If you like your seafood fresh, steamed, and otherwise untouched, go to H&H. It’s a little shack with a deck that sits on the bay, and they serve everything they’ve caught that day on trays for you to bring to one of their picnic tables and season yourself. Get a steamed lobster and ask for some clarified butter on the side, or go for one of their all-you-can-eat crab feasts, where you’ll get a shaker of Old Bay and a basket of tools to break the shells open.
