Top 10 restaurants in St. Michaels, United States

April 15, 2018 Jacquiline Darosa

Calling itself "The Heart & Soul of the Chesapeake Bay," the town of Saint Michaels, Maryland retains the look and feel of a 19th century seaport. Walk on red brick sidewalks past the Victorian homes and boutique shops of the historic district, or head down to the pier in search of famously fresh seafood. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum preserves the history of Saint Michaels, with restored examples of "bugeyes" and "skipjacks," unique boats developed by the fisherman of Chesapeake Bay.

208 Talbot

Causal Fine Dining at its best!!! Creations by Chef David Clark featuring a Full Ala Carte Menu and Tavern Menu. Gift Card Sales Available!!

Reviewed By Kenneth R - Burke, Virginia

My wife and I visited St. Michael's on a cool and quiet pre-Christmas day and happily found a lovely restaurant, 208 Talbot. On certain weekday evenings in St. Michael's off season, the house offers a significant portion of its extensive menu as very reasonable "prix fixe" option. This significantly expanded our choices. Not too many restaurants serve duck since it can be a difficult dish to prepare well; but I often order it when the option presents itself. This chef's duck was my personal "Greatest of All Time," beating the honor held for many years by "The Duck Club" of Bodega Bay. All courses of the dinner were superb and the gas fireplace in the back dining room took the winter chill from the stone walls. I trust that I will return.

Justine's Ice Cream Parlor

Celebrating 30 years of scooping ice cream in historic St. Michaels, Maryland. We serve ice cream, milk shakes, sundaes, floats, ice cream sodas, and homemade ice cream daily. Come visit our Famous Wall of Shakes!

Reviewed By Ruth G - Columbia, MD

We skipped lunch on a recent trip to St. Michaels and treated ourselves to ice cream here instead. It was excellent, and I was happy to find out that they don’t just offer cones. Our friends and my husband had ice cream sundaes with hot fudge. I had a delicious chocolate soda with vanilla ice cream. The friendly young man who made it gave me the can of soda so that I could keep adding more, and when I had diluted the liquid too much, he gave me another shot of chocolate.

Rise Up Coffee

Reviewed By MaizeBlueVA - Fairfax, Virginia

Rise Up Coffee is about great coffee with cookies and other packaged pastry's offered on the side. In short, you would go there only for the coffee, which costs about $2 for a big cup. It reminds me of the numerous small buildings like this in the Puget Sound area that serve coffee and maybe some packaged pastrys. The place is a charmer. For one thing, Rise Up is open late and can provide that last cup of coffee to top off a meal. Their coffee is definitely of a superior sort and is certainly better than what is served in most restaurants in the St. Michaels and Easton area. There is no inside seating at Rise Up and I don't think there's even a picnic table available for sitting. So you know this place caters to serious coffee lovers, especially if you've had a big meal and some adult drinks beforehand. The barista operating the place is very friendly.

Reviewed By Richard D - Hershey, Pennsylvania

The place is really cool and quaint. The food was delicious especially the soups. Service was upscale and professional. It is pricey. Once we were inside it was just another good fine dining restaurant. Nothing creative or special. Just very good food, good service, good ambience, just like you expect anywhere for the $'s. WE would make another choice the next time. Fine dining choice in a quaint fishing village? What was I thinking in the first place.

The Blue Crab

Under new ownership and with a fresh renovation. Serving Four Barrel Coffee, breakfast, lunch and freshly baked goods daily.

Reviewed By Neil C - Washington DC, District of Columbia

During a recent stay in St. Michael's, MD, we stopped by The Blue Crab one mornning on the recommendation of family members. They had rave reviews for the place and we were eager to share their experience.

As we entered what appeared to be a clean, modern recently renovated space, the dulcet tones of Frank Sinatra filled the air. We got in line and waited...then waited and waited a bit longer. 'I Did It My Way' continued to drone on over the sound system as we placed our order.

We settled in and waited, then waited a bit longer. Oh right, this was St. Michael's, not downtown DC. The operative word here was clearly 'chill'. So we did. Our friends arrived and we were lost in conversation when our order was called sometime later. No worries. Remember...'chill'.

Fox News was on the big screen beyond our table but, mercifully, it was on mute.

In the end, the food was worth the wait and the coffe was first rate. As we headed for the door, Frank crooned on...and on...and on.

This would have been a 5 Star review, but for the service, which, by the way, was always offered with a big smile, and a bit too much Sinatra.
