The Old Bay Steamer is not a place to go for a great ocean view. You have to park in the back of stinkin’ nowhere and walk a while. The water is no where in view the whole time. As a matter of fact, the sign at the hostess’s stands says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ view.” So why go there when you are in the area to see the water? One reason.
Next was the house salad served in a big bowl with only one choice of salad dressing, a wonderful house vinaigrette that settled finely at the bottom of the bowl. I had three helpings. Don’t judge me, please.
One of my kids had a hot dog. The other had the ribs. This ought to be good, I thought.
My husband and I ordered the Big Steamer. It turned out to be a big metal bowl of heads-on royal reds, oysters, clams, corn, potatoes, and crab legs. Everything in the whole bowl was so fresh that it snapped when we tore into it. Snapped, I tell you. I had never seen shrimp or crab legs snap. Usually, they are just mush and squishy shells. We ate every bit.
It was some of the best seafood we’d had all week.
She too ate it all.
