    Walked out after waiting 15 minutes to be acknowledged despite only 4 tables having guests. Our neighboring table guests who were there prior to us said they had also not been acknowledged besides having water put on their table. Ambiance is cold with uncomfortable chairs, the same kind used in my high school classes. The minimalist decor doesn’t create a warm, inviting setting where you come to relax, unwind, and have a memorable meal. We were seated at a two top in front of a window with the sun beating in despite numerous empty 4 tops. If you want bread with your meal, there is a $9.00 charge. As a former restaurant owner, I was very disappointed in the 15 minutes I was there so walked out. Therefore I can’t comment on the food.

    The salmon, encrusted with pastrami spices and herbs, was fantastic! My companion and I are every bite of our generous portions as well as the sides (rice, green beans, and asparagus). We split a warm brownie sundae--rich and moist, the best I've ever had. Service was prompt and cheerfully attentive. Prices are very reasonable. Minutes: The noise made it hard to have a conversation, and the hard plastic chairs remind me of a cafeteria. I would also appreciate sparkling water, which is my go-to since I didn't drink alcohol.

    Staff and food here are the best on the Eastern Shore! Never been disappointed! Tonight the dill in the potato leek soup was an unexpected punch of flavor. The crab cakes were fresh lump crab with no discernible fillers. And the bourbon old fashioned was perfectly mixed to kick the weekend off.

    It’s nice but the menu is limited, the oysters were shucked ahead of time and dry, salmon was a bit overcooked, wine selection is limited, there was no field greens salad- only Caesar and wedge (which to me seems very 1990’s). The staff were lovely and the atmosphere is nice but I think the food lags behind other local restaurants.

    Great ambience and atmosphere. All the dishes are presented beautifully with adequate portions. The farm to table ingredients are locally sourced and are prepared perfectly. The service team is outstanding. Melissa, our server for dinner, was professional and accommodating. Lisa and Alex were also supportive and courteous in the dining area. We loved the creamy chicken rice soup, seared tuna, flat iron steak cooked as requested, and the swordfish was delectable. Kudos to the Chef and staff!

    I stumbled across T at the General store while staying at the Hyatt in Cambridge. My husband and I booked for Valentine’s Day, intrigued by the farm to table experience and the intimate atmosphere. We were not disappointed:) The atmosphere was intimate, yet cheery. Seating is limited but everyone seemed comfortable. The menu was simple with maybe 7 or so entrees, but each paired well with appropriate sides and abundant servings. Every bite was delicious. The wait staff was friendly and efficient, (we especially enjoyed one of the staffs’ family members telling stories at the bar about the history of the old general store :) ). Dessert was delicious and just enough. I was disappointed I didn’t have room to try one of their specialty tea cocktails, but plan to go back one day soon. Pricing was mid range but not at all out of proportion to the quality of the food. If you’re close to the T, make sure you make a stop ;)

    We had a wonderful dining experience at T at the General Store. The service was excellent and the ambiance was welcoming. Our server, Melissa and the server assistant, Alex , were both courteous and professional. The raw local oyster appetizer was fresh and the ham and bean soup delicious. The seafood special, spicy mahi mahi over fried rice was cooked perfectly. The short ribs are always served with great presentation and are fall apart tender. Kudos to the chef and his team. We appreciate the entire staff!

    We have eaten here several times and always had a good experience with food and service. Unfortunately, there were major issues with both this time. I ordered the special pasta which was supposed to come with shrimp. The plate arrived without the shrimp. This is an error by the kitchen and the server. Was not a busy night so I don’t know why this occurred. I flagged down the server who apologized. The shrimp arrived five plus minutes later again with an apology. No compensation was offered, scoop of ice cream etc. My wife had the chicken pot pie. It was so liquid that she was offered a spoon, rather than a fork to eat it. It was mostly sauce and a puff pastry with very little chicken. The chicken was small bits hardly noticeable. As we have had good meals in the past, I hope this was a one night aberration and not a trend.

    All of our food was delicious. The bacon and scallion omelette, with a side of grits made my husband so very happy. He said best grits he has ever eaten. I had the delicious French Toast and brought half home. We basically shared a side of bacon (5 fabulous crispy slices) and a side of roasted fingerling potatoes. We arrived a bit early for our reservation but were seated immediately. The service was very friendly and food came out promptly, fresh and hot. This is a wonderful gem for brunch. We’ve been going for years.

    We had a perfect experience! Our server, Susan, who was also sharing bar duties with another server, was exceptional, knowing just when to check in and when to leave us to enjoy our dinner. The chicken barley soup was outstanding, with just a hint of black pepper heat. The baked oysters were flavorful and our entrees (chicken pot pie for him and pork chop for me) were some of the best we ever had. Bread pudding for dessert topped off an excellent experience. Prices, by the way, were very reasonable. We will be back. Make a reservation!
