Leonard Copsey's

29004 Three Notch Rd., Mechanicsville, MD - (301) 884-9529

You can buy bushels of clams and oysters, ready to eat or to cook, and you can buy pints or quarts of excellent hot crab soup.

There is nothing particularly charming about Leonard Copsey's place, but the seafood you buy here - either raw or ready-cooked - is exemplary.

Note the boatload of mollusk shells under Leonard Copsey's sign.  In this region, many parking lots are paved with shells in lieu of gravel.

You know you are in crab country when you see a dapper crustacean such as this one, painted on the side of a barn wall near Leonard Copsey's.
