I enjoyed the old house, renovated into a restaurant. The service was ok. The food was ok. The price was reasonable but I wouldn't go back.

I stumbled upon this old fashioned supper club. The wait was 30 minutes on a Friday night at peak time, not bad for an out of towner with no reservation. The service was friendly, food good and reasonably priced.

The service is wonderful, the food spectacular, and the atmosphere is right on target. I enjoyed my visit from start to finish. The restaurant came recommended by our hotel and I highly recommend it to you.

Loved the bar service, the table service, the choices available, the tastiness of the appetizer and entree. The only problem was that the food wasn't hot enough. Otherwise, I would have given this a total 5 rating.

We arrived at 5:40 hoping to take advantage of the early bird special but weren't seated until 6:30 (and we were told a 25 minute wait). The theme of this place is wait, wait, hurry, wait, wait. Service was NOT great. Waitress brought out warm napkin for cleaning up with my salad, it was cold by the time my food... More

Let me start by saying the food is amazing! Everything my husband and I had was delicious! The only problem we had was that while the Chesapeake knows how to take a reservation, they don't know how to keep a reservation. At 6:45 we were told that they were just starting to seat their 6:00 pm reservations. We had somewhere... More

I love this restaurant for its ambiance and for the food. I brought my sister for a birthday lunch and she loved it too. Together our lunch was $33 without tip which was very reasonable. I had their dirty martini, it's the best and only $5.95, my sis had the bloody mary and liked it as well. With an order... More

Dinner was very good. We both are a full meal and had two appetizers and it was $56. No oversized portions but plenty of good food for very reasonable price.

Chesapeake Seafood House has been a long standing member of the Springfield culture. If you are looking for a variety of good to better seafood, this location needs to be on your radar. They also have some not so hidden secrets. Like their lunch offerings and really goo coupon deals on non-seafood items. Worth a look !
