    My swordfish, and creme brulee 2 more images

    When we had our boat over in Blackstone Marina, and we came in from a sail or after we'd been down working on the boat all day, we would sometimes go to this restaurant to eat. It has a pier, so you can come to eat by boat, but I'm not sure our boat is a shallow enough draft. There is also a boat ramp next to the restaurant.

    It has changed hands several times over the years. Sometimes the food is good and sometimes not.

    The restaurant looks east over the creek. When we came back to the marina, we looked for the big tank painted with a crab on it.

    Favorite Dish: I saw their advertisement on the local weather channel, so we went back for our night out. This restaurant has become a very expensive one. They gave us cheese and crackers to start. I had the special (swordfish steak), steamed zuchini and a salad, and Bob had the scallops. We drank iced tea, and I also had a wonderful creme brulee for dessert. Our bill without a tip was $49.30

    My swordfish steak was very good, but it was served on a plastic plate, and the iced tea was in plastic glasses.

    From the internet site on St. Mary's Co.

    Fresh seafood, steak, steamed crabs. Banquet room holds 60. Waterfront dining, outside dining and carryouts available. Open Memorial Day thru September, 7 days, closed Monday's October thru May.

    Blackstone Marina 4 more images

    There are two marinas in this area - Weeks and Blackstone. Neither one of them take transients.

    We stayed at Blackstone for a year. It is very convenient to our house and very protected, but the finger pier is too short for our boat. They do not carry fuel (go over to Calvert Marina - they have the best fuel prices), and they have pumpout, but we have to go in at high tide. They do not have a travel lift large enough to haul our boat.

    Weeks is the next marina up the creek. It does not seem to have a web page.

    There is a boat ramp next to Clark's Landing Restaurant. It is not a public ramp - you have to pay for the use of it.

    You can also anchor across from Blackstone in a lovely deep water cove.

    Equipment: Les Gould is the owner/ manager and he lives on the premises. The marina is open 7 days a week 9am - 5pm.

    On the marina web page it says, "Protected deep water harbor
    "Slips accommodate boats 20 to 60 feet in length
    "Covered slips feature full length catwalks
    "All slips provide electricity (30 and 50 amp service) and potable water
    "Safe convenient parking at all times."
