Only One Choice in Rock Hall: The Bay Wolf
Jan 20, 2015 by: wayne417 from North East, Maryland
Not on the water, but close to it lies an amazing restaurant that offers excellent quality at value pricing: The Bay Wolf. I have taken many, many motor coach groups here, and also have gone there a number of times with family and friends. The result is always the same: Wonderful. Much of the food is locally caught (in the adjacent Chesapeake Bay), and prepared (i.e., fresh flounder, clams, crabs, oysters, etc.)....Add to that a bit of flavor from the Sunkler family heritage (Austria), and you have a recipe for amazing success. In the winter, add an Oyster Night and you have fresh tonged oysters like you have never had them. Worth the drive!
Good Food, Great Time

I often frequent this restaurant for the stellar food & unparalleled service. The menu has a nice variety & the restaurant features specials every night of the week. My favorites include Wednesday's all-you-can-eat oyster night & Thursday's burger night, which is very popular with the locals. The burgers are cooked to order & there is a burger bar set up with all the fixins so you can have it just the way you like. The french onion soup is the best & the salmon is fantastic. The servers are helpful and attentive & the bartender is super cool. The atmosphere is friendly & the the owners set the tone by personally greeting every patron. The prices are reasonable & the food consistent. This place is one of my faves!
New Years Day Dinner - Nothing to Celebrate
Jan 02, 2015 by: Nickgl from
We were anticipating nice dinner on New Year's day at Bay Wolf and were very disappointed. Clams were poorly prepared and full of sand. My wife's chicken breast florentine came on pasta that was completely over cooked and both of our dishes had sautéed snow peas that had seen much better days. My beef tenderloin in brandy-peppercorn sauce was nicely cooked but the sauce was clearly reheated.

In Rock Hall in late November, pretty much every restaurant is closed on Monday. Bay Wolf was the only game in town, so we went. I had oyster chowder (there must have been almost a dozen oysters in my bowl) and a (HUGE) fried oyster sandwich. Wife had Shrimp Almandine. All food was great, and prices were very reasonable. Good service, Classical music from the bar area was a nice touch.

... on Wednesday nites. All-you-can-eat local oysters have been hard to come by in recent years north of the Bay Bridge. But these dandies were close enough to be 'local'. Bay Wolf is an Austrian restaurant by night with a friendly bar scene in the back. They also serve a nice lunch. But... on Wed nites in season it's all about the oysters. They start you with a plate of half shells... perfectly shelled and icy cold with some light cocktail sauce. (ask for hot sauce if you want to spice it up) Then you get a combo plate of fried and baked (Rockefeller and Casino?) oysters. These are prepared to order so they haven't been sitting around on some buffet line. And herein lies the difference between good fried oysters and great ones. And these are great. So great that it's hard to stop eating them. There is a nice side of bread, cole slaw and boiled potatoes... which are very tasty. There are quite a few Eastern Shore places where you can get a-y-c-e oysters, but very few offer them made to order. There is a difference. The service is very friendly and attentive.
