A Whole Day of Eating at the Best St. Michaels Restaurants

St. Michaels bayside location lends itself to a robust dining scene that features a lot of fresh seafood. Indulge in area classics like oysters on the half-shell and Maryland steamed crab. Or, just enjoy the rich flavors of fresh fish from the bay and produce from our soil. In St. Michaels, we know seafood. We also know fine wine, craft pizza, authentic Italian cuisine, and more. Taste your way through our area at these St. Michaels restaurants. With so many places to dine, you’ll want to book your stay for at least a couple of days.

Be Sure to Dine at These St. Michaels Restaurants


Start your day off right with breakfast at our inn. Whether you plan on exploring our beautiful outdoors or just sitting and taking in the scenery, it’s important to fuel your body and mind. Our wholesome buffet-style breakfast is just what you need. Each morning you can enjoy sweet and savory dishes that are made in-house by our experienced baker.

Our breakfast offerings change frequently by what’s in season, but you can almost always count on a warm egg dish, pancakes or French toast casserole, locally-farmed meats, and house-made granola with fresh fruit.


Once you’ve filled up on breakfast, explore all of the wonderful things to do in St. Michaels. After a few hours of strolling around our area, stop in for lunch at The Crab Claw. This St. Michaels restaurant offers views of the Miles River and serves up regional fare. The Crab Claw has been owned by the same family since its inception. This family’s passion for creating and sharing a menu that represents the area’s bounty has translated across decades.

Dinner & Drinks

Ava’s Pizzeria has been creating delicious, award-winning pizzas, sandwiches, salads, and more since 2008. Ava’s is, by most accounts, one of the best restaurants in St. Michaels! Not just because of their menu, but also because Ava’s is dedicated to the St. Michaels community. Their community partners list is almost as extensive as the menu! They also have a variety of beers on tap, as well as wine and cocktails.

Limoncello is another great St. Michaels restaurant serving Italian fare. This restaurant emulates a trattoria in its food, decor, and service. Wine and dine like the Italians when you visit Limoncello! Don’t overlook their drink deals, either. Stop by on Mondays and Tuesdays for half-price bottles of wine, happy hour, and seasonal cocktails.

Who knew a little slice of Italy was waiting for you in St. Michaels?
