In the 1950's ans 60's, my Grandparents qwned and ran a store in St.Michaels. I spent most holidays and school vacations with them. We would go over to Tilghman island for crab lunches all the time at the little place just over the bridge. It was with great trepidation I took a detour off a planned route to a wedding last month to visit the area I SO loved in my younger days........I am delighted to report that St.Michaels, Bozman,and Tilghman Island have changed very little in all these years and is still, in my opinion, one of the prettiest places in the USA.
As importantly,that "little" restaurant -altho bigger and who knows how many owners since--is still producing THE MOST PERFECT CRAB CAKES I have ever had. NOT DEEP FRiED and NOT FILLED with bread and "stuff" They are PURE heavenly yummy crab. ! We also had a bowl of crab bisque-thick as mashed potatoes and a meal itself so packed with crab.The oyster stew was perfect and with twice as many oysters for half the price as some I had had in ST.Michael's. The fried oysters were light and delicious. The darling waitress was wonderful and sorely tempted me with my favorite dessert....cocnut cake. But OH NO ! !this wasn.t just ANY cake! This was the "state cake of maryland'!!! 8 layers of cold, moist epicurious bliss in my mouth!! ..Don't miss THE BRIDGE ...I'll make the 5 1/2 hr trip back as soon as I can!
