Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Haven't eaten at Skipper's a lot since they reopened with the new chef, but they have pretty good nightly specials - including a steamed crab special. The fish tacos are good.

Happy Harbor is a true dive bar. Good fried food, cold beer, good burgers. And, they are open later than most places in Deale - which is why they get most of my business since I'm usually on the boat until 8:30 or 9 in the summer.

Umai Sushi is an interesting, but good choice. I recommend the fried oyster roll.

As I recall, Skipper's Pier food very good (incl crab cakes, but don't bet money on my memory there). Their evening service seems hit or miss this winter.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

There are some new restaurants in Fells Point off the Patapsco in Baltimore. Gordon Biersch opened, yes, its a chain, but they have nice outdoor seating across from a marina. The food is pretty decent bar food. They have great garlic fries. And they have good home brewed beers. The wait staff is very good and friendly. And along the way there, there is Townhouse, also a new restaurant on Lancaster St.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Hey Dave,

That was Langermann's. They've recently been rated one of the top five in Baltimore. For someone coming by water it's right across the street from the Anchorage Marina and would also be very easily accessible on foot from Baltimore Marine Center or from the small anchorage between those two marinas.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Went to Mike's Crab House on Riva Road Saturday for lunch.

I have no idea why I hadn't gone here sooner.

I had the fried oyster sandwich and the wife had the crabcake, both acceptable. I prefer the fried oysters on plain white bread but the potato hamburger roll was OK.

The French fries where golden brown and delicious!! (GBD)

The cream o' crab was very thick and the veg crab was also well prepared.

We happened to stumble upon .50 raw oyster special and took advantage.

Our waiter was efficient and businesslike, which I prefer.

We are going back!!

The menu is more extensive than I thought a regular joint like this would have. Sometimes that's good, sometimes it's more ambitious than they can handle. Time will tell.

Most of the tables have a view of the S.River and the bar is smoke free. I suppose most if not all are these days but there was no lingering effect of the bad old days.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Kind of a belated post, but ate at Skipper's in February.

Had the fish tacos – which were very tasty – and a really good roasted corn chowder with crab.

We ordered the crab bruschetta as an appetizer along with some of the best calamari I’ve had. Was light and not chewy at all.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

The Annapolis Greek festival at Riva road Constantine & Helen was aces again EXCEPT they had no Aris Greek Beer.

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

We ate a nice, low key meal at Gina's Cafe in St. Michaels on Saturday night.

Had some of the best guacamole I’ve had with homemade corn and flour chips. The flour chips were almost like pita chips.

I had the seared tuna tacos with ginger and my wife had the spicy shrimp tacos (they had some fancy name). Both were well seasoned and fresh. For dessert we had a homemade slice of peanut butter pie that really hit the spot – not too sweet.

The only negative was the vodka selections. They had a lot of small batch or organic vodkas, which all taste funny to me.

I was a little shocked by the bill – not outrageous, just more than I was expecting – but it was still probably cheaper than the other options in town and the food was delicious.
