We have eaten here years ago and it is still as good - a great change from your everyday seafood. Excellent service with a good menu and wines. Definitely a step up from picking crabs by the water! Our only complaint was that the short ribs had way too much horseradish which detracted from the lovely meat and sauce. Pricey,... More

While the food and service were excellent, the decor seemed drab. For fine dining, just a bit of color, by adding some fresh flowers and a candle on the tables, would have surely brightened this old timer up. The servers obviously handled the busy evening (a Weds) very smoothly. The rainbow trout special and rack of lamb were wonderfully prepared.... More

One of the things I really look forward to when visiting St. Michaels is dinner at 208. I can always count on an elegant meal, but still reasonably priced for what you get. They have an excellent selection of appetizers and entrees. The desserts are a nice finish to a great meal.

Chef David and his wife Valerie have assembled a wonderful restaurant which is evident from the wide variety on the menu, the high quality staff and the clean comfortable surroundings. Our family of five, ate there tonight and left with smiles all around - coming from 1st class Soft Shell Crabs, Jumbo lump Crab Cakes, that can't be beat, a... More

Had dinner at 208 last Saturday evening. Was offered 5:30 or 9:30 as a reservation - not quite cosmopolitan enough to do 9:30, so reluctantly took 5:30. We were at the table until maybe 7:15 or so, and there were still a number of empty tables around us, so I'm not sure why we were forced to take 5:30. That... More

Been visiting friends here for a few years and went here for the first time... A "six" for food, wine and service... We had four different appetizers, four different dinners and four different deserts washed down by an amazing French wine... Expensive but worth every bite and dip... I will be back!!!

Great food start to finish. Crab cake and Soft Shells were the best we've ever had. The service was outstanding and very friendly. We will return whenever we travel to St. Michaels.

Excellent fine dinning food and service with casual attire. The decision of which entree to order was daunting. They all sounded outstanding but we only had room for one. I had the veal & lump crab and my guest the halibut. Both were prepared perfectly, well seasoned with well sized portion. Our server was attentive without hovering and made sure... More
