The food is fine at Phillips, but the highlight of the evening was when the strolling banjo player crooned "Yes, Sir, That's My Baby" to a nearby diner in a high chair. If that doesn't sound like your idea of a good time, you're not ready for Phillips Crab House.The Phillips family opened their original restaurant next door to the 21st Street spot in 1956. They now operate six restaurants -- three in Ocean City -- that consistently rank among the busiest in the country, so obviously they're doing something right.

August may be the time for folks to go away. This year, it seems it's also the time for some local restaurants to disappear. The popular Owings Mills bistro Due closed recently. However, its food can still be found in its sister restaurant, Linwood's, right next door. One of Linwood's managers, Rachel Zundell, says the Due menu was rolled into that of Linwood's. The Due space is being turned into a catering venue. Linwood's Restaurant, 410-356-3030, is at 25 Crossroads Drive. Lunch is served 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Who says you can't go home again? For lots of folks, Peerce's Plantation was like a second home - the place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, bar mitzvahs, weddings. Or just to enjoy dinner out. When Peerce's closed 2 1/2 years ago, many mourned its passing. Guess what reopened this week? New owners Eric and Jackson Dott, with the help of general manager Peter Weston, have spent months renovating the old building to bring back the feeling of Peerce's glory days. Weston says they've entirely rebuilt and revamped the structure but kept the basic design the same.

You walk up to the display case, where you examine all sorts of fresh fish and seafood. You make your pick. You choose how you'd like it cooked - broiled, fried or grilled - and, perhaps, what kind of sauce you'd like with it. You choose two side dishes. Ten minutes later, your meal is delivered to you. Are you at one of Baltimore's finest seafood restaurants? You could be. But you could also be at Parkville's newest seafood place, Conrad's Crabs & Seafood Market. Obviously, not your usual seafood market.

More than the watering hole of the ChesapeakeMy family and I moved to Annapolis two years ago from Montgomery County. We did so precisely because Annapolis is a special place. We chose the historic district because it is a collection of human-sized neighborhoods in the center of a small, bustling city.I have not been involved in the pushing and shoving that seems to be dominating Annapolis at the moment. I have been trying, however, to understand and have found it difficult.I fail to see how increasing the number of bars and nightclubs and extending their hours can possibly be seen as progress.

A friend recently spoke approvingly of an experience at one of the area's better-known steakhouses. She told me that after she had ordered, the waiter returned to say the potatoes would not be served that evening because they were not up to the chef's standards. When something like that happens once, it's a sign of a caring chef. But when it happens four times in the course of a single meal, it's a sign of problems in the kitchen. That was our experience at the Grille, a restaurant and bar that opened in Canton last November.

Timbuktu, 1726 Dorsey Road, Hanover, (410) 796-0733. Open Mondays to Saturdays for lunch and dinner, Sundays for dinner only. Major credit cards. No-smoking area: yes. Wheelchair-accessible: yes. Prices: appetizers, $6.95-$7.95; entrees, $8.95-$28.95. No, it's not the town on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert. It's a big, sprawling restaurant near BWI Airport, where the most exotic food on the menu is probably the manicotti.And surely the owners didn't name their restaurant Timbuktu to suggest that it's hard to get to. (According to the menu, the main access to the city in the Republic of Mali is by camel.

The restaurant seems to have been there forever, but it's really only 61 years since Snyder's Willow Grove opened its doors along Hammonds Ferry Road.Even its name speaks to another era -- and a lost bucolic setting near the banks of the Patapsco.Fast-forward toward the end of the millennium, and you find a large, boxy building on the edge of an exit ramp from a bustling beltway that could just as well house a mail-processing operation or an assembly line.But inside the doors, past the lounge and banquet rooms, you'll find quite another story -- an almost elegant dining room with green and white decor, heavy white tablecloths, and a long, classic menu leaning toward surf and turf options.

The Valley Inn is weighted down with history. You can almost see the ghosts sitting on the porch watching the dog races or the illegal cockfights. All that ended midway through the last century, of course, but the menu is still filled with dishes from another era: celery stuffed with cream cheese for an appetizer, crab imperial, turkey a la king, wienerschnitzel. Traditional Maryland fare lives on at the Valley Inn. Just take a look at the menus from the '40s posted in the foyer; they aren't that much different from the one you'll be ordering from -- except for the prices, of course.

FOOD *** ( 3 STARS) SERVICE *** (3 STARS) ATMOSPHERE ** (2 STARS) Let's face it. Haussner's is a hard act to follow. Not so much because of the food. In its last years, I never heard people say the food was why they ate there. But Haussner's was one of the few restaurants that could be legitimately described as a Baltimore landmark. It was wonderfully fun to be sitting at one of the white-clothed tables, even if your fish was overcooked or the famous strawberry pie didn't have much taste.
