Pleasantly surprised ! The inn did a beautiful renovation on the interior restaurant. A contemporary feel of water and flair. Food was very good and wait staff pleasant and professional. Music on the newly decorated bar area was fabulous. We’ll be back !

We had the tuna poke and it was bitter. We both had GI issues afterward. Service was slightly off and waitress disappeared from time to time. Tim the manager seemed like someone who didn’t really want to hear your complaints. Sadly we won’t be back for a long time if ever.

Have been there before and always liked the place. But this time was the best ever. The service, from the time we opened the door until getting the car from the Valet was perfect. The view is always great. The food: the menu was "fun", it was hard to choose a dish. and the execution was perfect.

The new decor upstairs is done very well. Overall though I felt short changed and would opt to eat elsewhere. The filet lacked flavor and the lobster tail was over done. To spend that kind of money and the meal lacked flavor was disappointing. We were also the only table to lack flowers, which for a valentines meal was disheartening. The waiter was super nice and the servers were all attentive.

I write this review with a heavy heart because the Chesapeake Inn has been a special place for me and my wife for many many years! We have recommended to others, taken family and friends, had our anniversaries and a number of Valentine Days.....

My wife and I have been coming to the Chesapeake Inn for at least 20 year, however this year was the worse experience we ever had there. Starting with the atmosphere it went downhill from there. The over size ballroom was cold and uninviting, (not temp cold) the tables were lined up like a hall and the service was on the low end of service at best. Our waiter appeared once to take our order and checked on us 20 min later. As for the food, we should have ordered from the bar downstairs. The food was not worth the money if it was free. At least the bread was warm. We each had steak (medium) while they came out as ordered the meat itself was horrible. My wife's crab cake was all filling and you would be hard pressed to consider it a crab cake (because you would need crab for that) not to mention the seasoning.

My wife had to ask for a salt shaker from three different individuals before one was delivered to our table. Someone who appeared to be the manger was walking around asking folks if/how they were enjoying their meal (one positive) but when he approached our table, he not only startled my wife but then placed his hand awkwardly on her shoulder.

After sitting waiting for our waiter to appear or at least see me waving to get his attention, our check was delivered by a very nice young lady (who was not our waiter) but took care of us nonetheless! (she should have received the tip)

We are boaters and have been stopping by the outside bar for even longer and will probably continue to do so...... But as for dinner, unless something changes we will be looking for a new spot.

This was our first visit in a long time, end it will probably be our last. The waiter completely ruined our experience with his sarcasm and snarky comments. Despite ordering appetizers, two bottles of wine, and four dinners… Apparently he was not pleased that I ordered a “house salad with grilled salmon” as my meal. He publicly shamed me and commented that it was a “Weight watchers” meal. I was embarrassed and it definitely is not a great memory of our visit.

Brunch was outstanding at the Chesapeake Inn Restaurant! Their team is excellent -Everyone makes you feel like family. The restaurant was recently given a facelift and is so fresh and nautical looking. The chairs were very comfortable. The view from our table was absolutely beautiful. The food was even more delicious than it looked in pictures. We already made plans to return!! Very highly reccomend!!

We reserved a table for the dining room and were seated on the terrace. I went back to the hostess and shared my concerns and was basically told “too bad”. It felt like we were eating dinner in a tent while sitting at a picnic table, as the walls were made of plastic and the tables were outdoor furniture. At one point a staff member brought some people out to the terrace to have drinks while waiting on their table so now our dining experience turned into happy hour at the bar. The manger did address this as I immediately brought it to his attention. The food was good but I doubt we will ever go back there.
