We had a business dinner here and I promised the guy that he would have the best crab cakes of his life. Lemon Leaf delivered. Plenty of crab, light on filler and cooked to perfection. I enjoy their rolls and zucchini bread too. If you're lucky and they have apple bread, try some. It's heaven. Service could have been a... More

We ate a great meal here. We were seated promptly and our server, Margaret Ann, was wonderful. We had the local vineyard wine (Crow Vineyard) and it was excellent. We started with the cream of crab soup. Easy to see why it was award winning,so good. Then we had the rock fish special and the crab imperial dinners. The rock... More

My spouse and I were on the bay for our anniversary. On the way home, we spent some time in Chestertown. My wife was doing some clothes shopping and I asked the shop keeper if she could recommend a place to eat. She suggested this place, just a few doors up from where we were. I asked her the nature...

Overall, we had a wonderful lunch at Lemon Leaf Cafe. The atmosphere is nice, and the service was friendly. And you can't leave hungry unless you're taking most of your meal in a doggy bag. Hits with my family included the cream of crab soup (very thick and flavorful), the Houser sandwich (essentially a very stacked grilled ham and cheese),... More

So happy to say, that our previous visit was an exception to the norm. Our breakfast with friends this time was excellent. Food was hot, and everything was as ordered. Our server "Mary?" was excellent. Great wit and very attentive.

Had the absolute pleasure of dinner at the Lemon Leaf last night. I dined with my parents who are Chestertown locals. We had a reservation and were shown to our table immediately. The ambiance was so pleasant- bright but not too bright, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Our server, Joni, was friendly and prompt- and attentive and patient with my elderly... More

On a day when it rained 9 inches in some parts of MD and 3.5 in just an hour someplace close by we parked at the curb and swam to the restaurant. It was welcoming in inside. The owner was out and about greeting people. The vegetarian dish is quite something - pasta w/dried tomatoes and mozzarella. Shrimp stuffed w/crabmeat... More

You DO NOT want to miss this place!!! From the moment we walked in, the Customer Service was outstanding. Our waitress, I'm sorry to say I've forgotten her name, was more than attentive, we waited for nothing. After ordering, Jr, the owner, came to our table to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The food...the cream of crab soup... More

Does not matter! The black bean burger (a double) with pepper jack cheese was really good. Didn't miss the meat at all. We also had the turkey reuben which received high marks also. The homemade chips seemed almost healthy. The service was friendly. Lots of carry-out on a Sunday afternoon. Please know that Sunday brunch is served until 3:30 and... More
