Charming Place for Water View Dining

This was my first dining experience for lunch in Solomons. CD is a cozy little place with great water views, unique dishes, plentiful servings at a reasonable price. Their deserts are also unique yummy!

Stopped in for lunch one afternoon. Intimate setting with a great water view. Sign on the door asking you to turn off your cell phone. After looking at the menu for a minute I thought I had it narrowed down,but then the waitress recited the specials. I chose the gyro and house salad. A combination of lamb and beef with... More

Our experience at the CD Café was fun and the area was a joy to visit. I must say the service was above normal but the food was a bit spicy. In all fairness I shall try it again.

This small restaurant has a charming little bar in the back that is a warm spot for drinks and delicious appetizers. No view or anything, but the bartender is a great guy, and it just feels comfy. The restaurant does not take reservations, so timing is important. If you have to wait a while, the bar is a very nice... More

I have dined at this restaurant for many years and always enjoy the food and the yummy desserts. Wish they took reservations and the restaurant was larger.

This is undoubtedly the best place to eat in Pax River. The quality of the food outclasses everything else around and the service is of a high standard. There is one very significant flaw and drawback however which is the inability to reserve a table. As the place is quite small - only around 30 covers - it fills up... More

We had a wonderfully quaint little anniversary dinner at CD Cafe. It had been years since we had visited and we are so glad that we did! Every bite was flavorful and delicious. The pictures say it all. Parking is right in front along the street and the server was excellent.

It took us 3 attempts to get into the CD Cafe, due to it's popularity it gets very busy and unfortunately they don't do bookings(!), and it is a small place with only about 8 tables but we were very glad we persevered as the food was excellent. As with most restaurants around this areas seafood is the prime menu... More
