We’re Temporarily Closed

Thank you for your interest in Camellia Cafe. Unfortunately, we are closed for the near future because of an injury to my back/spine.  I am in the process of finding a surgeon and a chef that can run my kitchen.  Please help spread the word so I can get back to serving you again soon.  Thanks again for your overwhelming personal support, prayers, and patronage Follow our Facebook and Instagram accounts for updates on our reopening timeline as it evolves.

Camellia’s is by far my FAVORITE restaurant on the Eastern Shore! Every single thing I’ve eaten here is amazing. They have the best crab cake appetizer I’ve ever tasted. I recommend the pan roasted duck with baby brussels sprouts for an entree. The ambience of the restaurant is wonderful as well.

Visiting from Chicago. Business dinner for nine.  Fantastic meals (especially the grilled grouper and ribeye)!  Excellent service from April.  Highly recommended!
