Love the outside seating, the food was amazing! The crabcake was to die for. My wife had chicken salad, i tasted it and it was really tasty! What a great stop for lunch! The only one thing negative my wife pointed out was that the poinsettias in the front, should be changed to spring flowers this time of year. But... More

We stopped here to get away from I95 on our trip south. I wanted a delicious lunch overlooking something pretty. The historic district of the town of St. Mary's fit the bill. This restaurant is across the street from the St. Mary's River. We had a table on the porch which is one flight up a ramp. I had a... More

Had the pita bread w tziki, outstanding, not quite enough bread to finish the hummus and tziki. My gyrowas good, great fries, ok salad. Her salmon on salad, ok. Kalamata olives instead of black olives, kinda ruined it. Pies, raspberry cheesecake - OMG !!!!!!!! Da bomb! !! Key lime pie, good.

Stopped in here on trip back from Florida. After visiting the national sea shore park we decided to eat here which was just across the street. Our party had gyros and a burger. All of the food was good as was the service. We then had both the peanut butter cheesecake and the key lime pie. Both were delicious. It... More

This is a nice little local spot we've been to several times a year since living here. It's a GREAT late night dinner spot - their desserts are made in house by the super nice family that owns the restaurant. The lunches and dinners are solid and we enjoy them. They have a nice view of the river from the... More

One of few restaurants in St. Marys central. Conveniently located on Main Street directly across from ferry terminal. It has both indoor and outdoor seating - with the outdoor tables on a porch facing the water. Menu is slanted towards Greek food with some seafood and pasta options. Good service. Full bar, several beers on tap but limited wine by... More

All three people in my party enjoyed the food and the venue here, but the service was beyond poor the day we were there. We waited a long time for everything but a table.

We went here for lunch and dinner was OUT as we were still so full. The chicken parmigiana was wonderful. The chicken very moist. The shrimp were fresh and lightly batter. All in all great restaurant.

We stopped by for lunch. Ate outdoors. Very peaceful, almost no traffic. Good service. Fried shrimp delicious, buanother two or three in the order would have been nice. Pasta dish was superb. Kids burger was more than enough for any kid.

I was excited to eat here for the first time with my husband for our anniversary. We got to the restaurant and ordered drinks and an appetizer of pita chips and hummus. We waited a very long time for the appetizer although the restaurant was not very busy yet. The appetizer was very good but my husband didn't eat it... More
