Rod 'N' Reel

We ate here two times during our stay (due to convenience). The staff is wonderful and very friendly. We had a nightly special on our first visit and it was great! Two nights later we visited with a larger group and I was unimpressed with the fish tacos. The burger and the fried shrimp that my friends ordered looked AMAZING! Will try one of those next time!

Skippers Pier Restaurant & Dock Bar

Reviewed By HeleneDC - DC

The views from inside are lovely and sitting outside could not be better. Food was not as good as in the past. It ranged from mushy shrimp and Brussels sprouts to ok (very sweet) collards to outstanding avocado/tomato appetizer. Service was good, but the shrimp and sprouts are usually our favorites so disappointing meal.

Nice they have lots of options to seafood for non fish lovers.

Chesapeake Grille & Deli

Reviewed By MarkUSNA1998 - Huntingtown, Maryland

Stopped here for dinner on the way home based on its previous reviews, and will definitely make it a regular stop for the family.
Clean, great service, and a large list of choices for the family. Both my wife and I enjoyed the burgers, and the grilled chicken my youngest ate was perfect - she gobbled it up. Their buffalo chicken wrap needs some work (not sure what that sauce was, but it wasn't buffalo).
Overall it is a great half-way point between table service and fast food. So you pay a little more than Burger King, but from what I saw last night, the value is definitely there. I was very impressed with this restaurant, and will go back soon.

My husband and I were meandering up the coast and found this little sandwich shop - thanks to a local:) It was good food and great service. We enjoyed taking our lunch out to the boardwalk, sitting and watching the ocean and enjoying the day:)

JT's Kitchen

Reviewed By Melaney68 - Chesapeake Beach, Maryland

We were in the mood to support a local restaurant and have home cooked food. The prices are extremely reasonable and carry out is available.

However, I do have a few recommendations that will increase customer satisfaction. All are related to customer service. Note that our server was polite and friendly but basic needs are non-negotiable.

1. Completely and carefully wipe the tables down. Ours was sticky.
2. A placemat should be available for all patrons. (We were told they needed to order more.)
3. Provide the silverware and condiments for the meal (such as ketchup and mustard) before the food comes. Food gets cold when one has to look for the server to bring them.
4. Check the order to make sure all food was initially ordered and then delivered to the table. (One of our items was forgotten and we had to request that it be taken off the bill. I also noticed that our neighboring table was served their meals over a period of time. They could did not actually eat together.)
5. Refill ice tea and water often. (I left thirsty.)
6. Be available.
7. Clear the dirty plates away.
8. Provide a corrected receipt when a mistake is made.


I ordered the crab cake. That's all it was, a crab cake and a bun. I asked for lettuce and tomato to make it better. I would not order it again. However, the cheeseburger, the crispy onion rings, and the cheesesteak sandwiches were enjoyed immensely.

Reviewed By jhughe39 - Baltimore, Maryland

Visited for a meal on Saturday evening. Busy, but got a table quickly. Menu looked old and needed a wipe down. Ordered a frozen mango margarita, huge and delicious. Got chicken and Shrimp fajitas and Arroz Texans. Both were tasty and came out quickly. Waiter was busy but kept checking on us. They seemed to have plenty of staff on duty. Would visit again if in the area.

Off RT2 in Anne Arundel county, parking is tight but the place looks cool, it's in Friendship MD!
We got 3 pizzas to go, they were just ok nothing crazy good but OK! Huge Italian menu, pastas, salads, typical Italian place.
Very clean, I think it would be better to eat in here.

Chesapeake Market & Deli

Reviewed By jg325 - WashingtonDC

Chesapeake Market has almost anything you would need for a day on a boat. A very substantial selection of beer wine and liquor, and a lot of good food supplies. The wines are adequately priced, considering it is right outside the marina and if you need it last-minute.

We did order a breakfast sandwich, and it took forever for it to come out. The sandwich was fine, but the wait was ridiculous.

Overall, Chesapeake Market is pretty much the only game in town for this marina, but it does not disappoint.

Bowen's consistently has the best quality fresh meats around. We will only buy our prime rib from them! The sammiches are delicious, as are all the salads and fresh pies they offer. Great selection of local and boutique jarred delicacies and other fun finds.
