We watched college football in here on a rainy Saturday. They have a few tvs in the bar area. The view is wonderful. We had wings, oyster stew, and fish tacos. The wings and oyster stew were both good. The fish tacos were just okay....More

Horrible food horrible service filthy bathroom filthy table. I think that about sums it up. Hostess was more worried about taking an application from a prospective employee than seating us. Beverages remained empty for the duration of dinner. Table was so filthy it was sticky....More

This is a nice waterfront restaurant, with a beautiful view near the mouth of the Chester River. We had a crabcake, which was small and lacking in lumps, and a sandwich. The food was just ok to good.

Great food. Best place to eat on a nice day is out on the deck. Watching the boats and the water and having a good meal is one of the best things to do in Chestertown. It feels like home when we visit. Love everything...More

We were with you about a month ago and my wife had a plate of Asparagus with chicken on it. She has talked about it ever since. We live 150 miles from you so before we drive down for dinner, I wanted to make sure that you still had that on the menu. Please let me know. Thanks..................Dot and Tony Klein
