Thursday afternoon, about 1:30 late lunch, with few people in the restaurant. We had an enjoyable lunch of oysters (split), salad, stuffed tomato w/crab, scrod, and bottle of Ferrari-Carano. The food was very good, and our server, Matt, did a great job. The interior is...More

If you’re looking for scrumptious crab cakes; fresh fish with wonderful sauces; or fried (and less fattening versions) fish, shrimp, or oyster platters, you’ll love Chesapeake’s! Salads, soups, and sides are excellent, too. They’re well known for their spinach Maria and cheddar cheese salad dressing...More

The seafood here is delicious. The prices are on the higher end but this is a up-scale restaurant. I usually get the swordfish and it is always fresh tasting and seasoned perfectly. Since I usually get one thing, I am not sure how the rest...More
