Had the best clam steamers to date and they were substantial in size and within the best in terms of quality and expectation and within the expected size. Not sure what previous reviewers are anticipating with their middle neck clams

The food, atmosphere, and service here are excellent. Whether you want a lobster roll, oysters, steak, pork, or a salad they have you covered. I'll definitely be back, especially for another glass of their peanut butter whiskey.

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!

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.

Enjoyed a fabulous brunch today at Chesapeake Tavern. We are regulars at this restaurant because the food is delicious and the service from managers to servers is fantastic. This was our first time having brunch and we will definitely return. We had crab Florentine and Chicken and Waffles. The sauce on the Crab Florentine was amazing and the eggs cooked to perfection with a nice portion of crab meat. The waffle was light and fluffy and chicken strips were juicy inside and perfectly crispy outside and the smokey bacon-brown sugar-coffee-maple syrup was absolutely incredible! Also, highly recommend the lobster roll!!

The meal was superb, dish after dish. The service was courteously, kind, friendly and extremely attentive. These young servers were well mannered. Very good at their jobs.The staff in general was upbeat and very friendly. We had 2 GMs come and speak to us even.The atmosphere is cozy in a remodeled home setting. Not too noisy.Immediately being sat, water was offered without asking. They ask you if you want the bread - say yes.Starting with the fried calamari, it was crispy and crunchy. The chipotle sauce was the best and different for dipping. Also included a mango dip, however the chipotle was the favorite offering.Dinner was the lobster tail with mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts sautéed. It was so tasty, I would order second helpings in a moment. Reasonably priced for all that at $35. Their veggies are also locally sourced from nearby farms.Dessert was the apple crisp, which was just comfort, dessert, food. Not overwhelmingly sweet, scrumptious in nature.The champagne/cranberry cocktail for the holidays was sweet tasting, yet in a good way.I liked it so much that I will return and even join their member rewards program.

Had lunch at the bar. New Sunday Brunch menu. Food always delicious. I had some standards, fried calamari and a lobster roll. Calamari didn't even need the two dipping sauces it was so perfect, and the lobster roll was bite after bite of delicious lobster chunks. Try Oyster night on Mondays, I hear it's great.

I have the shrimp cocktail. I was surprised how fresh the seafood was, considering I've lived at the beach for 25 years and just recently moved to North Jersey. Our waitress had told us she was new but she didn't wonderful job and she was very friendly. And the service was wonderful. My friends and I are going back on Saturday to try something else
