Bumper Bob's Seafood House, Pennsylvania
While camping with friends outside Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we relished some of the best seafood I've ever eaten, at Bumper Bob's Seafood House in Etters.
The cream of crab soup was especially delicious. Enormous portions and excellent service made the meal even more memorable. Don't pass up the creamy peanut butter pie; friendly owner Bob Conley told us it took his wife, Annamae, 6 months to perfect the recipe.
We asked Bob about the restaurant's unusual name; he told us that he'd bought Annamae some old bumper cars to use as planters. But she told him he'd better not bring them home--so he put them at his restaurant instead. You can see them outside in a flower bed.
