“Southwood Kitchen’s chef Jeremiah Matthews prepares a fantastic dinner in a casual atmosphere. We decided to test the kitchen — one of us had the U/10 diver scallops and the other had the black grouper. The scallops were outstanding, served with a green onion and goat cheese orzo and pea shoots. The grouper, sauteed with a crawfish and Crystal Hot Sauce bearnaise sauce, gained rave reviews. I hope you, too, will consider this wonderful choice on the Eastern Shore!” — B’Beth WeldonArtist

Pizzeria Delphina is my go-to place for a lunch date with my husband. The pizza is phenomenal, but my personal favorite is the bolognese made with ground chuck, pork, sofrito and pomodoro sauce. I always order the large portion so that I have leftovers for the next day. The service is quick and friendly. Easily one of the gems of Downtown!” Kasee HeisterhagenAssistant United States Attorney

“You can’t go wrong with a perfectly cooked steak at Ruth’s Chris, but I like to resist the temptation and get the not so obvious choices. Start off with the veal osso bucco ravioli to satisfy your pasta and cheese cravings. Then order the stuffed chicken — you will not be disappointed. The chicken is stuffed with cheese and is always juicy and most tender. For dessert, do the obvious thing and get a Chrissy. How can you go wrong with an ice cream cocktail?” — Jack McCownOwner, Atchison Home

“Corner 251 in the Admiral Hotel Downtown is a great restaurant for light eats, good cocktails and a small selection of flavorful entrees. This visit, I indulged in their flounder fillet. A tender and flaky, generously sized fillet is seasoned to perfection, dusted in cornmeal and fried until perfectly crispy. Paired with a side of French fries, this meal makes a great choice for a quick lunch or casual dinner. Add your favorite condiment, or enjoy it as prepared to experience the full flavor.” — Carl HarperVice President, Harper Technologies, LLC
