The sun is shining, the temperature is getting warmer, Covid restrictions are easing up and it is a perfect time to dine on the water. Southern Maryland has restaurants that offer great food and beautiful views.

Over the next few weeks, I will give you restaurant locations for St. Mary’s County, Calvert County and Charles County. Some of these are crab houses, some are in marinas, and some offer fine dining. Check out their Facebook pages and/or websites for additional information.
