Wonderful meal. Wait-staff very attentive. Delightful surrounding's.
Ambience is nice but overpriced food and doesn’t taste that good
Everything about dining out is different with COVID-19. Wait help tends not be as attentive. The Tides uses this room for three meals a day so the ambiance beyond the great view is nothing special. We enjoyed the fried oysters app, rock fish catch of the day and beef carpaccio. The carpaccio seemed to be more about all the Arugula piled on top.
Great wine list.
Small portions high prices, ie three pan seared scallops for $38. You get the idea. If you like garlic, they use lot’s of it. Tomato and burrata salad had one small piece of mozzarella cheese and over ripe small heirlooms. My oysters on the half shell had been shucked much earlier and were refrigerator dried out. They also added gratuity for a party of two. I don’t mind paying for a good quality meal, but this was not it. Sorry.
The food and service were wonderful ! The crab cake sandwich is the best i have ever eaten.
There aren't that many dining options in the area so the Chesapeake ought to be the top choice for a nice dinner. It was certainly a rewarding change from the disastrous meal we had at another local eatery the previous evening. There are sufficient options on the menu to satisfy most people. The food was excellent & nicely presented. All the servers were friendly & helpful, but the lack of fine restaurant experience on the part of some of them was evident (while the lack of a deep pool of experienced wait staff in this area is understandable, management could do a better job of training). They were all quite attentive however. Sufficient COVID precautions were in place and most diners wore masks when not at a table eating. Overall, this was a very good dinner & we recommend it as the place to go when in the area.
We went for our anniversary and the tenderloin was absolutely divine!
Tides Inn was sold out for the weekend, but we were glad to stay close by and join for a dinner
We enjoyed our dinner with a two month old, and appreciated how accommodating all of the staff were. The pianist was a nice touch!
Lisa was great!
Fantastic all the way around. Handling COVID precautions and excellent service with ease. A great setting that the food matches. The rice cake bed for the seared Tuna (catch of the day) was a triumph. The talented chef came out to our table to thank us personally for the compliments we sent via the wait staff. A birthday evening to remember. Thank you Tides Inn team.
It was good
Beautiful scenery and ambience. Menu is limited and pricey. Steak was well worth it. The music was too far away from the diners, which would have made it almost perfect.
Overall good food, friendly service and attentive staff. Only complaint is add on cost for salmon in entree that was not disclosed on the menu pricing.
They set up a table isolated at the window for a great water view. Scallops, calamari and octopus were perfectly prepared
Perfect place to celebrate
An absolute MUST! LOVED the restaurant and LOVED the food! Absolutely delicious and a gorgeous presentation. Our server, Martha, was fantastic and make the entire experience amazing! Would highly recommend!
Some really wonderful new changes at the Chesapeake. We had a really fabulous dinner on the terrace. An exceptionally talented chef and a very service oriented staff that raises the experience. Bravo!
Excellent food. Excellent service. Wonderful menu and wine list.
Expensive, poor service food pretty good but definitely not worth the price. Dinner shouldn't take 2.5 hours with most of it waiting.
Wonderful get away with my husband during this difficult pandemic summer! The dining experience was amazing & food was delicious!
Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear you and your husband enjoyed your experience! Shawna Fitzgerald Director of Outlets
Overall the food was good. A few menu items looked creative but many looked fairly standard, if not unoriginal. I would have preferred more unique dishes to match the beautiful location.
The service was just OK. For example, we ordered an expensive bottle of wine and were eager to start drinking it, but we waited close to 15 minutes to receive it. In fact, we received our first appetizer before receiving the wine, which is a big pet peeve of mine. If I order a drink to go with the meal then I want to have received the drink by the time the food arrives.
David, I am very sorry to hear we missed the mark during your visit. Thank you kindly for your feedback, we will use it to improve our operations. We hope to see you again. Sincerely, Shawna Fitzgerald Director of Outlets

RochelleT, We appreciate your candid review, thank you for celebrating a very special occasion with us! We hope to see you again very soon! Shawna Fitzgerald Director of Outlets
Had the Sesame-crusted Spicy Tuna special, fried green tomatoes and a corn veloute'.
This was the best meal I have eaten in 2020, and was on par with the meal I enjoyed Inn at Little Washington back in 2013.
WillS, Thank you so much for your five star review! I will give your compliments to our Executive Chef, Alex Pasco. We will be rolling out our fall menu next month and hope to see you then! Shawna Fitzgerald Director of Outlets
Thank you for celebrating your Anniversary with us! We hope to see you again soon. Shawna Fitzgerald Director of Food and Beverage Outlets
