    We went to Chesapeake Inn to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The food was amazing the atmosphere was great and the service was good. We will definitely go back again. It would have been nice if they could have offered up something special for our Anniversary like a complimentary drink or dessert. But overall an amazing place to Dine and celebrate any special occasion.

    Food was very good. Service was subpar. We sat in the bar area, the bartender never wrote our orders down, and our order was wrong twice. This was on Sunday for brunch. The food runner was the hero that day, he was great. The bartender who waited on us, not so much.

    Very nice restaurant. The restaurant itself it clean and the staff are also nice. It sits right on the water and if you’re lucky enough to snag a seat by the window you have a really good view of the nighttime sky in Chesapeake City. After dinner they encourage you to go downstairs to the bar where they have live music and all around good vibes. Food was prepared in a timely fashion and the presentation was nice. I didn’t feel rushed at all or get the feeling of being herded in and out like cattle. Everything about this place was Aces in my book. I had the Rockfish with risotto and my girlfriend had the “Perfect 10” which is a filet mignon and crab cake with root veggies and mashed potatoes. Flavor, temperature, and portions were perfect. I left feeling satiated and satisfied. Highly recommend the peanut butter explosion dessert which is a chocolate cake infused with peanut butter mousse served with vanilla ice cream and whipped crème. Will definitely return to check out the deck or brunch as well.

    My best friend and I enjoyed a lovely night at the Chesapeake Inn. Salmon (grilled) was delicious resting on top of the kale salad. Crab bisque also yummy. Capuccino was cold and served in a hot chocolate glass. Wine list mediocre. Otherwise, highly recommend and get a seat near the window!

We had patronized the Chesapeake Inn once previously, and we will certainly return in the future. Highly recommended and kudos!

    We ate in the dining room on a Wednesday evening in February. On that evening, many bottles of wine were half price. My husband had the prime rib special, 12 oz., including salad, potatoes and vegetables for $25. It was a beautiful cut of meat prepared just as ordered. I had the salmon Chesapeake, topped with crab meat and lobster sauce. 5-star entree! Excellent service from our waitress. The food and service are consistently top-notch!

    Our server was extremely friendly and realized we were not in a hurry and adapted immediately. We didn't have to order our meal until after the appetizer was delivered, water was refilled as needed without asking. The food was fabulous! The calamari appetizer had just the right amount of sauce was flash fried without breading and the pickled seaweed salad was a bright complement. Don't go expecting small lunch portions, my husband couldn't finish the seafood pasta dish which was loaded with sea scallops, shrimp and crab. The crab bisque not only had crab in it but was garnished with a lump of crabmeat.

    Clams casino were awful. Undercooked and with a weird topping unlike any we've had in decades. Halibut was overcooked. For $30 plus an a carte topping, we should have sent it back. Our fourth or fifth visit, first for our three friends. Especially disappointing for a seafood restaurant on the C&D Canal.

    Christmas Eve brunch. Beautiful layout and ambiance. Busy as you might expect but great. A little pricey but again, Christmas Eve brunch. Don't go to save money. By the way, this place has the best bartender anywhere. Go to the bar for the best service anywhere.
