We have been here dozens of times over the years. It is always excellent food and great service. Fish is always fresh and well served. My wife and I love to eat there on date nights

The food was good and the atmosphere was delightful. The parking is ok but there are places to park and you need the exercise anyway!

There is absolutely nothing special about this place whatsoever. People make such a big deal out of it and I have no idea why. My husband and I ate here a couple of times. The lobster bisque is delicious. Other than that I'm not impressed. I'm a southern girl. I love fried food. It just seems like most of their... More

We like going downtown to Chesapekes. The food is always good and service excellant. This restaurant is owned locally and part of a chain of BBQ places. The bar is nice and a quiet atmosphere. Never really had a bad meal or experience and go for good basic seafood.

Not bad for inland seafood. A little pricey for what it is, but overall yummy food. Atmosphere was my favorite with the dim lighting. Waitress Ashley was super sweet and helpful with ordering. Worth a stop if you're craving seafood. Nice date night spot!
