Small - Great Food

This small restaurant (12-15 tables) in Solomons is a favorite for lunch. The food is reliably good, atmosphere welcoming. Because the CD has a considerable following it can be overwhelmed in the sense of noise level when all tables are filled and the kitchen, serving staff overtaxed. Having... read more

We had a great meal, all the entrées were made with fresh ingredients and perfectly seasoned. A "regular" recommended the crab cakes and my friend said it was one of the best. It was made with mostly crab meat and just enough other ingredients to hold it together. Two of us had salads, portions were big and greens very fresh.... More

I try to get here whenever I can. The food is always amazing and the servers are so professional and welcoming. I always just get one of the ever changing specials and the creme brulee is always an excellent choice for dessert. The atmosphere and the people running this place in combination with the great food make this place a... More

It's been awhile since we stopped at this nice little restaurant in Solomon's Maryland. If you decide to dine there, you check in at the Back Door Lounge, in the same building, behind the restaurant, to await your dinner call. It's the Back Door Lounge that we like best. The menu is the same as the restaurant. With a nice... More

Had a delicious steak here tonight. Prepared really well. Sautéed vegetables were excellent. Small, cozy atmosphere.

In my humble opinion this is one of the best places to eat in Southern Maryland. If you are in the Solomon's area and you only have one choice for a meal, make it here. The regular menu is amazing, but their weekly specials are even better. I have been here over a dozen times and the food is always... More

If you are looking for a real food experience in the Solomons MD area then this is the place. It is small with a limited dining room and normally does not take reservations but it is worth the time to stop in. A great menu every day, but we almost always try one of the daily specials. The flavor combinations... More

Went to a business dinner this week at CD Café. Great food, everything was very well prepared and each person enjoyed their meals! Instead of the main dining room, which looked very nice, we actually sat in there bar area down the hall which has tables and a full menu and well, and that worked out perfect for our group... More

When our first choice (old standby a seafood restaurant) was closed for remodeling we elected a restaurant we hadn't been to in years. Fortunately, they were open for lunch. The menu was as diversified as we remembered with a wide range of specials. Normally I insist on eating seafood when visiting Solomons. However, the Veal Schnitzel sounded so intriguing that...

founded by a veteran from the original Dry Dock, Deb has created a nice spot for dinner (or lunch), and a great little back door lounge to imbibe while you're waiting for your table in the restaurant. No reservations. Or, you might just want a small plate and enjoy that with a nice cocktail..
