Leon’s At The Beach: Carrying Forward a Legacy in Ocean City

In the heart of Ocean City, Maryland, a new chapter unfolds in the storied tradition of Leon’s. “Leon’s At The Beach,” inspired by the rich heritage of Leon’s Back Room in Baltimore, is more than just a dining destination—it’s a celebration of history, community, and culinary excellence.

A Journey Through Time Leon’s Back Room in Baltimore has long stood as a beacon of inclusivity and diversity. Originating in the 1890s as Georgia’s Tap Room, it evolved through the decades, witnessing the Prohibition era as a speakeasy and later becoming a hub for beatniks and artists. Since 1957, it has proudly served as Baltimore’s oldest continuously operating gay bar, a testament to resilience and acceptance. “Leon’s At The Beach” is born from this remarkable legacy, embracing the same spirit of openness and unity.

A Taste of Tradition and Innovation Our menu is a blend of traditional favorites and innovative creations. We’ve brought the heart of Baltimore to the beach, offering an array of dishes that range from our signature Baltimore-style steamed shrimp and succulent Porterhouse steaks to our locally acclaimed burgers and fresh seafood. Each dish is a tribute to our roots and a nod to our future.
