The award-winning restaurant features cuisine that is prepared using many Eastern Shore products. It is with great pride that we support local watermen, farmers, and area businesses. Because much of our fare is made from locally available ingredients, the menu changes frequently, often daily. Everything is house-made, including the ice cream! Our bar is well stocked, and the extensive wine list offers selections from around the world.

Lovely inside, eat in the Gallery or the Boardroom. Love the duck with pumpkin or citrus spoonbread (depends on the season). Gary makes the best drinks!

We were heading home after a long road trip, and stopped to visit a relative who lives near Onancock and he and his wife took us to the Charlotte Restaurant, and I am so glad he did. It was such a nice place. The owners are friendly and have created a restaurant with a relaxed elegance that was much appreciated... More

By far the best meal I have had in quite a while. We live near by so we're luck enough to be able to enjoy this gem on any occasion. The atmosphere is quiet and very enjoyable. And the food is beyond comparison, expertly prepared and presented. The owners were on hand to make sure your evening is as perfect... More

It would not be fair to limit this restaurant to "best in the area". For those who know the area, it does not encompass a lot of choices. The Charlotte Hotel would keep my rating no matter where it could be located. Sure, this gem found in a small bay side town of the eastern shore of Virginia is quaint... More

Personally if I could take the owners home w me to renovate my old farmhouse I would. Their simple decorating was very relaxing. I was so impressed. I am looking forward to sharing w more friends and family.

We visited the Charlotte Hotel Restaurant last night for the first time. The Restaurant has a very intimate and cozy atmosphere,perfect for a romantic dinner or night out with a small group of friends. We ordered filet and salmon. Both well prepared and presented beautifully. Dessert was a toffee pudding, which was deliciously warm, sweet and definitely worth the calories!... More

A wonderful restaurant, excellent service. The menu was imaginative, with a thoughtful selection of dishes. My steak was delicious, perfectly cooked and full of flavour. Appetizers and deserts were superb.
