We dine at Osprey Point often because of the great combination of service, ambiance and, of course, the food. The regular menu is well rounded and there's something for pretty much everybody. Weekly specials add variety and use locally available seasonal ingredients. We will be back!

We offer a local farm-to-table menu. Best described as American cuisine with a healthy twist, we prepare our dishes fresh daily. We use no added salt, bringing tea infusion as a flavor and spice. We have a full bar with hand-crafted cocktail specials. Located inside the historic Royal Oak General Store, you will find a fun, modern decor.

About the restaurant
New, to the historical Butcher's Hill community in Baltimore, MD comes Marta "fine food and spirits". A new restaurant and bar helmed by the husband and wife duo Matthew and Martha Oetting. Chef Matthew, has been developing Marta over the course of a prestigious career that spans over two decades. Martha Oetting is no stranger to hospitality herself, working in the beer, wine and spirit industry as a brand ambassador for over 15 years. Martha Oetting tackles the bar program, with plans to feature specialty cocktails including unique negroni, digestif, and appertif concoctions. Chef Matthew's dinning menu features stylish American cuisine with a thick Italian accent. Raw preparations in the crudo section are headlined by chef Matthew's signature tuna tartar cannoli. Other stand outs are found in the housemade pasta section, or the carefully curated entrees section. A comfortable and inviting bistro atmosphere welcomes guests to this remarkable Baltimore dinning destination.

Marta is one of my favorite restaurants. I was thrilled to introduce it to a friend on my most recent visit. The quality of the ingredients is exceptional, and the menu is innovative. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

About the restaurant
It all began with a love story and a dream. Linwood, a chef, and Ellen, a reporter, met 36 years ago in a restaurant of course! They married and began to envision that someday they would open a restaurant of their own. The restaurant’s first business plan was written at their dining room table on an electric typewriter. In 1988 Linwoods opened its doors, and it has been a labour of love for more than thirty years.

Linwoods’ cuisine consists of the freshest ingredients, and inventive preparation. Our service is warm and attentive. We have developed a reputation for consistency an attention to detail. These qualities are key to our catering business as well. Our team has worked hard to connect to our community, and we value our customers. These values have been central to Ellen and Linwood’s vision, and we hope are felt by our customers each day.

This has become my favorite restaurant in Lewes over the past few years. The only thing better than the food is the service. 5 ⭐️ all the way!

Fabulous dining experience. The owner and executive chef came out to meet each patron. Service was attentive and superb. Food was exceptional. Wine list was exhaustive and not overly priced. The venue is historic and cozy. Absolutely a first rate venue.

Love Blue Moon, have dined there many times for 20 years. First time the quality of both our entrees was off. Mahi mahi was way too salty and peppery. The rib eye steak was not as tasty as before. The rest of the meal was great. Three courses with wine pairing--all wines were very good, pineapple salad, chocolate ganache cake, and all the side vegetables outstanding. We will go back.
