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.

    Chesapeakes has become one of my favorite places to eat. Arrived and checked in and as always very nice. Got seated and the waiter was fantastic and very helpful. Ordered off the special menu the Filet and Lobster and food was wonderful. We all had different items and everything was cooked and prepared excellent. All around this visit was a perfect trip. 10 out 10. Can’t wait to return.

    One of the most flavorless meals I've ever eaten, or at least partially ate. I stopped after 4 bites. Great texture though; pure genius to add sand to the oysters so I didn't have to unjustly eat a soft, smooth mollusk. And the joy at not having to hear my wife speak. Covering every square inch with hard surfaces was brilliant. I so enjoyed listening to nothing but dozens of conversations at other tables.

    Service was very poor. Food served cold after a long wait. While all dirty dishes remained on the table he set check down and stood over us and waited for payment. He did not attempt to clear a dish while waiting, just stood there. Training needed for waitstaff.

    Birthday with friend. Our server seemed irritated that we we were talking and wasn’t ready to order. Throughout the evening she was not attentive and was especially irritated that my friend return her meal as she forgot to say no sesame seeds on her entree - she is allergic. We apologize but they didn’t seem to do the job. Ask for additional rolls while we wait and she brought them but rolled her eyes and took forever to get our check. I still tipped bare minimum, which if she would have been understanding and provided better service it would have been a $40 tip versus $15 Still love the food and will return but would ask for another server/area if she happens to be the server.

    A busy Saturday evening, but everything went extremely well with our dining experience. Staff was very friendly and helpful, food was excellent, key lime pie was perfect, and we were entertained by several small boys enjoying the live lobster tank near our table! Our server did an excellent job of meeting our needs without being obtrusive. Great evening!

    Nice place in a commercial area of auto dealers and decorated as an upscale fish shack with fish tanks, fake mounted marlin, etc. Mostly an after work bar crowd on Friday evening. The menu is expanded by offerings of same fishes prepared different ways. Large portions but shrimp was over cooked and other fish was over salted. Friendly service

    Our server was fantastic but the hostesses and bar service were slow. We had a 7:15 reservation but despite everyone being their at 7, we were called to sit after 7:20. It seemed like at one point the bar was overwhelmed given how long it took our first round to come out.

    Food as always was excellent. Wife's scallops were amazing. I had the haddock which was amazing. Now, our server, Cliff, was not so good. Seemed strung out, talked too fast, dropping things. Maybe a bad day for him but probably should not have been working that night.
