“Excellent food, So-so service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We had a family dinner there ((people) on April 19. Food was excellent, cooked to perfection, and a good variety. Service was very poor. She took some of our orders, then went to another table, finally came back. Got to dessert, took 45 minutes to get all of our orders, then another 30 minutes to serve the desserts. (nothing that had to be cooked from scratch). The restaurant was full, but no one waiting for a table), but that was because most people make reservations

“What a Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Seven of us gathered at Mitchum's for a Saturday dinner. The restaurant was a first for each of us, and we were astonished to find such a posh spot on an unassuming road in the small town of Trappe, Md. The service couldn't have been more outstanding, and to a person, we liked our meals, though in varying degrees. My husband and I ordered the pricey Delmonico steaks which were tasty but not as melt-in-the-mouth tender as we had anticipated. Our serious complaint, however, is that the restaurant (which was packed) was also very, very noisy to the point that conversation was almost impossible.

“Great food and good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

We had dinner here one night. The cream of crab soup was excellent. Everyone in our group was pleased with their dinner. The service was good and we were well looked after. If you liked Robert Mitchum, he grew up in this town and they have pictures of his family farm and several photos from his movies. It is a great place to relax and have a nice meal.

“One of a kind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Restaurants like Mitchum's are one of a kind. A very special place, beautiful atmosphere with delicious food. Good service is hard to find on the shore and Mitchum's raises the bar.
