    We were surprised how busy the Chesapeake Inn was at 11:30 on a Sunday. There were several large parties, and the restaurant was full and consequently quite noisy. In spite of this, we enjoyed our time meeting up with friends. Our server was great and provided excellent service at a table in the bar (which was our request when we saw how packed the main dining room was). The restaurant has been renovated since we were last there (pre Covid). It’s bright and tastefully decorated. We were a little disappointed to find that the menu had changed and did not include items that we had had in the past. But all in all, we were happy with our food.

    Our late reservation was our attempt to celebrate our anniversary before the weekend ended. It was a Sunday night and we had the restaurant all to ourselves. The ambience and service is always on par. For appetizers we had oysters and crab bisque, both were yummy. For the entree, I had the naked salmon and hubby had the sea bass, both came with green beans and mashed potatoes. It was a decent meal. To make the evening better, they could have lit our candle at our table and offered fresh bread.

    Nice dining room for a special family dinner event. My only negative was being close to others when there were other open tables. I felt like I had to squeeze close to the table in my chair because of the other guests behind me. I'm not a fan of sitting in a corner, which is where we sat. The bench seating/chair seating. Our food was tasty, warm and cooked to our liking. Our server was prompt. Our food was promptly made too. You get a nice view of the water and the boat docks.

    I wish I remembered our server’s name – he was delightful, accommodating and very friendly. Her meals (potstickers, frittata, and arugula salad with salmon) or absolutely delicious. We hadn’t seen each other in a long time so this was a delightful place to sit and catch up with no one pushing us out. Thanks for a nice day.

    We had a great dinner upstairs in the dining room, but there was a strong exhaust smell midway through our meal from a boat docking. It was surprising since the windows were closed upstairs.

    Very nice venue with a menu that has many options. One minor point - our entrees listed a “root vegetable” which turned out to be asparagus on all 3 plates? I dont think asparagus qualifies Our waitress was very helpful

    Everything was very good, but the menu was heavy on crab and lobster. If you aren’t a fan of shell fish, there weren’t many choices. I wanted a chicken sandwich ut the only one offered was Cajun spiced and Fried. My friends who love card lobters or Eder cab appetizers and lobster grilled cheese sandwich’s.

    Ok! I am ambivalent abut this review because I had high hopes for this restaurant based on the reviews, and I intend to return. The atmosphere was great, with a beautiful view of the adjacent marina. However, we very disappointed in the food quality and taste. I expected more from my seafood since we were at a "Seafood" restaurant. The calamari (rings) were poorly coated and the calamari tasted old and plastic. The Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes were more like Backfin (thinner meat; more like shredded). I am not a fan of Backfin crab cakes and do not order them. The halibut with the crab imperial came like a fish steak and tasted like pieces of fish mashed together (my best description) and seem like it was frozen not fresh (again, this is a seafood restaurant directly on the marina pier). The Grains & Greens salad was very good. The food had a decent taste but nothing to rave about. Service was excellent and the atmosphere/view was great. I was told there were several recent complaints about some of the dishes that used to be most popular. Perhaps they have a new chef or supplier(s); either way, the food needs an upgrade on quality. Again, I will try this restaurant again because it could really be a gem.
