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).

This one of my favorite restaurants on Solomons Island. The food is always excellent, well presented and hot. Unfortunately, they have not changed their menu in a while and I tend to always get the same one or two entrees. Although this time I tried the Coconut Lemon Chicken and it was delicious. Since COVID they have not offered any entree specials.
The desserts are to die for, fresh-made in-house. Three of us shared the chocolate cake and it did not disappoint.

Sunday brunch. Had a reservation but ended up sitting at the bar by choice. Food was great and service was good. The inside tables and bar cannot capture the amazing waterfront setting that is available here. I always feel cheated when sitting inside on a nice day. Some mirrors at the bar to lighten up the area and reflect the waterfront view would be nice.

The Irish menu was great....delicious Irish stout onion soup and excellent authentic Bangers and Concannon. The shepherd pie was sold out early, but we picked up some the next day and it was fantastic with stout based gravy and sliced potatoes instead of mashed. The Hideaway never disappoints.
