The Broiled seafood platter was awesome. I read a review on the crab cakes indicating they were not good. So wrong! Everything was spectacular and the drink, the salad, and the view was fantastic! Highly recommend and I will be back.
I've probably had these about 4 times within the last month! I recently found this restaurant again and have been here almost every weekend. The baked oysters are always my first go to! They are made so well and perfectly cooked. It's not overly seasoned, baked or filled with cheese. It has the perfect proportion of crab, bacon, garlic and parmesan cheese. I am literally obsessed with them!
I tried the shrimp tacos and the fish/chips! It was so good. My family loved it so much that our rehearsal dinner for my wedding is there! THE BEST FOOD AND VIEW.
the BEST crab dip on the island!
The food was awesome the ambiance was beautiful. We caught an absolutely gorgeous sunset on the top side deck and closed the place down. Greatly recommend this spot for a date night or just a good look.
This restaurant implemented great measures for diners to fell comfortable and safe during Covid 19. The service was excellent as well! The burger I ordered was perfectly cooked! My spouse had the fish and chips And thoroughly enjoyed it. We are returning today for the view and more creat food.
Our first visit to Hemingways after retiring from New England to Maryland. I tried the Maui Grilled Salmon. The presentation was pretty, the salmon was cooked perfectly with a nice sweet sauce. The portion size with the potatoes and asparagus was just right and the price was very reasonable. Ate indoors and the view of the bridge was terrific. The best dining experience we've had since we moved here back in September.
I had the buffalo shrimp tacos and they were the best I ever had. So much flavor and easy to eat. I would recommend this to anyone who wants authentic shrimp tacos.
I live in Centreville and I love going to Hemmingways for the live music and sunsets. They have the best view for sunsets and their drinks are delicious. Food is always great as well. Best sunsets on the eastern shore.
Incredible dish and every bright tastes like you are biting into a tastevof heaven. Impeccably seasoned with love and care of vegans. This designed dish was made from heaven! I was able to relish this dish on June 26 of last year to come and honor my Dad who passed away in May. Ironically our birthdays are both on June 26. With that I plan to come back to Hemingway every June 26 to celebrate Dad and I.
Amazing! Perfect crabcake and beautiful view. Sat right away abd service was great. Definitely worth a day trip from WV.
The absolute BEST!! You cannot beat Hemingway's. Te nicest people on the water.
Wow is what I can say and with Happy Hour Prices really Wow!
Amazing fish and chips! Light & fluffy and fried to perfection. Super yummy cole slaw on the side was a perfect touch. Can't wait to come back!!
I will say this, Hemingway's is by far one of the best restaurants that I've been to. I typically go to restaurants in the Washington, DC area that are on the higher end side, but I am so glad that I found this GEM! I went to Hemingways this past weekend when they had their first opening since Covid-19 and I was HIGHLY impressed by their customer service, by their ability to run things smoothly, and the ability to attend to every one promptly. I even liked the fact that they wiped down the tables and chairs between each customer(s) that was seated. Overall, I am so excited to make Hemingways my dining place for 2020 spring and summer. Well done Hemingway's...WELL DDONE! :)
Had a wonderful lunch here before shutdown! Delicious food and great atmosphere! Can't wait to get back to enjoy your food this summer!
Baked Oysters Rockefeller
Loved the ambience! I had the baked oysters Rockefeller before and as soon as I saw the plate, I was excited. I was delighted and definitely will order it again. I highly recommend Hemingway's :)
On a hot summer day Hemingway's is the place to be! Sit outside and enjoy the breeze and atmosphere with some of the best sunsets. Hemingway's is not another Sysco reheat frozen food restaurant- they locally source items and the watermelon salad is my go to during the summer! Its fresh crisp and delicious. Pair it with an appetizer, maybe some hot wings and you are in for a treat.
This restaurant has it all! Fantastic food, top notch drinks and the view is to die for! Not a better sunset anywhere to be found! You owe yourself a dining experience that delights on ALL levels. Take it from a regular customer ....Go to Hemingway's!
We had the crispy Brussels sprouts with bacon and they were absolutely phenomenal. Cooked to perfection and completely addicting. Some of the best Brussels sprouts I've ever had.
I'm from NJ and every time I'm in town I have to stop here for the Fish and Chips or the Buffalo Shrimp Tacos! Both are absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend
Sat on the spotless upper deck with beautiful unobstructed views (glass railings) of the Chesapeake and the Bay Bridge. Sipped on the Gin cucumber cocktail, ordered the rockfish tenders, brussels sprouts and sweet potato fries. Great server who was personable while respecting social distancing. Great spot, great staff, unmatched location on the Chesapeake Bay. No other restaurant along the entirety of either shore of the Chesapeake to have the totality of the Bay experience: panoramic view of the Bay at the Bay Bridge, beautiful grounds around the restaurant, adjacent beautifully maintained marina while enjoying all the Bay areas most popular foods at great prices.
The Black Bean Hand held is simply delicious and satisfying. This restaurant has done a wonderful job assuring it patrons that it is not only has spectacular views and great food, but provides a safe dining experience during this pandemic. Each time a table was used by patrons, a team came in to spray the entire surface on the chairs and tables to assure safety for the next diners. This was my first dine out experience since the lock down and will likely be my go to restaurant of choice for the foreseeable future.
Best crab dip I have ever tasted!!!!!! And the hostess, bartender and all severs were in PPE and professional and kind. THANKS for a wonderful first trip for my travel buddy and I! Great views of the bay bridge and the Bay!
Its hard to find a place that will cater to both meat eaters and vegans and most of the time places get it wrong. This is how you do it correctly. This Burger is delicious and i love it served in the tortilla .. never seen that before. Highly recommend if you have a vegan or vegetarian in your group.
This is the most refreshing cocktail I've ever had! Shout out to the bartenders for creating this "summertime in a glass"
So delish! Best of both worlds! Both crab soups are amazing and paired together a taste bud explosion of crab amd summer.
Absolutely delicious food, well prepared and seasoned
EXCELLENT CRAB DIP! AND EVEN BETTER VIEWS OF THE BAY! GORGEOUS SUNSETS!
Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna
Came for Appetizers at happy hour paired with shrimp makes an awesome meal. Great favor and presentation!
This is put simply the best soup I have ever had!! Amazing flavor..not too heavy!!!
love Hemmingway's the ambience the food and the drinks. My family comes here often and the views are unparalleled I highly recommend Hemmingway's for a casual or even a special celebration.
Hemingway's hands down wins for the view, delicious food, decor and highly attentive, well trained staff. Hemingway's has a beautiful outdoor seating area!!! Make this restaurant a must go on your list!!!
The best burger in town. As a vegetarian, I pride myself on the delicacy of a quality great tasting natural burger. Let me tell you it is filled with wholesome natural ingredients that make your mouth water and quiver with an ah ha moment of I can't believe it's so darn tasty!!
INCREDIBLE happy hour doing quarantine! Nothing like spending the day at the beach at nearby Terapin State Park, and enjoying Hemingway's afterwards. Thank you for amazing and timely service, pickup was easy, and not to mention-the drinks are delicious!
Hemingway's Jumbo Lump Crab Cake Dinner
Go ahead and order this standard entrée so you can get on with your life. It never disappoints! Start with a cup of the Cream of Crab soup and a bitingly-cold Sauvignon Blanc. The service, the atmosphere, and the quality are consistently spot-on. I love this place!
