RE: Stoney's In Southern MD
I've been to the Stoney's in Broomes Island, MD on a number of occasions and it's one of my favorite seafood houses. The crab cakes are excellent; I'd give them an 8.5 - 9 out of 10. Their other seafood dishes are very good, as well. If you click on the "search" function at the top of the page and enter "Stoney's" as a key word, you'll get a lot of feedback about the place from various posters. This segment, from one of my earlier posts, pretty well sums up how I feel about the place.
Every summer, my wife and I take a weekday off and make the trip from Washington, DC to Stoney's in Broomes Island, MD for lunch. We sit outside by the water and have their excellent crab cakes, jumbo hard shell crabs, mushrooms stuffed with crab meat, a couple of brews, and the very good key lime pie for dessert. We then drive about 15 miles north to Breezy Point State Park, a beach situated on the Chesapeake Bay, to lie about for the rest of the afternoon, reading, listening to music and looking out over the water. Then, on the way back to DC, we'll usually stop at a roadside produce stand and buy some locally grown corn and tomatoes to take home. If there's a better way to spend a summer day, I haven't found it yet!
We'll be going again next month!
