See Food Our Way!
COVID-19 NOTE: As of 5pm on June 12, Dorchester County restaurants are allowed to offering indoor dining (with some restrictions) as well as outdoor dining and carry-out. We’ve put together a guide to those restaurants that we update frequently as hours, offerings, and more change. We’ve also included local food producers and farmers who are currently selling their products – crabs, oysters, meat, produce, and more – directly to the public.
Dorchester County is known for its delectable seafood–jumbo lump crab, rockfish, oysters, and more–fresh from our local waters. Many of our restaurants are waterside, and some are accessible by boat. You’ll also discover some surprises here, such as sophisticated restaurants tucked away down country lanes and in small towns. Review our Dorchester Dining Guide online. Dorchester County is also home to a personal shopping service called Beat the Rush Delivery that provides delivery of food from local restaurants and markets.
Whether you’re dining dockside, riverside, downtown, or in the country, you’ll enjoy that classic Eastern Shore hospitality. We’re also home to a lovely family-owned winery and vineyard. Don’t miss two of our biggest seafood events: the Taste of Cambridge Crab Cook-Off in July and the Seafood Feast-I-Val in August!
