Seafood
Chesapeake’s West derives much of its authentic Eastern Shore qualities from décor that features genuine nautical antiques and artifacts. Pairing this cozy, seaside ambiance with welcoming service and fresh ingredients has made it the perfect spot for creating memorable moments.

As part of the Copper Cellar Family of Restaurants, we offer fresh seafood that’s sourced daily, local, handcrafted microbrews, an extensive wine list and prime-graded beef. We are known for live Maine lobster, Maryland Crab cakes, a variety of fresh fish, and assorted oyster selection.

Chesapeake’s features a raw bar, Sunday brunch, and happy hour in the bar/lounge. Full menus — including gluten free options are available and can be enjoyed on our patio. Free onsite parking and a courtesy shuttle is available for local hotels.

Whether you come for the food, the drinks, or the atmosphere, you’re in for an unforgettable experience.

Buffet only on Easter, Mother's & Father's Days, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Didn't find out until we were seated that it was a buffet. We usually don't go for buffets but this was very good. The cod, prime rib and pork loin were outstanding and the sides were excellent. Salads and dessert were also very good.

    We went on Father's Day and on holiday's they have a buffet. It had just about anything you could want - oysters on the half-shell, shrimp, smoked trout, fried shrimp and fish as well as prime rib, pork tenderloin and all the sides. Dessert was included too. Our server was great and took good care of us, taking us to the buffet and showing us where everything was as it was quite large. Highly recommend you always make a reservation, even on non-holiday's, as they tend to be quite busy at this location.

    Went for Fathers Day. When I made the reservation thru OpenTable, it did not mention that the regular menu was not available. Only option was buffet which was obscenely overpriced green beans, mac n cheese, cheese squares and a few fried fish choices. I’ve had better breakfast at an Embassy Suites. So disappointing

    Ordered whole lobster and the lady getting the meat out really struggle. Took a while and it was no longer warm, nor was the butter. Probably not the place to order a lobster. Wife’s red snapper was very good.

    I thought the food and the service were very good. However, I also thought the prices were a little too high. But, I know that inflation is causing all restaurants to probably raise their prices.

    Good experience except the hard rock music is out of touch with the atmosphere and clientele. I would highly recommend they consider changing to a more relaxing musical choice. Also, since there is really no sound proofing in their open restaurant, the music ( especially the type) is very intrusive and not as a pleasant background noise. Just my opinion.

    Good food, nice atmosphere, one waiter was kind enough to take photos of our group. Our main waiter could use some finesse lessons—she announced the price of our entire meal which I didn’t want to advertise in front of our guests! Otherwise, we enjoyed ourselves. Good Bloody Mary bar.
