Cross street: Atlantic Ocean
Description: 133 steps to the Atlantic...Blurring the boundary between a night in with friends, and an evening on the town, coastal gastropub cuisine, eclectic wine, handcrafted cocktails, cool beers, laid back livin'. We are locally owned and operated establishment. We start with what we call our kitchens mantra from Julia Child; "You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces, just good food from fresh ingredients." Our interpretation is too not get in the way of the food, let the ingredients speak for themselves. We mix this altogether with a nice selection of handcrafted cocktails (a must these days), craft brews, and wines, throw it all together in a relaxed beach cottage atmosphere, and try our best to provide you with the friendliest service we know how. There you have it: Shorebreak Lodge.

Everything was enjoyable the minute we walked in. Ambiance, the friendly staff, and great food. I dined with friends and everyone loved the Mussels, Clams, Risotto and all that we had. and reasonably priced too! We will return here.

We were looking for a nice restaurant with good food, and Shorebreak fit the bill. It is a small and intimate place but lots of fun - great bar with good beer, wine, and cocktail choices. The food is eclectic -- you can order small plates or large plates. We ended up ordering two small plates, mussels in garlic, and... More

I got to Shorebreak by way of yelp reviews, but I like TripAdvisor, too. We were a party of 7 and everybody loved each thing they ordered. We especially liked the charred octopus! My favorite was the shrimp and grits. I've had this dish at Commander's Palace and also at NOLAs in New Orleans. The chefs at those restaurants would... More

Shorebreak Lodge is not an inexpensive restaurant. Dinner for two without drinks ran $80 with tip. With a reservation we were sent to the back room where others were finishing their meals. Twenty minutes later we were by ourselves in an empty room facing an abandoned table filled with used cocktail glasses and dishes. My wife's dish was way undercooked... More

The atmosphere is very informal, almost surfer, which is fitting considering the name and the fact its about 1 block from... More

Excellent, excellent, excellent! My husband and I dined here on a whim after getting in the car with a suitcase and heading out for a spontaneous overnight adventure out of the Annapolis, MD area. Now we want to come back just to try other things on the menu as it was a hard decision to pick only a few items... More
