When it comes to seafood preparation, its seems like the culinary minds at Fifer?s Seafood have thought of just about everything. Every cooking method is fair game?broiling, deep-frying, steaming, and serving it up raw?as long as it enhances the natural sweetness and subtle flavor of each ingredient. They pile platters to the rafters with hand-peeled shrimp, flaky filets of haddock, and quarter-pound crab cakes, and they shuck fresh oysters and clams to pair with classic accoutrements and a squirt of lemon. Seafood even adds an extra punch to some of Fifer?s other options, such as Angus beef burgers crowned with housemade crab dip.
To complement these maritime feasts, bartenders serve pours of liquor and wine behind a tiki-style bar, which also features more than 15 beers on tap. Drinks in hand, diners gather around the dining room?s solid-oak tables, which are surrounded by aquatic d?cor and high-definition televisions broadcasting sports.
Though it has only been open since February 2013, The Firehouse Pub has already established itself as a place with its own traditions. Free plays on the jukebox ring throughout the bar every Monday; on Wednesday and Friday, karaoke brings in the dulcet tones of patrons belting out their favorite songs. Each Thursday, corner pockets consume stripes and solids during free pool games in the billiards corner, where hanging flat-screen TVs keep players abreast of the latest sports and competitive woodworking coverage. The same goes for the TVs hanging above the bar, where bartenders pour wine, mixed drinks, shots, and domestic and imported beers. The rest of the time, The Firehouse Pub welcomes an ever-changing lineup of live DJs and musicians to its main stage.
The allure of Bill Bateman's Bistro increases exponentially with a glance at the wide-ranging menu. Locally lauded for its superlative wings, Bill Bateman's Bistro's offers glazed poultry in a variety of sizes and sauces. Combine cuisines with 10 ($8.49) of the Sweet Thai Chili Wings, or firmly uphold winged tradition with 30 original buffalo wings ($22.99). Fifty Wings from Hell ($36.99) will sate the fire-deprived tongues of fearless wing devourers and can be ordered via a Ouija board that until recently was just a game. The shrimp-melt wrap ($10.99), jalapeñoed Heat Wave Burger ($8.99), and grilled-chicken-topped California Salad ($10.99) are but a few of the numerous bites capable of complementing the various cold draft beers. For the full rundown of possible palate pleasers, see the complete menu for each participating location: Parkville, Severna Park, Glen Burnie, and Reisterstown.
Outside Severna Park Taphouse, you can hear the clink of a horseshoe, or the thud-and-slide of a little bean bag sinking into a board during a game of cornhole. Inside, the beer bar proudly displays a huge array of craft beer bottlecaps and labels along its bar, where the staff pours cold ones from 28 rotating taps and pops the tops off of more than 75 bottled selections. Proudly a family-friendly spot, the kitchen serves up a kids menu alongside adult-sized burgers, blackened rockfish tacos, and tangy homemade buffalo-chicken dip.
