Annapolis/Eastern Shore Restaraunts
My wife and I are traveling to Annapolis and the Eastern Shore of Maryland from Philadelphia (St. Michaels area) and we are looking for recommendations for lunch and dinner. Any recommendations are appreciated.
For Annapolis do you have a price range? I really like Carrol's Creek for seafood with a nice view. But it is on the upper side. For dinner in Annapolis I really like O'Leary's, Tsunami, again Carrol's. I have had a nice meals at Rockfish, Harry's and Lewnes are all good spots. If you are going before New Years you should try to get to the Inn at Easton before it closes it is very good.
For lunch in St. Micheals I have liked the key lime cafe (or breakfast). There are a ton of nice restaurants you could probably search this board for a recent threads on those. Good luck.
Annies on Kent Island at Kent Narrows is usually very good for either lunch or dinner. A new place in Stevensville just east of the bay bridge called Rustico is excellent for lunch or dinner. Off of rt. 8, italian food with a flair!! Annapolis has many nice places. Lewnes is great for steaks.
My favorite Annapolis place is the Yin Yankee, 105 Main St. Great food, can't go wrong with any fish dish or specials. On par with several Center City Philly Restaurants I've been to. Also in Annapolis Joss Sushi, also on Main, walk towards the State House from Yin Yankee. Great Sushi in a casual atmosphere at a great price. Have fun!
In St Michael's, Bistro St Michael and 209 Talbot are good but not remarkable. The Inn at Easton , however, is one of the best restos in the state.. Don't miss it (it was one of Johnny Apple's last columns for the times--a rave review). There are other well-regarded places in Easton, but I have not tried them.
I second Bistro St.Michaels -- excellent option in the area. The Inn at Easton is great -- however, they are closing. NYE is the last night. Out of the Fire and Mason's are other good choices in Easton -- both are open for lunch and dinner. Restaurant Local at the Tidewater Inn has received good press. Pope's Tavern in Oxford could also be worth looking at for dinner.
I've eaten at Restaurant Local and Bistro St. Michael's -- both are good. For real Eastern Shore flavor (and cheap eats), stop at Holly's. They have oyster stew if you ask for it. In addition Lisa's Small Plates is great and has bands on the weekends.
For Annapolis, I'd go for Joss (sushi), Lewne's (steak), OB Prime (steak), Boat Yard Bar and Grill (casual, sailing-themed).
