We ate here on New Years Eve 2016 and enjoyed the special pre-fixe menu they had available that night. We got the to-die-for Cream of Crab soup (best I've ever had), and the filet and crab cake, which were both so incredibly delicious. Our server (regrettably, I cannot remember her name) was wonderful and made us feel very welcomed. She... More

My wife and I enjoyed a rest day visiting Maryland's Eastern Shore. Chestertown was particularly pleasant with many great shops and beautiful homes lining the Wye river. We planned on eating at Lemon Leaf Cafe because of their many positive reviews. We were not disappointed. They are conveniently located on the town square in the arts district. The restaurant is...

The atmosphere was nice. The service was ok. However, my sides were placed on my wife's plate. They asked us if we wanted them to fix it instead of just taking it upon themselves to fix their mistake. I ordered my burger medium and it came out rare. The menu said the burger was on a toasted brich bun but... More

We started off with their crab soup...which was AMAZING!! We ordered sandwiches for lunch, which came with homemade chips, and they were delicious. The atmosphere is quiet,... More
