Fodor's Expert Review Cozy Restaurant
Family-owned and -operated since 1929, this legendary establishment boasts a bustling restaurant and pub with 11 dining rooms, an adjacent inn, shops, and a museum—reportedly the only one in the nation—that pays homage to nearby presidential retreat Camp David. The spot is well patronized by members of the media, and posted newspaper clippings and photographs recall the 1979 Camp David accords and other major news stories. Cozy has home-baked treats and several all-you-can-eat buffet nights to refuel after a long day of hiking. On Wednesday and Thursday it's steak and shrimp; Friday and Saturday feature a gut-busting land-and-sea spread that includes steamed oysters, clams casino, shrimp, scallops, barbecued ribs, steaks, and fried chicken. You can ratchet up the heat with one of the 200 hot sauces from the restaurant's "Wall of Fire."
