We enjoyed our Saturday night dinner at Brooks Tavern immensely. Even though they don't take reservations for parties of less than 6, if you call an hour or so before you plan to be there you can get a sense of the best time to...More

We recently moved to Chestertown from Virginia and had heard and read a lot of good things about this place. We timed our visit right, apparently, because we did not have to wait to be seated and the hostess promptly fetched us drinks before our...More

Amazing restaurant. Love it how they work towards making a menu that is more organic/natural. I dislike restaurants that get the big old U.S. food service truck in to deliver the food. This restaurant does not, their food is mostly local and extremely fresh. The...More

Located in a re-purposed mill, this restaurant has a very nice menu, good wait staff and fun atmosphere. The food was delicious and we were pleased with our oysters and crab cakes.

A recent meal of oyster fritter and fluke was good. My son had duck curry and enjoyed it. The menu is definitely more upscale than other local restaurants, and well prepared. Desserts (ice cream cake and chocolate pudding cake) were quite good. Service was efficient....More

The only disappointment at Brooks Tavern was they were out of Lemon Ice Box Pie! The food choices were diverse and delicious. Would recommend Brooks Tavern and will be back.

Brooks Tavern closed permanently on September 20th, 2014. We will be opening a new venture in our old Kennedyville Inn Building late fall 2014 - the KB Market and Kitchen School. Meanwhile, look for Tony Wong's Cafe Sado to take over the space in the Radcliffe Mill!
