    Spinnakers was an upscale place with nothing for kids to eat (We had two of our grandsons there, and for one of them I was reduced to asking for plain pasta with no sauce, and even then, they couldn't resist putting cheese on it, which was OK) and expensive but good 'new age' food. We had a reduced rate coupon because we have a slip at the marina.

    Unfortunately in 2003, Hurricane Isabel damaged Spinnakers extensively. They were trying to remodel it when we left at the end of October 2003, but eventually they decided to starting over from scratch. I think that's a good idea - the old building didn't take any advantage of being on the water.

    We lunched at the new Spinnakers several times. They tried hard, but they really didn't have their act together yet. In the old days the food was good, but the place was closed in. Now the place looks marvelous, but the food was just not very good.

    So the restaurant closed. Now it is open again under new management and the food is better. We went in Sept 2012 and it was pizza night, but we had the regular menu. Actually we had the "Lite Fare" menu. Bob had a crabcake for $12.99 and I had the fish of the day (rockfish) for $10.49. We could have had one side with it and we both had Maryland crab soup. Then we both had room for bread pudding for dessert.

    Favorite Dish: We went up for lunch and it was quite satisfactory and cheap. We came into the marina late on Thursday, and ate dinner there.

    They had two soups on the menu - Maryland crab (which is a clear spicy vegetable soup and not the cream of crab) and chicken noodle. Over the chicken noodle it said "Soup of the Day". I thought the Soup of the Day would be a different soup than the ones on the menu, but Bob had the chicken noodle soup anyway, and the liver and onions. I said I would have spinach salad and a shrimp salad sandwich because I didn't think I was very hungry.

    Maybe the kitchen had been going to close, because they had to boil an egg for the spinach salad, which took 15 minutes, and I got it last. All of the food was very good.

    While we were waiting, I decided that I was hungrier than I had thought, and would have dessert. I got some kind of lemon pie - it was fluffy and tangy and good. Bob had rice pudding which the chef had made that day. It looked good although he said it didn't have any raisins in it.

    Courtney's from the water in 2008 4 more images

    If Schieble's isn't open in the summer then Courtney's will be.

    Courtney's is a little different. It is basically a one woman operation in conjunction with a camp ground. The woman is a VERY good cook, but she does all the 'heavy lifting'. He gives you the menus and sometimes takes your order, and then goes back and sits down. She cooks it, and serves it. If you want waiters hovering around filling your water glass, this won't work for you.

    Favorite Dish: The soup is good, and I especially like the blueberry crumble and ice cream dessert.

    bluecrab writes very enthusiastically:
    "I recommend Courtney's if you want for good seafood in a relaxed atmosphere. The crabs are excellent, her Maryland crab soup is wicked, fresh fish entrees are well prepared with generous portions, and her fruit cobblers are legendary"

    Chart of Smith Creek

    by grandmaR Updated Jun 11, 2003

    Smith Creek is a very protected creek off the St. Mary's River, which is the first large river on the north side of the Potomac after you turn in from the Chesapeake. You must be sure to zig and zag through the markers. If you go on the wrong side of G3, you will be aground as there is a sandbar that comes out from St. Inigores Neck there. Then you turn around the R4 (Red 4) and from then on it's pretty straightforward.

    The place marked Wynne has a headboat, a motel, a campground and two restaurants, but it does not have a post office - technically that's still Ridge. The road that goes to Wynne is Wynne Road.

    Equipment: In addition to a marina (with the red route line going to it - Point Lookout Marina) there are many places up the coves to anchor in protected coves. You can either go up the the left fork or the right fork (Jutland Creek) or you can anchor across from the marina.
