The Lemon Leaf had been recommended by the staff at The Great Oak Manor where we were staying. It did not disappoint. Excellent food and service. The Jr's Pub next door is associated with the restaurant. Wide variety on the menu. So many local residents dine at the Lemon Leaf. A good sign .

A coworker and I came for lunch, around noon on 2/9. It was not very busy, but several diners seated after us were served before us. When our food was delivered the waitress informed us that the crabcake had to be remade. It would have been nice to have known that, instead of left hanging. Food was delicious, would recommend!

After enjoying a lunch with my wife here last summer, I was looking for a destination for a motorcycle ride on a warm winter day. I chose Chestertown, planning lunch at the Lemon Leaf Cafe after an hour ride. Upon entering, there were two people waiting at the counter in front of me, and a few minutes later a party... More

I have eaten here several times and wanted to review again. Chestertown is a really sweet, small town, worth a day trip from, well, anywhere. It doesn't have many places to eat but this is in my top 5 here for sure. It is a low key place, you don't have to get too dressed up, and the menu has... More

We stopped in for dinner while on a weekend getaway. Our server Kristen took great care of us. It was a chilly evening but the restaurant was charming and cozy. We enjoyed tomato soup, grilled cheese, salad with amazing balsamic dressing, onion rings and chicken & dumplings. Everything was delicious and well prepared. We really enjoyed our visit and will...

Stopped by for some dessert. The peach cobbler was excellent. It was served in a large water glass which made it a little difficult to eat, especially with ice cream on top. The staff were nice enough. I would go back for the cobbler.

We came here based on Trip Advisor reviews and recommendations from local friends, and we were not disappointed. Very friendly, attentive service (thanks, Heather!) and such a great menu it was hard to make a choice. Lovely evening. If I were to make one suggestion it would be to turn the lights down a bit. Bright as day it was... More

I love eating here! My daughter and I are both celiac's and this place can not be more accommodating! All the staff is knowledgeable and the chef. They even have GF bread for appetizers. They can tweak a lot of the items to make them gf. Aside from that their food is wonderful! I have never gotten a bad meal... More

We were following our noses on a fine early fall day when hunger brought us to this wonderful cafe in Chestertown. The meals were well prepared and served in an elegant way. They were just plain yummy, and we left with smiles on our faces. This is the kind of place one would want to linger and look out the... More
