Fantastic menu- with something for every taste. Crab soups have chunks of lump crab in them. Brioche rolls on burgers are heavenly. Great quality and killer views. We love this place.

Very quiet evenong, only 14 customers including our four members. Food was good, service was good... but prices were high for the content and had a somewhat limited menu. II had pasta and seafood in a rich cream sauce for $32. Serving size was less than two cups.. but was filling. Other entres included a soft shell crab sandwich, a crab cake sandwich, and one other sandwich. In my opinion, all were at the high end of average pricing.

There was a very large party that was very loud and it was impossible to talk to the person I was eating with at the table.

That made the experience stressful and not relaxing.

Good food, great service and a memorable view. Requested a table with a window view upon making reservations and they came through. Only possible negative was that is was a tad noisy (patrons).

I would recommend Hemingway’s for the food and the ambiance. However, the service left much to be desired. My husband and I were greeted by a waitress who clearly had no interest in providing a pleasurable dining experience. Her cold indifference did not go unnoticed. In addition, I overheard another waitress rudely chastise the receptionist by saying, “if you have time to stand around, you have time to clear tables”. This said much to me about the total lack of teamwork training and basic respect for co-workers. Management needs to step up their game and get a better handle on delivering an enjoyable dining experience for all customers, all the time.

The only good thing about this restaurant is the location. Food is overpriced and over-salted. The service was awful. A diner had spilled some water on the table, we had to track down the waitress and ask for assistance. She flopped down a stack of paper napkins and walked away. A 20% tip was already added for having 7 people at the table, which was not deserved. Would not recommend.

Our waitress was very nice but didn’t check back to see if we needed anything..? The rock fish was not good and the veggies looked as tho they were left over 3 days...very disappointing experience.

The view from Hemingway's at Sunset can not be beat. Spectacular view of the Bay and Bridge. I felt the food, although good was too expensive for what you got and how it was presented. (Broiled Seafood Combo). Vegetables were mushy and Seafood rather bland. Service was very pleasant and we really enjoy the atmosphere. Think a smaller menu option (sandwich, etc) would have been a better choice.

Views are amazing! It is sad to say that is the onlt thing I can compliment the restaurant on. Calamaris were really oily! Would not recomend that at all. Oysters were good. Special sandwich was good too. The service wad poor. When we walked in there were 2 people at the stand, none of them bother to acknowledge us! They were talking and a minute or 2 went by and then the young lady said hi. Our server fid not even offer bread or rolls, we saw other people around us being brought the rolls. She checked to make sure everything was good but when we finished our meal she immediately brought the check, did not even offer dessert.... not coming back! I do not recomend this Type of service to anyone.

Please treat yourself to a lovely experience and refresh here after you cross the Bay Bridge. The menu is easy to navigate and choose from. The drinks and food positively fulfill the senses. The view of the bay, sea birds, boats and bridge is spectacular, and you will leave having experienced a mini vacation. Notes: I enjoyed a mid-road trip break during the Friday of Labor Day. The bar tender honored my request for a non-alcohol Bloody Marry, the cooks prepared a gorgeous guacamole, and I continue to dream about the watermelon gaspacho with crab.

Hemingway's is a marina restaurant with fabulous views of the Chesapeake Bay and the Bay Bridge. We sat inside on a comfortable summer day. Most of the diners were seated on the ample outdoor covered area. Our meal was tasty. I sent my softshell crab sandwich back to the kitchen. I asked that it be prepared sauteed, but it was delivered heavily battered and fried, which is the normal menu offering.

Hemingway’s has the most amazing view on the Chesapeake Bay with generous outdoor seating opportunities and they are somehow able to manage the crowds that flock to them on beautiful weekends - like this last weekend - with charm and grace. For this reason we plan on coming here often, even during the off season - it’s a unique and excellent restaurant with an excellent staff and perhaps the single most stunning view within hundreds of miles of the location.

We were there to listen to the late afternoon / early evening live entertainment; we grabbed a bite while waiting. The food was great and the serving sizes way more than we could eat. Service was good but a bit slower than our intent (we are fast eaters and generally brook no delay ordering, eating, and splitting). The views are outstanding, and I would highly recommend hanging for the Tiki bar live entertainment, especially of Mark Desroches is performing.

We ate at Hemingway's Sunday evening. It was not crowded, and therefore we did not understand why it seemed to take so long to get our appetizers....then our dinners came before we finished the apps. Overall we were happy -- love the view! Can't wait until the weather is a bit nicer to sit outside.

This was our first visit. We sat inside by the window and watched the sun set over the Bay Bridge. The seafood meals were delicious and well prepared. The service was attentive and on queue to meet our needs.

Most patrons were eating outdoors on the deck and patio and obviously enjoying the evening. The setting sun made for a romantic backdrop.

Twice during our visit a helicopter landed on the lawn and delivered passengers to the restaurant or marina. Rather a surprise.

Meal prices were toward the high end, but the ambiance and service make it a worthwhile venue. We will probably return in the future.

The only thing that was irritating was a large table of folks kept coming to the window to take picture of the bridge where we were sitting. Food and service was great!

Food was good...service was terrible. It was hard to find our wait staff. It would be nice to have someone outside on the deck when guests are eating or drinking. Our wait staff didn’t check on us to see if things were fine. We had to go in to find her..

My husband had the Rockfish which was perfectly prepared, fresh, luscious & delicious. My crab cake was the best restaurant crab cake I’ve ever had, pretty much comparable to my late Aunt Helen’s exquisitely pentultimate crab cakes (my uncle would catch the crabs at 5 am, then bring home, cook & pick them, freshest lump crab with just enough binder to hold them together, complement & showcase the crab meat). It was heavenly to consume them. The mashed potatoes & grilled summer vegetable medley were the perfect accompaniment. Our only suggestion to improve our experience would’ve been to offer espresso or cappuccino or at to make coffee stronger to go better with a sweet dessert.

Went here for my wife's birthday dinner. We sat by the window upstairs to get a sunset view. View was excellent, she was really happy. Food was delicious. Crab meat everything is their best here (mushrooms caps w crab, crab soups, broiled crab cake).
