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.

The view and the service were great. The food was bland and the furnishings are dated, but we still had a nice time...and will give it another try in the future.

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!

EXCELLENT service, food, and restriction-compliant restaurant. I noticed the owner went above and beyond the compliance rules to make his restaurant comfortable for patrons!

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.

Had a lovely a delicious meal with a great view of the water! Our waitress Diana was wonderful and all of the staff members we encountered were so nice and pleasant. The restaurant was not very crowded, sadly due to covid, but they did a great job with having diners spaced out, wearing masks, cleaning up, etc.

It was disappointing. They were out of an appetizer we wanted, we weren't offered bread and the food was just okay. Service was okay but they left dishes on the table instead of removing them when we were done. Favorite menu items from previous visits were no longer available.

During COVID, we have only been to ONE indoor-seating restaurant for fear of getting sick. The Chesapeake Inn Restaurant assured us we could be safe while eating. We indeed felt safe and enjoyed a lovely meal with a lovely server (Kacie). It was worth it and we will return when we visit Chesapeake City again.

Excellent dinner: however, I am a disabled Vietnam Veteran and walking up and down the high steps w/o a handrail was difficult - would be beneficial to all to see these modernized. Understand there is an elevator. Nevertheless, we will return.
