Welcome to Schaefer's Canal House! Schaefer's Veranda
Schaefer's Restaurant sits on one of the most spectacular pieces of property on the Upper Chesapeake Bay, C&D Canal, and Delaware River. As you walk in to the restaurant, to the left we have an amazing bar overlooking the passing ships and yachts. Directly past the host stand is our spacious dining room and off to the West end sits our lounge area, which is perfect for our smaller parties. We welcome reservations for the restaurant and veranda all season long. The deck and pavilion is first come first serve! 

Our favorite part about our location obviously is the amazing view of the historical C&D Canal.Waterfront dining in Maryland can be very soothing however adding the flavors of Schaefer's Canal House can become a very enjoyable experience. The facility has ample room both inside and outside with atmosphere to fit your preference. Inside the restaurant you can enjoy a meal while gazing at the river. Or if you would like to step a little closer to the action we have room on our veranda which is attached to the main dining room on the upper level. Be sure to call early for reservations because once the weather breaks in the Spring and Summer months the restaurant and veranda both pack up quick! No matter what seat you have upstairs you have a view because we have window views at every seat in the house! The upper level at Schaefer's boasts some of the best views that you will see when we are talking about yachts, tug boats, and other commercial vessels passing by. Come check it out for yourself if you don't believe us!!

Our very cozy lounge area is located inside the main restaurant on the West end. This area is used for parties both private and non private up to approximately 35 guests. What makes the lounge really work for a lot of guests is the amazing views of the outside patio & Lighthouse Bar, the canal on, and also the main dining room area.
