Five of us had a very pleasant birthday lunch here for my wife. Everyone enjoyed their meal - a crabcake sandwich, a club sandwich, vegan platter, a wrap and sturgeon Sicilian style; three crab bisque's and an onion soup. Outstanding coffee (and I'm a home roaster, so used to good coffee). Service was attentive without being intrusive. It was a quiet Tuesday, so no problems with noise or crowds.

The decor and building just didn’t seem true to the area and since we were not from the area we were looking for a place that was more DE, oyster, crab, duck fare. This was really confusing -
Service was ok, food ok - not memorable

We made a reservation on Open Table. We were seated as soon as we got there and the waiter was very friendly and helpful with our menu questions. The food was really good and you can't beat the view.

Took out of town co-worker on Tuesday, a special Lobster night. The Lobster Chesapeake was delicious. Restaurant was not crowded, so it was unusually long wait to order and request water refill versus prior experiences here.

Overall we were pleased with our dinner. The service was very good. The only complaint was that my tuna arrived cold. I do understand the searing the tuna may be the reason.

We were given a window table overlooking the marina which was great. There were so many interesting items on the menu that it was a hard decision on what to select. Though our 2 selections of a fish and an Italian dish were both great meals.

The service was very good. My husband ordered the duck and said it as just okay. He would have preferred it to be crispier. I had ordered the pork chop which came out burned on one side and and was dry. I would not recommend either of these dishes.

Another GREAT night at the bar with Tommy and Pam. They have always taken care of my family as if they were our family. Food variety is incredible from sushi to steak, it can't be beat. The craft beer on tap is right up my alley. Multiple selections and always served very cold. This place can't be beat and it's right on the water.

Our visit exceeded our expectations. It was my fiance and I second date in over 5 years. We were finally able to get a babysitter Sat night and we knew exactly where we wanted to go. Everyone was extremely friendly, excellent food and service (unfortunately do not recall his name). Beautiful atmosphere. We are highly considering having our wedding here. Such a hidden gem! I have already recommended Chesapeake Inn to a handful of friends. Thanks to all for a wonderful night. We will definitely be returning!

Chesapeake Inn never disappoints! The food is always excellent, the service attentive and professional. We have eaten here numrous times, both inside dining and the outdoor deck in the warmer months. Our son says the sushi is awesome and well-priced. Reservations are not always bneeded, but the venue is on Open Table, if you use that app.

Outstanding food with good selection of appetizers, salads, soups, and entrees. We did not have dessert, so I cannot comment on that aspect. We were there on a Monday evening, so it was a quiet environment. Quite a variety of seafood as well as land based protein choices. The restaurant is now serving sushi, which I believe is a fairly recent addition. Full selection of wines, beer, and mixed drinks. Our waitress was very attentive and efficient without being intrusive. We enjoyed the view from the upstairs dining area. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food properly served in a pleasant environment.

Requested a window table 24 hours in advance for 7 for my dad's 80th birthday. We had the first reservation for that night and disappointed they did not give us the center window to enjoy better views on both sides of the table especially given the amount of money we spent. The table centered at the window seated only 4.

Nice view of the canal and bridge.

We arrived for late lunch and hopefully the place was quite and relax and service was unhurried (which was fine for us) but seems that as long as the dinning room start to get busier, might be slow.

Crab cake and Sword fish cajun blackend were delicious. We enjoyed our lunch.

Been goign here for years, but usually stay down on The Deck. Decided to finally try the upstairs dining room for a little bit finer dining. Food was excellent. Had a fresh caught fish done in the style of my choice. All the side dishes and entrees were exceptionally prepared. Crab bisque is to die for.

Our server, Dustin, was fantastic. He claimed to be "the new guy" (only there since May), but he was more like a seasoned pro. He did something usually reserved for high-end restaurants, turning our dinner into a dining experience. Kudos to him. Even informed us that due to our anniversary we were entitled to a champagne toast. We would have never known.

The waterfront dining, coupled with the exceptional cuisine, make this a must-do in the MD-DE area.
