Why should I go? Opened in May of 2009, in a town steeped with culinary hotspots, Hemingway’s quickly established itself, thanks to a menu of hand-cut USDA Prime steaks and local and exotic seafood.
This is not your run-of-the-mill hotel dining room. Dark woods and sophistication, yes. Stuffiness and formality, no. The Guy Harvey “Old Man and the Sea” series of prints provides the perfect backdrop at the bar, should you decide to linger there a while prior to dinner. Hemingway’s has excellent signature cocktails, especially classic martinis. Stop in for happy hour – it’s become a locals’ favorite, and you know that’s always a good sign. Hemingway’s wants to help you get happy any night of the week, starting at 4pm, all year-round.
Speaking of year-round, don’t forget breakfast and lunch. The breakfast buffet is a serious crowd-pleaser if you’re not in an a la carte kind of a mood. And the oh-so-reasonable lunch menu is a winning combination of sandwiches, soups, salads and entreés.
Insider Tip: Want to access the weekly specials or entertainment schedule in advance? Check out www.hemingwayscapemay.com. And don’t forget about the sunset dining menu, which includes a soup or salad, entrée, and dessert for $15.95, although we think the best dessert is watching the actual sunset. Hop across the street for a front row seat on the promenade.
Prime signature steaks are the stars here — no small feat in a town surrounded by water. Filets, strip steaks, rib-eyes, sirloin and prime rib, to name a few.
Prime Rib Night
Great deals on the best prime rib in town, every Wednesday, all year-round.
If it’s Thursday, it must be seafood buffet night. This is so wildly popular in the summer that they have to serve it upstairs in their grand ballroom!
Start your day off right. As you’d expect, the steak-and-egg sandwich is excellent.
Their lunch menu features some seriously overstuffed sandwiches, and we mean seriously as in, taking even the half sandwiches home in a doggy bag.
Entertainment– Get your groove on at Hemingway’s bar all year, whether it’s DJ dance parties or your favorite pro sports on the six (yes, that’s SIX) high-def TVs.
