With everyone spending more time at home we thought we’d share recipes from some of our restaurants most popular dishes. This week’s entry into the cookbook is from Marlin Moon’s Chef Gary Beach’s own sister’s recipe: ‘Sista’s Shrimp & Grits.’ We’re sensing a family theme here : )
Also in the cookbook is Harrison’s Harbor Watch’s Clams Casino, Gary Beach’s (of Marlin Moon) ‘Mom’s Shrimp’ and The Caribbean Pool Bar’s Banana Cabana (think rum). Please check back to catch all the entries to our growing cookbook. We hope you enjoy!
Please try to make these delicious dishes if you’re able, and retry (it’s ok). Please share photos and experiences with us over at their facebook pages. Thank you all and be safe. You can download the cook book here: Cook Book

These amazing photographs come to us courtesy of Heather P. Shreve; author, historian, screenwriter, and great great granddaughter of Rosalie Tilghman Shreve, who build and owned the Plimhimmon Hotel in the late 1800s.

When it comes to why, ...read more
