Annapolis and Baltimore dining questions

KathyH | Aug 3, 2010 01:47 PM

This weekend we are leaving on a week "loop" vacation. Starting with two nights in Annapolis, two in Baltimore, two in Philly and ending with two at Musikfest in Bethlehem. It should be fun.

Usually one of the main focus of any of my vacations is food and drink. I love really good food, am comfortable in fine dining places but also nothing better than a great burger at a bar with a cold beer. Though my husband is really the beer guy.

We are starting out at Harris's for steamed crabs. May actually first go across the street to The Narrows to try one of their crab cakes as an appetizer.

From there we'll be in Annapolis for Saturday and Sunday night. Need a recommendation for a really good meal or two. We are open to anything but sushi and prefer not italian as here in NJ there are plenty of good italian restaurants. Seafood is always good.

Was tossing over Cantlers on Sunday for crabs too, just to compare to Harris's. But most likely would not prefer to get back in the car until Monday.

Monday we head to Baltimore. For lunch was tossing over a stop at G&M though I think I read that their crabcakes are not that great. May also consider wandering the Lexington market for lunch, crabcakes at Faidleys among other things. Is there any place to grab a beer in the market? The third option would be Obrycki's for steamed crabs, interested in seeing the differance that their black pepper spices make vs old bay.

Once in Baltimore my sister and her husband will be joining us. There will end any fine dining. Otherwise I'd go to Charleston for dinner. To say they are not foodies is putting it mildly. My sister doesn't eat italian, burgers, seafood and pretty much anything with spices or flavor. Her husband is frugal. So we'll probably low key it for those two nights.

She does want to go to Cafe Hon for lunch one day. I want to stop by Dangerously Delicious Pies for a treat.

I wanted to go to Brewer's Art for dinner, but think it may be too "weird" for her and too expensive for him.

I know, I know, but they are family and this is my sister's first vacation in a long time so I can be flexible.

In Baltimore looking for casual places where I can still get good food for dinner.

Okay, I know I've been rambling but any suggestions with any of my questions above?

All input greatly appreciated.
