“Nice Restaurant in a Nice Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

Chestertown is worth a visit.

It's a pre-revolution mostly brick town like many others south of the Mason-Dixon.

This restaurant was full, but not crowded at 1 PM on a week day.

Everything was nice.

Save time for a walk along the Chester River.

“How about a big fat zero for four meals!!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

One shared appetizer, two soups, and four entrees = wrong appetizer brought to table with the one chosen from the menu, and discussed with the waitress, no longer available, two very good crab soups, the worst crab imperial ever(no lump back fin at all and the texture was a cloying beige paste), a "roast beef" which was slices of pot roast, a salad with bone-dry chicken upon it, and another salad which was "maybe so-so".. Had there been any alcohol available, we might have been able to "drink this meal pretty". I don't like to knock businesses, but this one just fails to try hard enough. My two stars is a charitable rating.

“One of the Best Meals I've Ever Had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Let's start with the awesome bread - soft white rolls and apple bread. It's hard not to fill up with it. I ordered the crab cakes and they are literally the best I've ever had. No filler just crab cooked the perfection. Then I enjoyed the mixed vegetables - sautéed zucchini, squash, cherry tomatoes and a little onion. My wife had salmon and she too felt that it was one of her best ever. Service was quick and friendly. This is the place to go in Chestertown. Good job J.R.
