I have been here with a friend in 3 separate months and each time received excellent food but terribly slow service. The daily specials have proven to be extremely tantalizing - we have had a wonderful lobster roll sandwich and crabcake dish. You will definitely get a good meal here, but be prepared to wait for it!

The food is delicious, home cooking, JR, the owner is from this area, a great chef. He fixes fabulous dishes, as well as the good old chicken and dumplings of the South. The atmosphere is quaint, small, intimate, location on the 'it' street of Chestertown. Small tables out front for nice weather dining. JR often goes table to table to see if everything is to satisfaction. He has delicious desserts as well as the wonderful main entree's. I highly recommend it.

Made it back to the Lemon Leaf Cafe on Friday and absolutely enjoyed sharing lunch with my family and teenage son's friend. I had the cream of Asparagus soup and Lobster Roll, both delicious specials that day. The other four enjoyed the cream of crab soup, followed by huge burgers and pulled pork bbq. My husband said the bbq has just the right amount of kick to it and my daughter couldn't eat the roll because the portion of bbq was so large. Both 16 year old boys (a.k.a. eating machines) were satisfied with the burgers which require tow hands to hold. For dessert, The kids all had the brownie sundae and loved every bite. My husband tried the apple crisp and has a new favorite! It is served warm in a dessert glass with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. I had to have my lemon meringue pie, the best I have found anywhere! The service is warm, friendly and attentive and JR, the owner is always circulating through the dining room to make sure everyone is happy and enjoying their meal. When you are dining at the Lemon Leaf Cafe, you know the goal of the staff: that every guest has a great meal and feels at home!

The Lemon Leaf Cafe is a lovely little restaurant in the center of Chestertown. The staff is friendly and the food is very good. The crab bisque is wonderful; creamy and full of crab. The lemon meringue pie is perfection - homemade with a flaky crust, silky lemon filling and real meringue (not the kind made from powdered egg whites). Stop in, you will be happy you did!

Although very clean and friendly, the service was a bit slow between appetizer and entre. The crab soup was tasty but tepid, somewhat surprising given the lunch hour. Although the food was wholesome the menu was overpriced.
