The Frying Pan still sizzling over 40 years later

In 1969, before franchise restaurants began making inroads into rural Calvert County, it was the independent restaurateur who fed the hungry natives and tourists. Arguably the most enduring of these restaurants was and still is The Frying Pan on H.G. Trueman Road in Lusby.

For nearly 24 years, The Frying Pan has been owned and operated by Scott Adams.

“I always wanted to be my own boss and now I have more bosses than I ever had,” quipped Adams.

Adams clearly enjoys the oversight of his many loyal customers who frequently congregate at the cozy eatery for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Frying Pan specializes in America’s quintessential comfort foods. The menu includes burgers, sandwiches, seafood, Southern-style and home-style cooking.

Whether you are dining with one or more companions—of all ages— or prefer service at the counter, The Frying Pan can accommodate you. They also provide carryout service.

Under its original owner, The Frying Pan was open six days a week, 11 months a year. The first owner leased the restaurant in early 1988 and the operators closed it two years later. It didn’t stay closed for long. Less than four months later Adams arrived and made The Frying Pan a seven-days-a-week restaurant. The hours are Monday through Saturday 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
