Elaine was amazing! As always, food was superb. The lobster grilled cheese definitely did not skimp on the lobster and was so filling. Will definitely be back for brunch!

Went with a party of six--three couples. My husband and I shared several different sushi rolls and an order of oysters. The sushi was good--very interesting flavor/ingredient combinations. The oysters were mediocre at best--very little flavor and rather small. The rest of our party ordered entrees and everyone seemed to like their food. Two couples ordered dessert, which they also liked. Cocktails were good. Service was spotty. We are looking forward to going back in the summertime so we can enjoy to outdoor setting.

Our server was excellent. Perhaps a bit more education needed for guests with gluten sensitivity. All in all, nice experience.

Scheduled a Valentines dinner. Everything was top notch. Service was excellent. Food was very good and met expectations. Ambiance was low key with a very nice romantic music playlist in the background as we conversed and dined.

Great food but definitely overpriced. Got there at 3 pm for Sunday Valentine's Day dinner. Dinner opened at 2pm but primary special was already sold out in just one hour.

Our server was great and we were checked on often and the ambiance was quiet and nice. Our food for the most part was wonderful and delicious for everyone at the table from the apps to the main course, however the lobster (which was part of the most expensive meal purchased at our table) was a big let down. It had ZERO flavor and was over cooked so very dry & gamey tasting, I didn’t eat the rest of it after one bite. We’ve dined her before and will again, but was slightly disappointed this visit.

Matt was a great waiter - he was attentive but left us alone to catch up, which was the purpose of our being there. Crab bisque was fabulous and the black/blue burger yummy

So it was good to get out and have a good meal. I had fish and my wife the crab cakes
and both were very good with nice sides. Service was also good.

Food is always delicious! I have been hesitant to go out as Covid numbers rise, however Chesapeake Inn had done a great job of spacing tables out, and everything was clean. It was great to get out to dinner like a normal person and have a wonderful meal!

My husband and I had dinner here on New Year's Eve which was also our wedding anniversary. We made a reservation after hearing how great the food is. You did not disappoint! Our server was pleasant and gave excellent recommendations. (I forget her name). We sat our in the covered deck area which was beautiful. We had drinks, crab bisque soup, crab ravioli, and seafood penne. Everything was amazing! We will be back:) We can't wait to dine in the warmer weather above the water!

Excellent choice for a date night or special occasion. they have redesigned the dining room to the mitigation guidelines for the Pandemic.
The food is consistently excellent and provides very good value for the cost. The ambiance and view of the Marina Harbor and canal is hard to beat.
