I do photo shoots on the water, in and around the Rocky Point Beach and in the Rocky Point Golf Course areas of the Section of Essex, Maryland that is south and east of the main part of town. Take Route 702 into Essex and go through town. Turn Left at the small sign that says Barrison Point Road and the bigger sign that says Rocky Point Beach; but don't take the net right turn to the Beach. Continue straight on Barrison Point Road. I found the Island View Waterfront Cafe, totally by accident. I was looking for more water front photo shoot locations. Since finding the Island View Waterfront Cafe, in 2009, I return every time I am in Essex, MD. That would be 4-8 times a month, during the summer, when outdoor photography is best on the water.
My favorites are the Maryland Crab cakes and the Cream of Crab soup. They are some of the best in the State of Maryland.
The restaurant is family owned and seems to be a location know to the golfers and the locals.
I go there for the great food and to sit in the corner and review photos with my clients. I normally stay for 2-3 hours and use my computer to let the client select their best pictures. My clients also love the food at the Island View Waterfront Café. Not to be too dramatic, but I feel like family when I visit there.
Check out this restaurant and I even recommend that you make this a destination trip.
