Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

During last week's trip south, we discovered a nice restaurant at Cape Charles, VA City Marina, which is a relatively new facility that is top notch. The Shanty Restaurant at Cape Charles features locally caught seafood, plus lots of regular stuff, burgers, etc... Excellent, attentive waitstaff, good menu, and very fresh seafood dishes.

All the best,

Gary

The Narrows Restaurant at Kent Narrows used to be excellent.

Maybe there is a new chef since you ate there? I heard the table next to us ask the chef if he'd come out and they praised him up down and around so it wasn't just us.

Perhaps the scene gets more desperate later in the evening but even n the context of meeting family and with a youngster along, I didn't see anything that would prevent me from going back.
Try 10PM on Friday/Saturday.

It's not "desperate" just "active".

We ate there recently and I agree that it's quite good. The service and ambiance were also very good. However, I always had good service and food at Maria's. Maybe I'm just feeling nostalgic.
