    What a lovely evening. We had a reservation but decided to sit outside as the patio was less crowded and the weather was unexpectedly gorgeous. Best cocktails ever and our meals were beyond savory. We had salmon, crab cakes and the lemon chicken and they were all delicious. It does get busy at the Island Hideaway but as long as you want to relax and take in the waterfront vibes there's no place like it.

    This place always has some specials along with their awesome menu. I would not recommend the “Asian sticky ribs.” They sound good but they are tough and the Asian marinade is delicious but not as sticky of a glaze that you’re thinking. Had their avocado toast—amazing! And their mahi can’t be beat either as a sandwich or in their tacos. Best fries I’ve had in the Southern MD area!

    We sat outside, but in the tented area, and it was very pleasant. Our service was great. The draft beer options ranged from light, to stout, with IPAs available also. I enjoyed the Solomon's Surfer cocktail, and my husband enjoyed a local craft on draft. We each tried a SPD special and both were good size servings and delish. I came specifically because they advertised colcannon. Highly recommend.

    We enjoyed a perfect Valentines Day dinner and drinks here. We are from Missouri visiting family, so this place was a very cool find. I will definitely eat here again next time we are in town. Lobster bisque and crab dip were amazing. The steaks and crab cakes were also top notch.

    The food is consistently good but the table we were seated at was in middle of the busy walkway. I made my Valentine's Day dinner reservation 3 weeks ahead of time and requested a window table, to enjoy the view of the harbour. The waitress tried to get us one one of the three empty window tables, but the manager said they were reserved. Good food aside, I'll go to Ruddy Duck or La Vela next time, where they recognize the value of a local, regular customer.

    Overlooking the water & boats, this place is a special find! Very nice menu with something for everyone. Our party enjoyed mahi-mahi, shrimp scampi, & a pork chop dish. All dishes were perfectly prepared, seasoned & served hot. My wife has a very discerning palate (as in fussy), and she already wants to go back to try their other dishes. The service was excellent—friendly, attentive & professional. A little pricey; but hey, aren’t all the restaurants these days? Will definitely return.

    Usually a better experience than this last time. Arrived 10 min early for our reservation but waited in crowded host stand area for over 15 minutes. Had asked for a “out of the way” table for our anniversary dinner on reservation, but was sat at a table directly against bar corner and it was so loud I couldn’t hear a word my husband or server spoke!! We ordered an appetizer of crab dip (which was terrible and runny -worst I’ve had in MD! ) and I ordered a cup of the cream of crab soup. My soup came out in minutes and the dip came out 15 minutes later. The soup was delicious but not very hot. I had a salad with chicken (was told steak was not an option) which was good and my husband had the raviolis. He wasn’t a fan of the marinara sauce; which he had me taste and it tasted very sweet IMO. We opted for a dessert to go due to the noise level (which was fantastic) and chalked this visit up to a bad night. Our server and hostess were very pleasant and friendly, it just seems each time have we come lately, quality and selection of menu items has stalled or lapsed while prices have gone up. We had hoped for more for our $150 and our anniversary dinner

    Seated upon arrival in accordance with our reservation. This was our first time going here. Ordered soup and salad to start which came out quick and was great. Main courses for a party of four took a very long time to come out. Three tables that sat after us actually received their food and we’re almost done eating before we received ours. When the food did come out it was very good, hot, and correct. Not sure why this happened but it did.

    IH is consistently excellent. Usually it is pretty busy so I would suggest making a reservation. The IH burger is one of the best I've ever eaten and my wife goes there exclusively for the burger. I have tried many other items on the menu and all are excellent. Also, their desserts are amazing.

    The 3 of us had a wonderful holiday lunch. The mussels were excellent as was everything we tried. This is our third time there in as many months, so we must like it! Probably the best restaurant in Solomons. Nicole took excellent care of us and was very patient with (we are an older group and sometimes things need to be repeated ;-). Make sure to leave room for the tasty dessert!
