All The Good Food in the Chesapeake Bay

Since Shady Side, MD is on the Chesapeake Bay, one would expect good seafood. Well, you are right! Here are a few possibilities for when you get hungry after looking at birds, fishing, boating and checking out the local scene.

Brick House
1534 Cedarhurst Road
Shady Side, MD 20764

This is fresh New American cuisine. The restaurant is in a colonial brick house located right in front of a small development. The location may be a little unexpected but the food is what you do expect – surf and turf. The seafood is very fresh and the steaks are prepared perfectly. If you are someone who gets hungry late, this place stays open for night owls. This is a dinner place, hours are 4p-11p and closed Monday & Tuesday. Make sure to check the website or call.

Driftwood Diner
1468 Snug Harbor Road
Shady Side, MD 20764

A beautiful little upscale diner that serves breakfast all day. They offer fresh American cuisine and also dessert menu options. They have had consistent impressive reviews over how good the food is for years. Recently they underwent new management, and it has improved the service end. Driftwood Diner has many rave remarks over the breakfast items and somehow now they have gotten better. If you are in the area, drift into Driftwood Diner – and eat a cupcake for me.

Corner Grill
6127 Shady Side Road
Shady Side, MD 20764

The corner bar where everyone knows your name – Corner Grill has live music, karaoke and regular pub cuisine, including some pizza/calzone options. Oh, yeah, it is also a sports bar. This place is popular with the locals and is a part of the community. They reach out when needed.

They hired a new cook for the food recently and he made his own spin on the menu items. It is a big hit and doing well. Even those who don’t go to bars normally, order the food to go from the Corner Grill. That is a pretty good compliment!
