Everything we have tried we have liked. The service is top notch. Not a huge menu but that's not a bad thing. Like their ice tea with a shot of raspberry sauce. They let you pour it in yourself so you can add as much or as little as you want.

Get the savory cheesecake appetizer! You only need one appetizer per 2 ppl, seriously. Also the desserts were huge and delicious... got a blueberry pie w/ice cream.

Though not on the water we had drinks and appetizers on the bar side while we waited for a table on the dinner side and everyone was so nice and the food was great. I will definitely go back when I return to Solomon's Island.

My favorite date night on the island. Food is always fantastic. Service is friendly and for the most part efficient. Pretty much always get something off the specials list. Had a Greek Gyro Eggs Benedict for brunch on time... definitely top 5 breakfasts of my life. Always very good... Sometimes I'm blown way.

We had the best meal we've ever had in southern Maryland! We were celebrating our anniversary and chose this culinary gem in Solomons. My wife had shrimp with grits and I had scallops with wild rice and vegetables. Both were accompanied by exquisite sauces. They also have an excellent unfiltered wheat beer from Portland, Maine which we found quite nice.... More

Eat here January thru March 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016. Food is always good, the staff is always friendly, and the atmosphere is very relaxing. It is a little expensive but worth it. I can usually make two meals out of a meal because the good quality of the food fills me up faster then other restaurants. My Husband and... More

Small but cozy. Service is great and the food is wonderful. I have had many meals at CD and they have always been consistently very good. Please try their shepherds pie

We had heard this was very good from the locals. No reservations. So we were told to be prepared to wait. We got there right after it opened and were seated. I was looking forward to some great seafood. The seafood on the menu was all salmon? Here we are at The Chesapeake Bay! Where is the seafood? We ordered... More

It was one of those blustery rainy days and we were lucky to get a table as soon as we walked in, (No booking ahead.) The food was outstanding, the service incredible and we have the loveliest server with the biggest smile. This small restaurant had been recommended to us again and again and I don't know why we waited... More

CD Cafe is an excellent restaurant serving fresh seafood and local favorites. It is small, often producing a waiting line in the entryway of the building. We had an excellent salmon dinner and a rock fish dinner that was similarly excellent. A house Chardonnay and Creme Brulee topped off the evening. The food could not have been better. One of...
