Bay Cafe to be replaced by Boathouse

The Bay Cafe in Canton closed last December, but a new restaurant called The Boathouse Canton, Waterfront Grille is set to open in its place in the next two weeks.

The top-to-bottom renovation has transformed the space that once looked like a tiki bar into more of an upscale nautical-themed restaurant—with refinished hardwood floors, a brand new outdoor fireplace, and a gazebo.

SMG Architects designed the project, which is the same firm responsible for Woodberry Kitchen, The Food Market, and new Mt. Washington Tavern.

A new menu will accompany the new look. The Boathouse Canton will be serving up Maryland favorites like cream of crab soup, jumbo lump crab cakes, and Old Bay chicken wings, as well as other items like calamari and flatbreads.

Also being featured are local draft beers and cocktails, like their take on a dark and stormy, which they have asked their Facebook fans to help name. The restaurant has been active on social media, posting photos and construction updates on a regular basis.

Guests will be able to dine in the Boathouse Canton’s interior space beginning the week of April 14, and the outdoor space is set to open in the near future.
