Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

Make sure to check out the downstairs as well they have a great place for dancing with live entertainment."

  • "Our reservation was 9:15, the staff was tired and the food was OK. We had to walk a great distance in the ice to get to the restaurant as there was no parking available. I have visited this restaurant previously and had a great experience but not on our special Valentine dinner."

  • "My girlfriend and I went on Valentine's Day. Even though the menu was fixed, it had most of the popular dishes and all of their sushi menu. The drinks were strong and reasonably priced, and the food was delicious. Service was a little slow at times, but that was to be expected on V-Day since the place was pretty crowded. I would definitely recommend going there for a nice romantic dinner and I look forward to going back when the weather is warmer to experience the outdoor area."

  • "Upon arrival, we were told we couldn't valet because the lot was full of snow but there were people waiting for their cars to come from valet so there would have been a space but instead we had to walk. Once inside, two of the hostesses were talking to each other. They clearly saw me standing there but continued their conversation. A quick smile would have been better than feeling ignored. We had reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes before being seated despite people arriving after us that were seated before us (Hope they had earlier reservations and arrived late but didn't ask). The menu was limited which we didn't know prior. My meal was wrong at first but once they got it right the food was great! Will give them one more chance"

  • "I had an absolute wonderful time. The food was outstanding. The crab cakes were the best I've ever had and I've eaten a lot of crab cakes being a Marylander all my life. The crab cakes were filled with lump back fin crab meat and no fillers were added. Just pure lump crab meat. The wait staff was also very knowledgeable about the menu and the specials and did a super job taking care of my dinner party."

  • "We are regular customers of the Ches. Inn, visiting there at least every couple to few weeks and more often in the summer. The current exec. chef comes up with some great dishes and the food is always enjoyable. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We dined in the upstairs dining room this visit which was quite busy due to an annual customer appreciation function going on. Even so, the food and service were as good as always. The deck downstairs is also great, especially in the summer. One of our favorite restaurants!"

  • "The setting was elegant, view of the canal lovely. Weather was predicted to be icy so we had the restaurant to ourselves. The lunch menu had some delicious specials. The fig bruschetta was a culinary delight, and we both chose the seafoods burrito which was chock full of seafood. The dessert menu had some things I would love to try but was too full. Matthew, our server, was very attentive and kept our water glasses full, very good service and knowledgeable of the menu. I will be back."

  • "It's always good and we frequent this restaurant. We brought our 3 kids and they ate it all: crab pretzel, bacon cheeseburger, ravioli, and crab fries. I often get the sesame seated ahi tuna salad and it is always delicious. My husband had the rockfish po boy. I only wished we were there when the band played. We were too early."

  • "Service was very slow but courteous there were only three servers and one busser on the December 23rd Additionally, normally there is valet parking since the on site parking is limited. On this rainy night there as no valet, very disappointing for a family Christmas Eve-Eve dinner They are better during the summer with outdoor seating by the docks and for spring Sunday brunches (Easter or Mother's Day) but winter is not their best time of year"

  • "We had lunch just before Christmas at the Chesapeake Inn. Lovely view, nicely decorated for the season. The food preparation was very good,,,cream of crab soup was delicious and the pasta dishes we tried were very well prepared and seasoned. the only problem with the meal was the speed of the service. Too rushed. This was a holiday meal and we were obviously there for a leisurely lunch. We had just received our cocktails when the soup appeared; the soup was barely consumed before the entrée was in front of us. It was a "speed lunch" and not the relaxed occasion we had in mind. So, the good food was oddly unbalanced by the speed of its presentation."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "We loved this place! The food was amazing, it's been a long time since I've had a steak done that perfectly. We sat right on the water with a beautiful view of the boats and all the Christmas lights. Everyone kept raving about how good their meal was for the rest of the night! Highly recommended!"

  • "Very pleased with the choices available for someone with a shellfish allergy. Meals were outstanding and original. Only disappointment was that the lobster on my blackened lobster Caesar salad was a little tough. Flavor, however, was to die for! Also, cracks was one of the best I've had to date. Not one single shell! Waitress was perfect!!"

  • "Beautiful resturant for special occassions. The festival of lights adds holiday cheer to the Chesapeake City area. Booking the reservation only took seconds and when the number of my party changed I just entered the change and another conformation was received. I would use Open Table again. I must admit I did call the resturant a few hours before to verify the reservation. I was told immediately the reservation was confirmed."

  • "The food was good but a little pricey. Our service was a little slow and the server wasn't quite as attentive as we would have liked. But we has a table with a view of the water and boats decorated for Christmas and a group of good friends so overall it was a good experience."

  • "Arrived early and was immediately seated. Comfortable atmosphere with well trained staff. Food was excellent, both meats and sea food. Service was prompt and polite."

  • "We all got a Salad with an Enhancement. The price was reasonable and the enhancement completed the salads into a meal. The meal was fulfilling but we were not over full. We each ordered a different salad, good varied selection, and the greens were fresh and crisp. That was a perfect dinner option! The fresh baked bread was wonderfully warm and the Olive loaf delicious! I was happy that a Pumpkin ale was on tap, love the smaller breweries on tap! Our only complaint with the night was the knives provided did not cut the steak; the steaks were full of flavor and cooked appropriately. The molten chocolate cake was just the right size to split with another and was decedent! We will be back!"

Never have been disappointed and the service was impeccable and this time of year they were busy but not overly crowded. A favorite place anytime of year."

  • "It was our first time at Chesapeake Inn celebrating a birthday. The food was awesome! Had oysters on half shell and a turkey crêpe for appetizer. Main course of the diver scallops were the best I have ever had. We also had surf and turf on the table and mussels prepped non-spicy for my 7 year-old. The one and only complaint is that it took the server much too long to take our orders. She dropped our drinks off and disappeared before we could speak! Could have been there at least 20-25 mins less if it weren't for the initial waiting on the server to get our orders. Otherwise, the food came out at an acceptable pace..."

  • "A going away gift to our friend from Germany. He loved the Sushi ! The options for the naked fish blackened and my son the citrus mignonette. Both loved the flavors. I love the clams casino the best around and lump crab cakes to die for. I have been here in the summer, very fun place to be, keeps bringing me back."

  • "No disappointments here. Service was excellent, quick pleasant and never intrusive. We chose to eat light on this occasion. As an appetizer, we ordered the "Frisky Girl" from the Sushi menu and there was plenty there to share. We both ordered Salad entrées, Cobb Salad with Fried Oysters and Cobb Salad with Crab Cake, both being delicious. For dessert we split the Bread Pudding, which was not anything exceptional, it was nicely presented and was pleasant. Watching the tugs and barges go by on the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal and the occasional pleasure boat made for a pleasant and romantic evening as the sun went down. This establishment is a real party scene in the warmer months with an active marina and deck bar. Nice spot."
