Lunch in Cambridge, MD

We will be heading down to the Chesapeake Hyatt on Thursday and need a nice spot of lunch before we check in. Are there any fun/good restaurants nearby?

    Try Bistro Poplar in downtown Cambridge.
    I had a lovely dinner there while staying at the Hyatt for a girls weekend a couple of years ago.
    I remember the Pommes Frites being awesome! Nice casual atmosphere too.

      Thank you lisaoceancity. That menu looks amazing. However, I am looking for a much more casual place. We used to go to Spicers Family Restaurant for their shrimp baskets but I see now that they are closed!

        The bar/crabshack over by the docks is pretty good - snappers?. Hyatt probably has the best food though

          I'm heading to Cambridge in July. Where did you end up eating? Looking for some recommendations as well. Thanks.

            It's been a year or two since I was there, but we've enjoyed getting steamed crabs to go from a little fish market in town -- sorry I don't remember the name. Then we'd take them over to the picnic area at nearby Long Wharf Park. The park is right on the water. Makes for a great meal and a beautiful view.
