Great Brunch, one of the best I have had. Fun drinks and good Bloody Mary. Dinner was good too. A little high on the price side but unique dishes. Also, a little off the beaten path which is nice due to limited seating. I would go back for special occasions.

The french toast came with 2 slices of french toast, eggs, bacon, and fresh fruit! They were both delicious. We were looking for an... More

The waitress was nice and attentive. The food did not match. I had the shrimp salad on a croissant .it was ok. The Caesar salad was okay. A lot of dressing. Shrimp salad comes with a salad but it really was not mentioned. Dinner? Not. Went somewhere else.

My wife and I have been eating here for years whenever we come to Solomons. We have followed them from the late 80's on. The food never disappoints and the view of the marina and harbor is spectacular!
