Hey, Joe.

Sam's is in Chesapeake Harbour Marina. Chesapeake Harbour Marina. Just tell the guard at the gate that you're going to the restaurant and they'll give you a parking pass.

Good stuff. A little pricey, but the food is good. In fine weather, you can sit outside at their tiki bar and ogle the megayachts tied up to the bulkhead.

Here's a direct link: Welcome to Sam's on the Waterfront

I used to keep my boat at Chesapeake Harbour Marina. The marina is a great place.

Sam's has mostly good food but is pretty pricey for what you get. The tiki bar is great in season.

I agree, however...

Have you had the Oyster Pan Roast or the Shrimp or Crab Salad on Croissant??

It's the spice of life!!

I went to the boat after our snow and stopped by Jakes Steaks for lunch at the South Colony Shopping Center in Edgewater.

Good interpretation of the classic cheesteak there, though the roll was a little soft.

For around here though, aces!!

Try Roy's on Fleeton Point, Reedville, VA. Basic, cheap, but great food and cold beer. Roy Headly is a commercial fisherman and friend of my wife's "people," as she calls her family He still crabs commercially (when there are crabs, that is). Great guy and a great place to get a home-cooked meal.

Of course, if you want GREAT Chesapeake Bay seafood delivered right to your door, you could always call my brother-in-law's seafood company and he'll come set up a "crab feed" wherever you want it. Much more fun that way .

Sam's tried

My birthday was the 1st and I decided to take some family members out to dinner (well, that was morphed to lunch because of the Super Bowl). I took us to Sam's and it was GREAT! Thanks for the referral. I just bet it is VERY crowded in the summer.

Actually, Joe, the restaurant isn't usually too crowded even in the summers. The outside area will fill up, but then again it only has a handful of tables. Call ahead for a reservation, but I don't recall ever seeing people waiting outside for their table to be called.

IMO, there is a dire need of some great restaurants that serve something other than crab cakes & crab soup on the bay. Also, most places are serving crap they buy from the big purveyors, its really sad!!!

We don't eat out much when sailing the bay, I usually leave disappointed and often disgusted.

That said, I do enjoy Waterman's in Rockhall for crabs, Chef Rorks Town Dock in St Michaels, Joss Sushi in Annapolis, all with-in walking distance from a dock.

I forgot to mention, if we're talking about including the Potomac/Georgetown/Washington DC, well then I could go on and on about some fine places to eat from the 5-star Citronelle to the typical French Bistro Francaise, still with in walking distance from Georgetown harbor

BTW...I heard Bob Kincaid of DC's acclaimed Kincaid's & Colvin Run Tavern just bought the Phillips restaurant in Annapolis, that could be fun?
