Re: Solomons Island - shuttle?

We ended up at Zanheisers. It was great, and Dry Dock restaurant was the best of our week long trip!

Yes Spring Cove has a Gulf Cart Shuttle. Both Spring Cove and Z have bikes for rent. Z has a restaurant on the premises. There is a new restaurant that opened up at Calvert Marina that was reviewed in the latest edition of CBM. Yet to try it but sounds good!

Zanheiser's is way to go. Clean modern showers/restrooms, pool, restaurant, and free bikes. The restuarants up the street and to the left are walking distance. The 7-11 is up the street and to the right but take a bike. The restaurant on the pier was awesome and I wish we'd tried the Tiki Bar.

Yeah that's the place I was thinking of. Wife and I had lunch there a week or so back and it was quite good. It's small but the food is definitely good.

Re: Solomons Island - shuttle?

Zanhiser's has bikes for loan. The island is really small. We typically prefer to walk to dinner and such even though we park a car there. Tiki Bar is only 15-20 minutes walking at a leisurely pace, sidewalks and boardwalk all the way except in the residential neighborhood which has little to no traffic. Stoney's is quite good, there are also several smaller places worth having a meal at, the cafe just outside Zanhiser's is really good, on C Street and Solomons Rd(?).

Re: Solomons Island - shuttle?

If you are staying at Zahniser's, they have bikes that you can rent. Don't know how much and perhaps they're even free for transients???
It's really not that far of a walk, maybe ten minutes to Stoney's from Zahniser's??

Edit: Just went on their website, they are free.

Oh, wow, thanks for the info. That will help us decide where to stay.

I just read that Spring Cove is now offering shuttle service into town.

Good to hear Catamarans is closed, it sucked! No wonder

Zanhizers & Spring Cove have excellent bathroom facilities with Spring Cove having the advantage ( I wish our club had bathrooms that nice, even half as nice, somewhat embarrassing that MYC bathrooms are in such poor condition to be honest). The restaurant near Spring Cove is not bad, not great either, typical bay fare with a pleasant atmosphere and good service.
