Boathouse Canton set for mid-April opening in former Bay Cafe location

The Baltimore Sun

Boathouse Canton is set to open next week in the Tindeco Wharf space that was the longtime home to Bay Cafe.

Maureen McEnerney, who co-owns The Boathouse Canton with her husband, Gene Singleton, said that the goal from the start was to make the Boathouse a worthwhile amenity for the neighborhood, especially the thousands of people that live right on Canton's waterfront.

"We want the Boathouse to be a neighborhood place first," McEnerney said. "If we make it a good place for the neighbors, the rest will follow."

McEnerney said that she also wanted to create a place where people will want to go even if the weather isn't great. Improvements to the interior include the addition of an enclosed side-porch for year-round dining and a refurbished mezzanine-level dining room.

The outdoor setting at Boathouse Canton, which will be ready a few weeks after the mid-April opening, will center on a rebuilt patio, with an outdoor fireplace and large community-style table. 

The palm trees and sand that helped make the Bay Cafe's outdoor setting a popular summertime destination have been removed.

Boathouse Canton is at 2809 Boston St. For more information call 410-773-9795 or go to
