We enjoyed our first visit a couple of years ago, and decided to see if it could be replicated. In general, we were impressed with the unique and creative offerings, which are so different from the usual fried food offerings found elsewhere in typical Chesapeake Bay restaurants. Yet, there was one flaw: too much salt in the sauces. If anything,... More

Atypical offerings, light on staffing and small restaurant. Very popular with the locals. Food overall was delicious, but too eclectic for most palates. Unsuitable for families with young children, large groups or those with special dietary needs.

This is one of the restaurants recommended by our innkeeper. It was a great recommendation. Their menu is not typical American menu and surprisingly good! Would go back there if given the opportunity.

My wife and I ate dinner here on Saturday, August 9. It was our third time. You will see I took the time to review this restaurant the first time we ate there and gave it a high rating. The second and third times have been VERY disappointing. I do not know what has happened the past few months but... More

What a fabulous find. Four of us had lunch at the CD Cafe and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The offerings were unique and unexpected for a place so far from "town." The sushi appetizer platter was full of unexpected flavors and big enough for two of us to split for lunch. The soup of the day was full of lima... More

We not only enjoyed a real nice lunch here but got a lunch for tomorrow off their "blue plate" specials that they offered. My wife had a tilapia plate with mixed veggies and a real nice bread base bathed in a garlic butter sauce. I will be enjoying the eggplant dish that they sent home with me to enjoy another... More

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
