We recently met other friends at CD for a mid-week meal. Having eaten here many, many times over the years, we know the rules on how the restaurant and the back bar (which also serves food -- sometimes the same menu, sometimes different) operates. The back bar can serve as a holding area for the small restaurant, but it actually... More

CD cafe always delivers when I want something different from all the other seafood and American restaurants. They offer specials each day although their regular menu has many interesting entrees and sides. On my last visit I broke ranks and did not have their great Pasta dish or CD chicken but got the Greek Gyro Nachos to nosh on. A... More

I read mixed reviews on TA and Google prior to coming here, and TA has usually steered us in the right direction. Not this time. I have no idea why this restaurant is #1 in Solomons. My husband and I found the food to be VERY expensive and mediocre at best. The atmosphere is cliché cafe. Nothing unique about it... More

CD Cafe's service was excellent, and the food was great. For a small place, they had a pretty extensive menu. The seating and parking is a bit limited, but I think fewer seats means the staff can pay more attention to the individual customers. As far as we could tell, their menu choices were pretty original, or slight variations on... More

This one of the best places in the greater area, no doubt about it. The place has 11 tables. We got in right away. And there is a small pub/bar next door to accommodate overflow while you wait. Once inside the atmosphere is a bit noisy, but expected, and yet comfortable. The food options are tremendous, a bit pricey, yet... More

An intimate little restaurant tucked away on Solomons Island. Great food on an ever-changing menu keeps us coming back. Drinks in the quaint bar next door make even waiting for a table fun. We've never had a bad experience at CD Cafe!

Two tennis players, an excellent cook and a diabetic went to lunch. What are the chances that all would love the place? All did. The chef even came out of the kitchen to make menu changes assisting the diabetic. The CD opened at 11:30 and we were the third table to arrive. In short order all tables were full but... More

My husband came for dinner arriving at 5:15 and the girl at the bar was very rude and said they don't open until 5:30 and we could go wait in the lounge next door. We went to the lounge and it was empty, couldn't find anyone to wait on us so we left and dinned elsewhere. I gave it another... More

When in Solomon's, it's our habit to go the the Dry Dock at Zahniser's Marina. But it was a pre-season Sunday night, and the Dry Dock was closed. Instead, we walked over to CD Cafe and were pleasantly surprised that this little spot inside a small office building could deliver such good food and service. The food is high-end and... More
