Lately we have been going to Mission BBQ on Somerville Rd in Parole/Annapolis to pick up lunch on the way to the boat.

Locations | MISSION BBQ

(I didn't realized they opened a location in the old Stevens Hardware building)

It is a regional chain but it has been very consistent and GOOD!!

Went for the Pork but the brisket and smoked turkey are also very good, better than places that try to prepare turkey like pulled pork then smother it in sauce.

They usually have a $2 can beer special in a tub of ice, which make the usual PBR or Natty Bo drinkable on a hot day.

The coleslaw (more dry than wet) and mac n cheese sides have also been good.

Anything it lacks in authenticity it has made up for in delivering a good, consistent product.

That's really all I ask for no matter where I eat!!

I know this is a bit of a thread necro, but since it's stickied I thought I might as well put some useful information here.

For those in Annapolis, I've enjoyed Miss Shirley's for breakfast. It's a bit off the harbor (about a 15 minute walk up to near the Westin), but if you hop on the Circulator for your free ride up the hill, it's easy to just hop off at the front door to the restaurant.

I had previously made Chick and Ruth's my ritual Annapolis breakfast. Miss Shirley's blows it out of the water. If you want sweet, they have a coconut cream stuffed French Toast that's out of this world. If that's not your style, their crabcake eggs benedict with fried green tomatoes are amazing. All their food was cooked perfectly, and service was prompt and with a smile. Their prices aren't terrible, either, but it is Annapolis, do don't expect dollar dining. I can't wait to go back - hopefully in the next couple weeks!

There is also a Ms. Shirley's location in Baltimore, walking distance from the marinas in the inner harbor.

I say let's keep this thread going. When the occasional post pops up on my Subscriptions page I can keep track of places I may want to visit. There's so much turnover in the restaurant industry that it's nice to be able to get to one before it goes away, or to be informed of a mainstay in a location.

Don't stop please.

If any of you ever get to the top of Chesapeake Bay, hang a right into the North East River and sail up to Charlestown. On the left side of the river across from the town of North East you will find the Wellwood Restaurant https://wellwoodrestaurant.com/

If you are a big fan of Oysters Rockefeller this is the place to visit. They have an excellent menu and I have never been disappointed with any meal I have eaten there. Those Oyster Rockefeller are beyond your wildest dreams.

Good luck,

Gary :cool:

Today, I decided to take my wife, daughter and grandson to the Wellwood for lunch. Unfortunately, I forgot they were closed on Mondays, however, The River Shack, which is owned by The Wellwood and situated right around the corner, was open.

I ordered my favorite appetizer, Oysters Rockefeller, which we split. Fortunately, my grandson has not acquired a taste for oysters at age 11, but he probably will when he gets older, but by that time he can pay for his own. ;)

My daughter ordered a Crabby Patty, which is a burger topped with a crab cake and Mozzarella Cheese on a Kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato and mayo. She said it was incredible. My wife ordered shrimp salad, which turned out to be massive portion of shrimp salad served over a bed of mixed, chilled vegetables. She managed to eat about half and brought the rest home for dinner this evening.

I order their fish sandwich, without the bread. (I eat too many carbs as it is.) Also got an order of hush puppies instead of french fries on the side. The fish, which turns out was farm raised channel catfish, was absolutely superb. It was perfect cooked, well battered with their own batter recipe, sweet and flaky. The hush puppies were very tasty, especially when I slathered them with honey-butter.

I can't say enough good things about The Wellwood and The River Shack in Charlestown, Maryland.

All the best,

Gary :cool:

The Wellwood Club is one of the reasons for my recent weight gain, but it was worth it! :)

Oysters Rockefeller and a half dozen raw, Long Island Blue Points kicked off the meal, followed by fish and chips with delicious cole slaw.

Somehow, when I dragged my lunch photos into the post, there were two photos of my cockpit drain there as well.

Donna, this place is not that far from your home - give it a try. I sincerely believe both you and John will love the food and the service there.

Farm raised channel catfish is an oxymoron

Try the blue catfish you see in markets now. Great cornmeal dusted and sauteed or fried

Across the Bay Bridge f III rest exit southbound on Kent Island
Killer views ...best on the Bay.
Awful food 4 out of 10. Service was good

I had Rockfish Reuben .not sure it was Rockfish...tasteless. best part were the sweet potato fries
Donna had Crab , Snrimp salad on potato rolls. Tasteless not even old Bay. Shrimp were tidi ( in the business U 120) the size of maggots.
Potato rolls were nothing special ( Martins) . If the were trying to make a l as y on a NEw England Loster Roll, they have done better to stick
A hot dog in it.

Drinks were good and like I said view sunset and Bay Bridge were beautiful

Don't waste your money here.

Davis' Pub - Eastport, MD

This is one of my favorite stops when I go to Annapolis. The pub is almost a hundred years old, and still maintains a small community vibe.

On Friday afternoon, I had their special - the grilled mahi sandwich. This was the best mahi I had had in years. Juicy, cooked to perfection, and tasty. Their shoestring fries are the only fries I really like. The special was so good, I bought it again on Saturday.

My wife and I went back for dinner on Saturday. We ordered their fried pickles, always a winning app for my wife. She had the Old Bay shrimp - it met expectations. We finished with a piece of their Oreo cheesecake - the cheesecake was good, but I could have done without the little dollop of icing or frosting on top. It added nothing to the flavor of the dish.

I will always recommend Davis' Pub - their food is great, and their prices are surprisingly reasonable. Their beer selection is also good - they have a decent number of taps with some seasonal rotations, and a varied bottle selection. If you're headed to Annapolis, stretch your legs and walk across the bridge to Davis'.

I love salty, fat, raw oysters, and since the oyster fishery died off from parasites in Oyster, Virginia, I have found nothing to replace them of anywhere near the size and quality. Fortunately, just three weeks ago, the local seafood store, Richards, in Churchville, Maryland, had Salt Pond Oysters on hand, $16 a dozen, however, they featured a BOGO deal, which made the price a bit more bearable. They were incredibly salty, about 1.5 inches thick and 6 to 7 inches long. OMG! Thought I died and went to heaven. Carol said they tasted almost as good as the ones we used to get from Oyster, Virginia 30 years ago. Unfortunately, Richards will not have any more until next September, but says they have no trouble obtaining them. Hope I live long enough to enjoy them again.
