Served up some delicious Local Reye's Farm Squash and our Salad Greens are sourced from Blenheim Organic Gardens. It won't be long until about everything will be LOCAL. Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Peppers, Okra and More. We are excited that The Westmoreland Berry Farm is Picking their 1st of the Year Peaches. Blackberries are readily available and we see a Fresh Made Local Peach and Blackberry Cobbler topped with Trickling Springs Peach Ice Cream. The window does not stay open very long, so we plan to take advantage of our Chesapeake Bay Bounty! And because we are Chesapeake Bay 'Farm to Table' with the freshest of Seafood, Veggies, and More, we find it very important that we offer Natty Boh! Did you know that Natty Boh is no longer brewed in Balmer? But it still brewed and reflects everything good about our Bay and Region (The Land of Pleasant Living). And it will always be! That's why you can enjoy it here at Denson's! it's part of Chesapeake Bay Tradition! BTW...Natty Boh has become one of the Favorites at Denson's!

We only have about 11 more days until we begin serving the Well Publicized 'Snakehead'. There has been a lot of discussion and suggestions concerning the name. We agree, 'Snakehead' just might not be the most appetizing name. Our friend Terri Hyde suggested that we name the plate 'The 1404' after the House Bill that was introduced, Passed and signed into law right here at Denson's. We like it! There is also a nod to Harry Potter and we could call it 'Fish that must not be named'. We are going to go with 'The 1404 Plate' Fresh, Delicious 'YOU KNOW WHAT', Cut into Bite Sized pieces, coated with House Autry and Fried until Golden. Served with Fried Horseradish Pickle Chips, our House Made Slaw and Remoulade for dipping. At this point, we have everything arranged with a Certified HCAAP Seafood Distributor and we are looking forward to it being delivered early Sunday morning, July 1ST. Don't be scared...Come see us and enjoy something NEW at Denson's!!

Wow...We are really blessed to have great friends and wonderful local resources! On Saturday, during dinner service, we were without the exhaust over our cook tops. It was, well....really hot in our Kitchen. Two of Rocky's and Blaire's Friends (Steve and Mike Griffin) happened to come in and notice the heat. Next thing we knew, they were on the roof and checking out the system. Unfortunately, we just could not find the cause. But they did everything they could to get us some relief. And up on the roof????...It is a black roof and you could almost fry an egg on it. Hat's off to our co workers in the kitchen and on the floor. Bree, Wayne (Blue), Ryan, Trevor, Tyler, Anne, Shelby and Taylor for enduring the hot conditions, sticking in there, and making dinner happen without a hiccup! That night we called our friend Frank Watkins who cleans our exhaust to see if he could check it out for us and see what the cause was (We were hoping that it was an easy fix). He said he would be at Denson's First thing Monday. Blaire and Rocky headed to Greensboro NC to see family on Sunday morning. Our Shirley made sure that she could open the restaurant so Frank could check things out. We got the call from Frank that the belt was fine and that it was most likely electrical...or the motor. The next call was to our friend, Byron Rawlings, owner of Rawlings Electric in Colonial Beach. The 1st words from Byron....'Is anyone at the restaurant now'??? Within a few minutes, Shirley had the door open and within no time, Byron's right hand man, Steve, was on the roof in 90 plus degree heat checking out the system. It was the motor! Steve removed it, took it to Rocky and Blaire's former next door neighbor and friend David Stinnette at Potomac Alternator on First Street. David made it a priority, fixed the motor, and this morning Byron, Steve and Brian were on the roof installing it. It works like a champ.We cannot thank all of these fine folks and businesses enough for taking the time away from their busy schedules in order to keep this small business going. Without the exhaust, we would only be serving cold sandwiches with Chips (No hand cut fries) this weekend. And no dinner service. What a great town in which we live!
