Fish tacos were great and the crab cake sandwich was mouthwatering.  Defines worth a visit when you're at Solomon's.

Don't let the bland atmosphere of the restaurant fool you, the food is exquisite. My daughter and I ordered the special brisket dish which was plentiful and flavorful. Maybe one of the best things I've eaten this year. Go there!

Very good food and nice people. The fish has always been delicious. The tables are socially distant and carry out is available too.

Really great food. It's super small though, plan to either wait or drink a little at the lounge beforehand. Everything on the menu is really good and really gourmet.

CD Cafe's salad that came with the crab burger was so fresh and delectable.

We have never had a bad meal here. The food is ALWAYS excellent. I got engaged in the dining room this past January so this restaurant means a lot to me. $2 mystery beer Fridays are the best deal ever!

Best shrimp tacos I have had. Great attention to detail and prep. Black bean soup was yummy too!

This is one of my favorite places in the area. I love the food I love the atmosphere I love the drinks. The specials are always unique and delicious. you must save room for dessert because they are all homemade and amazing.

I had the chicken artichoke Mediterranean pasta and omg was it good! Enough for two or leftovers the next day for sure. Came back weeks later and had the salmon Caesar salad. It was meh especially for $20! Not even homemade croutons. Idk, maybe they had an off day, but you can't love everything from one place. Would definitely go the ... read more

Excellent Fish!
The CD Cafe is a small Restaurant and does not look too inviting - but the food was amazing: sword fish and tuna, both perfectly cooked, with tasty vegetables and just delicious. The desert was a excellent creme brûlée.

I may visit here again just to try this place again. Our food came out pretty late but I forgot right away after I tasted the food. It seems many customers came in right before us. Kids meal was great too! I regret that we did not think about the desert.
Miran Park via - Sep 29, 2020
All 6 of us took our first bite about the same time, and audible mmms came from all at once! I've got a new favorite place in Solomon's, amazing food and great service. The bread was so good that we put in an order for seconds, it was right out of the oven, with perfect crust, taste and warmth. We can't wait to come back!
Glen Fromm via - Sep 27, 2020
Everything here is amazing. Friendly service, limited seating right now but worth the wait. If you're on the fence, get the savory cheesecake appetizer. It sounds a bit strange but you'll love it! Creme brulee or key lime pie are a must for dessert.
Danielle B via - Sep 23, 2020
The place is the absolute BEST restaurant on Solomons Island!!!
Olen Jones via - Sep 23, 2020

Pan roasted salmon, over risotto, with artichoke hearts, pine nuts and spinach - what a wonderful combo!

CD Cafe owner, Warren, and Chef Aaron did an amazing job catering my wedding in August 2020.

You will not go wrong! The food is incredible, especially the crab cakes. I had walked in and they were in the process of shutting down early since it was a slow night.

There's always a waitlist to eat here, but once you sit down and eat here you'll understand why. Their Brunch menu has a wide variety to choose from that you'll struggle to decide on your meal. But always leave for dessert because they're to die for!

OMG....we were so glad to hear that the Cafe would be open for carry-out. My husband insisted on eating there for his 50th birthday. We ordered the crab cake and pork chop entrees. They both were super fantastic. Thanks for making my husband's birthday extra special. Take care and be well.

Food was excellent as usual. Five of us had full meals and desserts. Service was sparse and could have been better. None of our drinks were refilled until long after we had eaten while other tables seemed to be well attended. Unfortunate because previous visits the service was as good as the food and I tip very well.
