The food was very good.

My wife, had the special jumbo diver scallops. Nice size but probably generous to call them jumbo.

My daughter, had the imperial crab stuff flounder. It was the best dish at the table.

I had the pan fried red snapper. The best part of the dish was the Pomodoro pasta.

We had a wonderful experience! So thankful I finally checked Open Table for restaurants that took reservations (only 3) because every nearby restaurant had at least a 90 minute wait every day. Food, ambiance and service were excellent; will definitely return!

We had an excellent time dinning there while on vacation. Very knowledgeable waiter who served in a timely manner. Food was excellent! Wish we had the restaurant back home!

Sorry, I started eating the crab cake before snapping the picture.

All of the food was fantastic. Delicious shrimp cocktail and calamari for apps. The scallops were amazing and the broiled seafood plate was great. The crab cake was phenomenal. The only complaint was that the kids shrimp only had 3 shrimp. It wasn't a big deal because I just gave my child some of my food. I will definitely be back!

Overall service and ambiance was very good and server was very accommodating! Food was very lacking and quite bland given the nature of the restaurant. Our first time here and not sure we would return for a main meal. Appetizers and drinks may be a better option. . . .

We came to Chesapeake’s on our first night in town and everything was absolutely exceptional. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly, the food was phenomenal, and the atmosphere was family-friendly but also classy. We were completely satisfied with all aspects of our experience!

Arrived before the crowds. Excellent service and food. They were out of a few things, but that is understandable during this time, shipping delays, etc. Will definitely be back.

My husband's sword fish was tough and overcooked. They prepared another piece of swordfish. It wasn't any better. They comped his meal... but he was still hungry. we had to get food for him elsewhere. A restaurant should not let a customer leave hungry. Doubt we will return.

We arrived and were seated right away. After ordering, food was brought to our table and promptly server promptly spilled hot butter all over my lap and seat. While there was an apology, there was no attempt to bring towels to help me clean up or any offer of discount on dinner or offer to reimburse for cleaning bill for my clothing. Food was okay but the hot butter bath and indifference of staff kind of ended the evening for us.

Never had great service like this place! Not only does the manager come by and check on you but also clear plates. The chef comes out and informed the staff right away about what's out. If I lived in the area this would be my go to place

We were looking for a nicer restaurant amongst the kitsch of downtown Gaitlinburg. We love seafood and TripAdvisor led me to the restaurant and Open Table. I was very happy to be able to make a reservation through the app as it’s very busy downtown at dinner time.
We had a nice booth along a creek. Adriana was our friendly, very good waitress. She was well versed in the oyster listing and menu. The wine selection was good. There were a wide selection of oysters from PEI down to Virginia. Fresh fish specials and a standard menu. Nice variety of sides also. We had a Coppola reserve Chardonnay. The Pink Moon oysters from PEI and Katamas from MA. I had the Black Bass with lemon beurre blanc and asparagus and my guy had scallops with red pepper pesto over smoked bacon cheddar grits. Very good. Very satisfied. Highly recommend!

I was a bit disappointed that the waiter didn't personally recommend anything, only what he sold the most of. Other than that, he was wonderful. The food was really good, the drinks, and the rest of the place were wonderful. 10/10 will recommend to others, and will go back myself.

We had a wonderful time. The food was amazing and the service impeccable. We had a reservation and were sat immediately in the back patio section next to the water. There was only one other table at the time and we loved it! The waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable about the entire menu: wine, oyster, and main. We will definitely return in the future and recommend anyone visiting to make time here.

We had stuffed mushrooms to start then split the king crab legs with steamed green beans and spicy spinach macaroni and cheese. It came with two claws weighing a half pound each and two sides. Perfect amount for us. Just wonderful.

Some of the best sea food we’ve had in a very long time. The seafood tower was incredible, and for the price cannot be beat! We were so full from the tower we didn’t have room to try their hot dishes! I would certainly return and dine here again!

Love the food, service great, location and interior great. Only complaint is that while the restaurant was at half capacity, other guests were seated right next to our booth instead of spaced one table apart.
