The waterfront restaurants of Dundalk, Essex and Middle River are the new stars of a Baltimore County Internet commercial designed to drive tourists to the local eateries.
Whether diners are looking for a special place to pop the big question, take their parents to celebrate a milestone anniversary, party at a fun and casual beachfront tiki bar or dine in a child-friendly environment, eastern Baltimore County has it, according to county officials.
"I know that I'm a bit biased," Sixth District Counciwoman Cathy Bevins said in a press release. "But the views of the bay from our eastside restaurants just blow you away."
The commercial touts the specialities of several restaurants, including the Seasoned Mariner, Seahorse Inn, Hard Yacht Cafe, River Watch, Sunset Cove, Sue Island Grill and Crabhouse and Brewer's Landing.
The video ends with Bevins motoring away from a pier on a personal watercraft with Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz as her back-seat passenger.
"I just love these places," Kamenetz said in the statement. "Getting to tour a large portion of the county's 200 miles of waterfront with 'Captain' Bevins was an added treat."
