I and my host Dory ate lunch here. Food was wonderful. I had a crab cake and the portions were great for the price. Had corn pudding for the first time, loved it. Great gift shop.

This was part of our trip to the Smith Island when we cruised over from Crisfield, MD. The restaurant was very good and the Smith Island cake is excellent. We even bought one to take home with us.
