Saturday was a lazy day for us, and that also lead to Me not wanting to cook dinner. I had seen many people post about Happy Hour and nights out at Sunset Cove, but I also knew they catered to families as well. After doing a little research on-line we headed off to dinner. The restaurant is located in Bowleys Quarters, Maryland for those unfamiliar with this area if you don’t like the Chesapeake Bay then don’t visit here. The restaurant is actually located at Maryland Marina, so you are surrounded by boats and the Cheasapeake. We arrived around 5pm and were seated out on the “beach” right away, plenty of picnic tables and tiki bars all around. I wish we had known that the water adjacent to the restaurant is open for swimming! My girls got in with clothes on as it is about 4ft deep with soft sand bottom, our next visit they are wearing bathing suits for sure. There are no specials on Saturdays but they do have live music from 6-10, we loved the band playing for the night “Under the Covers”. If you are seated on the beach during prime hours there is a 2.5hour time limit for your table, that is actually really generous. We never felt rushed at all.
When my toes are in the sand I want a cocktail, I went with a creamsicle crush. Loved it! We began our meal with the Crab Nachos (come on I live in Maryland, I love crab anything). These were really good! The cheese melted on top had Old Bay cooked into it not just sprinkled around. The serving was plentiful and we chowed down. Next up main courses, I had the Rockos Tacos, a huge filet of rockfish (again it’s the state fish here of course I ordered this) grilled to perfection and served with mango salsa and wasabi cucumber dressing. You get 2 tacos per order and 2 sides of your choice. This is a HUGE meal for $12.99. Oh yeah I forgot to mention for a place on the water the prices are fantastic. My oldest daughter ordered 1lb of steamed mussels for dinner, they comes in a white wine broth with literally a loaf of French bread to soak up all the yummy sauce. I wouldn’t know how they taste because they were gone by the time I asked. Miss M got her usual a hot dog and chips, yeah she wont be my food critic. Hubby went with pork chops, who the heck orders pork chops when you eat on a beach? He said they were good and loves the mashed potatoes. All in all a really great meal with the perfect Maryland Summer atmosphere. As they say on the website “It’s a stay-cation every day at Sunset Cove”, I would agree!
