Loved my steak and the strawberry mojito. Great place to bring my old college roommate for dinner.


Absolutely wonderful and fabulous! Cannot wait to go back.


Great service, love the outdoor seating, not a bad selection however prices remain high.


The best restaurant in Southern Maryland! Quality service, delicious cocktails, appetizers, and entrees. Quaint location in the heart of Leonardtown.


If you don’t know someone that works there don’t go! This was my fourth time and I’ve always gone with someone who knew someone that worked there. I was so excited to take my son. We had reservations and arrived early. There were plenty of seats but we were seated right by the entrance. It was tough to hear and the waitress did not seem to like coming towards the entrance. I ordered a martini and I’ve had several martinis on my previous visits. They were great! I’ve never tasted such a bad or poorly made drink! Couldn’t drink it. The waitress did not pause long enough to notice until the end of the meal I had not touched it. We also ordered iced tea with our meal, never got it! It’s hard to explain. This is the 4th time I’ve been there. and if you look you’ll see I did a very nice review of this restaurant back in may. It takes a lot to make me criticize a place I liked so much, but I would seriously discourage people that don’t know any of the employees to dine there. Bottom line to me, it’s a wonderful place I just had a bad experience this time. The waitress was very polite and courteous. I hope to go back again.

Our experience was great. Service was attentive and not over bearing. Food was delicious. They have a great variety of menu items. We shared brussel sprouts and fried green tomatoes. The brussel sprouts were a little burnt and dry, but we were fine with it. The fried green tomatoes were done really well and the sauce was a tasty accent. I had the chicken and waffles. The chicken was perfectly seasoned, breaded and fried. The ambiance is relaxed and soothing. Can't wait to go back and try something new.


Ate both specials and were very good. Mussel app and Lobster pasta. Dinner was good as always. Jacob, our server was professional and polite as he managed our evening with ease. This is a well put together restaurant worth the drive anytime you want a great experience anytime without question.


Everything was amazing. I had the tuna tartare for the first time and it was fantastic.


Food was plated beautifully and equally as delicious. Atmosphere was pleasant. Server, Kenneth, was wonderful and attentive. Overall an enjoyable experience.


Overall the food was good. However, My appetizer (Brussels Sprouts) were a bit tough and had an after taste. My entree (kale salad with salmon) and dessert (keylime pie) were delicious.


Date night with my husband and another couple. We started with the oysters Rockefeller which were delicious. My husband had the crab cakes and I had the blackened salmon. Both dishes were delicious and beautifully plated. Our friends had the paella and the scallops. Everyone enjoyed their dinners. The drinks were outstanding and the service was accommodating and pleasant. We love SB and look forward to dining there again soon.

Wonderful as always! Definitely recommend the chocolate martini at the end of your meal. We had the salmon and the pesto linguine and 💯 recommend both!


It was OK, not particularly outstanding for the price. Probably wouldn't rush back.

We have eaten at Sweetbay 5 times. Never had a bad meal and always have had good, knowledgeable servers. The prices I believe are in line with the quality of the Food and the service.


Come for brunch. Was seated immediately. I ordered the shrimp and grits. It was a beautiful dish but the combination was too much. Too much cream in the grits, too much sausage. I didn’t enjoy the dish. Simplicity would be best for this one. But other than that everything else was great.
