UPDATE: On January 16, Kingfishers Seafood Bar and Grill announced on social media that they would be closing their doors after nearly 10 years.

“We will never forget all the special memories shared with our guests and our staff over the years,” the post continued.

The restaurant went on to address customers with outstanding gift cards, saying that anyone can email a photograph of the back side of the card with the QR Code and the card number above the barcode to solomonskingfishers@gmail.com

Anyone requesting a refund on those gift cards will be required to include their full name and a mailing address to have their reimbursement sent to.


SOLOMONS ISLAND, Md. — Two Calvert County seafood staples were recently planned to go up for auction, but court filings have changed the plans.

Stoney’s Kingfishers Seafood Bar & Grill in Solomon Island and a sister location in Broomes Island, Stoney’s Seafood House, were originally set to go to auction on October 19. However, a recent bankruptcy filing has forced a cancellation of the sale.

“We need to await the outcome in the Bankruptcy Court before we know if the properties will return to the auction block,” Paul Cooper, vice president of Alex Cooper Auctioneers told TheBayNet.com.

The two originally planned auctions included real estate only according to Cooper, as noted by the Baltimore Business Journal.

Stoney’s Kingfishers is roughly 4,800-square-feet and rests atop a 0.25-acre waterfront lot on the Patuxent River. Additionally, the restaurant has panoramic views and several boat slips. The property owners currently lease out the restaurant.

Currently, the Broomes Island location is temporarily closed, but it still has some pleasant features. The restaurant is roughly 6,200-square-feet and features a 300-seat restaurant that has been serving the community for over 20 years. The property also shares 1.34 acres of waterfront property with an adjacent bed-and-breakfast. There is also a 5,000 square-foot wedding venue next door.

The auction was supposed to take place at the Circuit Court for Calvert County. We will continue to provide additional details when they come available.
