Solomons' Version of "Cheers!"

Leery of “downtown” crowds and parking, Ben and Mrs Too trolled northward in search of a more secluded spot in advance for dinner. There on the east side of Solomons Island Road was a small cafe which looked perfect. Ben parked, went in and asked about reservations and requested a peek at the... read more

We had the "Gumbalia" and the Healthy Samon ....... both were really very good and the service was quick and attentive. We ate on a Thursday night and they were full, my sense was we were lucky to not have to wait. So I'm guessing Friday ad Saturday might be pretty busy.

We went to CD Cafe on a Monday evening and it was packed! We waited 15 minutes for a four-top but some couples were seated sooner in the smallish dining room. Service was excellent. The chopped salad was well liked by the three of us who ordered it. I had the pan seared salmon and it was magnificent. Another had... More

I know that times have been challenging economically speaking for ALL businesses and even I know that the cost of food in the grocery stores have increased in the last decade! But CD Cafe has been dependable: great food, consistent menu items and usually quite a very professional wait staff. Their daily specials are creative and concocted with the best... More

Interesting menu with traditional American dishes and a range of unusual too. Very generous serves - we were warned... More

We have been here a few times, and love the place. We try to always eat here when in Solomons Island. Eclectic menu with interesting spices and flavor combo's. This extends all the way down to salads and sandwiches, not just the entrees. But the best is the desserts - all homemade and wonderful, make sure you save room. Decent... More

We saw this place on trip advisor and decided to give it a try while my family was visiting. So glad we did!! All our dishes were AMAZING! The crab cakes were the best any of us have EVER had (and we are all from south Louisiana)!! Our waitress, Jennifer, was so attentive and gave us good recommendations. And make... More

Many places to eat while at PAX River NAS however a good friend recommended this restaurant. Although small the service and the food is outstanding. Our waitress was very nice and very professional. Try the Crab cake. Best around.
