“Super cozy, worth a stop”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Went there for lunch and had a delicious crab melt sandwich. Service was relaxed. Was there with family and kids during weekday and can imagine this place getting very crowded during summer and on weekends. Didn't have dinner, but the dinner menu looked delicious. Breakfast menu looked great. I'd recommend calling ahead to see if reservations are needed for dinner.

“Wonderful little place”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Last time we visited the area, we did not go here, because we thought it served only breakfast and lunch. This time, the owners of The Black Walnut B&B let us kow they serve dinner only on Fridays and Saturdays.

Dinner was very nice, with fresh local ingredients and a nice atmoshere. Also, it is a BYOB, so stop at the Tilghman Island Country Store and pick up a bottle of wine or two.

“BYOB with Style & Grace!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Two if by Sea is a combination of a 5 & 10 lunch counter & a traditional sit down restaurant. But there is nothing 5 & 10 about this great little place. As stated in other reviews, Harry only serves the freshest of foods. Nothing but the best is used for all 3 meals. Breakfast is plentiful & of course good. I love coffee & this place has great coffee! Lunch is affordable & easy to eat in or take out. But let me tell you about dinner.

1st. Reservations on Friday & Saturday night are a must. Seating in the dinning room is limited and service hours are short. So forewarned is forearmed.

2nd. The menu is short but excellent. The crab cakes, roasted pork & steak are the best of an outstanding menu. There is nothing bad on the menu. Period. The deserts are great and the portions of the main course do leave you room for try the truly homemade pies 7 cakes.

3rd. Service is fantastic. The staff is bright, knowledgeable and engaging. To say the least, if you dine there a 2nd time, they will know your name and great as such.

4th. Atmosphere. Now this is the fun part. The whole establishment sells the usual beach, island stuff except that it is all made their on the island, so the amounts of product is limited and the prices reflect it. You can see custom made pirates mugs, local water colors & other stuff on the shelves along the walls. The cool thing is that it is not in your face!

Conclusion. Stop by for breakfast or hang out for lunch. You will enjoy yourself. But do you and your travel companions a favor. Make reservations for dinner and enjoy!

“Delicious Stop!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Loved our delicious breakfast at Two If By Sea during our stay on Tilghman Island. Liked the fried potatoes so much that we even bought some of Chef Henry's spice mix to see if we can recreate them back home!! A fabulous breakfast at a great price!!!

“Fresh, fresh, fresh”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We enjoyed a perfect dinner here in September 2012. On the recommendation of our server, Alex, I ordered the rockfish ("fresh today") and it was delectable, prepared in two beautiful fillets topped with lump crab in a light butter sauce. The seasonings brought out the flavor of the fish in a way that I've not experienced before. Side dishes of green beans and roasted potatoes complemented the preparation of the fish. My companion enjoyed his fish and chips, but he did keep reaching across to my plate for bites of the rockfish! Our only regret was that we were too full to try dessert. The atmosphere is very homey, and the wait staff is quite attentive. All in all, a lovely evening!
