Modest Neptune's claims of preparing "the world's best mussels" rings true with many, making the trip to this tiny town just north of Chesapeake Beach worthwhile. Attached to the small bar, a glass-enclosed dining room with a brick floor is a friendly, informal spot to dig in to its signature dish—it's also a great place for nice views. Also on the menu are seafood pastas, burgers, and cuts of Angus beef. Don't let the "divey" atmosphere dissuade you; order the mussels (sold by the pound) and enjoy. This is the best restaurant (and there are few choices) in town.
