While the various hotel zones have a good variety of accessible chain restaurants, the best locally-owned eateries are mostly downtown including Maldaner’s, Augie’s Front Burner, and Saputo’s. Local favorites in the southwest are Fritz’s Wagon Wheel, Mariah’s and D'Arcy's Pint. The latter is a popular spot for a horseshoe and a draught beer after work so come early or wait. For a great fish dinner, try the Chesapeake Seafood House, set in a historic home in the northeast. Their buffet lunch and early bird specials draw residents and visitors on a budget.

At lunchtime the Feedstore packs in a crowd for its healthful soups, sandwiches and salads. Its prime location facing the Old State Capitol is shared by Robbie's next door, which has a seasonal outdoor patio right on the plaza. Robbie's features live jazz on Friday evenings while Trout Lily Café, a fun, artsy coffee shop around the corner on Sixth Street, presents local bands at lunchtime. Café Andiamo on the same block makes a mean cappuchino and delectable pastries.
