Don't forget Jody Schulz and family's Fisherman's Inn and Crab Deck

Former ECU great and very loyal continued supporter with a great dining spot on Kent Island:

Back in 1930, when Kent Narrows was nothing more than a marsh full of muskrats, Captain Alex Thomas and his wife Mae opened the original Fisherman's Inn with a seating for 30 along with a grocery store. They lived upstairs with their two children, often renting their own bedrooms to anglers while they slept on the front porch swing.

In 1939, a second floor was added with more guest rooms. When the Chesapeake Bay Bridge was opened in 1952, the addition of a screened porch created seats for even more hungry guests.

The couple's daughter Betty and son-in-law Oscar "Sonny" Schulz, built and opened the new larger restaurant in 1971. Three years later, the purchase of the adjoining the property paved the way for the establishment of Fisherman's Seafood Market.

A fire completely destroyed the restaurant on December 23, 1980, but the Schulz family rebuilt and reopened in July of 1981. In the summer of 1991, Fisherman's Crab Deck became the latest addition to Fisherman's Village. Now an Eastern Shore landmark, Andy, Jody and Tracy, sons of Oscar and Betty, continue the family tradition of offering delicious food with friendly service that began nearly a century ago.
