Suicide Bridge Restaurant

With no response from the cuisine experts on this 'List'..I thought it best to go it alone and travel down and and experience it for ourselves. With a full moon tonight and the weather waning towards the high humidity again next week and the opportunity probably wont' be had for the foreseeable future ..I'll be riding my bike and enjoy the evening ride. I should be arriving around 6pm..if anyone wants to join look for a BMW R1200GS/A that will be my mode of transportation until I can ask the locals about getting under the Rt 50 Cambridge bridge.

Two weeks in advance of our 50th wedding anniversary on June 3rd. we made reservations for the luncheon cruise.
The big day arrived and we departed for the Suicide Bridge Boat ride 2 hours away.
We were 1 hour from the boat when we got a cell phone call notifying us that the trip was cancelled due to a lack of enough passengers.
Not a good impression, especially the timing of the call.
Sorry,

Dick

Talking Great Meal at Suicide Bridge

Well after flying back from Nashville, I ran down by car to enjoy dinner at the Suicide Bridge Restaurant. We really enjoyed the choices offered. There was a buffet offered Friday night that offered fresh oysters being schucked while you wait, more fish and meat options, fresh baked breads. It was pretty impressive.

We choose to divi up a two crab cake dinner and a tender $12.00 prime rib dinner so we were getting surf and turf. Salad was fresh and crisp. String beans were very, very good.

The sad thing is that the Rt. 50 bridge on the Choptank River is only 50 feet high. Maybe we need to learn to careen Tango over so we can go East to this nice restaurant by boat.

Happy sailing!!

Leslie...now this i gotta see....Clay hanginging off the boom as you go mast sideways under the bridge. How far from an anchorage ( the bridge) is it. Could it be accomplished in a dinghy ride?

Forward this to Dave (SV Auspicious) as he is keeping the Big alive Wayne kept on the restuarants and reviews.

Hope all is well

Good reveiw.

Got it. Will update the spreadsheet. Want to give the restaurant a star rating (1-5)?

Thumbs up Rating for Suicide Bridge...

Wow, I would give it a 5. The crab cakes were large and were totally large lumps of back fin crab. No filler, just some egg and mayo plus seasoning. Really excellent.

Now for that maneuver to get there...how about this???
"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epz6BBZm__0&NR=1[/URL] called "boat balls" showing an 85 ft mast going under a 65 ft bridge on the Intracostal waterway. Makes me smile.. Can we learn to do that and what is the strain on the rig???

The Suicide Bridge Restaurant is too far for a dinghy ride (about 10 miles up river) from Cambridge. There are two paddle wheel vessels that start at the restaurant and travel down to Cambridge...takes them 1.5 hours for their "3 hour tour". It would work if you could get one of them to pick you up but would get stranded??? It was even a long drive.

Too bad cause I can't wait to go back. Food, service and view were terrific. Sorry they don't have an establishment in Rock Hall.

cheers,

Leslie

One wonders if kb has a vested interest in SBR?

Hi Leslie,

The "boat balls" concept is very reasonable. The load on your rigging must be less than a spinnaker.

I don't fit under the 50 bridge either, but we may make an adventure out of along dinghy ride up to the restaurant.

Read about SBR in USA Today...

You know, I read about SBR in USA Today while on the road...(I am always on the road). They identified SBR, Waterman's in Rock Hall and one of my fav's, The Narrows by our old marina located on Kent Narrows. Having eaten at the two, I needed to check out SBR. It was nice it turned out to be so good. It is a long drive....about 70 miles from our new locale in Rock Hall.

The boat balls looked like a bit of an adventure. It seems they swing the balls out by turning in a sharp circle, swinging the balls outboard. I would hope that the weight on the boom would give more control. That does not mean I would be putting Clayton out there...maybe a bit of water in the dink hung on the end of the boom???? I kind of liked the balls though. They at least looked soft if they came too close.
