This place is a good place to eat. The service was really good and we went on Mother's Day, which is the busiest day to eat out. The only reason that I am not providing them with a 5 STAR rating is because the crab cake. It was advertised as lump meat, but it was mainly back fin. The taste of the crab cake was not very good. How ... read more

Food was very good. Service not so much. 5 stars for good food, about 2.5 stars for wait staff. Owner/manager needs to tend to their staff being more attentive to customers. We waited quite a while for our appetizers to come, with no attentiveness from the waitress who was chatting with other staff at the bar while we waited with ... read more

At the nick of time, I called in ahead for Mother's Day and fortunately a table for 4 was available for me and my family. The Customer Service was absolutely the best and the food was Scrumptious. No matter when I dine there, everything remains to be the same, if not better. To the staff, Thank you so much for making my Mother's Day ... read more

We had a great appetizer called the Napoleon here. It’s a must try! It was our first visit here and we enjoyed it.

I've been coming here ever since I was a kid. It's been through many different owners by now and many different makeovers. The one thing that has always stayed the same is how good the CD chicken salad is! I crave this salad so often and can't even try to replicate it myself! The Crème Brûlée there is to die for as well (didn't get i ... read more

We enjoyed our meal. We had the savory cheesecake *which was pretty good, Caesar salad with shrimp and the salmon as main dish, and finished off with oreo cheesecake. The least favorite item was the dessert, it was a bit chewy and not as tasty as I was hoping for.

I am mind blown. This restaurant has RUINED all food for us. Nothing I ever eat will ever compare to the utter perfection I experienced and I don't even live in the area. We had the coconut curry muscles. This should come with a straw to slurp up all the broth it was simply incredible. Next I had the special, the frittata which I nea ... read more

The food here is delicious! I ate here several years ago and was looking forward to experiencing CD Cafe again. Had the special baked cod topped with crab with a side of asparagus and homemade gnocchi. Just as good as ever!

Update 2022: Still an awesome restaurant. Best in St. Mary's in my opinion. Hidden gem for sure. If you don't have any dairy restrictions, try the savory cheesecake for an appetizer. It's 💯 worth it with a glass of merlot or whiskey bramble.

Dinner in Solomons
Great service, timely and delicious!!!! Steak was cooked perfectly. The food presentation was great! Scallop appetizer was wonderful. Great service and atmosphere.

Outstanding
Our friends who used to live near Solomons recommended CD Cafe as one of their old favorites. Small, intimate setting. Delicious lamb stew for me. My wife had black bean soup and house salad; both quite good. We'll be back on our next visit to Solomons!

The only place in Solomons that has something different than average food. Delicious but expensive.

Look for it!...I had to circle around to find this place, mixed use building. I almost didn't venture out to explore how to enter but glad I did. Front dining room offers casual yet elegant seating, comfortable but didn't allow much privacy. Hostess gave me a choice of where to sit, once she realized nothing was appealing to me she o ... read more

You have to try the cheesecake appetizer and the crabcake sandwich was worth every penny--even for off-season market price.

Small place, amazing food!
This little restaurant was phenomenal! The service was great and the food was outstanding. Everything was fresh, cooked to order, and prepared with care. I will definitely go back again. I can imagine it gets very busy for dinner on the weekends.

Everything was amazing. Our waitress was awesome and very attentive. We went for Valentine’s Day dinner and our table was ready for us when we got there. Words can’t do justice for how the food looked and tasted. Highly recommend and we will be returning.

I’ve driven by this restaurant a few times and they always seem to be busy. The menu looked appealing and I finally chose a rainy winter night to try them out.

Excellent always
eaten here twice during the pandemic in the off-season and in the low-season for tourists. i'm from a big city and have eaten in a lot of terrific restaurants. CD Cafe is outstanding, on par with the best big-city restaurants. Great food, service, drinks. It's a gem in Solomons.

We love CD Cafe and have been going there since it opened, BUT the recent changes to the menu are extremely disappointing because there are NO vegetarian dishes on the menu!

Best food/seafood on my trip
I recently traveled the east coast on a boat from SC up the ICW to the Chesapeake Bay as far north as Baltimore. Needless to say I had plenty of opportunity to visit local restaurants. Most of these places were just ok, and none were inexpensive. CD Cafe was the exception! I ordered the Shrimp Pappardelle with kalamata olive, andouil ... read more

OMG! Every time we eat dinner here it's amazing! Every last bite! You get full and keep eating just because you want to keep enjoying the wonderful flavor! It's so good I wanted to lick the plate, but remembered that we were in public!!! Ugh. All that goodness to be left for the sink drain.

Lovely little restaurant, we ate an early dinner there. Our server was delightful! the curried chicken salad pita was tasty and the broccoli slaw was wonderful. Husband enjoyed his burger and fries.

The locals will probably be upset with me for divulging this information, but The CD Cafe is one of the best hidden gems in Solomons for food! Their convenient hours, fast service, and tasty food is certainly much appreciated; especially when compared to other "tourist traps" in the area. The gyro was one of the best gyros I've had ... read more

Great first visit
First time here. Good location. Restaurant was not busy when got there but soon got busy. Get there early to get a table as not large seating area. Server Warren was really nice and friendly.

We've been coming here for years, anytime we're boating in Solomons. Amazingly consistent, delicious food from an eclectic menu, friendly service and a very relaxed, charming vibe. This most recent meal was another home run. The CD Cafe definitely stays on our list of all-time favorite restaurants.

CD Cafe is a gem. The chicken salad and black bean soup are great lunch staples. Phenomenal dinner menu and there’s always several dessert options that rotate. Lots of gluten free options is a plus. Every time I come here I feel like I’m getting a 5 star experience.
