Dinner at Severn Inn

I left it up to Rich to pick the restaurant tonight and he chose to go to the Severn Inn in Annapolis. It was a great choice and I was very surprised. We had seen this place last summer, but I had totally forgotten it was even there. Its very out of the way, located almost underneath the Severn River Bridge just outside of Annapolis. Unfortunately it was a little cold and rainy, so we couldn't take full advantage of the river views and the lovely deck seating they have on the waters edge.

It was a pretty fancy place.....you can park your boat at their private jetty, need I say more!! And a little on the pricey side, but the food was good and the service great. We started with some crab dip, although Rich doesn't really like seafood, so he didn't eat that much. Then for our main, he had veal tenderloin and I had Maryland's famous crab cakes. These were the strangest looking crab cakes I have seen, but they were very good. Mostly meat and not a lot of filler, just the way I like them. Then we also opted for dessert, where Rich had a blueberry key lime pie and I had a mango crisp. Rich loved his choice and said it was fabulous. I find it hard to turn down a crisp if its on the menu, as they are probably one of my favourite desserts and I did like this one....however, I have to say the flavor of the mango was a little strange. I think it was a bit too tropical. I would rather have apple, pear, peach or something like that. It was still very good though.

This is definitely a special occasion restaurant because of the prices, but we had a great night and it was a lovely way to celebrate our first 6 months of marriage.
