Off the Beaten Path
With stylish food, scenic paths and old-school charm, the new Wylder Hotel offers an epicurean escape on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Tranquility, oysters and the livin’ is easy
Wylder’s restaurant, called Tickler’s Crab Shack, is worth the trip and there’s a parade of small boats docking for dinner at sundown. It’s the place to indulge fabulous hard-shelled crabs, deliciously spicy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. The crabs are steamed fresh as orders come in. Local fish is another specialty, which often sells out quickly on weekend evenings.
