Bay Hundred Restaurant & Tiki Bar

( – Tilghman Island, Maryland

How I heard of this place: When we checked in to our own little Inn at Knapps Narrows, we requested some recommendations for great eateries in our corner of the Chesapeake and were offered this as the Islands best.

Type of cuisine: A fisherman’s paradise with soft shell crabs, fresh caught fish, steaks for the hearty food contenders and house-made pastas to suit all diners.

Ambiance: “Experience fine dining in the agreeable latitudes of Tilghman Island On the Eastern Shore of Maryland featuring some of the finest cuisine in the area. Dine by the water or in our air-conditioned dining room with spectacular views of the narrows and local watermen in the scenic surroundings. Whether you are a guest at nearby Knapps Narrows Marina or just travelling in the area, Bay Hundred Restaurant is sure to satisfy everyone in your party.” We arrived and were welcomed by cushy pink benches set against seafoam green walls and doors in a mini lobby/waiting area, coat hangars and childrens high chairs available at the ready. One long seafoam hallway leads to the restaurant restrooms, whilst tiled floors take us through the window-encased dining room and onto the extensive, covered outdoor patio. A small fish pond immediately ahead of the bay creates a sense of peace and tranquility as one heads away from the parking area and looks out to the piers and boats moored ahead. The blue tiki bar to our right, we were seated and ready to place our orders.

Bay 100 Soft Shell Crabs

What I ordered: To start, Chris was eager to place an order for Fresh Calamari ($8) served with marinara and an Asian dipping sauce on the side. One plastic cup with my Shirley Temple ($2) and a large, plastic Coco-Cola glass for Chris’s Cranberry Juice ($2.50), and we were ready to tackle the menu. While the regular seafood was tempting, the daily specials immediately wrapt our attention. One order for the Soft Shell Crabs ($26) served with the daily starch: garlic mashed potatoes and vegetable: zucchini sautee with onions, and a side salad of mixed greens with tomato, onion and cucumber topped with the house special orange vinaigrette, and a second of the baked Salmon ($21) served in a pool of dill butter and the same sides. Chris selected a side Caesar salad over the mixed greens. No birthday weekend dinner is complete without cake, and this celebration of our getaway was no different! One triple fudge chocolate cake, with layers of moist chocolate cake and thick fudge, topped with a thick caramel fudge frosting; it’s a good thing the slice was miniature and our bellies full.

What I loved: The fudge cake. Whoa.

Why I loved it: Comfortable and easy setting with a beautiful view of the marina and the gorgeous Chesapeake as we watched the sun set through the rain drops.

Cost: Average to high ($15 – $26 per dinner entree)
