The east side of town's premiere restaurant. Good for both seafood and chicken. Rooms for more private dining for ten or twenty guest parties. Very spacious, so rarely a wait to be seated.

Had a small family gathering(6)before the holidays! Always a great place for a steak or seafood! Early Bird specials! $$$ easy on the wallet with the specials. Historical landmark!

I came in on a week night after a long day of travel. Even though it was Monday, this place was packed. So I went to the bar for a beverage, then after waiting decided to dine there. I had the bourbon grilled salmon with rice and scalloped potatos. Great meal and well worth the 40 minute wait.

Although not being seated until 30 minutes after reservation time the food was good. Shrimp and sirloin were very good. The 5oz lobster tail was a bit tough. Service by waitress was outstanding.

I've always had great service and great food here! Their lunch buffet is a great value for what you pay! I love seafood but they have everything else as well. Always get the vibe of a more 'older' crowed (elderly) but it's a great atmosphere.

I've eaten here several times and have always thought the quality of food was good given the very reasonable food and drink prices. Last night I had the fried clams and about an hour and a half later became violently sick in my hotel room. After the episode was over, I felt fine, so it was definitely my dinner. I... More

This place will s a little worn, but clearly a favorite with the locals. The staff were very friendly and the service was great and attentive. I had the shrimp de Jonghe. The flavor was good, but was over cooked . Clearly, the restaurant had regulars and they ordered their favorites, so I may have had an isolated over cooked... More

I really like going to this place. They have amazing seafood. I always get the crab legs and lobster tail and it is always cooked perfectly. It isn't to expensive. The only thing I didn't like was that their menu online has different items than at the restaurant and different prices so I wasn't too happy about that, but everything... More

We went for lunch and were a little afraid of what the price might be because it looked a little upscale. Linen table cloths, very professional looking wait staff, nice building... but the price was very good. I don't remember exactly, but I know it was less than $20 for the both of us to have the lunch buffet. There... More

While the Chesapeake Seafood House is always a great place for lunch or dinner and I was there for dinner with friends, it is the place we usually select for special gatherings. Birthday parties, anniversaries and gatherings of family are celebrated at the Chesapeake. The setting is very nice. The building is interesting. This is the place we go for... More
