Solomons Pier - Solomons, MD

A few weekends ago, Mike and I found ourselves wandering around Solomons Island on a stormy Friday.  We decided duck into Solomons Pier for a couple of cocktails.  Luckily we did, because soon after we sat down, it started pouring rain all around us.  We were sat outside in their bar which is a room made almost entirely of windows that looks out on the water.  It was like sitting in a giant glass box while it was being sprayed down with water all around you. It was amazing.

But lets talk about the food, shall we?  Neither of us had ever been here before, but we chose it for the spectacular view; it really is amazing.

Mike ordered a beer which for the life of me I cannot remember the name of (I wasn't claiming I was a food blogger back then so no notes were taken!) and I got what they called a skinny margarita.  Mike liked his beer of course and while my  margarita was tasty, there is no way that sucker was low calorie.  It tasted like sweat and sour mix and little else.  And it was STRONG.  You definitely get your money's worth there!  We got hungry (like we always do when we say we're just stopping somewhere for drinks) and ordered the drunken clams which are clams dipped in dark beer, garlic, parsley, and butter.  They came with the perfect bread that was just the right amount of crispy and soft and was amazing dipped in the bowl of clams.  I really enjoyed these and would eat them again in a heartbeat.  The herbs and beer was delicious, but didn't take away from the ocean taste you want in your clams.  

The service was good, especially since the poor waitress kept having to walk out in the pouring rain to come help people . She even managed to get us our clams without getting any water in them somehow.  I'll definitely come back to try the dinner and eat inside, but if you are wanting to enjoy some drinks and appetizers or to have a party, or just hang out with a large group, the outside bar is perfect.  It's very casual, the bartenders are fast, the wait staff is friendly, and of course, the view is gorgeous.
