Thank you for the positive comments. Bizotto's is certainly a good restaurant, but I am not sure why you would use a review of the Charlotte to promote another venue. Thanks for the business, and please do come again and allow us an opportunity to...More

Great food, wine, service . . . and all of it downstairs from a charming room. But they want 100 characters, so these are worth repeating: Great food, wine, service . . . and all of it downstairs from a charming room.

The award-winning restaurant features cuisine that is prepared using many Eastern Shore products. It is with great pride that we support local watermen, farmers, and area businesses. Because much of our fare is made from locally available ingredients, the menu changes frequently, often daily. Everything is house-made, including the ice cream! Our bar is well stocked, and the extensive wine list offers selections from around the world.
