“Cream of Crab Soup Made the Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

A friend who lives locally took us to Stoney's for good seafood and it mostly hit the spot. First off, the drinks were surprisingly powerful. Their hard cider could knock your socks off. I then had cream of crab soup which lived up to its reputation. Terrific. Made most clam chowders I'd had seem watery. For an entree I had shrimp jambalaya which was creole hot and tasty, although I expected more sausage in the mix. My wife had mussels fra diablo which she said was OK but not the best she had. It was a good experience but a little shy of the fifth star.

Crab cakes without gluten! Fresh lump crab cake. Excellent service. We returned again for dinner the next evening too.

“Superb seared tuna and rockfish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We’ve tried other restaurants in Solomons Island, but really like the casual atmosphere and excellent quality of the seafood at Kingfishers. Others have written that their blue crab crab cakes are some of the very best on the Chesapeake, but we found the non-crab cake dishes there to be better… like the seared tuna and the rockfish gyro.

It's not that their crab cakes are bad -- it just seems like they're resting on their laurels. The crab cakes are very good, but many of the other fish-based dishes are much better because they can continue to tinker and improve them.

The seared tuna in particular was some of the best I've ever eaten; it came with a fresh, salty, mouth-watering aroma -- rather than a fishy odor that most people associate with seafood. Beautifully seared, nice and firm texture, but still tender enough to cut with a fork. Delicious!

And the rockfish is always excellent here... fresh, tender, and always flavorful.

“Awesome Maryland Crab Soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Crab soup is Awesome! The view is great....especially at sunset. Can get a bit busy so be prepared to hunt for a parking spot. Sit outside if possible, very relaxing:)

“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had the oyster Po Boy. It was fantastic. They also support a lot of regional brew pubs, so there is always something good to drink with your seafood. The waterviews are always nice, and with fall coming, sitting outside will be really nice. Looking forward to my next visit !
