Good Eats & Good People:
Signature drinks including The Famous Mai Tai, legendary parties, authentic décor, and true island hospitality make the Tiki Bar a destination in itself.
Order like the locals do... the Drink menu is painted on the ceiling of the bar. The Orange Crush comes "highly recommended" by the crew on Marauder.
Jerry and his daughter Debbie only use the freshest ingredients in their dishes. You will love this family-owned local favorite. Words can not describe this amazing menu! Plan a stop at this favorite place of Local Southern Maryland folks.
The CD Cafe
This cozy locals spot may have a first-come first-served waiting list. If so, don't be discouraged. The food is absolutely WORTH the wait. The bar in back serves tasty cocktails ready for those waiting to take a seat at dinner. The "specials" change nightly and are highly recommended by the Captain.
Ruddy Duck Brewery
Locals love this fun, family oriented restaurant for its marriage of great food and freshly brewed beer. Award winning beer and Best Crab cakes in town!
Megalodon Adventure Charters
Uniquely situated in the most historical part of calvert cliffs the Captain and fossil guide take guests to remote beaches with only boat access. Your Captain will be full of ancient fossil history from millions of years past while your guide works with everyone to bring home your very own piece of treasure.
Patuxent River Naval Air Visitor Center
Redone completely a few years back this museum sports awesome planes, test pilot history, and some really cool flight simulators open to the public.
You'll find a mixed crowd from the elegant to the casual that are all here for a spectacular meal. Pasta is hand-made every day, fish are caught by local watermen, and premiere seafood gets flown in from the freshest sources. The menu always changes and dessert is always the best part.
Miss lori and her sons run an incredible establishment "hidden away" in Solomons, MD. Miss Lori comes in at 4am every morning to make dessert herself... and when they're gone...they're GONE. Locals know to "order dessert first." Ask the wait staff and they will set aside your choices till the end of the meal.
Calvert Marine Museum
The highlight of Southern Maryland for indoor activities. The delightful staff are full of historical information and you'll receive free cruises w/ admission The CMM shows off impressive state of the art displays, and monster aquarium with local fauna. The museum has things for all ages and interests. Locals know to always visit the otters and get on the list for lighthouse tours first thing in the morning.
Heritage Tours / Sea Glass / Sharktooth
Rachel and Simon dean are dear friends and masters of the sea. they love to take out groups for a few hours at a time for a taste of what it is like to be a crabber or a watermen. Join them for informative lesson on the boat while your "crew" get to work like a watermen and play with all the fun critters that come in over the rail. Great idea for families who are staying a long weekend.
The Grill Sergeant BBQ
Here you will find world-class BBQ from a local company. Pulled pork BBQ sandwich is our favorite. Everything here is very good and a great addition to the evening full of Tiki Bar drinks.
