Kent Manor Inn

Kent Manor Inn, Routes 50 and 8, Stevensville, (410) 643-5757. Somehow, country inn restaurants have become synonymous with something more than hearty, home-cooked meals. You expect to find roast duck, not fried chicken, on their menus. The Kent Manor Inn lives up to these expectations, although the haute cuisine has some puzzling lapses and the service is more what you'd expect with a hearty, home-cooked meal. Seafood is the specialty, like fresh rockfish piled high with crab imperial. But the kitchen did very well with filet mignon in two sauces and duck liver pate. The Caesar salad, though, was too garlicky, and cream of crab soup looked and tasted exactly like the crab sauce on crepes. It was too thick for soup and for a

sauce. $$$ -- expensive. (Last reviewed 2/93.)

Regi's

Regi's, 1002 Light St., (410) 539-7344. This is one of those bar-restaurants South Baltimore does best: a small, quirky place that has a personality all its own. If you don't mind secondary smoke and know what to order, you can have a great time here. We loved quesadillas filled with chicken and bacon with all the trimmings. The spinach, clam and mushroom soup was good, as was the chili served with excellent sourdough bread. But a pork chop was tough, chicken satay was inedibly salty and the salad dressing was acidic. Good desserts, though: peanut butter pie, chocolate torte and carrot cake. $$ -- moderate. (Last reviewed 2/93.)
