Atlantic Cod & Chips

This is my go to restaurant every time I leaving Dover, DE and coming back home to MD. I love the gorgeous view and the food omg beyond delicious. I had the fish and chips this past weekend and they are so freaking good. I had to ask for a burger roll and turn it into a fish sandwich.( I have a thing for brioche buns and my son had a burger and I couldn't resist) . This will always be my #1 restaurant across the Bay Bridge. Its my family special treat before coming over the bridge.

Blackened Mahi Tacos

The views and food are the best reason to cross the bridge or stop in for lunch/dinner. I had the Mahi Tacos and they were delicious! Big pieces of fish perfectly done. Highly recommend!

Broiled Seafood Combo

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.

Baked Oysters Hemingway

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!

Maui Grilled Salmon

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.

Seafood Tacos

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.

Grilled Rockfish Reuben

My grilled rockfish sandwich was the perfect portion and it was delicious! I was happy to find the perfect balance between the rye bread, rockfish, old bay tarter sauce, and coleslaw, coupled with the fantastic house pub chips on the side!!

Baybridge Burger*

We love making our boat day trip to Hemingways. The Bay Bridge dock personnel are friendly and very helpful. The views from Hemingways are awesome. The service is always excellent. The food is great. We also have our dog with us and the server always makes sure the dog has water. We will always include Hemingways in our Chesapeake Bay destinations.

Coconut Crusted Mahi Mahi*

This restaurant never disappoints and neither does the atmosphere! My husband and I both enjoyed the Rockfish Reuben sandwich but my teen daughter raved about the Coconut Crusted Mahi Mahi with pina colada sauce. She said the sauce made the whole dish next level and can't wait to return for this meal. Also, the crab cake sandwich is never a bad choice. Always enjoy ourselves at this restaurant

Vegan Jambalaya

Spicy, delicious. A bit pricey, but an ample serving. Vegan entrees clearly marked on the menu (thank you!) thought not all of the vegan-friendly appetizers were marked. (The buffalo cauliflower wings were vegan and were delicious) Wait staff were knowledgeable and helpful in answering all of our vegan-food related questions. We also shared the black bean burger, served in a tortilla wrap--also scrumptious.

Cucumber & Gin Lime Fizz

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.

Our Famous Black Bean Burger

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.

Our Famous Black Bean Burger

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.
