Each day, Captain Vince Meyer and his crew set sail aboard the Brittany Lynn to trawl the bay for crabs. The best of their catch makes its way back to Vince's Crab House, where the kitchen staff transforms the fresh seafood into a menu representative of the Maryland coast. Jumbo lump crab cakes and clam strips set the stage for entrées of flounder, orange roughy, and fried rockfish, but the sandwiches need no introduction. And they shouldn't—not when they're topped with fried oysters or soft-shell crab and served with a tall, refreshing glass of seawater.

Benchwarmers Pub bustles with the raucous cheers from Ravens fans watching the game on wall-mounted TVs intermingled with clinking pint glasses and ambient tunes from the Megatouch jukebox. Here patrons gather to throw back brews while snacking from a menu of classic pub food. The cooks whip up baskets of crispy fried pickles and wings smothered in fixings ranging from mild honey-barbecue to spicy 3-Mile Island sauce. Heartier fare includes half-pound cheeseburgers, quarter-pound Nathan's hot dogs, and barbecue pulled pork piled on pretzel rolls.

When they're not glued to the TV or filling their bellies, patrons can challenge one another to a friendly game of pool. Benchwarmers Pub also plays host to live DJ sets and weekly karaoke sessions, during which patrons can show support for their favorite team by belting out every song on the Rudy soundtrack.
