Bar
“This casual place on the waterfront is a favorite of both locals and visitors. Nothing fancy (burgers, crab cakes, blackened fish sandwiches are always a good bet), but a great place to sit outside, get a bite to eat or a drink, and watch the happenings at the marina - whether that's boats or blue herons. The crowd can get a bit lively on weekends, especially during the summer when there's live music. ”

Cafe
“One of our favorite ways to start the day in Rock Hall! Can't beat a coffee and breakfast burrito from Java Rock. They also offer paninis, bagels, frozen lattes and smoothies, salads, and baked goods. Outdoor seating available, vegetarian and dairy alternative options, selection of funky gifts and wine. https://www.javarockcoffeehouse.com”

Ticket prices are reasonable and check out their Mainstay Mondays for $10. Bring your own dinner, grab a beverage from the cash bar, and enjoy! https://mainstayrockhall.org”
