The view was as wonderful as always.
In its heyday The Comus Inn was famous for its fried chicken and it was always on the menu. Not anymore. I had the Maryland Crab soup that had no crab in it and the 1855 Rib-eye. My wife had Hush puppy appetizer and the Cast Iron Duck. We passed on dessert at $12 each. My steak was a half inch thick, overdone (how could it now be at that thickness?) and had absolutely no flavor. The duck was tough. The server was overly attentive and asked several times if we thought our food was "delicous". I found this very annoying. She was also the only server on duty for a dozen tables.
I thought the wine list was lacking. From Maryland they only had one local Sugarloaf Winery offering, a chardonnay and some sort of red wine from Elk Run in Mt. Airy that was sweetish and light like a pinot noir. The rest of the wine list looked like they shopped at Costco. Nothing special. We had a bottle of Alamos Malbec for $32, an outrageous price for a $7 bottle of wine.
There was only one person working in the kitchen and the manager made like she was Chef. He bragged about how she was in the Top 100 Chefs in America, a ridiculous claim for someone working by herself in a small country restaurant. Maybe we hit them on a bad night but I don’t think we will go back.
