Disappointed, again….and also Saddened:I really try to be fair and went back a Third time after being disappointed before. It’s not what it used to... be back in the 90’s when it was Great and a bunch of us would go monthly. Now, it’s Mediocre, over-priced, the only show in town, and….They Know It.1. Their “Middleneck clams” are teeny tiny, this term is misleading, and more like “Sub-Little neck”, when you refer to Barneget Light’s and Fulton Street’s web sites. They are maybe 1 inch in size and with the faintest taste, and definitely not 2 to 2/12 inches, my preferred size and having taste. If you like them small, have at it.Shellfish information-Hard ClamsYour Essential Guide to Clams | What Are Clams? - Types of Clams2. It’s supposed to be “CLAM Chowder” with a little bit of bacon, and not the opposite. Notice the order of their ingredients on the menu, which is correct.3. “Sea” Scallops and size? Did they come from the “Little Sea” or were they “Flattened Sea Scallops” that were cross-cut in half to give you more pieces?Ending with a positive note, their Iceberg Wedge salad, was a Wedge Salad.For $85+, I’m sorry to say Chesapeake Tavern, that I think we are done visiting you. You have truly forgotten your roots where you started from, and WE are saddened.read more

Had dinner here last night and really wanted to like it. All the employees were so nice and service was great. My Honey Julep drink was delicious.... But the food was a let down. At this price point, The seafood should be fresh and perfect, the flavors unique and exceptional and it should feature local farm to table. I got the arugula salad (very good) and the shrimp and artichoke penne special. The shrimp was very overcooked and the red sauce was nothing special. My husband got the fish and chips and felt there was way too much breading and not enough fish. Others in our group got the cod and while fresh tasting it was bland. Maybe we didn’t order the right dishes but we left feeling somewhat disappointed.read more

My family had a great birthday dinner here! All of the seafood dishes we had were excellent. There was a small mix-up where our appetizer was... delivered to the wrong table and a different one was given to us- and the waitress said she let the other table keep the app but took ours away. We were disappointed to learn that the other table got a free app and we didn’t, plus we had to wait longer. Despite this I would still highly recommend, just maybe not during their busiest hours. I especially recommend the shrimp and scallop risotto, and s’mores old fashioned cocktail!read more

Chesapeake tavern has the freshest seafood around. Their oysters are always delicious and so is everything else. They have a perfectly sized menu so... you never feel overwhelmed by the choices and they’re always updating their menu. Everyone who works there is super friendly and extremely attentive. We go there multiple times every month and have never had a bad experience.read more
