The oyster po-boy was delicious. The oysters were the best I had on our trip. I never would have thought this in a gas station.

We've had some great meals here, but especially love Tuesday nights when they offer as their "special" roast turkey with all the trimmings. It has to be tasted to be believed. It's become a regular date for us. In fact Tuesday nights are now Turkey Night. They also have a wonderful selection of candy and a nice wine selection. Their... More

Stopped here for fuel and restroom break after the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. They have a gift shop and restaurant as well. A nice wine selection and tons of novelties. The restaurant was busy with smiling faces.

She took amazing care of us. Also, all of the fish was fresh and caught in the Bay. The chicken noodle soup and... More

Pricey, but again, this WAS NOT a supermarket frozen months/years/decades ago heavily breaded square slab of tasteless fish.

We told our server, she offered to take it back... More
