Rating: Fun spot on the shore
When our family drives from Washington to Philadelphia, which is generally part of the ThanksGavin tradition, we often stop at this old school Eastern Shore seafood place in Havre de Grace.
It sits right on the river, right by the train bridge.
Even in the winter, it’s a pretty nice view.
A lot of seating is on the porch.
Maryland Crab soup is a must. Slightly spicy tomato broth with vegetables and crab. Think minestrone with crab.
Cream of crab soup. It’s more fatty cousin is clam chowder, but with crab instead.
Fried local fish with tartar sauce.
The fried fish sandwich.
And the all important crab cake sandwich, one of the great American sandwiches. Available here with slaw, potato chips, etc.
This is a simple place, but it serves up some good road stop lunch — certainly way better than McDonalds!
