Southern Maryland: Waldorf to Piney Point Sun, 05/27/12 8:49 PM (permalink)
This weekend we went to St. Mary's County MD via Annapolis and Waldorf.
Here's some regional foods we found and tried:
Old Bay Cocktail Sauce
Dixie BBQ
Crabcakes
Fried Oysters
Blackened Rockfish Sandwich
Crabs
Stuffed Ham Sandwich (super-regional specialty, hard to find)
Hush Puppies dripped with honey
Homemade Potato Chips with Bay Seasoning
Red Velvet Cake
 
Sort of Surf and Turf or……... Bay and Hay!

    Nice combo of traditional southern food and Chesapeake Bay seafood.

      Oh, my favs were the BBQ and the oyster sandwich from Accokeek MD
       
      and the rockfish from St. George's Island,
       
      where I sit right now, the Potomac in front, a creek from Chesapeake Bay behind.

        Sounds like plenty of good eats to pack in to one weekend! It's been too many years since I have visited the area, we mostly travel to New Mexico or Northern Minnesota but I think it's time for a east coast visit again!

          I was surprised at the variety. Frankly I was disappointed by the stuffed ham, a hyper-local speciality. But the oysters, rockfish, hush puppies with honey, and BBQ were delish. It was an interesting area, with Chesapeake bay and many tributaries all around, sailboats, old colonial architecture and history, too. A nice weekend trip. We stayed at St. George's Island, with direct water views on each side of the hotel.

            Too bad you did post any pix.  I first visited Piney Point about 55 years ago (a guess) and I returned again only about 8 years ago.  That drive to St George's is some trip with water on both sides.

            On the last visit the wife and I shared some shrimp and I ordered some oysters.  They brought out the oysters steamed and when I looked disappointed, they realized I expected them raw.  They left the steamed ones anyway and also brought me a dozen raw.  55 years ago there was an old hotel and I think my parents had some history there. We stayed a night or two in the hotel even though it was closed.  I remember communal bathrooms and chamber pots.  I wish I could remember more. If I go back I'd like to get a tour of the SIU facility there.
