The Menu at Chesapeake’s Seafood & Raw Bar

The seafood at Chesapeake’s is fresh and sourced daily, and you’ll also find USDA choice and prime-graded beef on the menu. If you’re heading to Chesapeake’s for brunch, you’ll find everything from pancakes and waffles to full seafood entrees. For any meal, the seafood tower from the seafood bar is a favorite, piled with lobster tails, cocktail shrimp, mussels, crab, and oysters on the half shell.
For dinner, start your meal with an order of crab stuffed mushrooms or a wedge salad to share. Seafood entrees include everything from the fried seafood platter where you can try a little bit of everything, to seafood with a southern flair, such as the shrimp and grits. Complete your dish with over a dozen side options. It’s worth saving room for dessert if you can choose between the key lime pie or homemade cheesecake.
