We enjoyed dinner at the Bayard House, oldest building in quaint Cheaspeake City, overlooking the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. As you would expect, the menu includes many seafood choices. I had the rock fish topped with crabmeat which was excellent.

The Bayard House is located just short of water level, from the front the whole canal can be seen, the food is excellent and the Umbrella bar located on the patio is simple with class. Expect no disappointment

Was once great, now it’s just awful! From the building in and out right down to the food. No redeeming quality.

I have dined here several times however, I never ordered lobster only the crab cakes. The crab cakes are the best I have had in the region. I recommend you call the restaurant directly regarding your question. Happy Travels!
