Their lovely new location is surpassed only by the Lemon Leaf's delicious food and great service. I started with the split pea soup, which is not a typical choice for me but the day was cold and raw...I loved it. It had an exotic spice added which brought it up to a gourmet level. Yummy! I followed with the shrimp stuffed with crabmeat entree; delicious, and the veggies were a perfect medley of winter squash and green beans...crisp and tasty. My friend had the cream of crab soup...always a favorite. Her orange roughy entree was perfectly enhanced with an oven-roasted lemon sauce. Our waitress Meg was pleasant, accommodating and efficient. This was a wonderful ore-theater treat!

We wanted to try the new location and went in October..... and after waiting 15 minutes for service we placed our drink order and since we had to wait so long, we placed our food order at the same time. 45 minutes later, we recieved our food and then our drinks finally arrived. No excuses for such bad service. No complementary drink to make up for a bad experience. We want this restaurant to do well, but this was a sour visit.

Food is very good. Award winning crab soup is outstanding - be careful because it will fill you up very quickly. Loved the grilled romaine salad. Table had a mix of entrees, salads and sandwiches and everyone enjoyed their choice. Fried olives are fantastic!

We heard about this place originally being around the corner & a smaller venue, so we were a bit concerned that success might have spoiled them--but, not so! Our party thoroughly enjoyed the creamy crab bisque and the crab cake sandwiches--not to mention the fabulous stuffed rockfish and the delicious salads. The wait staff was friendly & efficient and kept all the accompaniments coming right on time. It was a delightful experience and I would highly recommend it.

My son and I took a Saturday drive and ended up in Chestertown, MD. We were directed to the Lemon Leaf Cafe by a passerby on the street. We were seated near the front window and ordered from a lovely menu whose pages were made from small grocery bags. We ordered Iced Tea (unsweeted) and it was clear and freshly brewed. The refills kept coming. We ordered Cream of Crab Soup (delicious) and Crab Cake Sandwich (favorites of ours). Some of the best we have ever had. We commented that we had probably never had a superior bowl of soup. They offer a full menu of items so there is definitely something to please every palate. We will make it a destination location for sure. The town is on the water and lovely historic significance and nice shops. It is a lovely drive from Annapolis (about an hour) from where we live. More than worth the drive on all counts.
