When you’re craving top-notch surf and turf, the chef at Pier 1 Restaurant, not far from Chesapeake Ridge, can always oblige. Although the menu changes frequently to reflect what’s being caught on any given day, you can always expect a wide variety of seafood and steaks, along with other meat-centric and pasta dishes.
The crab cake platter is a classic that shouldn’t be missed if you’re a fan of fresh seafood! The chef uses his own original recipe to shape cakes from fresh chunks of jumbo lump crab meat. Fried shrimp, pan-seared scallops, and twin lobster tails are a few other options. Craving turf instead of surf? Try the New York strip steak (available blackened or grilled) or the prime rib, which is only offered on Fridays and Saturdays. Or, instead of choosing one or the other, enjoy both steak and seafood when you order a “steak and cake.” The entree includes a 10-ounce New York strip steak alongside a homemade crab cake. The surf and turf dish replaces the crab cake with a four-ounce lobster tail. Pick from traditional sides that include homemade coleslaw and mashed potatoes.
