Not pub grub. Nothing ordinary about the cuisine offered here. Gourmet meals each and every night, always coupled with prompt, friendly service. Unique to southern Maryland is stuffed ham. I can’t even explain what it is, only to say it specially cured ham stuffed with...More

One of my normal Thursday night dinner spots. Special menu is always interesting. Food is always good but can sometimes take a while. Service is inconsistent

Highly recommended from NAS base folks, it was behind a door at the back of deli/convenience store Gave us samples of stuffed ham. Yet I ordered crab cake sandwich. Food and service was top notch. The perfect hole in the wall, off the beaten path,...More

We always enjoy at least one meal at Chief's when visiting St' Mary's County, our home of the past. As expected, our food was really good - excellent quality, well prepared, and plentiful. We were a bit disappointed with the service on this lunchtime visit....More

We went down to that corner of the county to check out the Drayden African American schoolhouse (another great find, but that's a different review). The schoolhouse was open over the lunch hours, so we decided to eat lunch in the area. A friend recommended...More

This place is off-the-beaten-path, and frankly, doesn't look like much from the outside. And the name "bar" could give the impression there is no food here. But the dining room is clean and welcoming, and the food is very, very good. I bet if you...More
