House smoked salmon and lamb shank were superb. So were the crab ball appetizers. This needs to be at least 50 characters. This needs to be at least 50 characters. This needs to be at least 50 characters. There.

I don't know what the previous reviewer experienced, but the food, the service, the ambience, and the people here are nothing short of amazing. We arrived a little early, and I got to spend some time talking to the owner/chef out on the sidewalk. Learned a TON in just a few minutes by talking about some of our experiences with... More

NEVER AGAIN! I don't know what some reviewers were smoking. The atmosphere is like eating in an industrial kitchen. The waitress greeted us on entry, gave us menus 10 minutes later, and took our wine order 15 minutes after that. 15 minutes later, we got our wine and ordered our food. The service never improved. The filet was possibly the... More

This is mostly a local place and seems to be the best kept secret in this town! It is small and not open every day. Chou will need and want a reservation, even if you have to sit outside. The outside seating is not ideal as it can be cramped, but the flavorful food is worth it! 3 of the... More

I had a delicious salmon dinner and my husband ordered scallops. The only problem was that my husband would preferred his scallops cooked more thoroughly.

Rock Hall is a place for my wife and I to "retreat" to once in a while. We hadn't been there for a few years so The Kitchen at Rock Hall was new to us. They didn't have the crab soup that day....I survived without it and jokingly reprimanded Steve, the proprietor, for not having it that day. (It had... More

The chef in this small restaurant is exceptionally talented with flavors. The fist was done to perfection like none other and the pork was exceptional as well. If he does cooking lessons, I want to learn from him. This restaurant is worth the trip whether you have business in the area or not.

There aren't a lot of decent restaurant choices in Rock Hall, so we were hoping to give The Kitchen a try for dinner. Unfortunately, they are closed on Wednesdays, the day we arrived, and the next night we had a schedule sunset cruise that wouldn't get us back in time before the restaurant closes at 9pm (most restaurants in Rock...

Inside feels like a small family diner, outside feels like a small town bistro. Either way, omelets were very good, but the french toast was divine. Even the kids loved going. Great for entertaining out of town guests as this place rivals any big-city counterpart.
