  • "My meal was not good. I had the Ahi tuna and it was not sushi grade n not prepared very good. The outside was grey. Others in my group were very pleased w their choices."

  • "This restaurant has it all. On the water and you can dine on the deck or inside. Food is great and since it was crowded and no where to park in the area, they had valet parking. Sign up for their emails and you get a free entree on yur birthday. Love it."

  • "All of the dishes were well made and tasted excellent but it is an expensive menu."

  • "The best thing here is the location on the river. It is a great place to sit and relax at the end of the day. The food is good but a little overpriced. The fish is fresh and they offer a variety of ways to have it prepared; from grilled to fried."

  • "We have dined here many times in the past, both on the deck and in the restaurant upstairs. On this occasion it was my girlfriends birthday and as in the past times we were not disappointed. We waited for an outside table on the rail and had a fantastic dinner. The duck was fabulous as always and the Mahi Mahi was delicious. I had the 20oz Porterhouse special which was cooked to perfection."

  • "Whether you want elegant indoor dining, relaxed dining on the deck overlooking the canal, or the vibrant nightlife bar scene; the Chesapeake offers it all. On weekends you're likely to find a wedding going on but there is plenty of room to accommodate everyone. The food is excellent. The service is good. After dinner we left the upper deck to enjoy the band in the bar on the lower deck. While the atmosphere changed radically from the countryclub set to the partyers, we were impressed by the quality of the bar food being served and remarked that we ought to eat here on a subsequent visit."

  • "I came across this place by accident, maybe not quite by accident - I was traveling through the area and had my handy Open Table app. What a surprise! Food choices were excellent, the quality was outstanding and the staff very accomodating. I had such a good time, I returned the next day for lunch and was just as pleased. Don't miss this gem of the neighborhood in Chesapeake City."

  • "This is my second time to the Chesapeake Inn. The food, service, atmosphere is fabulous. It is especially nice that the restaurant rests by the water on the C & D Canal...you're able to watch the tugboats and barges go on by. It just adds to the scenery making it unique. There is also music which is on the outside patio. So, you can have a few different choices of seating. You can either have fine dining outside with music or fine dining inside without music. OR you can have casual dining inside or outside with the music on the lower level of the restaurant. Many options are available!"

  • "On a Wednesday afternoon, my wife and myself decided to take a relax day. We went to the restaurants outside fine dining. Mid-afternoon, it was quiet, we had a couple of Rieslings, appetizers, and seafood entrees. A July afternoon could be uncomfortable but we picked the right day to enjoy a quite afternoon with a good view of the water and boats. It reminded us of a similar day years ago in Maine. It was our 1st time but we will be back, we live in King of Prussia Pa and not that far."

  • "Our waiter should never have been a member of the wait staff but I would not want him fixing my food either. His grooming and hygiene was awful. My food was lukewarm--fish stuffed with crab--tasty, but not delivered hot. The first visit here on Father's Day was good--this time, not so good. We may return once more, but we will eat outside."

  • "We loved our dinners and the wonderful view! I had the seafood burrito and hubby had fish. We shared the wonderful crab bisque. Highly recommend all of it!"

  • "I recently treated my husband to a Sunday dinner at the Chesapeake Inn--a family member also came along. We had never been there before. We were very pleased especially with the view and the food. The food was absolutely delicious and came with good sized portions. Parking was a problem on the day we visited. But we got lucky as a parking spot became available right at the front door. We plan to visit again."

  • "We had a very nice anniversary dinner. Very good food and service while sitting on the second floor deck overlooking the docks and harbor. Nice evening to remember."

  • "This restaurant has a terrific outdoor bar scene that is very busy and popular. Often overlooked is fine food service inside that offers a terrific view of the Canal and the ships that travel through. Baked Salmon "Chesapeake" (lobster sauce and lump crab meat) was cooked perfectly, and the taste was great. Blackened Swordfish was also properly prepared, not at all dry, and flavorful but not overpowered by the seasoning. Our server was very pleasant and very efficient. Nice job by all."

  • "Took our family and a friend to the Chesapeake Inn for dinner to celebrate a special occasion, and had an outstanding time. Various seafood dishes we had were all fantastic. Service was excellent. And the view is a big attraction. The restaurant staff was very accommodating with a couple of our special requests, for instance around seating and customizing an entree. The only slight irritant was that there were a few flies around occasionally. My understanding is they are due to the opening to the outdoor deck. Weren't too bad, and certainly didn't take away from the overall outstanding experience, but since I've now experienced that twice lately, it would be nice to see this fixed. Bottom line, great place and dining experience!"

  • "Excellent crab cakes. Vegetables well prepared-not over cooked but crisp. The only problem I found was a limited parking area considering the seating capacity. On my first attempt to dine here ( Sunday at 6 pm late April ) the bikers were in force and the parking area was a sea of bikes with the area blocked off with traffic cones,. Valet service was available but who wants to pay for valet service in Chesapeake City?Having no place to park we left. "

  • "choice of fresh fish was outstanding - wish side vegetables were more interestingly prepared had requested a window side table when I made on line reservation several days in advance but not what we got when we arrived service was well paced - something hard to find these days"

  • "The food here is very good and it has a good wine list, including a good selection of wines at $20/bottle. The service is no better than you get at Friday's, Red Lobster, or some other chain; one expects more at a restaurant in this price range. Also, make sure that you have $4 ready when you pull up to the restaurant, it is valet parking only, so to add insult to injury you have to pay to park. I will not be rushing back to this place. "

  • "Went with friends on a Friday night. I was able to make a reservation easily on OpenTable and was immediately seated in a great round booth with amazing views. We were able to get a bottle of great wine that was reasonably priced. They have 20 wines under $20. Tookway to long to order and longer to get entrees. Food was good, no complaints. Thought side dishes outshined the fish. "

  • "Started with a wonderful seat at the window, as the hostess put it "best seat in the house"! She was very welcoming! Our server was great in giving us all the specials and answering any questions. Had cocktails first, our server gave us plenty of time and never rushed us. We both had the crab bisque, was delicious, lots of crab. My husband had crab cakes and they were all crab meat, not filler, very good. I had a seafood stew, shrimp, clams, oysters, mussels, scallops and a white fish in a spicy red sauce, just wonderful! A very enjoyable meal and great service. We will return. "

  • "Food and atmosphere were good; however, the service was a little slow. We were there for brunch, when we got up to get our meal our salad plates were not cleared, we had to push them to the middle of the table. The same when we went for dessert, we had to push our meal plates to the center of the table because they were not cleared. Had to flag down waiter for drink order. It was a little embarrassing as we took out of town guests after bragging about the restaurant to them it didn't hold up to our bragging."

  • "We were there last Friday night to celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary with some friends. I have to say that the best part of the evening was our server, Sydney. She was stellar! From helping one of us decide on what kind of draft beer to drink, to providing us all glasses of champagne with strawberries shaped like a heart, to a dessert with Happy 25th Anniversary written in a raspberry sauce - she made the evening special! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Thank you Sydney!"

If you want a place to take someone, a date, friends, out of town clients or just family this is the place to impress them! I would highly recommend !! Make sure to check out the downstairs as well they have a great place for dancing with live entertainment."
