Calvert House Inn
After admiring the lush gardens and historical exhibits of the stately and new renovated Riversdale House, sightseers often stroll the few blocks down to Calvert House Inn for fine dining. Built to pay homage to the hospitality and finery that the Riversdale House was renowned for, the elegant eatery now celebrates its 50th anniversary serving fine seafood to locals and tourists and has garnered praise from local news outlets. Pots bubble and hiss within the kitchen, where chefs fold oysters, shrimp, and scallops into a variety of classic dishes and craft their signature Maryland-style crab cakes from seasoned jumbo lump crab. The versatile chefs also extend their culinary expertise to a variety of land-grown specialties, including freshly ground burgers and premium steaks.
Out in the cheerful dining rooms, diners clink glasses of white wine in intimate booths, their faces illuminated by the glimmer of chandeliers. And to keep the mood convivial, these rooms play host to special events, including karaoke parties, Caribbean music nights, and performances from live bands. On Sundays, brunch diners raise glasses of OJ while live jazz music mingles through the air.
It's high quality, fresh ingredients prepared simply, but competently.Richard I., Yelp, 10/3/12
