Coastal Smokehouse in Ocean City, MD is in a league of its own, opening just at the start of 2021 after overcoming construction and delivery issues. The decision to open in OC was based on the neighborly atmosphere and the opportunity to be opened year-round in a location that garnered traffic no matter which way you look.

With a meat-focused menu and a large selection of house-smoked BBQ and hand-cut steaks, you’re guaranteed to find your new favorite dish at Coastal Smokehouse. They offer seven in-house made BBQ sauces, unique side dishes including sweet potato casserole with candied pecans and collard greens, and your choice of seafood options, salads, and sandwiches. Their selection of appetizers includes home style classics with a twist like cactus jack cornbread, fried green tomatoes, and crispy chicken livers that are sure to get your mouth watering before you even see the main dish.

There are many things that make Coastal Smokehouse unique, starting with the “airplane hangar” doors that can open completely. People can sit on the patio and feel like they are still inside, while people sitting inside, especially at the bar, can enjoy the outside atmosphere as well. Their bar area provides its own different options for seating; sit at a regular table, a hi-top table, or grab one of the most comfortable bar stools and sit at the bar. The bar is L-shaped with multiple TVs and an incredible overhead liquor cage that makes all their bottles fully visible. Once you make your way to the dining area, there is an open area of tables and an extended banquette that can seat plenty of people.

Whether you’re looking to reconnect with friends you haven’t seen in a while or treat yourself to a solo night-in, Coastal Smokehouse is the place to be this summer. Head over to their website for a complete menu and their Facebook page to keep up with their daily happenings.
