Amazing service level. Ask for Morgan.
One of the best (and least grease laden) fish and chips around.
We’ve never had a bad meal here - food and service are always great. First time we had been for lunch - great deal! And the view - doesn’t matter if the weather is good or bad, I could stare out those windows all day...
I am very disappointed in Hemingway’s.
Monday I made an online reservation for dinner for 2 at 7pm. Traveled quite a distance to find that the restaurant was CLOSED.
The phone message didn’t note this, nor did the online reservation system.
I called the next day to speak to someone, conveniently busy, and left my phone number..... no recall.
Good luck with the business!!!
The BBQ brisket was awesome
We requested an item that was not on the menu and was accommodated beautifully. The service was particularly good as they were not busy on a very cold Tuesday.
We go here often, mainly for the view and because it's convenient and quiet enough for my noise-sensitive elderly mom. But also the food is consistently good and the service is excellent.
Christmas celebration. Cream of crab soup was very good as were the house made desserts- Creme brûlée, turtle cheesecake and peanut butter pie. S
Very good overall experience. Our waitress was exceptional ! Keep up the good work.
Marginal food quality not prepared as requested. Way over done seafood. They took the dish off my bill but it should not have been that bad in the first place.
Easy parking, need signage in lot to tell people where to go, it’s confusing. Service was great, food was fine, it is loud in there. Too loud! They need noise absorbers, not expensive. Everything is wooden!
We have been coming to Hemingways for years and it continues to improve. The latest remodeling is smart, charming and welcoming with a nautical theme appropriate to the location on the Chesapeake Bay. The view is spectacular even at night as it overlooks the Chesapeake Bay Bridge span.
The food has been very good. The crab cakes are especially delicious with large chunks of crabmeat. Recently we were disappointed with a brunch item of eggs Benedict. The sauce was very skimpy.
The service was excellent. But that brings me to a disquieting situation on our last visit. As we were a party of over six people we were told the gratuity was included in the bill. We assumed it would be the customary 15-18% and, as we liked our server so much, we were going to add more. However, the added amount was 20%! This seemed a presumption which we did not appreciate and took the edge off our opinion.
This situation will not prevent us from returning, but will color our previously outstanding recommendation.
It was a very nice way to spend Thanksgiving, with such a beautiful sunset
One of the person's in my party had a seafood allergy. The manager (female/long dark hair - sorry don't remember the name) came over to our table to chat with her. She (my Niece) explained what she was and not allergic too. The Manager made sure she had a clear understanding of this. When the food came out, we found out that the cooking oil for any foods that she was allergic to was changed out prior to her meal being cooked. This shows outstanding customer service for the restaurant staff. The food was amazing. THANK YOU!!!
Requested and was seated outside. Ordered soup and appetizers. Service was slow and food was tepid in temperature upon arrival. We were not provided water nor appetizer plates. Placed food order and asked about the starch and vegetable . Was only given 1 option of each even after I inquired of other offerings. Order came and I was given a substitute without I first conferring with me. Hemingway’s was at one time, one of our favorites. Food was a bit salty and everything tasted the same.
Very good wait staff, our waiter was attentive and in tune to us, but the place was TOO noisy, even away from the bar. The food was good too, but not if you like to eat big meals; great for foodies. The décor is very nice and the view is fantastic and the location is great, BUT, put some acoustic tiles on the ceilings or walls or someplace to dampen the sound of 20 conversations going on at once. Another restaurant who cantered to the architect's every artistic wish vs. creating a pleasant place for the diners to enjoy some conversation along with the food and a nice decor. Do that and you have a winner.
Crab cake was poor. Oysters were not fresh and I was gold they were from NewJersey. Rockfish was good
We always stop here on our way back from the Eastern Shore. This place has always exceeded our expectations. The Crabcakes are awesome, the 50/50 crab soup is perfect, and they always have great beers on tap...although the Hemmingways Ale is always an excellent choice. Most important is the view of the bay...it is always beautiful! This time Belo did an excellent job recommending some menu items...the coconut shrimp appetizers were perfect.
Some of us went for crab cakes (me) which were underwhelming but Jenna was an outstanding waitress. The first two staff members we saw appeared to believe our party of six were actually ghosts; they didn't utter a word to us even when spoken to. Some of us sat at the bar for a few minutes but there reception was the same. We went to Hemingway's on our way to a vacation in Maryland and didn't have to think about going back on our return.
Did not get served for first 10minutes. but server was kind after that. Food was great
Ambiance was beautiful! A little pricey but overall a nice experience.
