My husband and some friends met at the Lemon Leaf last weekend; 4 different menu choices and we all had excellent food. Our only complaint was that we were seated near the front door and it was very cold that night - every time the door opened we were cooled-down by a blast of freezing air. For that reason I'm...

My crab soup at lunch was a little salty, but simply delicious. Would order it again in a heartbeat. I did not try other dishes.

We have dined here numerous times and the cream of crab soup and crab cakes are always very good. I greatly prefer going for lunch because I can't stand the glaring overhead lights at night. More like diner ambiance than fine dining. It is a shame because otherwise it is a pleasing space but when I am out for dinner... More

My wife and I visited the small village-like Chestertown for a few days. After a talk at Washington College and a pleasant walk around campus we had a late dinner at the Lemon Leaf Cafe conveniently located on High St. just above Cross street. It was a clean, well lighted place with comfort food on a darkening evening. The place... More

We went to the Lemon Leaf last night for dinner & were not disappointed. I had the coconut shrimp, which were very good & plentiful (8) .It came with potatoes and seasonal veggies. It was a big entree, but I managed to finish all of it. My husband had stuffed shrimp with crab imperial on top-also very good. I finished... More

We had a lovely brunch here on Sunday morning! Definitely make a reservation because shortly after we arrived the place filled up quickly! Wait staff was friendly and the food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. If you are in or going through Chestertown, give it a try!

I literally still salivate when I think about the cream of crab soup from Lemon Leaf Cafe. If this place was even an hour closer to my home, I would make a monthly pilgrimage. Having lived in Maryland on and off over the years, my family and I are quite fussy about our crab dishes, so when we say top... More

We were in Chestertown for a few days and the hotel recommended the Lemon Leaf Cafe. First we went there for breakfast and were so pleasantly surprised. The service was great, very friendly and so charming just like the restaurant and town. The food was very good, even the coffee was good. I am a little picky about coffee and... More
