Re: The Best of the Bay - 2013

But hey at least this year they told me something I didn't know about.

I'd never heard or Merrior before and after checking out their Facebook page it makes we wish I was still sailing out of Deltaville so this would be a easy destination.

As it is, I think I might have to fly down to Topping and walk over to check this place out. Looks awesome for being in the middle of nowhere.

Totally agree. For instance take the category Woulda posted. Why would Rock Hall ever be the place to bring out of town guests over Baltimore. There is so much to do in Baltimore from the Inner harbor and the Pride of Baltimore, to Camden Yards, the museums and galleries and the varied multitude of good restaurants, bar, Fells. Point , Canton, the concerts on Pier 6, OP sail, Ft McHenry, fireworks

That's vrs a Pirates Festival average couple of restaurants and crickets. I could understand Rock Hall winning a quiet town award but not a place too bring out of town guests. Nick may be right about the advertising. Maybe the judges lived in Rock Hall.

Re: The Best of the Bay - 2013

My impression of the list is that the biggest / most well-known places usually win out. The magazine is geared toward the Annapolis crowd because that's where most of the advertisers are. Therefore Annapolis wins a lot, followed by areas that people from Annapolis visit on the weekends.

Not a good thing or a bad thing. Just a thing. Though it would be great to find some off the beaten path options. Guess that's where Sailnet comes into play.

Best Town to Bring Out-of-Town Guests
1. Annapolis, Md.
2. St. Michaels, Md.
3. Rock Hall, Md.
4. Smithfield, Va.
5. Baltimore, Md.

Would those be Chinese guests??

Re: The Best of the Bay - 2013

I think they should break it down by population. Say, Best Town for Foodies-Small Town and Best Town for Foodies - City. Or something like that. That means Norfolk, Baltimore, DC, etc will be ranked amongst themselves.

That said, there are two excellent restaurants in Rock Hall in my opinion, but the overall town still should not be ranked higher than Baltimore.

Gratitude Yachting Center is listed in one of the best service categories. They were a charter company and brokerage. They didn't service boats at all. Gratitude marina and some others did their service work.

Re: The Best of the Bay - 2013

Baltimore always gets the short end of the stick on these things. It's becoming one of the better food towns on the eastern seaboard, let alone the bay. A few of the best restaurants are even within walking distance of marinas. I have a feeling a lot of the respondents either haven't been here or haven't gotten past the chain restaurants at the inner harbor.

I also found a couple of the other results pretty funny. The Rock Hall pirates weekend ranked as best annual waterfront event - really!? It's better than the boat show? And GPS is more "essential" than a depthsounder on the Chesapeake?

Agreed...and Little Italy like La Scala.

Having Rock Hall or Annpolis at the top makes me think the review is either influenced by commercial interests or was done by people who think A Big Mac is fine inning French food..

Re: The Best of the Bay - 2013

I love Rock Hall, but year after year I am amazed that it is listed so high on the "Best Town for Foodies" category.
