The place is fabulous but it took us about 30 minutes to get use to the EXTREMELY loud noise level. It helped when few folks left.. our server, Rachael (?) was lovely. The Seafood Cannelloni best I have ever enjoyed with THE BEST MARINARA ! Thank you Hideaway. We will be back..

Meatloaf not eaten, sauce much too spicy and tasted store bought, shrimp and grits had a ring of grease around plate. Chicken strips and Mahi sandwich very good.
Second not so good experience in three weeks.

The service was awesome. Even when our waitress was busy another server would stop by to see if we needed anything. There was always someone to take care of us and the food was outstanding. We can’t wait to go back again.

The food and staff at Island Hideaway are outstanding. I love that it is a family owned and run business. It is my favorite local place to eat. Food is fresh and interesting. Pasta is homemade.
The restaurant is very popular so reservations are encouraged, but we've eaten at the bar as well when it is just the 2 of us. When its crowded it is a little noisy. The vibe is energetic and very upbeat. If you are looking for quiet and intimate this is not it.

I only gave a 3 star for service because when I made the reservation, I asked for seating next to a wall- sitting next to a wall allows me to hear better in a noisy crowd (I have a severe hearing impairment). When Chloe called to confirm- I asked if they could do this and she assured me that a table by the wall was set aside for me and my guest. When I arrived I was given a table right next to the bar which was quite full and noisy and the worst possible location for my needs. When I asked the hostess to honor my request I was told the restaurant was booked. I insisted- talked to the manager who again said the house was booked-- I asked him what was the point of making a reservation and reminded him that Chloe had confirmed that a table by the wall had been reserved for me. All this time there was an empty table next to the wall with a reserved sign on it-- I asked if I could have that table and only reluctantly it was given to me and my guest. Once the table issued was resolved everything else was wonderful -- its too bad that it had to happen this way-- it unnecessarily left a bad feeling for an otherwise nice place and good food

Our dinner was great from the start. We we seated immediately (had a reservation and the table was held for us). Service immediately addressed us and provided menus and specials. The food was excellent. Two of us ordered the Seafood pasta but with different sauses -Great. One order was shimp and grits -also great. A very nice evening.

One of the best local eateries. Coming from the DC area with its many restaurants, it has been a struggle to find a really good play to dine. The cocktails and entrees were delicious (homemade and fresh). Desserts were to die for. The Island Hideaway is destined to become a favorite.

I travel for a living. I go all over the country and eat at restaurants in many places. But this one...Island Hideaway...is in my TOP 5!! Great food, Solid Drinks, and excellent service. On the beautiful Solomons Island (straight out of the movies!) this tucked away secret is a jewel and needs to be on everybody's bucket list. Yep....it's awesome. It is a WIN-WIN!! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a great dining experience.

We love this restaurant! The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. We have never been disappointed. On our last visit, it was noisy, but that was only because the weather was terrible and all of the inside tables were full.

I've moved to southern Maryland from NYC and let me tell you, the difference in available cuisine here is mind boggling. Some restaurants in this area, my fiance and I are convinced, serve frozen and re-heated food. HOWEVER, I am SO ecstatic to find that Island Hideaway offers authentic food that TASTES authentic. The difference is so evident. The house-made pasta is highly reminiscent of fresh hand-made pasta I'd had in Italy, which is something I'd been craving since I returned from my trip (3 years ago. Yeah.). The ambiance is also very similar to restaurants in Florida with a view of the water/boats. Also the dessert is unbelievably good. DELICIOUS, but at the same time not heavy which is hard to do. I would definitely recommend this place to others, and will be back!
