But first, make sure you book your stay with the Flag House Inn, we offer a great location only 2 blocks from city dock, included parking, yummy breakfast, king beds and en suite bathroom. Book your stay by clicking here.
To get to Kentmorr, go over the 450/Naval Academy bridge, get on US 50 east, go over the Bay Bridge (hint, stay to right through tolls to avoid driving against oncoming traffic when 2 way operation in place) , take the first exit (MD Rt 8), head south about 5 1/2 miles, look for signs to Kentmorr, drive back towards the Bay past a number of homes bordering a grass airstrip, and follow around to the restaurant. If parking looks tight, just keep driving past the marina, there is plenty of parking further back.
Once there, walk along the docks, you’ll see a wide variety of people docking up their boat or have a look at the Bay Bridge in the distance – you can even see Annapolis and Greenbury Point in the distance!
When you’re ready the hostess will seat you (we got lucky with an outdoors table). You can order steamed crabs or any of a large number of apps and entrees. Be sure to get the daily specials sheet, we found some great items: Crab cake/ soft shell platter ; blackened rockfish tacos, and one of my all time favorite desserts – peach cobbler (see pics!)
We also spent some time at Dirty Dave’s Tiki Bar, part of the beach in front of the restaurant. Dip your toes in the Bay, walk along the beach, or like us, order a “Crush” – It’s a popular local summer drink; you can order orange, grapefruit, peach, or mango. If it’s a busy weekend, you may need to pay a $5 admission.
All in all, we had a relaxing late summer afternoon over on the Eastern Shore. We found out about Kentmorr from the owners Dave & Tammy Harper, who had stayed with us several weeks ago. Growing up, Marty spent many weekends driving down Route 8 to Romancoke to go crabbing, and we never knew about this place. What a gem!
(Full disclosure – we did not receive, nor give, any discounts. We purely want to bring you the best experiences the greater Annapolis area has to offer!)
