Atlantic Hotel Bistro Bar

Drummers Cafe Berlin, MD

The Atlantic Hotel Bistro Bar, known to locals as the Drummer’s Café, has served the Berlin & Delmarva communities for over a hundred years and still remains a favorite for visitors to the Eastern Shore.

The present day Atlantic Hotel Bistro Bar is as popular as ever with quality guest service and exceptional culinary creations.  The vintage bar offers fine wines by the glass or bottle, a fantastic selection of local craft beers, and fresh, creative cocktails.

Lite Fare is served from 11am to closing. A fine Dining menu begins at five o’clock with one of the most impressive dinner menus in the area.

An enclosed porch allows diners to enjoy the view of Berlin’s Historic District all year long.  In season the screened porch is a favorite spot to take in the charm of this small town, especially those warm summer nights when there is entertainment on the front porch.

Changing food availability and costs can result in occasional menu changes which may not be posted online. We are happy to answer any questions by calling the hotel directly.
