“Very nice nautical atmosphere”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Went on a Saturday night at 7:30 PM and expecting the restaurant to be busy but half of the tables were empty, so we were seated right away. The restaurant server was very pleasant, friendly and patient, while we ordered our appetizers and entrées. Among the items we ordered was a cold seafood sample plate (Lobster tail, Shrimp, Oysters & Lump crabmeat) for $29. Very nice except for they forgot cocktail sauce and horseradish and the plate presentation looked rather bland but tasted fine. The goat cheese and beat salad tasted "ok" but we were just surprised they used canned instead of fresh beats and the salad. For entrées the crabcakes were modest size and mushy, full of mayonnaise with a side of potatoes - not really worth the $30.
We had to ask for bread were delivered warm frozen par baked rolls that had no taste.
Overall the food was fair not worth going back for second try. The restaurant atmosphere was very nice just a shame it was empty. The bar had a nice crowd that was obviously from the marina nearby. The service was pleasant although little surprised that the check was dropped before we finished our food.

“Lunch at Hemingways”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

From bottom to top the staff is incredible, friendly and fun. The food is very good too and they are constantly working to improve the menu and daily specials. We are there at least once on every trip.

“Bar on the lower level”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

We had the lump crab cake sandwich. Nicely baked. Essentially all crab. Nice. And we had the soft shell crab BLT. Outstanding. Crab, tomato, bacon, lettuce. Wonderful combination. Go and eat this sandwich. Just beyond the airport.

“Two Stars for View, Music and Drinks”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great place to go to sit, have a drink, and listen to live music while taking in a beautiful view of the Chesapeake Bay and Bridge. Kids had fun because there is grassy area to roam around, play games, throw balls, etc. As for food, get it elsewhere either before or after you visit (The Jetty on Kent Island is a good choice). They can't even make good french fries, and pre-made burger patties were undercooked.

“Horrible Food, YUCK”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The only thing good about this restaurant is the view and the band. The food and service was horrible. This is a seafood restaurant, and my daughter was served fish that was spoiled! Argh. Just an aweful experience. AVOID this restuarant!
