Tasty stop in Chestertown, MD

This is a small, delightful restaurant. I had the ham & brie appetizer & the cream of crab soup. Both were delicious. My husband had the fried olives & a crab cake. His comment was "This is all crab & no cake!" Would eat here again if back in the area.

My husband, sons and I enjoyed our lunch here - nothing terribly outstanding to report, but a good meal nonetheless. I had the Sunday dinner sandwich, which was roasted turkey with stuffing and a cranberry spread. It would have been totally delicious if there were not a couple of pieces of very dry and hard to chew turkey. Once I... More

We had the most wonderful dinner here ! My wife had the crabcakes and I had the surf and turf . Both of the dinners were spectacular ! We had the apple crisp and lemon meringue pie and they were both great also . We can't wait to come back when we are in the area.!

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. The food was fresh and well prepared. The atmosphere was light and clean. I would recommend it to either my foodie friends and family or my hamburger eating son.

Pleasant wait staff, interesting and seasonal menu, and prices moderate. Even a good wine list. Try the fried stuffed olives and crab cake.

I've been here twice…once for lunch and once for dinner. Both experiences were excellent. I've already made a reservation during my next visit to Chestertown.

We enjoyed lunch while wandering in the area. Obviously a popular local spot with welcoming staff and a delightful lunch! Menu with more selections than we could eat! We relied on our waitress as this was our first visit to make recommendations and she did not disappoint us! We look forward to another visit.

What a yummy place! So "downhome" and inviting. The food is delicious. The cream of crab soup is to die for. Everything we ate(and we had 3 meals there) was absolutely delicious!

We stumbled onto this place when 2 other lunch places were no longer in business, and were glad that we did. Club sandwiches are a bit pricey at $13, but enormous, fresh and perfect on a warm day. Service was attentive and timely.
