Elegance and fun in Cecil County, Maryland
Port Deposit has a new German restaurant: Prost . The inside of the restaurant -- come as you are -- is built to resemble a Bavarian bier stube. There's an accordion player in traditional Bavarian dress and all the servers, both male and female, are similarly costumed. The menu predominantly features pork recipes, such as sausages and Jager-Schnitzel, but you can also get sauerbraten (beef), roast chicken and fish. Beginners to German cuisine might like to try the salad sampler -- chef's various inventions of the day plus a green salad in the center -- or a sausage sampler.
With a giant inflatable ice cream cone out front, one can't really say that Northeast, Maryland's Wayside Snack Bar is unobtrusive, but it really does have more going on than its casual exterior would have you believe. Sure, they have a full range of cool delights for a hot summer: soft-serve ice cream, hand-scooped ice cream, a 40 flavors of milkshakes, sherbet and water ices. They also do savories with thought. There's homemade BBQ beef and 12-hour slow-cooked pulled pork. Hamburgers are made to order with fresh meat. The chicken Caesar is very generous in size, with lots of fried chicken white meat pieces.
