My friend and I were meeting in Chestertown for lunch for the second time. We had planned to go to another restaurant but arrived to find its parking lot flooded after a morning of heavy rain. She arrived first and called me saying, "we need a plan B" and I remembered having read about the Lemon... read more

Nice place to eat but manager needs to learn how to talk to people. She was yelling at one of the servers out where everyone could hear and see them. Very unprofessional.

Maybe it's just me but spring & lemons just go together so when we saw this place on day 1 of our spring vacation, we just had to eat here. We were very happy we did. The cream of crab soup was rich and perfect. The vegetable crab soup was a hearty tomato based soup, also delicious. The veggie burger... More

As a young professional I enjoy going out with friends and family. This can get expensive and sometimes not worth the time and money. The Lemon Leaf Cafe offers a menu with variety and that is affordable. I enjoyed the atmosphere from the ambiance to the friendly staff. Enjoy the wine menu and don't worry about getting out of their... More

I read so many great reviews that I guess my expectation were too high. We stopped in for a light supper and both had crab cakes - crab cake sandwich and crab cake on a salad. They had the potential to be good but since they were premade and reheated - they arrived lukewarm at best. Not worth the effort... More

This was my second visit to the restaurant, and again I was extremely pleased. The first time I went it was for dinner and I had the crab cakes and steak. Both were prepared to perfection. I wanted to taste the breakfast offerings so last weekend when I traveled there for a meeting I arrived a little early so I... More

Our dining experience at the Lemon Leaf Café was excellent. We loved the quaint atmosphere and the food and service was outstanding. We both had the prime rib and it was done to perfection. The desserts are out of this world. I would recommend the Coconut pie. Our waitress for the evening was so delightful and she made us feel... More

While in Chestertown, visiting relatives during the holiday, we went to the Lemon Leaf Cafe for a late breakfast/early lunch. We were greeted at the door by a smiling face and quickly seated. Service was fast and very friendly. While waiting for the food, the owner -JR- came out and made the rounds, stopping to visit with everyone. He introduced... More
