    About Us

    Named in honor of the town that fooled the British, Ruse restaurant embraces the legacy of St. Michaels while providing a fresh take on local cuisine. The oyster bar is Ruse’s ode to the rich nautical history of the Eastern Shore. Showcasing a variety of oysters and shellfish from the Chesapeake and other American waterways, the raw bar program is complemented by brunch and dinner menus featuring seasonal, American cuisine developed by Chef Michael Correll. The beverage list has been thoughtfully curated by sommelier Allison Balin, with a focus on small production beer, wine, + spirits, and classic and contemporary cocktails.

    Defined by elevated, yet inviting design, attentive service, an innovative sommelier-led wine program, and seasonal, contemporary cuisine and cocktails, Ruse’s culinary program builds on the storied legacy of St. Michaels with a commitment to innovation, quality, and hospitality.
