Description: 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.

After reading all the great reviews maybe we were expecting too much. It was good but nothing to write home about. Both our dinners were average, good but not great. Service was fine. I think I would try another place if in the area. But there is not much in this area. Would possibly try again in the future.

The food and atmosphere is great at the Charlotte. I was having a lovely dinner a few nights ago, noticing that there were only a few workers on a busy night. As one of them was busy resetting tables as the other two girls were taking orders, and waiting tables, I noticed the boy walking over to Charlotte to help... More

Have eaten here many dozens of times; Try Gary's Mojitos; or ask to review his scotch book. Steaks are great here.

This may be the best restaurant in the entire state of Va or even the entire east coast. From wine list to crème brulee (sp?) this place can't be beat. Outstanding host, great wait staff and a chef who is just fabulous from his delicious creations to their fine presentation. The night we were there music was Ella Fitzgerald doing... More

We have known Onancock to be a small town with better than average restaurants, but we were super impressed with our meal here during our recent visit. My husband and I both chose the Prix Fix three course meal, which includes any selection from the menu of appetizer, main course and dessert (they note on the menu that the Prix... More

The Charlotte is the place for an excellent dining experience. The menu offers a wide variety of excellently prepared and presented meals. The service is attentive, without being intrusive and professionally pleasant. We chose The Charlotte to celebrate our 50th anniversary and could not have been more pleased. It was everything we expected.

I was in tiny Onancock visiting a friend who lives there. First night, we walked to The Charlotte for dinner - she's a regular there, and I can see why. A wonderful little place with a lively bar and back room, plus a larger more formal dining room. It was a busy Friday so we took a table in the... More

We were recommended The Charlotte Hotel for dinner by a friend whom we were visiting - the restaurant came highly recommended and we can see why. We were promptly seated and our drink order was taken. Gary was at the bar and mixed a great martini! Being on the Eastern Shore we felt we needed some seafood "fix" and the... More
