    But from what I understand, they are not going to have two restaurants and will be moving their operations there.

    Mixed feelings. Had a lot of good memories at Clarkes Landing, plus I am sure the prices will go way up. Hope they still have the same good food. I will miss the old feeling of the place though. Plus they had a nicer view I think.

    Yep.

    Mixed feelings here too. Back in the day, the Lighthouse was practically the only "high end" restaurant in southern MD. We took our clients to dinner there, or we took them to Oakwood. Or we simply ate at "MAryland Way" in the Holiday Inn..which was about the only hotel in the area back in those days that didn't charge rooms by the hour.

    Expecting that the "location" and "the old name" will magically sprout a new restaurant that is as good or better as the old one was?...local restuarant history suggests not, unfortunately.

    But I'll be right there in line with everyone else to give 'em a try!

    I'll miss Clarks' Landing. Son and a niece worked there in their high school days. Best of luck to their new endeavor, I'll stop on by.

    Agree Gilligan, remember when the lighthouse first was built and worked at Pax, great food excellent service. Only time will tell if it can be repeated. Many good memories and meals there.

    I miss the Lighthouse Inn...
    I had ordered their crab sandwich thinking it was a crab cake on a bun...
    Boy was I wrong... They were the first ones I ever had serve a crab sandwich using a soft shell with the legs hanging out! I just couldn't eat it.. Ended up with Crab
    Imperial. Yes.. Good memories!

    Although I do miss having the lighthouse as a seafood option.... Their dinners were awesome! Then after we found out the lighthouse wasn't being rebuilt, we tried the Bluefin in Annapolis and found it to be pretty good... At first it was difficult trying to figure out when they were open for dinner.... I think that's been all worked out : )

    WOO HOO.. Clarkes Landing for Lunch!
    Love the shrimp salad sandwiches! Can't wait...
