As a Cape resident, I invite you to try the Riverbay Roadhouse. If you haven’t been here yet, you will be pleasantly surprised – it is a beautiful family-friendly addition to our community.
Owners/managers, Pat and Danny Miller, a dedicated mother-son team, described how they decided to open a restaurant in Cape St. Claire. Both grew up here, and have incorporated their community ties in hiring local employees and in using local food supply vendors.
Danny said that despite having owned a local plumbing business (DK Miller Plumbing, Inc.) for many years, he has always had an idea for opening a restaurant and considered buying a restaurant in Baltimore City. But when he heard that the restaurant spot in the Cape St. Claire shopping center was for sale, he jumped at the chance to buy and renovate the property in order to convert it into a family-friendly restaurant, right here in the community where he grew up.
Pat and Danny have worked hard to fine-tune the menu, and have also recently hired chefs and managers with extensive restaurant management and culinary experience. Pat said she has totally immersed herself into all aspects of the Roadhouse, and is pleased that she can use her 30+ years of business management experience and see friends and neighbors who regularly visit the restaurant.
Danny said that they hired an architect to design the Roadhouse and focused on a “totally different, open, clean, and welcoming environment.”
It is now crab season and the Roadhouse has a great fresh local supply of all sizes. And you can call in and use the “drive-thru” window. I find the Happy Hour appetizer specials are excellent, and there is also live music most evenings.
On Tuesday, August 2, the Roadhouse will be host to a wonderful fundraising event for the Cape St. Claire Volunteer Fire Co. which is trying to raise funds for a new fire engine. It offers all of us an opportunity to support our local businesses and fire department in one stop!
