As the golden sheen of sunset drapes the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, the flickering flames of a fireplace and candlelit tables illuminate the dining room of Alexander's on the Bay. Every table in the restaurant is within sight of windows overlooking the bay, and the outdoor deck basks in the fresh ocean air wafting from the beach. The scenery complements Alexander's on the Bay’s extensive selection of appetizers, soups, build-your-own sand castles, and entrees, many of which include catches culled from the Chesapeake Bay. For palates craving seafood alternatives, owner and chef Denice Shafiee and her culinary crew prepare a handful of succulent eats such as sautéed chicken breast encrusted with crushed cashews and certified Angus beef steaks. Along with serving diners nightly for more than 25 years, Alexander's on the Bay frequently hosts wedding receptions and catered events.
