Very scenic spot, good food, we enjoyed a middle of the week lunch and spent over two hours doing it, just because we wanted to slowly eat and talk.

We sat near the bar. It was very crowed and the service was slow. Valet only parking added to the high cost of dinner.

Chesapeake Inn is a lovely waterfront restaurant with a delightful aquarium inside in the upstairs dining area. There is a nice variety of foods to accommodate various palates. We enjoyed everything from sushi to pasta, soup to popular wine favorites, all in an ambient setting. The service was stellar and professional, which makes Chesapeake Inn perfect for business dining as well as romantic dining. The only thing I would recommend to them is to add more seafood items to their menu, like steamed clams, crab cakes, lobster, and Jonah's crab claws. As far a I know, no other competitors offer these items and would certainly give them an edge.

Ambience is good. Food is nothing spectacular (my husband's fish order was overcooked). Our waiter who served us was great. If you want free parking you would have to park outside the restaurant's vicinity which is not bad just less than 5 min (and limited). I would recommend this place for the ambience but not for the food.

Casey was outstanding & our Server was very personal able, however the Service was slow for some reason. For example all the Tables around us received bread with their Drinks. We ended up asking for ours after our appetizers because it had been a while & our Entree hadn't arrive. Great Menu Selection & Wife's Food was outstanding mine was a little better than average.

I took my boyfriend and son to dinner for Valentine’s Day . My 1 1/2 year old got a burger .. came out dripping in blood . (Asked for well done ) boyfriend received all his food ( Sushi and crab bisque ) before we were able to eat . Then my steak came out as well not even cooked . Asked for
Medium we got dripping blood and charred ... also took an hour to receive .. they weren’t even busy . Our waitress also left and barely ever came back ... another server had helped us . She did fix the burger but never received the fries until we were ready to leave .. worse and last time coming . Word of advice ... look for a better cook !

Brought my wife here for early Valentines Day dinner. We’ve dined here many times and Chesapeake Inn is one of our favorite local restaurants. Started with French Onion soup and Crab Bisque - both soups were hot, fresh and very tasty. The bread was excellent with crisp crust and soft center. Oysters Chesapeake were loaded with lump crab, and the oysters were meaty and fresh. Halibut and Salmon entrees were perfectly cooked, the fishes were fresh and the seasonings were delicious. The chef knows how to prepare seafood - we’ve never been disappointed by his talent and creativity. The only criticism is the soups, oysters and salad all came at once. Better pacing of food service would’ve made this visit perfect. We shared creme brûlée for dessert - custard was scrumptious and the crunchy sugar topping was perfect. We had a great meal and will definitely be making many return visits!

It was surprisingly dead on a Thursday evening but that gave us a window seat to overlook the bay. Food was phenomenal and our waitress was on point. Definitely going back.
