Cantler's: the best of Annapolis Seafood

Annapolis, MD, United States
12 Kudos
Cantler's Riverside Inn is perhaps one of the more well known seafood joints in the Maryland Eastern Shore area. It is old school and laid back, with an open air deck that provides views of Mill's Creek. On an overnight trip to Annapolis we decided to check it out since it is a popular spot with our family that lives in Maryland. It happened to be mother's day before the church crowd hit so it was relatively low key and we didn't need to wait for a table outside. Crabs are by far the most popular, but we were not in the mood for the ordeal that is picking and eating crab, so we settled for lump crab imperial and it was indeed delicious
