Serving local seafood

At Atwater’s we strongly believe in supporting local businesses as well as local agriculture. For this reason we strive to only serve you the best in local seafood. We are True Blue certified which means we are part of a program in Maryland that recognizes us as a restaurant serving only Maryland blue crab meat. We don’t believe in using inferior ingredients simply because it is easier or cheaper. Sometimes that means we must pass on some of this to the customer in the form of a price increase and we appreciate your trust and support as we continue to bring you the best quality food available. We are proud to support local fishermen and our local seafood sources. If you would like to learn more about the True Blue certification program or see a list of participating restaurants click this link: True Blue Maryland Crab Meat

Atwater’s Company Picnic 2014

We had a wonderful Sunday this weekend celebrating our staff and our many accomplishments over the past year. We look forward to our company picnic every year, and this year was no exception. Lines were painted, the dodge balls were set, and the tournament for the trophy commenced. Our dodgeball tournament is a highly contested and coveted event with many bragging rights associated with victory. We also participate in watermelon and pie (blind folded!) eating contests that can get pretty serious and pretty messy. Our picnic is a way to thank our staff as well as meet new people from all of our locations and bring us closer as a team. Families are always welcome and it’s wonderful meeting parents, kids, significant others, and even the dogs of some our staff members! While food is certainly one of the top things we do best, creating a fun, happy, and proud staff is our top priority. So we thank this staff that we feel incredibly lucky to be a part of and we look forward to many more picnics to come! cville staff photo from party watermelon eating contest watermelon eating 2 pie eating dodgeball in action watching dodgeball more dodgeball winner watermelon eating

Announcing Ice Cream by Atwater’s

We over here at the Big Kitchen are thrilled to share with our customers our newest endeavor, ice cream! A long time dream of our founder, this journey into the world of dairy represents much of the passion and hard work done at Atwater’s in our 15 years in business. All of our ice cream is made from scratch with ingredients from local farms. You’ll find no pre-made mixes here! We offer ice cream in a cone or bowl, milkshakes, and ice cream sundaes. Be on the look out for new additions such as ice cream sandwiches and pre-packaged containers! At this point in our journey our ice cream is only available at our Canton Crossing and Belvedere Square locations. Hopefully we will be able to expand in the future. Check back for more ice cream news coming up! caramel sundae w pecans milkshake station BSQ sundae next to menu

Bike to Work Day!

This morning was Bike to Work Day in Baltimore! In case you’ve never heard of it, it’s a wonderful way to learn about mapping routes, meet new people, and spend some time outside with other bicycle enthusiasts regardless of skill level. Our founder, Ned Atwater, participated this morning and commuted to all of our locations with fellow rider Jack MacConnell. Starting in Catonsville they rode to Falls Rd., to Kenilworth in Towson, to Belvedere Square, stopped for a crab cake in Canton, and just pulled up at our Big Kitchen location. That’s a lot of biking! 51 total miles of biking in fact! Check out some photos below!
