When laid out item by item, Lucky Inn's lunch and dinner menus could possibly span the entire length of the Great Wall of China. The lengthy lists keep the eatery’s chefs busy crafting favorites such as general tso’s chicken, beef with broccoli, and shrimp in garlic sauce, as well as noodle dishes of the lo mein, chow mein, and chow fun varieties. Meat-free fare arrives in the form of orange-flavored tofu and sautéed snow peas, harvested by ski instructors during slow days.
Conrad's Crabs puts the locally caught moneycrabs where its customers' ravenous mouths are as they live up to their "We catch our own" slogan. Waterman Tony Conrad brings in as much seafood as Poseidon allows, from crabs to fresh whole fish (both market price). A fusion of a seafood market and a carryout restaurant, Conrad's has a full menu of locavores' delights. Seafood can be purchased raw or steamed to order, with the fresh-caught fish and crustaceans going for market price daily. Long-standing selections include Conrad's Steamer Combo (six each of jumbo shrimp, oysters, and clams with a pound of mussels, $22.50) and entrees such as fried hard crab ($13.50), six fried oysters ($13.50), and a pint of Maryland crab soup ($5).
For the past five decades, Supano’s has been luring patrons inside with a satisfying blend of music and meat. Whether by Frank Sinatra impersonators, jazz musicians, or a karaoke singer who just stubbed her toe, live tunes supplement the sounds of knives slicing into 20-ounce new york strip steaks and forks sliding into chunks of meaty lasagna. Supano's look is just as classic as its menu. Nestled in an aged brick building with a cobblestone façade, the restaurant emits an old-world vibe complete with warm lighting and photos of famous singers.
Below Supano's Steakhouse is Supano Zone. The underground sports bar fits the mold of a dream man-cave, with LED TVs that show all college games and pro-sports events. A shuffleboard table, dartboards, and a pool table welcome co-ed competition, which onlookers can cheer on while slurping down beers. The bar has long been a cherished place for hosting celebrations: after Baltimore hosted the first Grand Prix, the pro drivers lounged at Supano's and even left behind some memorabilia that is still on display.
Situated on Broadway Pier, Shuckers of Fells Point's waterfront patio affords diners a splendid view of the nearby harbor. The site complements Shuckers' bounty of succulent seafood, such as handcrafted jumbo lump crab cakes, Atlantic salmon filet glazed with homemade bourbon sauce, and piles of steamed clams from the raw bar. Along with fresh catches, the culinary team crafts American bar staples such as hand-cut, chargrilled New York strip steaks and fried mozzarella moons, a tastier alternative to fried hunks of moon rock. Just as seafood complements Shuckers' exterior, American cuisine complements its sports bar interior, where running backs dive into the end zone on 40 flat-screen TVs throughout the dining area.
With its sand-colored walls, crisp white pillars, and indoor waterfall, The Seasoned Mariner’s interior mimics the calm surroundings the waterfront that sits right outside. Perched along Bear Creek, the restaurant keeps its doors open year-round to capsize hunger with surf such as steamed crabs and seafood platters and turf including burgers and steaks. The creekside decor that surrounds those dishes swells into an elevated dining room, too, where floor-to-ceiling windows afford views of the water and sailboats playing Marco Polo. During warmer months, diners may also take their meals on a pier surrounded by palm trees and exotic flowers.
