“Completely ignored”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

We arrived late on a Sunday, about an hour before closing. The sign said to seat yourself. The waitress completely ignored us. Nobody approached our table for the 10 to 15 minutes we were there. We got up to leave and the waitress just watched us leave and never said anything to us. If it was too late for us to order, it would have been better to tell us that than ignored us.

“Accommodating”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

By the time we got going we missed breakfast by 5 minutes. After walking around trying to find a place and not being successful, we went back to Character's. They accommodated us with a slighly breakfast fare, which we appreciated. Nice people and reasonable.

“Good food, good company and good dogs, too.”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

We ate on the back patio where the service was great and so was the food. Couldn’t help but notice that some folks even brought their well behaved dogs and were welcome to sit and eat. This is a unique place where you get to meet the owners and sample their menu of family favorites from a real live working family including a waterman! Don’t miss this place.

“Another great dinner!”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Had dinner last night for the two for $25 Thursday night special. You cannot beat this special anywhere in St Michaels. Many options to choose from and always good. I had crab cake and 3 huge shrimp. BF had a very large great steak. Fresh sides. We had a fabulous server named Denise.
