We had a lovely dinner for 2 couples celebrating our mutual anniversaries. Our waitress, Brooke, was pleasant and knowledgeable. 3 diners ordered seafood entrées which were delicious and beautiful. 1 diner ordered lamb and was very pleased. The restaurant was out of the bottle of...wine ordered so Tommy (the sommelier?) upgraded us to a more expensive bottle of wine at no charge. Tuesday was 1/2 price oysters and steampots so we enjoyed both for appetizers. We were each served with a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversaries. It had been some time since we had dined-in at Chesapeake Inn. We will not wait so long to return. Thanks for the lovely evening!More

Menu selection and quality of food served is outstanding! Service is absolutely fantastic. Hard to believe that the management here with indoor and outdoor Tiki Bar Dining can truly amaze the entire dining experience!! If arriving by boat, the dock staff is absolutely amazing !

We have been returning to this place for many years to celebrate special occasions. This visit for a birthday dinner was a bit disappointing mainly due to the poor taste and preparation of my wife's dinner. Her crab bisque soup was over salted, lacked evidence...of pureed veggies, and lacked evidence of tomato usual for such bisque soups. Her U-10 sea scallops were plump and nicely pan fried, but they sat upon a very watery butternut squash puree and fig thai chili glaze. This detracted from their taste. The included risotto was not creamy or flavorful. My bourbon salmon was cooked well, and the included pancetta and green beans were done well. The desserts were good. Overall the value of our meals and food preparation are in decline. The service was very good, however.More

We were looking to grab lunch someplace that we had not been before and explore a bit. We found this place on the reservations app we use and decided to give it a try. They have valet parking but I do not like anyone in...my car so I parked a couple of blocks away in the downtown area. We were met by a very friendly host who checked our reservation and deposited us at a nice table by the window. Shortly after a very cheerful waitress came over to initiate the ordering process. She was helpful with any questions and got my order exactly right despite having a few modifications to the order. The decor and vibe in the place is very nice. It is expensive for lunch but at least we got good food and service in a nice place.More

What a wonderful surprise. The food and service was simply excellent. We did not try their extensive sushi menu but the quality of the salmon sandwich and shrimp appetizer reflected the care taken with seafood. Beautiful view. They could not take us in the dining...room for lunch as it was packed with reservations but the bar area worked out fine. We were in the upstairs area. Overall, a very good value for the high food quality.More

Fine dining prices for dinner without fine food or atmosphere. Fish was overcooked, not flavorful. Requested window table for special occasion when placing reservation. Both ignored. Excellent service.

Girls' night out. Called for reservations only 30 minutes out and we got a nice table overlooking the harbor. Menu is very extensive with lots of choices. All four of meals were excellent. Three had the salmon which they enjoyed very much and I had...the shrimp papparadella. My dish was huge with delicious sauce and perfectly cooked shrimp (I wished though the tails were taken off---difficult to cut off in the middle of a saucy dish. Just my pet peeve.) Prices are a bit steep but very enjoyable. Apparently the outside dockside tables below us have a more casual menu as we saw pizzas and handheld meals.More

We picked this restaurant for a family gathering of 10. We had to make an early dinner reservation at 4 because of the crowd. It has both indoor and outside seating. Very interesting menu, leaning towards seafood. Everything was well prepared and very tasty. Prices...are a bit steep. I suggest if you go on a weekend, take advantage of valet parking for 5 dollars.More

Docked our boat at the marina for a night and ate dinner at the restaurant. The sushi was delicious! We also ordered a flatbread pizza - also very tasty. Had a great table outside on the water. Super fast and friendly service! Live music was...awesome!More

My son, daughter, grandsons and my wife's best friend and daughter and I joined together recently to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday on the waterside deck of the upstairs dining room. What a grand experience it was, from the enthusiastic greeting from the valets as...we arrived to our 2-year old grandson waving to all the patrons as we were leaving! Aside from the perfect weather, everyone's food was delicious and cooked as ordered. Most importantly, the service from our server, (she was more of an concierge) Kacie, was impeccable. Talk about going beyond the call of duty, she was marvelous and the perfect match for our two active grandsons who bonded with her immediately. If you have the opportunity to dine here, the one piece of advice we would give is, Ask for her!More

The food was amazing! The wait staff excellent. We had the Chesapeake Fries which were fries hot and crispy with cheese sauce topped with crab. I amreally not a FF person but I could not stop eating this appetizer. The other couple had there crab...bisque and they raved as well. For my entree I had the crab cob salad after eating all those carbs. My husband had the Superman sushi and my brother in law had the Mexican sushi. My sister in law had the rockfish taco . She only ate one and took the other two home. Definitely worth going again.More

Our meals were good tasting and evidently well prepared. Our server, Christine, was prompt, polite, and well-attended. We'll be back to dine upstairs for added water views of the "world's busiest" shipping canal, the C&D Canal. No cargo or tanker ships in close proximity to...the canal as we suspected that TS Elsa had scurried them to safe harbors or secured moorings. This is a nice place to boat, motorcycle, bicycle, and schmooze with friends.More
