“Restaurant is called “Chiefs” ... You might like to venture out to the other cool St. Mary's county peninsula which includes our neighbors at Tall Timbers/Piney Point/St. George's Island. We frequent the very iconic WJ Dent & Sons in Tall Timbers to pick up a pound of this very unique preparation of ham known in these parts as "Stuffed Ham". While there are variations of the recipe depending where in the county you buy it, we find WJ Dent and Son's version very much to our liking. You can eat it on a sandwich (best on Wonder Bread), pack it in your omelet, throw it in your cream of potato soup. The deli is housed in what would remind you of a small quaint general store that has kept its wood floors and local character. Dent's stocks some basic grocery items, liquor/beer (local makes too). Its deli might be small by city standards but carries the essentials for you to prepare a delicious home cooked meal or enjoy a picnic lunch a bit further down the road near the bridge to St. George's island! We love their filet mignon and hamburger meat. We also like their chicken salad. The deli and store staff are always helpful and polite. ”

Small private beach is available for Beach Club Members. The Reluctant Navigator is one of our favorite places to meet friends and enjoy Southern Maryland Food as it was intended to be enjoyed.
