Gertrude's food is reliably fresh and delicious. Great eastern shore recipes are always on the menu, along with more adventurous items. Soups, salad, great fried chicken. I can never make up my mind.

We came here with great expectations for exceptional food and were disappointed. My friend had visited previously and raved about the Eastern shore cuisine... she , too, was disappointed. The base of the crab soup was good , but the middle of both our bowls was cold. The zuchettes and oysters were both over battered and therefore, had a heavy... More

I stopped in for a light lunch while at the museum. The beer selection was so tempting I had to indulge. I ordered the half sandwich and cup of soup combo, tuna fish sandwich and cream of crab soup.

A group of four of us opted for the sophisticated charm of Gertrude's for our new year eve meal. When we arrived only half of the tables were filled for the second seating yet the restaurant required a credit card to hold the table- fine. Once we were seated a grouchy waitress came to greet us. She was very nonchalant,... More

Slow Service No Bread Served. Table next to us had bread basket dropped on 2 people Apple butter everywhere. Meal service for 4 was also dropped too. Shrimp Salad sandwich was very good. Crab cake with Greek salad at an extra cost was also good.

Had not been in a number of years. Not sure why. Will be going again soon. A fun, noisy brunch. Good service, I really liked the Greek omelet, my wife recommends the eggs benedict Gertrude, and the kids polished of their steak and eggs and pancakes. The coffee, I believe it was Zeke's, was flavorful.
