Another of the restaurants taking part in Calvert’s Restaurant Week.
Stoney’s Prince Frederick is a nice little corner restaurant in the Market Square Shopping Center. There isn’t much of a view except of the Calvert Library. But inside there’s a fireplace and lots of televisions to catch the Caps game or Terrapin Men’s Basketball.
We were there on a Sunday and the restaurant was quite busy. Our waitress was very helpful answering our questions and our food was brought out in short order. After browsing the menu, we ordered the Bacon Wrapped BBQ Scallops for our appetizer. The scallops were over cooked and chewy. The flavor of the BBQ sauce and bacon was good but was overshadowed by the chewiness of the scallops.
Our entrées that we chose were the Crab Cake Platter, the Caesar Salad with Shrimp and the Rockfish Dinner. The crab cakes were fried, contained a lot of filler but a decent amount of crab and were good. The sides were potato salad that had a strong bacon flavor and was very good and onion rings that were delicious. The Caesar Salad had fresh greens and tasted very good. The Old Bay French fries complemented the salad. The Rockfish was broiled and was delicious, accompanied by a baked potato and steamed broccoli. Apparently there was plenty of broccoli as the plate was overwhelmed with it.
Of course, no dinner is complete without dessert. So we ordered Strawberry Shortcake and Smith Island Cake. The Strawberry Shortcake was very good, with a large portion that could easily be shared by two. The Smith Island Cake was fantastic and another large portion that could have been shared by two. Our waitress was very nice and for the most part her service was timely.
The menu is quite extensive offering a large list of appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, seafood steamed, fried or broiled, and even steak and chicken. There is a special kids menu with chicken strips, popcorn shrimp or cod and French fries or applesauce.
