Baltimore Take Out Food: Support Local Diners
This is part two of my review of some Baltimore area restaurants and what they’re doing while closed for indoor seating. If you missed part one, I won’t hold that against you. As a review of part one, for all these restaurants I’m assuming you can order via one of those food delivery services. Also, curbside will mean bringing food out to your car, carry out is defined as able to go in and pick up food from the counter. Best to order and pay in advance.
Dock of the Bay, 9025 Cuckold Point Rd, Sparrows Point. Open daily from noon to 8 (7 p.m. Sunday), they offer both curbside and carry out. The limited menu incudes chicken wings, crab pretzels, soup, and crab cakes. They will deliver on Millers Island and Fort Howard. Parking in the adjacent lot. (410-477-8100).
98 Cannon Riverfront, 98 Cannon St. Chestertown. Carry out only daily noon to 8. You can eat on the benches outside the restaurant with a great view of the Chester River. Most menu items are available like crab cakes, burgers, and tacos. Cocktails to go.
