I write that because as much as we enjoyed our lunches the first day, we decided to try JR's Pub the next day. And guess what!! They have exactly the same menu. We were a little disappointed but made the best of it by trying new things. The salads are wonderful as are the sandwiches. My partner had a Reuben.... More

Went to Chestertown for a funeral with friends. HAD to have crab while we were there. Lemon Leaf got high reviews and had a great menu for a variety of things. The cream of crab soup was outstanding and rich; a cup suffices. Got the Crab cakes and they were delicious as well...almost no filling, all just delicious crab. Would... More

Located on an quaint, attractive, local street in the business district, this restaurant featured friendly, attentive service and good local food. I had the Maryland crab cakes and they were terrific.

Very pleasant surprise. Good selection of food with excellent prices. The food had a pleasing presentation. Everyone in the group enjoyed the food from the cream of crab soup, shrimp salad sandwich to prime rib sandwich, all were good portions with very good taste. Nice decor with the smell of lemon to keep with the theme. The location is great... More

Quaint little restaurant, and the food was fabulous! Our party of four started with the artichoke and coconut shrimp appetizers and both were delicious. The bread basket included wonderful warm rolls, soft butter, and zucchini bread. Our entrees were crab cakes, surf and turf, and rockfish special. The crab cakes were as delicious as everyone said, the filet melted in... More

We had a dinner party for 22 on a busy first Friday in town. Service was fantastic considering that it was a large group. Everyone was pleased with there meals and they even did separate checks. I will definitely return.

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...
