The Fisherman's Inn

The Fisherman’s Inn - 3116 Main Street Grasonville, MD 21638

When I discovered the Fisherman’s Inn it was the best day of my life. If you love seafood like I do than you need to visit this place. It is right over the Chesapeake Bay bridge in Kent Island. I heard about the place and how good it was, everyone who live in that area rave about it.

Honestly I’d love to try every single dish on the menu but that wouldn’t be very good for my health! Though my favorite dish so far is the Shellfish Linguine it comes with shrimp, scallops, and lump crab meat, tossed with roasted red peppers, spring onion, and cilantro in shellfish cream sauce. Can someone say Yummy!

Overall it is an amazing place that I would recommend to anyone. If you happen to be in the Chesapeake Bay area please check it out, you will not be disappointed.
