If you love local seafood, you live in the right place. The Wharf makes the most of its proximity to the Chesapeake Bay with locally caught fish and shellfish factoring heavily into its menu, whether you stop by for brunch or dinner. If you do swing by on a weekend morning, the best way to savor local seafood is by ordering the eggs Chesapeake with local lump crab meat over poached eggs, all smothered in a buttery cream sauce.
Stopping in for dinner instead? Start with a house-made cocktail and a half-dozen local, raw oysters on the half-shell, served with fresh cocktail sauce and slices of lemon. You can also order your local oysters broiled with cheesy breadcrumbs on top and paired with smoked Virginia ham. On a chilly spring day, you might want to warm up with a bowl of the locally famous Chesapeake Bay she-crab soup instead. Just make sure you save enough room for the main course! The chef churns out dishes like the “famous” all-lump broiled crab cakes, Chesapeake flounder stuffed with crab imperial, and horseradish-crusted Atlantic salmon dressed in honey-citrus beurre blanc.
