After spending the week in Baltimore MD working a trade show and eating overpriced Baltimore seafood, I suggested to the wine queen that we head to Lobscouser. Boy, am I glad we did!
In Baltimore, I was paying $36 for a decent bottle of wine. We got decent wine at Lobscouser for $12 per bottle. Not fancy stuff, but quite drinkable.
We asked for a 6:15 reservation. They allowed as how that would be tight as they had a large reservation coming in at 6:00, but they would do their best. We arrived two minutes late and they seated us within 60 seconds. I have absolutely no complaint.
Available parking on High Street is very iffy, by the way. We don't even try anymore. We take the side street just to the west, Court Street I believe it is and usually find a spot immediatley.
We started off with a cup of the soup de jour. Cream of asparagus. Excellent! I think it was $2.75 for a cup.
The queen ordered fried oysters. That entree was priced at about $17 as I recall. I know they were good as I sampled one of the 13 on her plate.
I ordered the crabmeat Portsmouth. It's a healthy portion of crabmeat blended with sauce, thin slices of tomato (not overpowering), bacon and cheeses. I left nothing behind. And the price ... $17.
The sides were good. They must have run out of bread as they served hush puppies. We saw bread being delivered later on. No harm. The puppies were very good.
We got there in time for the $9 early bird specials, but rarely opt for that as the regular entree's are very good, and favorably priced. That's why we pass several other good seafood restaurants on the 35 minute trip to get there.
Rachael was our server, and fortunately for us she has a good sense of humor. She can banter with the best (or worst, in my case) of us.
Looking forward to the next visit.
