This Hogg’s Hollow restaurant feels like a classed-up Keg, with flat-screen TVs, lit-up beer signs and varnished wood, and like its steak house cousin, families pack the place for surf-and-turf standards. Two large crab cakes are crispy on the outside and packed with soft, sweet blue crab and shrimp. They’re a better bet than the shrimp cocktail, which brings three paltry shellfish. A plate of pumpkin ravioli with apples, pecans and dried cherries is tied together with a bright, creamy apple cider sauce. Desserts are very good: the crème brûlée’s crust is properly thick and glassy, the velvety cream underneath flecked with vanilla. A large slice of warm caramel-drizzled peach cake could easily be shared, but you might not want to.
