4 Best Restaurants in Prince George's County, Maryland

Old Hickory Steakhouse

$$$$ Fodor's choice

The signature restaurant of the Gaylord National Resort, Old Hickory is perfect for a romantic meal watching the sun set over the harbor or for an expense-account evening of cocktails and fine cigars out on the terrace. The signature 24-ounce porterhouse comes with four sauce choices: béarnaise, bordelaise, green peppercorn, and blue cheese. Fish and chicken options are available, but the real draw is the expensive steak.



Locals come here as much to be seen as to eat. The Largo location is one of four in the state. On the American menu, lobster bisque, baked stuffed shrimp, and the grilled-chicken Caesar salad are among the favorites; all desserts, including the peanut butter pie are made in-house. Food is served well into the night, as late as 1 am on Friday and Saturday nights. A giant television screen plays Redskins games throughout the football season.



Students, alumni, and locals have made Ledo's pizza popular throughout the state. There are dozens of Ledo's franchises in Maryland, but many insist that the best pizza—with smoked provolone so gooey you need a knife and fork—comes from the original restaurant, which opened in Adelphi in 1955 and moved to College Park in 2010. This location is still family run (the other franchises are under separate management) and serves up homemade lasagna and other dishes made with fresh ingredients.

The Walrus Oyster & Ale House


Inspired by the Lewis Carroll poem, "The Walrus and the Carpenter," this restaurant is a gem for excellent seafood and views. Come here for a crab cake sandwich or select from the list of fresh, briny Chesapeake oysters in a casual, modern pub setting. Then wash it down with a local craft brew. The Walrus proudly partners with Maryland's Oyster Recovery Partnership, which recycles shells and builds reefs for the area's once-declining bivalve population.
