year!!

Hey WouldaShoulda, are you referring to Edgewater Restaurant on Mayo? Or is there another place I'm not aware of? I'm asking because I haven't been there and would love to check it out.
Thanks!

That's it.

148 Mayo Rd (Rt 253) between Rts 214 and 2. The building used to be red, now it's blue.

Edgewater Restaurant Calendar/Map

Another fun thing to do nearby is going to Homestead gardens (plant nursery)

Because Life Should Be Beautiful-Homestead Gardens

It's done up for the holidays now with carolers and a train garden!!

Thanks WouldaShoulda. We'll check out Edgewater Restaurant. We keep saying we should try it out, but never seem to make it. Homestead Gardens is already a fave of ours. Haven't been there for the holidays yet, but we were there in October and it was nicely done up for fall.

Hey, Mr. Pollard. I forgot to mention The Main Ingredient as an excellent breakfast joint in Annapolis. They're on Forest Drive between Bay Ridge and the Giant near Edgewood Rd.

They have some pretty fancy stuff there. I like to get their french toast topped with cinnamon apples and vanilla custard (I like to avoid the scale for a few days afterward). Deeeelicious.

WOW, how could I have possibly missed this thread? I love Chesapeake Bay Sailing and Eating...

My all time favorite is so very close to where I keep my boat, Pirates Cove in Galesville (I keep the boat just across the river). The Crab Cakes are among the Best and the Maryland Crab Soup is also pretty good too. I know they make other things but why bother...

And about this "Sam's" where is it and how do I find it. My wife loves Lobster Rolls (we just returned yesterday from 2 weeks with the Grandkids in Boston Area...boy am I glad to be out of the snow belt).
