The Top Restaurant in Town
I have been coming to Solomons for the past twenty years and the CD Cafe is the best restaurant that I've found in town. I have dinner here each Sunday I'm in town, about three times a year.

Always a fantastic meal.

Food here is extraordinary - the most moist, flavorful crab cake I've ever had in my life. Risotto with sage is a totally indulgent non-counterpoint but I don't care. Asparagus tender all the way through. What else do you want? Eat here.

Even with my challenging food allergies, my meal was beautifully presented, expertly created and was one of the best dishes I have had on the East coast . Extraordinary service was the only dessert I had room for!!!

Lovely lunch
Really good lunch place. Shrimp salad, chicken salad and crab cake were really good. Nice ambiance, right on the water.

Best in town
This is easily the best restaurant in the Solomons area, but it's very easy to drive right by because it's in a small office building. But park in the back, have a drink in the very friendly though small bar, and then sit down for...More ... read more

Loved this quaint little restaurant on Solomon's Island for lunch. The owners really care about the ambiance of the place and quality of food prepared! There were several creative selections for their daily specials, which made it really hard to choose! I loved the curry chicken salad on pita bread. It was served with a fresh mixed g ... read more

The CD Cafe never is probably my favorite restaurant in Calvert County.  I often opt for the special as their chef's come up with some creative dishes.  The last special I had was a beer battered flounder in a tomato sauce with clams and shrimp and polenta.  The sauce was very balanced, as are all the sauces I've ever had here.  Noth ... read more

What a gem of a restaurant! This is one of my top Five restaurants in the DMV area. I have never disappointed and I really can't really express how good it is. I urge anyone you wants Five Star dining in a casual atmosphere to go.!!!!

This place is pretty close to Lotus kitchen and just as good. The specials are always really good. The prices can be high but when you are eating crab cake sandwhich its worth it.

Great for lunch or anytime.
Very good. I'm very particular about my food so instead of writing a big review, the CD cafe has been there so long its had to be a success. So just do a sight unseen and you won't be disappointed.

Favorite restaurant on the island, this local spot usually open at 5pm and you better be on time because they do not take reservations and they fill up immediately.  When you can't get a seat, they have a nice bar called Next Door.  Their menu is amazing and the key lime pine is delicious.

CD Cafe remains an absolute favorite place to visit when I am in town.  The food is always cooked to perfection. I ordered the Honey Blackened Salmon which came with asparagus and wild rice.

Absolutely love this quaint local restaurant. Love all the vegetarian choices I get without having to amend a dish. And the desserts are to die for. Terrific option to wait for your table (because it is small) in the Next Door lounge and they’ll call over when your table is ready.
