Stopped in for lunch on the way back from a long trip. Very scenic location next to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. It's likely an excellent waterfront spot for the warmer months. But in winter it's ok too, because of all the great water views and...More

We stopped at Hemingways on a whim. Had we checked your reviews beforehand we would have kept on going. Folks got this spot on - FABULOUS waterside views, friendly service BUT overpriced, mediocre food. Our wing appetizer was so overly salted as to be inedible,...More

Reviews are a little mixed but our experience was good. We got a nice table with a view, the food was fine, so this meal on the road was a pleasant stop.

We dined for lunch and I can't explain the attraction although the location is beautiful and it's right next to the Bay Bridge. Chicken tacos were $17 and just "meh". Not memorable and Chipotle is higher quality. Fish and chips portion is small and fries...More

I had the mussels and crab dip - both were excellent!! My friends had crab cake and burger also delicious. If you want to economize, order appetizers. Make sure you sit outside, it’s an awesome view of the bay!!!

What was the question exactly? What is Hemingway's history and growth? I suppose you could go to their website and find that out. Or go to the local township where it's located and get the info. Good luck.
