One of the best local eateries. Coming from the DC area with its many restaurants, it has been a struggle to find a really good play to dine. The cocktails and entrees were delicious (homemade and fresh). Desserts were to die for. The Island Hideaway is destined to become a favorite.

I travel for a living. I go all over the country and eat at restaurants in many places. But this one...Island Hideaway...is in my TOP 5!! Great food, Solid Drinks, and excellent service. On the beautiful Solomons Island (straight out of the movies!) this tucked away secret is a jewel and needs to be on everybody's bucket list. Yep....it's awesome. It is a WIN-WIN!! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a great dining experience.

We love this restaurant! The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. We have never been disappointed. On our last visit, it was noisy, but that was only because the weather was terrible and all of the inside tables were full.

Wonderful meal, on the outside deck, overlooking boat slips in a part of the harbour. Delightful server (Lauren). A bit pricey, but well worth it.

I've moved to southern Maryland from NYC and let me tell you, the difference in available cuisine here is mind boggling. Some restaurants in this area, my fiance and I are convinced, serve frozen and re-heated food. HOWEVER, I am SO ecstatic to find that Island Hideaway offers authentic food that TASTES authentic. The difference is so evident. The house-made pasta is highly reminiscent of fresh hand-made pasta I'd had in Italy, which is something I'd been craving since I returned from my trip (3 years ago. Yeah.). The ambiance is also very similar to restaurants in Florida with a view of the water/boats. Also the dessert is unbelievably good. DELICIOUS, but at the same time not heavy which is hard to do. I would definitely recommend this place to others, and will be back!

Will absolutely return. Our server was SO pleasant and the grouper was to die for! The crab dip seems different than the last time with more salt and oil than I recall, but I would still reorder. Also, my "mocktail" was on point! Thank you for a great 30th birthday lunch for my husband.

I would definitely get there early to get a table outside. We reserved a table on the inside and sat right in the middle of all the traffic from the kitchen so people were walking by us constantly back and forth.
The seafood cannelloni was amazing - would definitely order that again. I thought the short rib lasagna would be good, but it was just okay - it lacked flavor. The key lime pie was amazing!! as were the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer. I would definitely go back again.

I come here often and have not once been disappointed! Their food is full of flavor and always cooked to perfection. Their staff is extremely friendly and welcoming! The owner walks around quite a bit making sure her patrons are enjoying their experience. The atmosphere is quaint and beautiful! I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!

I really enjoyed my dining experience here. The environment was cozy. The noise level was comfortable and not too loud, the food was good.
Laurie, an owner stopped by and talked to us and noticed a sauce that might enhance the flavor of my meal.

The service for being served and getting our check was efficient. Close attention to detailed.

I will come back.

Lets just say I will not plan on returning here. Location is all that they had going for them, service was inattentive and our food was Meh at best. Average burgers & the $22 Haddock fish & chips dinner was bleh and fries on all plates were way over salted. Only bright spot was kids food came out quick so they could eat, but parents was so slow kids were done before ours arrived and were then ready to leave.
Oh and by the way there was only 4 other tables being served during our entire time in the restaurant no excuse for poor service and underwhelming food.
If you plan on going plesse review and i hope its much better than our experience.

My family has been in Lusby area for 8 months now and by far, this has been the most pleasant eating and dining experience we have experienced. Everything was awesome from beginning to end. Cris was our server and his customer service skills were outstanding. We will definately be back this upcoming week. With more family, friends, or both.

Crab dip was wonderful with actual chunks of crab!!! However, the seafood canneloni was a little disappointing. Didn't taste much seafood. Never saw KirRoyale drink on a menu and enjoyed that. Service was exceptional!!! Noise was a little loud. Appreciated patrons 50+ years of age sat at the tables.
Would go back again. Family owned and I appreciate this. Next tine when it's warm, will sit outside and enjoy the water view and food/drinks.
