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

This was our second visit and we were extremely disappointed. Seated at small table close to front door and were blasted with cold air every time customers entered or left. It was crowded so no other seating available. Ended up wearing heavy winter coats throughout the meal. Appetizer of crab, spinach and artichoke dip was just OK and we waited... More

People: Lovely. Location: Great. Effort: Sincere. But so far for me the food has been average at best. I think the decor and atmosphere have lots of room for improvement also. I just can't handle the white formica table tops and the bright compact florescent (maybe they're LEDs) recessed lighting. It's unclear what feel and atmosphere JR is going for... More

I am in love with this place! The Cream of Crab soup is out of this world! I had the crab cake and for being out of season it was delicious! The restaurant was very clean and welcoming. Service was great I can not wait to go back! I just wish their desert menu had more choices.

I have been to the Lemon Leaf before but this place keeps getting better. I took my mom to dinner here who is 87 years old. She likes quiet places, without stairs, so this was perfect for her. We went on 'thrifty Thursday' by chance which meant buy one entree and get one half price! My mom is a fried... More
