Going to visit Chestertown, MD next weekend.  I  am familiar with the area, but I usually visit friends, and we don't eat out too much.  (Been to Watermans...probably not a good fit with my older mom).  Any places for breakfast or lunch?  There's lots going on...the Rock Hall festival, and the Waterfront festival (complete with cardboard boat races!) in Chestertown.  Thanks!

    Durdings Store in Rock Hall is a neat stop for ice cream - an old fashioned "soda fountain" place; they also serve some sandwiches and light fare.  Also in Rock Hall, the Bay Wolf Restaurant has good Austrian/local food in a slightly formal setting (and somewhat expensive, think $10-$15 for entrees).  They are open for lunch and maybe breakfast but do most of their business at dinner.  They catered my wedding 12 years ago and I was just back there last weekend (Sept 9) for the first time in 7 years - they're as good as ever.    I'd recommend both places as very appropriate for an older diner.  
    I'd like to learn more about places in Chestertown if others have opinions...

      I wonder if this would be of interest:
      Although I have not eaten there, a well known place in the area is the historic Kitty Knight House, about 15 min. drive from Chestertown. About more sedate and upscale than Waterman.
      Also nice and in the general area (further North on the canal) are some places in Chesapeake City, such a Bayard House:
