Tidewater Inn (Hunter's Tavern)


Recommended Posts

Driving back from the O.C. this weekend and we stopped off in Easton to check out the Tidewater Inn, the venue for our friends' upcoming wedding. (The gf is co-maid of honor and the bride-to-be wanted to show us around)

We decided to stick around and have dinner at the Inn's pub/restaurant, the Hunter's Tavern.

Dinner started out well, the Maryland Cream of Crab soup and the Snapper Turtle Soup was everything desired on a chilly evening, luscious, thick, creamy, although perhaps a little skimpy on the crab and turtle. The soups were served with a decanter of sherry for fortification.

After a weekend of eating junk at the beach, the fish tacos sounded like a light welcome break - grilled rockfish in taco form. wrong. Out came one of those large tortillas that had been deep fried into bowl shape, filled with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, a meager helping of fish (with several large fish bones), and slathered in sour cream and guac. Who makes this anymore, let alone puts it on a menu? Fucking gross.

The lesson here - when dining on the Eastern Shore, go with Eastern Shore standards. If you want fish tacos go to the Western Shore.

Maybe one other lesson: if dining in Easton, you really, really must try either the Eastern Shore's best place, the Bartlett Pear Inn, The BBQ Joint or, ideally, both. I've eaten at Tidewater--not in the same galaxy as those two. This has been a public service announcement. :D
