Hemingway's Crab Cake Sandwich
Brioche roll, lettuce, tomato, and old bay tartar
Loved the Rockfish Reuben!!!
Met my sister and her husband here, with my wife, cause it’s halfway between our homes. It was a beautiful day on the Bay, the server - Drew? - was excellent and the views from the top deck were outstanding. Two bald eagles flying around 200 meters from our table added to the perfect experience.
We always love coming to Hemmingways. Although it is an hour ride for us, we always enjoy
outstanding dinner. No complaints. I will geturn back
View was great. Some food was great some over cooked. Service was lacking.
Great food and location.
We wanted to sit outside but they were not very helpful (they didn't offer to open the patio's umbrellas nor allow us to switch locations once sited).
The food was excellent and our waitress was great.
Incredible views and building. I wanted to love the food so much but the crab soup was ice cold and the chili naan crab dip was also cold and it was pita bread not naan. I didn’t feel comfortable trying the entrees because of the first courses so we just watched the view and went home. I wanted to love it. The ambience is incredible.
The food was delicious but a tad pricy. The server didn’t know the menu (which is limited but lush with seafood options) and wasn’t super attentive. We did feel safe with everyone spread out and wearing masks. Wonderful view and lots of outdoor seating and photo ops.
Great Food, views and drinks
Thank you so much for the kind review!
Everything was wonderful! The manager, Niki was exceptional!!
Ridiculous rules about groups dining together. You can inside but not outside??? Makes zero sense!
Chris was a great server!
First time out since the pandemic started, had a great meal, great time. Suggestion-figure out a way to keep the heat of the sun from impacting the room temp in the late afternoon, or raise the AC in the dining room. Waiter was great, can't remember his name but he was wearing a mask with a face on it.
Amazing service and food was incredible. Beautiful and peaceful location on the waterfront.
Beautiful resturant, good staff, but the food was bad. The seared tuna was so water logged and the creme brulee was more pudding then a thick creamy texture.
Jason was great! Very attentive to our needs. The food was fabulous -- as always!
If you want the true Kent Island experience, come to Hemingways!
The food and service were excellent. Menu provided many great choices to choose from.
I was not impressed with the food. The soup was watery with very little crab and the rockfish was dry with very little sauce. I will not be returning to this restaurant in the future.
Romantic experience, sunset dinner with fabulous views of the Chesapeake Bay. Service was attentive and top notch, food was flavorful and delicious!
We went for lunch on a Saturday and it was very quiet. We got a table next to the window with a beautiful view. Service was quick and our food was delicious!
We will go again . Very good in all seasons! The atmosphere was great, food delicios and the views fantastic, we were fortunate to see a glorious sunset.
Not entire comfortable for disabled people. Outside elevator initially go stuck going to dining floor. Bathroom was fine for accessibility
I couldn’t eat the chicken on the Caesar salad-it was nothing but grizzle and the dressing didn’t seem like a Caesar dressing. The meatloaf my daughter in law had apparently wasn’t tasty either. We won’t be back until summer...
Dec 14th Sat evening, around 6pm. No sunset views this late, but views of the lights of the bridges. A lot of reflection keeps you from just looking out into the night, but you can see serenity outdoors. A light crowd for what was a rainy, cool day. Low key but comfortable. We will love to be back before sunset to see what is an incredible view of the Chesapeake Bay looking west.
Our service was very attentive, food selections right up my alley because of so many offerings. Our selected foods were as described, tasted very good and looked great.
We will definitely visit again soon to explore other meal selections. No desserts attempted since we were definitely satiated after our selections.
We went for the Thanksgiving meal. Seafood was very good but the scallops and crab cakes could be just as good elsewhere. Turkey was dry, stringbeans were overdone and mushy. Service was great, food came out faster than we could eat. Ambience was great. I'm making the food sound worse than it was. Good place to impress a date.
Thanksgiving, 1/2 full, limited menu and service was still so-so. They ran out of prime rib, right as I was placing my order for it, of course, at 5pm. Cross off one offerring for the night. Then our entrees were delayed up tp one hour waiting for a new batch of mashed potatoes. Really? You're going to stop all the works over measly mashed potatoes. They forgot the cranberry sauce for my turkey entree, after they decided to deliver it without my mashed potatoes. Ever hear of Keystone cops? This was it. By the time they got their act together, we decided just to take it to go. No sense continuing with the misery of bad service and management. They did take $20 off the tab for the wine without me asking, so they were aware of their own problem. Unfortunately, this is just par for the course for the restaurant.
We've always wanted to dine at the restaurant with the great views of the Bay. I'm sorry to say we were very disappointed by their Thanksgiving dinner. The food was not worth the almost $40 per person charge. The appetizers, salad, and dessert were delicious but the main courses were very unsatisfactory. The vegetables were mushy and overcooked. The rockfish was mushy and lacked flavor, the fish on the grilled platter looked and tasted boiled vs broiled. If you put the crab and on top of the fish, it was edible. There were no rolls. Service was also very slow. It took forever to get refills on our water. I had always heard the food was delicious so we were very surprised at Thanksgiving. I think if the restaurant continues to open on this holiday, they should stick to their traditional menu.
First time there for Thanksgiving Dinner and it was good food, service and views. I was very pleased as a vegetarian they made an entree for me when they did not have one on their menu and it was good- my companions rock fish and turkey and enjoyed it -recommended
Fantastic menu- with something for every taste. Crab soups have chunks of lump crab in them. Brioche rolls on burgers are heavenly. Great quality and killer views. We love this place.
Great food perfect setting breathtaking view! Perfect place to be able to talk and get to know someone💙
Very quiet evenong, only 14 customers including our four members. Food was good, service was good... but prices were high for the content and had a somewhat limited menu. II had pasta and seafood in a rich cream sauce for $32. Serving size was less than two cups.. but was filling. Other entres included a soft shell crab sandwich, a crab cake sandwich, and one other sandwich. In my opinion, all were at the high end of average pricing.
There was a very large party that was very loud and it was impossible to talk to the person I was eating with at the table.
That made the experience stressful and not relaxing.
Good food, great service and a memorable view. Requested a table with a window view upon making reservations and they came through. Only possible negative was that is was a tad noisy (patrons).
I would recommend Hemingway’s for the food and the ambiance. However, the service left much to be desired. My husband and I were greeted by a waitress who clearly had no interest in providing a pleasurable dining experience. Her cold indifference did not go unnoticed. In addition, I overheard another waitress rudely chastise the receptionist by saying, “if you have time to stand around, you have time to clear tables”. This said much to me about the total lack of teamwork training and basic respect for co-workers. Management needs to step up their game and get a better handle on delivering an enjoyable dining experience for all customers, all the time.
Sunset on the deck, with great friends it was perfect !
Delicious food. Beautiful atmosphere. Friendly staff.
Beautiful sunset. Service fair. Food good
The only good thing about this restaurant is the location. Food is overpriced and over-salted. The service was awful. A diner had spilled some water on the table, we had to track down the waitress and ask for assistance. She flopped down a stack of paper napkins and walked away. A 20% tip was already added for having 7 people at the table, which was not deserved. Would not recommend.
Server was helpful with suggestions and description of the dishes. Food is consistently good and view is unbeatable!
