The famous seafood destination is temporarily closed for a cleaning and repainting.
One of Broadneck's best seafood venues is closed for the month of January for a cleaning and painting, a store employee said. A sign outside Cantler's Riverside Inn lets potential customers know that they'll have to wait until February to get some of their famous seafood. I attempted to take my in-laws to Cantler's on Wednesday. They had heard me praise their clam chowder, which I consider to be the best I've ever had. But we were all dismayed to see the closed sign. After asking around on Facebook where we should eat instead, Broadneck residents pointed to The Point Crabhouse and Grill, Broadneck's newest seafood restaurant. We were treated well, and the shrimp was divine. Where will you be eating when you crave Cantler's this month?

Broadneck's newest seafood restaurant opened Friday at Ferry Point Marina in Arnold.
The Point Crab House and Grill opened on Friday to an at-capacity crowd. The restaurant has been doing so well, in fact, that the owner is having a hard time keeping the place stocked with fresh seafood. Restaurant co-owner Bobby Jones said every night since the Point opened, it has served between 600 to 700 plates of food, and more than 150 pounds of crab meat. "There have been more people than I ever would have imagined each night," Jones said. On Labor Day around noon, I visited the restaurant and found a large crowd there already eager for lunch. But Jones came out and said the kitchen staff was waiting on a fresh food shipment, and they couldn't take orders just yet. Instead, eager lunch-goers were treated to free appetizers—…

Co-owner Bobby Jones and his staff are putting the last touches on the restaurant, which aims to please homegrown Maryland appetites. Jones said he hopes to finally open the restaurant on Friday afternoon. "It's been very hectic," Jones said. "It's a crucial time right now (for the restaurant). We hope to open on Friday at 4 p.m., and then we'll open at our normal time on 11 a.m. on Saturday." The menu is inspired by the kinds of food that Jones ate while growing up along the Chesapeake Bay, and the restaurant is designed with a neighborhood feel, with items …
