The food, the service, the ambiance were all spectacular. Every time I’ve eaten there, I’ve been impressed. Always consistent. Plenty of elbow room between tables. My favorite restaurant.

About the restaurant
Water for Chocolate provides an intimate and savory experience with a nod to personal space and service.
Chef Sean Guy and his team prepares creative dishes using seasonal ingredients with the best of intentions.
The result is a fresh, eclectic take on comfort food that elevates the familiar to wow!!
Pairings with "holistic cocktails" such as the house brewed ginger beer and a selected wine portfolio allows for guests to create real dining memories.

This was one of the best dining experiences I ever had and I fine dine very often. The most delectable food I’ve had in recent memory. It was incredible! Can’t believe they’ve been there for 17 years and this was my first time going. The portions were generous as well. Baltimore’s best kept secret! I’ll definitely be a regular moving forward.

We had an exquisite dining experience at Heirloom last night. The octopus was cooked to perfection, the Bibb salad was fresh, tasty and well-balanced. Our entrees of lamb and Artic char were equally delicious. I forgot to mention the gorgeous fresh mushroom mix as a side dish, the sourdough bread and herb butter and homemade crackers all were incredible as well. Dessert of a blue cheese plate and rice pudding were wonderful finishes to this great meal. Our server suggested the perfect wine pairings. The timings and service were all top-notch. The ambiance in a lovely old house is quiet and serene and conducive to conversation. Overall a wonderful experience of exceptionally high quality, a standout among many fine restaurants on the Eastern Shore.

I gave the food five stars last time we came. This time the flatbread was not hot and the pasta with mushrooms was way too salty. My husband ate it but I would have had to of sent it back. My scallop dish was amazing as was our other dishes.

Great neighborhood gem of a restaurant. Pleasant, upscale casual American bistro vibe. Was in Baltimore for a work trip, staying right by Camden Yards, and was looking for a restaurant to offset the high-priced tourist traps in the Inner Harbor. My team loved the pleasant 1-mile walk through a nice residential neighborhood. The Future Ball cocktail is absolutely delicious and super inventive - I've never had anything like it. We all loved the mezze platter we got to share to start, and everyone said their food was great. The Korean short rib is awesome and a hefty portion, my colleagues enjoyed the burger, the bavette steak and the Peruvian chicken. Would absolutely go again, this was a super high quality and refreshing change from the usual expensive-but-bland business-person restaurants.

In all the years of coming to Bethany Beach, I'd never had the occasion to go to Parkway, and my first visit was a delightful surprise. I sat at the bar and received attentive and friendly service, and had the opportunity to talk with other diners who said they'd been coming for years. I had a great large-pour martini, beautiful wedge salad and ribeye steak that was perfectly prepared. It's not typical beach fare; if you're looking for a nice meal with a buzzy atmosphere, Parkway is a great option.
