Though they all share the same name, all eight of McLoone's Restaurants' locations have their own interior charm. With dining rooms adjacent to off-track betting facilities, McLoone’s Woodbridge Grille and McLoone’s Bayonne Grille are peppered with an energetic ambiance that fills their brightly colored spaces. Televisions at every table keep diners abreast of the results of each race, and the big screens plastered around the restaurants also broadcast NFL, MLB, and college games. Like an indecisive bride’s wedding, each location’s bistro-style menu includes both casual and elegant dishes, from seasoned thai chicken wings and Black Angus burgers to new york strip steak and mango salmon.

Holding up port in the Annapolis City Marina for more than 25 years, Carrol's Creek serves up finely grilled steaks and fresh local seafood with a lively dockside view of the Spa Creek harbor. The lunch menu presents a star line-up of aquatic delicacies such as a glamorous herb-encrusted rockfish fillet roasted with sautéed baby spinach, lovely lady jumbo crab lumps, and a tomato pesto risotto ($18), or a fried oyster po' boy sandwich made of pearl-less mollusks fried fresh and served on a roll with horseradish aioli ($11.50). Dinner allows a repeat performance of lunchtime favorites mixed with new appetizers such as Acapulco-style ceviche, which combines tilapia with onions, tomatoes, avocado, and fresh cilantro ($9), and caesar salad for two, made tableside so diners can witness the ritualistic slaughter of romaine hearts before devouring them with special dressing and freshly grated imported cheese ($15). Maryland jumbo crab-cakes are bursting with garlic-and-herb potatoes ($30), and a grilled filet mignon comes slathered with caramelized sweet onions, wild mushrooms, and a merlot glace to satisfy the largest land-loving appetites ($29).

A charming, two-story octagonal structure that used to be a light house rests above the waters of a harbor on Chesapeake Bay, drawing in visitors with the sounds of laughter and live music on weekends and during live Jazz brunch, as well as the scents of seasonal seafood and gourmet regional cuisine. Sam's executive chef Jim Wilder hitches the menu to the changing seasons to create an ever-changing slate of contemporary American seafood infused with contemporary influences. Guests make pilgrimages by land or by water to sample the restaurant's Sunday brunches of signature crab benedict or lobster mac and cheese, or to savor dinners of fresh Maryland rockfish, lobster rolls, and roasted duck breast.

Sips of wines and nibbles of Maryland crab cakes pair with the live strums of acoustic guitars. Inside, walls decorated with rustic wine crates, a full-service bar, and waterfront windows frame each forkful with an elegant, yet approachable surrounding.
