I saw a brief mention of the Severn Inn in a thread yesterday and so off we went to lunch today. This place is glorious – great food, nice décor, on the water, and a killer view of the Naval Academy.
Lunch was delicious from start to finish. The crab bisque had a wonderful buttery flavor. The scallops were large, flavorful and succulent, in some type of tomato based cream sauce that didn’t overwhelm them. My trout entrée was moist and grilled just right, seasoned lightly with oil and (I’m guessing) maybe rosemary. For dessert, Belgium chocolate ganache cake was more ganache than cake, while the warm carrot cake had a panna cotta side in place of the sweet icing you would expect. We didn’t have ice cream, but the menu indicated it was provided by Giffords of DC.
Older threads on this restaurant are negative on the food and service. The service today was great in all respects and so was the food. Not inexpensive, but decidedly high quality.
If you are traveling to this restaurant from Glen Burnie or Severna Park, it is a simple ride down Route 2 (at the Route 50 split, follow the signs to the Naval Academy – you avoid Route 50 altogether). It’s at the foot of the Naval Academy bridge. A great view of Annapolis without the Annapolis traffic.
