Those are moments you head to the bay. These are moments I head to Deale.
It’s a cute little town in itself, set on a scalloped inlet of the Chesapeake Bay. Full of darling homes and piers and boats, it’s picturesque.
It may seem like your lost driving through residential neighborhoods, but you’ll find the local favorite, Skipper’s Pier sitting at the end of the road with a parking lot that is often overflowing, so you just backtrack a little and park at the Marina. It’s ok.
The food is really solid. Delicious and hearty, you’ll leave stuffed after scarfing down generous portions and falling for dessert.
The seafood buffet offers a really nice variety of fish all cooked differently. I love the marinated shrimp and salmon. The cheesy grits are delicious. My husband enjoyed the mussels – another favorite among friends who recommended this place to us.
The crab flatbread is enough for a meal and the salads are full of goodies.
The service is excellent. The outdoor seating is at picnic tables where you can pick apart your crabs during crab season and not worry about the mess. It’s pretty along the water.
We occupied three tables during our stay – the first we left early because of smokers nearby, but our waitress was fabulous and moved us quickly to a quiet table at the end of the deck. Later in the evening we wanted dessert, but it was cold, so we moved inside for the rest of our time. The waitress was obliging even though it was busy. Everyone was polite.
This is a place we’ll return to.
