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.

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.

In the quaint little town of Onancock on the Eastern Shore of Virginia sits the charming Charlotte Hotel. Though small in number of guest rooms, the dining room makes us for its limited space with wonderful cuisine. I have often said I would rather have a limited selection menu of very high quality than a menu that promises a cornucopia... More

Many reviews about the Charlotte Hotel point out that in a small town with good restaurants, this place is a notch above, good food prepared well, etc. My wife and I completely agree we those reviews on all counts. I would like to point out that the entrees on the menu are different enough to interest someone who eats out... More

Our quest for great fining was not disappointed at this restaurant and after staying a few days in the area this was the best by far! A peaceful and welcoming dining room and great service made the evening memorable and the menu selections were excellent and much enjoyed by all four of us. Would recommend only this one dining delight... More

I have eaten at the Charlotte many times. It is a lovely gem tucked into the center of picturesque Onancock. It has a formal dining room, a less formal "Board Room", and a small intimate bar. My friends and neighbors come here repeatedly, and it is always recommended to our visitors. The food preparation and presentation are outstanding. Many of... More
