The crabcakes are fabulous as is the cream of crab soup. There is a great pub next door which also has food and entertainment. Both places are an excellent addition to Chestertown. Brunch is served on the weekends.

I have tried many creams of crab in the area and this is the best (next to the another one in an Ocean's City's restaurant--the one at the end of the boardwalk).

I love the Lemon Leaf crab bisque, and so do our French friends who enjoyed it about a year ago. Today we met them in Annapolis for a late lunch at Carrol's Creek after looking at many reviews of restaurants in the area. I discouraged our friends from ordering the cream of crab soup because it's made with pasteurized crab... More

We were visiting Chestertown to see our youngest grandchild who is a senior at Washington College before he graduates in May and to celebrate our 63rd wedding anniversary. We had planned to eat at Brooks Tavern but they are closed on Sundays and Mondays. We opted to try the Lemon Leaf based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. We had made... More

The Lemon Leaf and JR's are under the same professional ownership of JR, (who else) and are side-by-side establishments sharing the same menu. It's all a matter of which venue you prefer as to whether you wish to be seated outside, in the Lemon Leaf dining room, the bar, the back entertainment room, the JR's dining room, or the downstairs...

My husband and I have been to the Lemon Leaf twice, and we will definitely take friends and family there in the future. The decor is tasteful and peaceful, the wait staff is outstanding, and the food is not only delicious in that "home-cooked" way but is also affordable. One of their specialities is the turkey dinner -- a huge... More

Excellent menu, fresh and delicious meals, great staff. Last time we were there I had a question about how a meal was prepared. The waitress went to the kitchen and returned with the Chef who answered all my questions. This restaurant is BYOB and a favorite of all the locals. If you want a tavern atmosphere and a bar simply... More
