Though charcoal drawing was once the dominant artistic medium in America, precious few masterworks survived the realization that those early portraits could be crumpled up and used to smoke delicious stacks of ribs. Honor forgotten artists with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh seafood and homemade barbecue at Barbecue, Blues & Seafood in Glen Burnie.
The aroma of open-pit barbecue and steamed crab wafts throughout the laid-back dining room and into the outdoors at Barbecue, Blues & Seafood as chefs dish slow-cooked Southern entrees. Diners can crunch a broiled Maryland crab cake ($11.99 for a single), made with savory blue crab culled from local sources, or a hefty pound of shrimp, slowly steamed in an elegantly appointed private sauna ($16.99). Alternatively, savor the restaurant's barbecued fare, including the popular pit-beef sandwich ($8.99), and a half rack of pork ribs ($14.99), glazed with the chef's homemade brown-sugar barbecue sauce and smoked over an open pit for up to four hours, or the duration of eight Designing Women episodes.
Barbecue, Blues & Seafood welcomes families and friends with a free arcade room and large-screen televisions tuned into diners' preferred programming. During weekly events such as karaoke night or themed Rock Band night, the fun-loving staff dons cowboy hats, witch's hats, and electronic high-hat cymbals to partake in the merriment.
Origin Stories: Hammy Anniversary
As a small child, Jason Farrell toddled through his family's seafood diner, Marley's Seafood and Subs, acquiring the nautical food know-how and original barbecue recipes that would serve him well when he returned to his childhood neighborhood to found Barbecue, Blues & Seafood. Jason—along with brother Brian and cousin Duane—recently celebrated the restaurant’s first anniversary by grilling an entire pig and regaling guests with the choicest cuts. Jason’s young daughters, Reghan and Julia, tag along with him daily to give their favorite menu items a barbecue-coated thumbs-up.
