Chesapeake Bay Eats
 
Now that my sailing season has concluded, I'm looking forward to eating season!!

Let's just say my preference is for Old School simplicity, well executed, good value with decent ambiance.

Some of my favorites:

Edgewater Inn, Edgewater, MD. Wed. and Sunday specials. Nice crab cakes and fried oysters. The paneled back room looks just like our finished basement. Can't get more homey than that!!

Pirate's Cove, Galesville, MD. Lunch or dinner, it boarders on waterside elegance. Has more creative menu selections without going too far.

Fisherman's Inn, Grasonville, MD. It's got everything I want and nothing I don't need. Yes, I need a gigantic oysterplate collection to admire while my entre arrives!!

Crab Claw, St Micheals, MD. I normally go there for lunch. Oyster stew and fried oyster sandwhich on white bread. Bloody Mary's real good also!!

The problem is when we travel, I always compare with my favorites and am usually left disappointed.

Have I missed anything??

I hadn't been to Cantler's yet in Annapolis but I'm more of a crab imperial man than a crab picker!!

Kantler's in Annapolis (not Cantler's).

Prop's on Bodkin Creek, good fish selection.

Deep Creek Restaurant on Deep Creek off the Magothy (more than one Deep Creek on the Ches. Bay) comes complete with a few of my Gemini just upstream.
Magothy Seafood Restaurant and Tiki Bar, Mills Creek (Ferry Point Marina) - one of the few places you can still watch the fish boat deliver the fish to the resturant, pick one and eat it.

My favorite meal is breakfast. Everything else is just maintenance.

One of my favorite places for breakfast along the Bayside is Chick and Ruth's in Annapolis. They open early.

For breakfast, I like Carpenter Street in St. Michael's.

One thing they seem to do on the Eastern Shore that I wish they did on the west side is to give you a small shot of sherry on the side when you order cream of crab soup. I love that. There's a place in Chestertown that gives you a little creamer full of sherry on its own plate next to your cream of crab soup. I wish I could remember the name, but it's right on the water.

Hey, thanks for that tip. We've been in there until the wee hours more than once, but I never knew they did breakfast!

Harbour House??

The first time I got the sherry treatment was in Charleston, SC. Nice touch!!

Chick and Ruth's has always been too crowded.

During the Boat Show I have a little breakfast bagel and sandwhich at City Dock Coffee.

But a classic scrapple egg and cheese on toast can be had at Sue's Deli in Edgewater. Lunch sandwhiches w/alvacado are a specialty. We pick some up on the way to the boat all the time.

Fried chicken and cole slaw make a good lunch/dinner at Holly's on Kent Island.

I miss Chesapeake Chicken. :(

Looks a little foo-foo... but I love Lobster Mac and Lobster pot pie!!

Indigo Landing at the Washington (DC) Sailing Marina has an upscale lo-country vibe. It's good, but not quite "Chesapeake" enough!!

Foo-Foo?
 
:D Not as foo-foo as it looks on the website. We ate there several times during the 6-8 weeks we were watching our boat being built at PCI.

If Chuckles will go back, then, not too foo foo (he's a "lets go to Subway" kinda guy)
