All life originated in the ocean's primordial soup, a favorite recipe of the sea's earliest plankton critics. Savor a seafood stew with today's Groupon for fresh seafood fare at Stoney's Kingfishers in Solomons. Choose between two options:
• For $15, you get $30 worth of seafood and drinks for lunch.
• For $25, you get $50 worth of seafood and drinks for dinner.
Stoney's Kingfishers, a chain acclaimed by Coastal Living for crab cakes with "meat so fresh it tastes like a whole new food group," cooks up delectable sea-dwelling treasures from its waterfront location on Solomons Island. The menu nets a colossal catch of crustaceans and mollusks, with shrimp served seasoned and steamed (market price) and oysters prepared raw, steamed, and fried ($8/half-dozen). An array of soups, salads, and sandwiches tempt lunch-lovers, and hearty diners with a hunger pang the size of a deep-fried trident can opt for a pier-fried platter of oysters, shrimp, haddock, and crab ($30). In a partnership between land and sea unseen since Blackbeard's Broadway debut, the steak and cake pairs a sirloin steak with one of Stoney's signature five-ounce, jumbo- lump crab-cakes ($28).
As owners get their saltwater fix, hungry pupils may gaze at Stoney's tranquil panoramic views of the Patuxent River, or take in the lifelike fish sculptures that dot the dining room. With an impressive outside deck and three bars, patrons may find their palettes sated as their tensions unwind like a fishing spool tied to a jetpack-sporting seahorse.
