Waterfront park is a nice place for a stroll along the river. It has Joes Crab Shack for a bite, river boat cruises are available, and a great view of the city. Parking was only $3

This park is right on the river. There is a walkway that leads to a playground and benches where you can sit and take in the beautiful view.

There are a couple of restaurants. Joe's Crab shack comes to mind. But I don't believe there is outdoor seating and dog friendly. If you go up a few blocks off of the river, there are up around Main street.
