Restaurant Name City
Poogan's Porch Charleston, SC
Agree with Sharon D's review. This is a must for lunch or dinner. It is somewhat noisey primarily because it is old with very high ceilings - but that all adds to its charm. Creole and jambamaya are excellent. Try the peanut butter pie!
Blossom Cafe Charleston, SC
Soemwhat pricey for dinner but the dishes are creative and the service was excellent. The Maple Leaf Duck was a good choice ($26). Decent wine list.
Great Oak Landing Chestertown, MD
Great location. Unfortunately, the food is inconsistent. It's gone through several management changes. We dined here recetly and felt that it was pretty average - at best. Like many of the restaurants on the water, it depends on the boaters and has difficulty retaining chefs.
Dutch Family Restaurant Kennedyville, MD
This place was torn down about 2 years ago (thank you Lord). Not replaced.
The Yacht Club Restaurant Chesapeake City, MD
We believe that this is the best restaurant in the area - consistently good. Most recently (9/12/08) four dined here. The Duck Medallions were excellent. The salmon and rock fish outstanding.
Dockside Yacht Club/Restaurant Chesapeake City, MD
This place burned down some years ago and was replaced by the Chesapeake Inn.
Twinny's Place Galena, MD
Have to admit that the She-Crab Soup is excellent. Otherwise, just average. But friendly.
Village Bakery & Cafe Galena, MD
This place reloctaed, and expanded, to Chestertown, MD. There, they now serve wine and beer. Haven't been there yet.
Black Eyed Susan Chestertown, MD
Sorry, folks. Another place has hit the dust. It was totally torn down!
Italian Affair Glassboro, NJ
On 6/27 an excellent meal. Not 5 stars but still excellent! Service was outstanding (5 star). Cheese Tortellini was very good ($15.95) and Chicken Francese (suateed in white wine & lemon juice) served with Cavatelli pasta was termed "excellent". Warmed rolls were replenished. The surprise was the wine. The white was excellent and about $5/glass. The red was very good ($5/glass.) We were surprised because this place is located outside of a strip mall.
Robino's Restaurant Wilmington, DE
Four dined here 6/28. REASONABLE!! And good. All had Chicken Caccatore (spelling?)+ 3 glasses white wine (luna di Luna)+ 1 glass chianti+1/2 carrafe Chianti+2 btles.+Yuengling Beer= 1 dessert. Bread was plentiful but a little soft in the crust. Service was excellent. Place was spotless (didn't usde the rest rooms). We got there at 6pm and were seated immediately. By 7pm, there was an hour wait.
Le Bistro Mediteranean Hilton Head Island, SC
The Early Bird menu is very extensive and - in Feb. '08 - was priced at $14.99. EB is served from 5 to 5:45pm. Becauee of this, Le Bistro gets crowded and pretty much cleared out about 6:30. We had 6pm reservations so the regular menu applied. The Veal Shanks wer superior and was the rack of lamb. Wine list is extensive and expensive. A split of wine was in the $20+ area (that's about 3 glasses/split). Desserts were pronounced as "stupendous". The service was excellent though we thought our waiter was a wee bit snooty (until we ordered wine!). Six were in our party and the tab average $135.00 w/o taxes and tip. Take your wallet, kids.
Aunt Chiladas Easy Street Cafe Hilton Head Island, SC
A mix of Mexican, American, Italian - strange, but true. Four dined here (dinner) in Feb. '08. Two liked Mexican food and their review was "very good". Two had rack of lamb (very good). Service was excellent. We'd give the service 5 stars and the food 3 stars with an overall 3 stars.
Harold's Diner Hilton Head Island, SC
I never thought I'd rate a diner 4 stars - Actually should be 5! This is an experience! Best hamburger you'll ever have. Huge Hot Dog! Absolutely the BEST Reuben ever and it's made with turkey. Have a real milk shake.Piles of french fries, onion rings. Don't forget to wroite your bame on the bottom of your order or suffer humiliation. Serves breakfast to 11 and lunch 11-3. Closed Sunday. Cash only. Don't bother phoning, Harold rarely answers.
Dye's Gullah Fixins' Hilton Head Island, SC
A real find this year. As close to authentic Gullah cooking as we've come by. Collards, okra, yams; her own blackberry wine (a dessert quaff). Fried Chicken is excellent. Low Country Boil is wondersul. Don't miss this restaurant.
Java Joe's Hilton Head Island, SC
Don't waste your time. Nice and convenient location but the best comment we can make about the coffee is that it's warm. The bagels, Danish, etc. are mediocre and not cheap (because they're mediocre!). We met friends here on a Feb. '08 morning and all four of us left before our coffee was done and went to the Hilton head Diner.
Harbourtown Bakery & Cafe Hilton Head Island, SC
Disappointing to say the least. Danish were stale; coffee bitter. Being in Sea Pines, they aren't cheap. We breakfasted here twice in Feb. '08 because we had friends staing across from the shopping area. Wouldn't go back.
The Sea Shack Hilton Head Island, SC
An experience and VERY popular. Dined here twice in Feb. '08. The New England Clam Chowder is excellent and the fish n' chips is very good. I can only say that this is an inexpensive spot to go and don't expect too much. Hilton head "ain't cheap" and many who go here don't expect much.
Signe's Heaven Bound Bakery Hilton Head Island, SC
Had to return in Feb. 2008. We weren't disappointed. Until we had the Reuben at Harold's Diner, this was deemed to be the best ever. Try the Chicken Pot Pie. The blueberry French Toast is wonderful. I agree that their ordering system talkes a visit or two to get used to but it's worth the study.
Hofbrauhaus Restaurant Hilton Head Island, SC
Sorry, folks. This has been replaced by A Truffles, a spi-off from the same restaurany in Sea Pines. We didn't try it this trip.
