Top notch restaurant. Great service. I've never had a bad meal here. My favorite is the rockfish. Nice for a special occasion.

“Friendly, competent, and tasty”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Had the chance to enjoy a meal at the Blue Heron over the weekend and enjoyed it thoroughly. Greeted warmly, offered an extensive, and reasonably priced, wine list, read a well rounded menu supplemented with a few nice "specials, and ultimately spent a very nice evening at the Blue Heron. We were three patents with a pair of college athletes in tow. Had fresh fish, crab cakes, and steak and everything was done w aplomb. It was so tasty that we even had dessert-not normal for us. We ate early, 6ish, and the restaurant was pretty empty. By the time we left it was hopping so plan accordingly if you are in town. We would certainly come again.

“Most of the guests were from the Brampton B&B!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Monday is a quiet evening in Chestertown, and the Blue Heron Cafe offers a gentle end to the day. The ladies chose the lamb, my brother-in-law chose the filet mignon, and I chose the soft crab. Everything was delicious and filling, so we had to take the carrot cake and chocolate cake to go!

“Great Place for Nice Dinner”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Had dinner on a Sat. night - reservations are a must. They actually make them for only 2 people. Everything was very good - I had the crab cakes and there was hardly any filler more like a sauce holding it together. My husband had the soft shell crabs and said they were great. The waitress made some suggestions for things and we follow what she said was good that night - she was right on. We would go back again if we are in the area.
