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.

Delicous food in a quaint little botique hotel.

My son and I ate here while staying in the hotel. (Note: We also ate breakfast here, but this review is only for dinner.) We both felt dinner was outstanding. I ordered an eggplant entree while my son ordered a flank steak sandwich on brioche bread. The presentation was good, and the food... read more

This was a small dining room in a boutique hotel, but the food was top notch delicious! I had scallops with risotto, green beans and a pepper sauce. My husband had chicken Oscar over citrus spoon bread with asparagus. They were both expertly prepared and beautifully served. We also tried the local Machipango chardonnay wine, which was just delightful. A+!

We were spending the weekend on a friend's boat in Onancock when we stumbled across a real gem of a restaurant in the Charlotte Hotel!!! The place is as quaint & old fashioned as the town but the food is fantastic, so much so that we ate there two nights in a row!!! They have nightly specials & our group... More

Just back from weekend in Onancock, which was the first time there and really enjoyed. Dinner at Charlotte was delicious. App was shrimp flash fried with tiny potato strings around it -- very good. For mains, I had great scallops with a red pepper sauce that came with a big portion of risotto with cheese, tomatoes, in it. Husband had... More

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
