Now called the Shore Thing Restaurant, delicious seafood, great for kids too. Fast and friendly service. Well priced, great view, went here on a Thursday night for dinner, ate on the outside deck with a beautiful view of Annapolis basin.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are currently trying to get TripAdvisor to change the name of the business. :) So glad that you enjoyed your visit. We look forward to seeing you again.

A great place for lunch and dinner using local products from the sea and the land. Lots of choice and do plan on having dessert. They are all home made and the coconut cream and chocolate pie are hard to pass up.
