“St. Michael's Best”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

While attending the 2013 Easton, MD Plein-Aire Fine Art Competition we visited this gem in St. Michael for dinner with friends. While I can honestly say most all of the places named in TripAdvsior here were excellent, 208 Talbot was a stand-out winner. While waiting for our friends to arrive, we had time for a drink at the bar. Spoke to the bartender who just happened to be the owner. We requested a “Fresh Ingredient” Margarita which he stated was the only way he makes them. So we knew at this point good things would be coming for the dinner gathering! We all had the specials and they were fantastic. The flounder stuffed with Crab was just a delight. Each dish was prepared to perfection and our server was attentive, informed and spot on describing each dish. Overall a must try when staying in St. Michaels.

Ever go to a place, sit at the bar, have great wine and terrific food....and meet new friends? Great experience at a terrific joint in St. Michaels. Not the least expensive meal, but the experience made for a terrific night. Will be sure to return....

“Perfection”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

While spending an extended weekend in St. Michael's we happened upon 208 Talbot. I was raised near the Chesapeake Bay, have eaten seafood all my life, and consider myself a connoisseur of good seafood. This was the best soft shell crab I have ever eaten. I would recommend the food, the service, the wine list and the ambiance of this fine restaurant.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This place should be ranked #1. The service was outstanding and everything was cooked to perfection. The crab soup was to die for as was the crab spring roles. The seafood papparadelle was so good. The soft shell crabs were the best my husband had ever had!! We were very surprised to find a restaurant of this caliber in the little town of St. Michaels!! Can't wait to go back!!

“Fabulous dining”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We chose this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary while visiting the area for a long weekend. Everything was excellent. The crab soup and the summer crab salad were very tasty. The seafood papparadelle had just the right amount of seasoning and the fish was cooked to perfection, The desserts were so tempting but we had no room after the fabulous dinner! The setting was perfect for a romantic eating and Julia, our waitress, was great.
