A word from Stoney's Kingfishers
The elegant dining room of Kingfishers merges artwork with nature. A mural spans the space and is accented by lifelike hand-crafted wooden carvings of Maryland estuary life. All of this overlooks the scenic waterfront of a Patuxent River inlet. Kingfishers is the perfect place to fulfill your business or social event. It is refined enough to have an important meeting but also casual enough to stop in for a beer and some fare after work. Also available is an outside deck, several transient slips, and an upstairs dining area and bar.Continued

  • "I took a friend who is orginally from the U.K. and he talked for days about how happy he was to find "proper" fish and chips in the U.S."

  • "Enjoyed our lunch, sitting outside. The food was very tasty and the service was very good. Loved the view."

  • "Chesapeake Caprise Salad was great, crab was sweet and worth the drive from Philly. Shrimp and grits were great- grits were so creamy- yum! The Jambalaya was tasty. Rockfish bites were disappointing, rather fishy. A shame because I had been dreaming of fresh rockfish all week. Friendly service. Overall a very nice meal!"

  • "Stoney's Kingfishers is a must eating spot on Solomons Island. Outdoor and indoor dining lends itself to beautiful water views. The seafood is tasty - especially the scrumptious crab cakes. The wait staff is warm and friendly. On weekends and holidays, they even have good live music. I highly recommend Stoney's Kingfisher for a great dining experience."

  • "I took my wife to Stoney's Kingfisher's for her birthday and we were reasonably pleased. The seafood platter was a good choice and value for the money but the grease it was cooked in was old so that dampened what should have been spectacular. The service was OK but slow. The reception was fine. I would return but I would be cautious on menu choices."

  • "Had our 17th Anniversary dinner on the back deck overlooking the water. Food was good, service was ok after we ran down a waitress. Parking is an issue. Had 6:00 reservation, dropped my wife off and waited about 10 minutes for someone to leave a parking space before I could enter restaurant."

  • "I had not been with all my kids together at one time in a long time. Made the trip from NoVa to Calvert cliffs and then dinner at Stoney's king fisher. It was well worth the trip. Good beer selection and awesome crab balls! Kids ranging from 21-2 had a great time and ate everything in sight. Will absolutely be back again!"

  • "This is a lovely, casual restaurant with great views. If you want to throw on a pair of jeans and grab a meal - this is a great place to do that. If you are looking for a white tablecloth experience...not so much. However, it was just what we wanted for the day...sadly there is also at least one person who thinks that every one needs to hear his/her conversation. We were unfortunate enough to be seated near a table full. Ugh. Our choice was to give up the view or stand the noise. We stood the noise until dessert - at which point we went to the bar. Great little bar, quiet.... a nice cap to the evening."

  • "I was on the area for one night on business and found this restaurant by searching the map. The location and pics on their website looked good so we tried it. It was perfect. Crab cakes were the best I have had and we got to relax outside on a beautiful night next to the water. The waiter was very nice. I will return next time I am in the area."

  • "I really liked the setting... right on the water, with huge windows that allow a great view. The outside seating is nice, too. Most of the tables have umbrellas. The service was great. The food was mediocre. I ordered fish tacos, which had too much rice and were too dry. That recipe needs to be revamped, as fish tacos should be prepared differently. The hush puppies and french fries were okay... but a tad overcooked. My mom ordered crab cakes, and she said they were just okay. I might go back again one day and order something else, because I really did liked the open, airy atmosphere and the waitress was really nice."

  • "The location is the main attraction. Stoney's used to be the place in So MD for good food and a good view. Now the food is about the same as the other places. The waiter seemed very rushed. The women that work there need to wear something that is more professional. I am not sure it is worth the drive anymore. "

  • "We had lunch at Stoney's Kingfisher on Memorial day. We sat outside on the deck and watched the boats and activity in the harbor. Service was prompt and special requests were not a problem. My crab cake sandwich and salad were quite good. Many good craft beers were on the menu. "

  • "The last time our entire family had lunch there and the food tasted a lot better than this time! The crab cakes were awesome and melted in your mouth then.. I had ordered the same meal as when I was with my husband because the "Washington Post" had given them great reviews on their crab cakes. This time the crab cakes were a lot more drier and the cold slaw tasted old like it had been some leftovers from the previous night before. The fries were overcooked. There were not many people waiting to be serve but it took awhile for the food to served. The hostess and waiter were outstanding in their greetings and customer service. They can't do nothing about the cooks!"

  • "This was my first time visiting this restaurant and the area. I brought my date here for her birthday and had such a wonderful experience. The wait staff was on point and didn't skip a beat. Extremely attentive and well versed in the menu. We sat outside on the dock and it was very quiet so we could carry on a conversation. The food arrived and it was absolutely amazing. The bacon wrapped scallops were cooked perfectly and the plating was perfect. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone! The only downside was it was a little difficult to find parking."

  • "Pretty average tasting food. Arrived early and we were told we would have to wait until our scheduled reservation; however we were actually seated 25 minutes after our reservation time. It then took 20 minutes and two requests for our waiter to arrive. It also took some time for the meal to arrive although no one ordered any "special". We certainly did enjoy the view and our time together, but don't believe we would return."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The food was okay - the food presentation sucked, the waitress was okay and she should have had help or more focus for a party of 13. The dishes were dirty and it kind of messed the mood up for my mom's birthday. Not a restaurant I would recommend."

  • "We invited friends to join us for the advertised "Mully's Beer Dinner" featuring food and drink from local producers at Stoney's Kingfishers on April 24th. When the four of us arrived at Stoney's Kingfishers at the appointed day and time for the "Mully's Beer Dinner" we were told that the event was sold out and that we were not on the list. After discussion with three different employees of the restaurant, and after showing them our confirmation email from Open Table for the "Mully's Beer Dinner" we were told that our reservation on Open Table didn't matter because the "Mully's Beer Dinner" was a special event and they wouldn't honor reservations made through Open Table. One person did apologize, but we were turned away anyway. Bad."

  • "Never having been to Solomons, I took a gamble and booked a table at Kingfishers based on the name alone (my wife and I are birders). It was such a pleasant experience the first time, that we went a second time. We tried many different kinds of food and sampled many beers. It was all fantastic. But what really made the experience great was our waiter, Tom. He was genuinely friendly and even when the restaurant was quite busy, he made time to visit with us. He saw that we were birders and told us about a great spot to see some Bald Eagles and even showed us some pictures of the area. Great food, great beer selection, excellent scenery, but if you go for nothing else, go for the great people who work there."

  • "We had the opportunity to meet with some friends that we had not seen for twenty years. We wanted a place that served seafood as one friend lives in the mid-west and misses Southern Maryland seafood. We also wanted a quiet space where we could talk and catch up on each others lives. Stoney's was perfect. The food was great, they gave us a cozy table in front of the fireplace, and we could visit to our heart's content."

  • "There's a better restaurant right down the street. Crab cakes were very bland, servers station is right next to the tables so you can hear everything they feel like talking about. Not really an intimate environment, meant for larger groups of people."

  • "We love Stoney's! The menu is varied but my husband has been dreaming about the crabcakes at Stoney's since we left the country 5 years ago! He was not dissappointed! Don't let the size of the 5 OZ. crabcake on the plate fool you! Just about 100% crab! The crabcakes were a hit with everyone and the other dishes we had were delicious and every plate was full! The dining room was casual and airy making for a relaxing meal with friends. We will come back as often as we can and definitely continue to recommend Stoney's to our friends!"
