You should link the place chef Tersiguel's - Home I am a big fan of the chef and the restaurant. Several of our students have worked there and always have a positive experience. He makes all his own charcuterie in house...kewl. What's a Me Filet and a Donna Canard? LOL

Oddly enough, I have never eaten there? WTH?

Dare I say this, but I think the Annapolis restaurant scene may be turning itself around. Perhaps a good thing in difficult economy, you have to provide a better product or you're out. I wouldn't be surprised if Carroll's Creek is gone sooner than later?

Cheers,
Shawn

No one could be more surprised than me. The Pusser's special was $35 per couple for a shared appetizer, two entrees, and a shared chocolate strawberry thingy. We figured the view was worth $35. Very light turnout. Access by boat is icing on the cake. Maybe they are part of the turnaround that Shawn noted? I sure hope so.

I dined at Tersiqual's a few years ago and was impressed.

I have learned that Jimmie, the owner/chef at Parthenon on Bay Ridge Ave, passed away late last week. The future of the restaurant is not clear.

This was one of the good value, good food places in Annapolis.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

I think Cantler's is good - mainly for the low-key ambiance. The crabs are pretty expensive, especially when compared to buying live bushels at the DC fish market and having them steamed there for free. The beer is cheaper on my patio as well.

We keep our boat in Deale so the water-front food options are limited to a couple dive-ish bars. If you venture a few blocks from a marina, however, I would recommend Umai Sushi. I had my doubts, but the sushi is very good. Their oyster roll was unique and worth trying – in addition to more traditional options. Still in Deale, and off the water, is South County Café. They have a good breakfast and good crab cakes.

By water, Skipper’s Pier is a good spot to grab a drink outside and have a tasty and cheap fish taco.

Middleton Tavern in Annapolis has nice oyster shooters that are usually pretty inexpensive and for a nice dinner, Harry Browne’s – near the statehouse – is excellent (or was last time I was there). I think the State House Inn is affiliated with Piccolo Roma on Main. I’ve never eaten there but they have interesting sangria and makes a good pit stop when walking from the docks to the Navy Stadium.

If you’re in Oxford, Scottish Highland Creamery has a great ice cream cone. Pope’s Tavern is nice as well.

Thanks for everyone else’s suggestions. Looking forward to a nice day of sailing followed by a good meal.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Hi Nicklaus,

I'll update the spreadsheet and post the revisions sometime in May - I have a couple of back-to-back deliveries to get through.

This place has awesome crab cake sandwiches... Unfortunately, the restaurant is under new management due to landlord issues and it's getting a face lift. It's shutdown right now until renovations are done. Hope they keep the same cooks...

Angry Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Parthenon Greek Restaurant in Annapolis

If you anchor or moor in Back Creek Parthenon is a reasonable walk up either Edgewood Rd or Bay Ridge Ave. They don't participate in eCruisers.

Parthenon is open under new management after the passing last year of the previous owner/chef. The dining room has been spiffed up a bit but you won't be surprised at anything you see.

The menu has been overhauled. It seems to me that the prices are generally higher and some of the old favorites have passed. I used to truly enjoy the gyro platter with fries and salad. You'll have to add the sides a la carte now which gets a bit pricey.

It's a challenge to describe the new Parthenon fairly since the old Parthenon is so near to my heart.

I had the gyro sandwich special that came with red potato fries. The gyro was very good. The yogurt sauce was excellent as was the meat. The tomatoes were a bit woody but we all have trouble getting really good tomatoes this early in the season. The only real disappointment was the fries which were both undercooked and soggy.

Service (hi Melanie!) can only be described as outstanding. I was well tended to without being interrupted. Good service is a challenging balance between attention and intrusion. Current service is a big step ahead of the old management and most other places in Annapolis and resulted in my fourth star.

Management is definitely interested in feedback so I'm hopeful that the rough edges will be smoothed off and I will once again be a Parthenon regular.

Four stars.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Had steamed crabs at Cantler's Saturday. $75/dozen for extra large. Excellent crabs and a free slip while we ate!
