I couldn't eat my entire meal...chicken with a white sauce, mashed red potatoes and green beans. I left without eating. Much too salty. Bob had Rock Fish. The skin was salty but other than that it was... More

After a couple of visits that were just a bit discouraging, it is good to see that Lemon Leaf Café has returned to its greatness. A local favorite, their Sunday Breakfast is truly a pleasure.

Grilled peach slices and almonds were a superb addition. The crab vegetable soup was thick and full of crab meat and mixed veggies in a... More

The restaurant is clean and charming. I had the "award winning" cream of crab soup and a salad with a crab cake on top. Both were excellent! Service was very good as well.

The staff was very accommodating and the food was simply wonderful! Nice atmosphere. The soft shell crabs were well prepared. The scalloped potatoes were some of the best I have ever had. It was a great evening.

Chestertown has delicious local tomatoes this time of the year that are available everywhere...especially at the weekend farmers mark right across the street. However, the tomatoes that are consistently used are... More
