We ate at the Fishwhistle for my husband’s birthday. The service was excellent and the food was delicious! I had the jambalaya, which was amazing. The service was excellent, as well. We will visit again!

Had dinner there after our tour of Washington College. Easy to get to, great view of the Chester River and friendly folks in the restaurant. We wanted to get something to eat at a local place run by local people and that is easy here...More

The food is good, nothing spectacular. The service was ok the hostess wasn't that friendly. My daughter and son in law enjoyed the crab cakes. Desert sizes huge.

While visiting Chestertown, we decided to stop at The Fish Whistle based on an enthusiastic recommendation, and we were not disappointed. We both asked for salads. I got Blackened Monk Fish over a Caesar Salad, and my wife had the Mini-Crabcakes over a Caesar Salad....More

Visited last week for all-you-can-eat oysters. Oysters were good but service seriously lacking. Our favorite waitress, Ann, was not there and we were told she “didn’t work here anymore”. That’s too bad because she was friendly and efficient. Probably won’t be a regular here anymore...More

had the chance to eat at the Fish Whistle during the annual Down Rgging of many tall ships. i had the fish and chips and my wife had crab cakes. Plenty of fish and chips but the crab cakes were very small for the price.
