Looking over the Chesapeake Bay with a view of the Bay Bridge is always great. Doing it over a nice meal is even better. The good: great food - our stuffed jalapenos were perfectly done, my burger was spot on and my wife's salmon club was also outstanding. The not so good: Her chowder came out luke warm, and they...

We visited for a Friday dinner and enjoyed the great sunset along with the tempting seafood. Despite the busy time, the service was excellent and featured helpful suggestions. This is a very pleasant place to enjoy good food and lovely sunsets across Chesapeake Bay. We were very happy to have found it.

Without a doubt or discussion the very best view on the Eastern Shore relative to the Chesapeake Bay and Kent Island. Since its remodel I am not sure exactly how many different types of managerial staff and culinary staff has gone through this establishment but never have had the opportunity to finally get it right and discover what it is...

I recently saw this great looking restaurant out of the corner of my eye while traveling east over the Bay Bridge. Now returning to the west I decided to locate and have lunch. Wow- hard to find but after instincts of "it's on the water" finally found it. GREAT VIEWS - even on a foggy day. The server was pleasant... More

Why on earth did you take one of the best things off your menu then replace it with a seafood wrap?! If anything take the bland mahi tacos off and put the shrimp tacos back on. I mean seriously this one dish my wife and come to your restaurant for. Our waitress even admitted she didn't understand why because she... More

A delightful experience in a relaxed nautical setting, Hemingway is not just for Summer. Sure in the warm months, the restaurant is known for its multi-tier outdoor decks with convivial happy hours and some of the best Maryland Blue crabs around. In a recent Valentine's Week visit, the special pre-fixed menu was chock full of three course meals including their... More

Last year we saw Hemingway's Restaurant as we were exiting the Chesapeake Bay Bridge on the north side. So, this year we were determined to try it, and we're glad we did. The setting of Hemingway's is stunning. It's on an outcropping into the Bay and the vista is wonderful. I believe you can see all the way to Quantico.... More

Whenever discussing local restaurants, which are good and are not, Hemingway's never seems to get mentioned. Today I went there and I think I figured out why. The view of the Chesapeake Bay and the bridge is wonderful, but otherwise this place is not terrible and it's not great. Therefore it would not be fair to suggest you avoid this... More

My wife and I travel from the DC Metro area to the Maryland Eastern Shore 3-4 times a year, and have made it our tradition to stop at Hemingway's for lunch both coming and going. In the summer the outside deck is delightful, and very popular. In the colder months the view from the dining room is still great, and... More

Great food and many relics of the Maryland bay history. Convenient location if you are heading east from the bay bridge.
