I took my mother for her 71st b-day. We were seated outside and the view of the marina and water way were perfect. Our waiter Alexander was very friendly with a constant smile. We took our time starting with drinks and an appetizer, crab dip with hot pretzels, so we could chat and take in the scenery. Alexander would check on us and refill our drinks without us asking, very attentive, always smiling. We ordered our main meal 45mins later, the seafood cannoli in Alfredo sauce, I opted for a side of asparagus instead of the salad, delicious! We could barely finish our meals and unfortunately had no room for dessert. This literal Island Hideaway is worth a try. I do recommend making a reservation a few days in advance because they have a steady flow of walk-in’s and the wait seemed between 30-45mins. We went on a Saturday at 3pm. I hope you choose to give them a try.

Food and Service were superb. Unfortunately we were sat next to the bar and it was very loud. Our food came very quickly and it was piping hot. Next time we will slow our order to ensure we have time to complete our courses. There WILL BE a next time!

Excellent food, great service. Try not to sit near the fountain drink station. VERY loud noises when ice was dispensed or when the machine was refilled.

The fish tacos were delicious but the wasabi sauce was a bit odd. My son devoured his pasta with red sauce and raves about it. Apparently the pasta is homemade daily. My blueberry lemonades cocktail was not great. The lemon blueberry cake was delicious. Our server was awesome. It was a great experience.

We ordered appetizers, and entrees. Our appetizer came out burnt, the flatbread was completely inedible. The Caesar side salads were not complete (ie. one was missing Parmesan), and mid way through our side salads, our waitress gave us our entrees while we were eating our salads. We had to shuffle the plates we were using to put our entrees on the table, then finish our salads while our entrees got cold. Overall the food had decent flavors, but lacked in timing, quality control, and hospitality.

We did not have a great experience. We went for brunch at 10am. The staff informed us they weren’t ready. We waited outside for an extra 10 minutes before they let customers into the restaurant. We asked for coffee and the server informed us that she had to make more coffee because the staff drank it all. The pastry that I got had ham and cheese, the flavor was terrible and the potatoes did not appear cooked all the way (I didn’t even eat them). The server informed us that the cook was researching the new pastry item last night. We were very disappointed.

I called to make reservations, was instructed to fill out form on website. Got outdoor seating which I asked for in the comment portion of the reservation app. Very busy at 5:30 on a Fri. Great water view...most of the area outside was shady by 6:30 as the sun was going down behind the front. Cream of crab tasted great, comparable to most other restaurants with really good CoC. Shrimp in my scampi was overcooked and the sauce was too acidic, but the toast was really good. Fish tacos were cooked well and yummy with a very light wasabi sauce drizzled on. Fish bites were Mahi that night, with a nice lighter breading vs the old thick beer battered stuff. Seafood Cannoli had a good taste and yes, there is a difference in homemade pasta vs. readymade. It was almost fluffy and soft in comparison so that was a nice change. Our server was very new but she did a great job and other staff were on hand to help out as well, so service was really good despite it being busy. The dessert selection sounded really good and it is said they are also homemade. Tried the almond butter cake, also has strawberries, and it was delicious and not too heavy and over sugary like store bought stuff. Overall we had a good time for a 1st visit so we will be back to try other dishes.

Great waterfront view and the food and drinks are fabulous! Hard to find both in Solomons but Island Hideway nails it every time. Wish they had a chocolate dessert when we had dinner but settled for a delicious toffee creme brulee and strawberry key lime pie!

The menu has not been updated in quite a while. I find myself no longer impressed by what is offered. The specials seemed average. Still great service and ambiance. Not a good value (1 app, 4 dinners, 3 drinks, 1 dessert, 22% tip = $175).
