My wife and I stopped off in Chestertown for the night and decided to check out the Fish Whistle for dinner. The nice breeze blowing over the water made for a delightful evening. We shared great house made onion rings. My wife's fried soft shell...More

I have to say that we only had drinks at the bar that adjoins the restaurant. I did hear good things about the menu and the portions are big. This seems to be a locals spot that is open to the tourist crowd as well....More

On a road trip with friends - food was good but we were a group of 5 at 3pm on a Sunday and were each charged a 20% group gratuity charge and an individual service charge (tourist tax)?

I've been to the Fish Whistle about 5 times while studying at Washington College. It's the only waterfront restaurant in Chestertown, and I always enjoy the crab dip with pretzel bread. The Fish Whistle is a bit small, but the atmosphere is bright and the...More

We were with you about a month ago and my wife had a plate of Asparagus with chicken on it. She has talked about it ever since. We live 150 miles from you so before we drive down for dinner, I wanted to make sure that you still had that on the menu. Please let me know. Thanks..................Dot and Tony Klein
