Diner Reviews
  • "What a lovely place to eat, drink and relax by the water. My crab cakes were tender and 90% lump crab. My husband's rockfish imperial was perfectly cooked. We were there on a Sunday between the brunch and the dinner crowds. Everything was just right."

  • "We met our daughter there for lunch this past saturday, which happened to be one of the most beautiful days so far ( now that winter is over). We had a fabulous lunch and a great view of the Chesapeake Bay."

  • "This is the best restaurant on the island. From great tasting food to friendly service that makes you feel like family. Will ALWAYS go back!!!"

  • "We enjoyed the Sunday brunch as a special occasion birthday celebration. We were the first to arrive and buffet service was ready and friendly service. Plenty of good choices. Staff helped make it a special celebration!"

  • "We had the restaurant week menu. We had been there three weeks prior for brunch and enjoyed that very much. We went again to see if we would like the dinner menu as well. We were disappointed. The Rock Fish in the risotto was VERY OLD. It should have been VERY fresh considering the location. The quality of the food overall was fair. We would not go again for dinner considering the normal menu pricing if the food we had is any indication of the quality of dinner we would receive on a normal visit."

  • "We spend almost every Friday night here since we first discovered this delightful place after moving to the island. We love the views of sunset and Bay Bridge traffic including the ships passing by. The food and service are great. Our particular favorite among the wait staff is Stephanie, but we have had attentive and friendly service from everyone. We look forward to bringing guests here often."

  • "The view of sunset over the Bay Bridge makes this a great spot. The food is very good and the seafood fresh. If you have bypassed this place for years and never stopped in, give it a try. You will be glad you did."

  • "We enjoyed a lovely meal overlooking a fantastic view of the Chesapeake Bay and the twinkling lights on the Bay Bridge. My husband enjoyed an appetizer of fried oysters with a flavorful dipping sauce - they were crispy and cooked to perfection. I began my meal with the house salad which was very fresh. We both had rockfish - my husband's was enhanced with a lovely crab imperial and served with a side of vegetables. My rockfish was wrapped in bacon and served on a bed of sautéed spinach and arugula and it was adorned with with paper thin crispy fried potato curls. We were way too full for dessert! The hostess and wait staff were all very pleasant and our food was served promptly and well presented. We will definitely visit again."

  • "Haven't been to Hemingway's in a while. I was surprised to see the renovation it had undergone. I was delighted and impressed. It was open and well lit but not blinding. The staff was very warm and welcoming. The appetizers and meals were brought out promptly. The food was light and flavorful. It was well prepared. I might also add, I was pleased with their participation in the internet era. I was able to make a reservation on line. How very convenient."

  • "We went to Hemingway's for New Years and had a great meal! No so on Valentines day, food was poor , crab cakes were stringy, salad was so small it could have fit in a ice cream bowl. Fresh berries - was almost all sherbet and 5 berries!!! .service so so. We will not be returning anytime soon."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "4 of us went to Heminway's excited to try the specials for Valentines day. Two had lobster, one top sirloin, one crab cakes. We even shared a few bits of each. Top sirloin was under cooked (asked for medium, got rare) - it was stringy and unchewable - could hardly cut through it. The lobster was dry. The crab cakes were not up to Maryland standard by any means. The waitress was friendly and very good. Truthfully, it was the worst meal I've had in living on the Eastern shore in 8 years. I will not return and not recommend it."

  • "You see Hemingway's every time you cross the Bay Bridge. It will only take one stop to make it a favorite. Food was excellent! Service was fabulous! It's a great spot to meet up with friends and family or for a special occasion."

  • "The ambiance and the setting are fantastic. I was looking forward to a really great crab bisque and what I got tasted like a bowl of heavy whipping cream sprinkled with paprika and old bay. It was quite flavorless, runny and contained bits of cartilage which drives me insane. The rest of the meal was mediocre at best. What I can say though, was that the service was filled with smiles and was quite fast! The place just needs a fresher chef."

  • "Our server was very nice and I did appreciate her recommendation. Our dinner was very good. I love the view and the way the restaurant is decorated. I will be going back."

  • "Our most recent experience at Hemmingways left a lot to be desired. The hostess was cold and unwelcoming to us and to the party seated ahead of us. Our waitress seemed most concerned about turning the table and getting us out of there. Over the course of our meal, we were only offered one beverage and no refresh, our main entrees were delivered before the appetizer was finished, and, upon hearing that we were not interested in dessert, we were promptly given our check, no offer of coffee or an after dinner drink. The meals were also nothing to write home about. Overcooked salmon and a mound of white rice (unseasoned) for my wife, and an average grilled rockfish. The best part of our dining tonight was the dessert we prepared at home."

  • "The restaurant atmosphere was great and so was our server but I would have to say I was not at all impressed with the food and neither was my family, especially for the price."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Great appetizers and entrees! Amazing service. My husband said he always had a new drink before he finished his last. We went for NYE dinner but I think brunch and lunch would be even better because of the view!!"

  • "Our first visit was just my husband and I on our way to a concert in Baltimore; very romantic to see the lights on the bay at night. Both of our dinners were excellent. Our second visit was with our daughters and their husbands. Again, the fireplace roaring and snow falling outside the huge "bay" windows overlooking the bay and bridge provided a spectacular background. And again, everyone loved their food selections. This third visit was a perfect meeting mid-point between suburban Washington, D.C. and Dover, DE to "swap" my Mom after her visit with us. We sat near the fireplace again and my sister and mother, first timers, thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, food and view. We took a nice stroll around the grounds and out onto the pier."

  • "Ordered lobster for $23. It was like no lobster I had ever seen. Very small and tasteless."

  • "I come for the view and occasional tasty seafood. Food quality varies."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Unfortunately, the bar is set pretty low for restaurants on the water with a view. Hemingways does not exceed that bar in any way. Go for the view, have a few drinks, and the food won't seem so bad."

  • "Fabulous setting with gorgeous view and great outdoor dining. Food and wine were great. Waiter was horrible. He neglected to tell us the specials, which I later heard from another waiter at the next table. I would have ordered one of them. He completely forgot the table multiple times. I heard complaints about his service from other tables around me as well. But the food I ordered was still great and the setting was spectacular, so I would love to go there again, but would ask for a different waiter."

  • "We took our boat across the Bay for dinner at Hemingway's. We hadn't been there since they remodeled about three years ago. The new establishment is beautiful! They have plenty of slips and a great staff on the dock. There is a great deal of outdoor dining area and an outdoor bar both with great views of the Bay. The service was very friendly all around including the hostess, bartender, server and other staff. Our food was great! The sunset was beautiful!!"

  • "Went for lunch with my mother and grandmother, and sat outside at the bar. I like in Annapolis, and Hemingway's is one of the best views I've seen thus far at a reasonably priced place. I had the Open Faced Crab Melt and it was incredible. We went at a sort of odd time so nobody was there but I've been there at night before and this place is happening. Also an awesome restaurant for those that live on the water because you can ride your jetskis over and park and eat there. Will definitely be returning soon!!"
