We are part-time locals to this area of the Eastern Shore, living in DC the rest of the time. We love this restaurant and consider it 5 stars compared to some of our favorite D.C. restaurants (albeit different cuisines). There isn't anything about this restaurant, including the easy to get to location that we don't appreciate!

Celebrated a special birthday...the chef was so accommodating, making a small birthday cake for our mini party of two. Bringing it out, the whole restaurant joined in singing Happy Birthday! What a friendly place and welcoming crowd! Add to that fantastic, innovative food, awesome portions and creative cocktails and this is a place that should be packed every single night!

I love the location of this restaurant because the brief drive from St. MIchaels is lovely. My husband and I had a great meal. Everything was delicious. I had the tuna appetizer and the salmon entrée. My husband had the chili as an appetizer and the pasta special for his entrée. We will definitely be returning (a lot).

I drove past it twice. The outside looks like a dilapidated country store but you will be pleasantly surprised when you walk in. The place is eclectic, the staff amazing and the food.....
I had a wonderful cabernet sauvignon to start with fresh shucked oysters.....yummy
I then had the Thai grilled shrimp. Delicious.... For dinner I had the grilled salmon - done to perfection.
I finished off with a brownie a la mode which was a perfect size to finish the meal. I will definitely be back. You will not be disappointed

As always, we had an excellent time. We brought friends who had never been there and they loved it as well. The only disappointment was that the only cab on the wine list was not available and the Pinot we picked just wasn't that nice. Hopefully the next time we go, they will have a couple more Cabs on the wine list.

Food is excellent but service is often spotty at T, especially if the bar is full, as the servers have to double as bartenders. The place really needs a dedicated bartender on weekend nights.

The food is amazing. The Ahi Tuna apetizer is to die for. Beth did an excellent job with regards to service in spite of it being her first day. The duck that we had orgered was cooked to perfection but had gristle all around which made it hard to chew. They changed it out and got us something else. Excellent service!!

We discovered this restaurant 3 years ago during an Anniversary trip to the Eastern Shore. To celebrate our 15th Anniversary, we decided to return. The food was just as delicious as before and the ambiance was lovely. It is nice to not have been to a restaurant in 3 years and to come back and the quality still remained!

This was the second time we ate here, and loved it both times. The oyster stew was perfect (just a little bit of heat) and my pork chop was perfectly cooked. My husband had a steak with an amazing chimichurri (not sure I spelled that right!) sauce which he let me taste (he didn't share his steak!) The warm apple cake with caramel sauce, whipped cream to die for and ice cream finished us off. We waddled home having enjoyed every minute of our visit. We plan to go back and take some local friends who have not made it there yet.

We we're looking for a new place to try and came upon The General Store. Since the chef is hands on, the menu has less items, but are made to order and wonderful. We had the special of the day which was Chicken Pot Pie and the Steak with chimichurri. Both were amazing and displayed beautifully. Tea is infused into the handcrafted cocktails which adds a lovely touch. For dessert we had the creme brulee and the home made lemon curd with fruit. Again, the taste was off the charts. This restaurant will be our new go to when we are near Easton. Worth the trip to visit, you won't be disappointed!
