This grand Victorian saloon is on two levels, with four distinctive bars, including an oyster bar, and six dining rooms. Open for dinner til late in the evening, it is the perfect spot before or after a Verizon Center event, movie or the theatre, and is open for lunch and dinner daily, as well as Saturday and Sunday brunch.

"This was about our 6th lunchtime at Clyde's and it was just excellent in all respects...we were seated right away, the manager saw that our server was busy with another table so he took the order himself and correctly got all the complications that one of our guest insisted on in her entrée, the dishes were served together and were all excellent (and hot), and our window table was very attractive. And the prices are really reasonable especially considering the downtown, central location. Way better than the Clyde's in Chevy Chase!"

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.

"Open since last summer, this converted general store has an attractive, charming one-room dining room and bar, with outstanding food that has high aspirations. You wouldn't think that tiny Royal Oak would support a high-quality, destination restaurant, but it seems to be doing just fine. Friday and Saturday nights are booked. But the real find is Sunday brunch...the French toast is amazing.
I wish they had a greater number of lighter and cheaper entrees both at dinner and lunch (can't they do a hamburger?) and it's a little on the expensive side generally but not too bad. So if you are looking for something more upscale in the Easton/St. Michaels area, this is definitely worth the drive! You won't be disappointed.

"On our 4th or 5th dinner here, and each one has been great. Even our Indian friends that we took here thought the food was authentic as if "back home." The portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. A wide range of menu item for both meat-eaters and vegetarians. The two-level dining rooms are pleasant but simple -- they could spend a little more on wall paper and carpets and make the place a little more upscale, but there's nothing to complain about."

Enjoy Chef Geoff's genuine hospitality and casual cuisine with an Italian flair. Lia’s is a neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Chevy Chase. Come for a glass of wine, hand tossed pizzas, fresh pasta, or charcuterie and cheese, and the result will be the same. You'll be back for more. Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all night on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff

A converted garage features soaring ceilings, garage doors that open onto the patio and outside bar, with a wood fired grill, raw bar and a vast craft beer list all make for the hottest restaurant on the Eastern Shore. A nice dinner for two or a quick burger at the open kitchen counter, you can always count on great food, friendly service and fun. Opened in November 2010, Brasserie Brightwell is located in the Easton Market Square at 206 North Washington Street in historic Easton, MD and serves French-inspired cuisine with an American twist. Owned/ operated by brothers-in-law Chef Brendan Keegan & Brian Fox of 208 Talbot fame, and Bob Yabroff.

"Our third dinner here...each time the food has been outstanding (salmon fresh and perfectly grilled, amazing burgers and fries, soups and salads delicious). Typical brasserie fare so the menu is broad enough to satisfy anyone. It's an informal, fun and somewhat noisy restaurant (so if you are looking for an elegant and quiet experience this isn't the place). The outdoor patio is nice during the warm season but unfortunately it overlooks a very boring street and parking lot. Reasonably priced given the high quality of the food."

A Livanos' family creation, Molyvos is the closest you can get to Greece in New York City. Critics agree that Molyvos serves perhaps the finest example of Greek cuisine in New York, and beyond. People from around the world have discovered that Molyvos serves the true foods and wines of Greece, along with a large dose of the country’s warm and lively spirit. Molyvos’ menu is built upon the home-style cooking of Greece using authentic recipes, classical cooking techniques and superior ingredients. The wine list, under the keen direction of Kamal Kouiri, is unique for its depth and breadth of excellent Greek labels and small producers from the Mediterranean whose wine deserves to be enjoyed. Molyvos also boasts a carefully selected Pre and Post-theatre menu that perfectly accompanies an evening of entertainment.

"Have been going here for business lunches for 5 years and it never disappoints. Consistently excellent Greek dishes, perhaps not inspired or extraordinary, but always delicious. Reasonably priced. Following a renovation about 2 years ago the dining room is very pleasant and many tables are nicely spaced so it's possible to have a conversation. Really nothing negative to say at all....try it!"
