This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

Stoney Creek Inn - Jenna and Dan

When Jenna and Dan told me that they owned a restaurant in Pasadena, Maryland, I asked them what I usually ask small business owners who drop into Buzzy's Country Store "How did you manage to get away?"  

Turns out that they been camping for a couple days at Pt. Lookout and they were celebrating  Dan's birthday on Wednesday.  In accordance with the Buzzy tradition, Dan bought a round for the other folks in the Store and they all spent some time relaxing out on the porch.   

When they left to head back to Pasadena, Dan gave me his card and I noted that the name of their restaurant is the Stoney Creek Inn.  I Googled Stoney Creek Inn and found this 2019 very nice review/article that discusses Jenna and Dan and their efforts to serve up what they call "Maryland Comfort food" (click here.)  (I may have to appropriate that for Buzzy's by saying that we serve up "Maryland comfort drinks.")  

My Google search of Stoney Creek also turned  up a Guy Fieri visit there several years ago as part of his Diners, Drive In's and Dives' show on the Food Network.   Stoney Creek was then operated by different owners, but the Guy video does a good job telling you about the business.  To view that episode (click here.)

Next time I'm up that way, I will definitely check out the Stoney Creek Inn Restaurant.  And my thanks to Jenna and Dan for dropping into Buzzy's. 

Music wise, here is something from a group that started out 20 years ago as a local band in Pasadena, Maryland.  Great song even if the video is a little dark.  (I think it has something to do with doing drugs.)
