We had a great time, mostly due to the staff (helpful/friendly dock hands) and location. It's extremely walkable to everywhere in the small, historic downtown area. Floating docks are always a plus too. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because of the bathroom facilities. Showering with a table of diners right outside the door is really strange, and probably stranger for them than us!

One of our favorite places on the Bay. Great dock staff, great service for food and drink right to your boat., outstanding restaurant upstairs with great Tiku Hut and bar food downstairs.

Nice marina Good restaurant

Great location, Very pretty marina even if it's a little restrictive about washing boats. And an extremely helpful dockmaster who works afternoons into the evenings keeping all the transient vs Dock-In-Dine slips occupied.

Excellent staff. This place is busy, so reserve early.

Clem was great help getting us in. Food tasty at restaurant. Great view of canal, passing ships. We’ll be back.

Awesome staff and dock guys, they know how to take care of you there, and the entertainment and amenities where great, love this place.

Fun spot! The marina staff are very nice and helpful. Great floating docks. The food at the restaurant was very good and the servers were top shelf! At the present moment, we're sitting The Deck outside bar having lunch. The menu has great variety, staff is excellent, and there are a ton of tv's so you can watch whatever sports event you want. We will definitely come back!

Best place on the Chesapeake Bay!!!

by abjohnsonjr on Jul 20, 2020
Dockhands were quick to move to help and Waitresses were attentive. Excellent experience over all.

by dfitzgerald on Jul 19, 2020
Very satisfied, great service, will be back soon

by baylady57 on Jul 06, 2020
Friendly, courteous staff. Clean, well maintained. Easy walk to historic district.

by soulmates322 on Jul 05, 2020
Wonderful place to stay!! Highly reccommended...

by clindbloom0051 on Jul 01, 2020
Very competent dock hand; attentive. The presence of the obnoxious cigarette boats spoil the peace and tranquility. Can’t give 5 stars for that reason.

by lcurr33908 on Jun 29, 2020
Horrible! We got there before noon and we’re put on the most popular dock,meaning loads of younger people, all drinking,wearingnext to nothing, no social distancing, and loud. We put up with this until 7pm when the rap music started blasting, then asked to be moved. Bathrooms are awful,located right in the heart of the outside dining area, so you have to ask people to move to access them.

Love the dockside service!

by ahoy on Oct 07, 2019
Always fun and dock hands are skilled and helpful.

by saylor on Oct 01, 2019
Marina staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Chesapeake City is a charming historic village with great restaurant choices. Although our stay was mid-week and nearly off season-- we could see that the marina and restaurants at the Inn are a 'happening' spot. The Tiki Bar had lively music playing all afternoon and evening-- but not too loud.

by kkeelty on Oct 01, 2019
We particularly liked the powerwashing at the Tiki Bar at 7:AM accompanied by the loud cursing of the operator. We also liked the table set up blocking the ramp from the dock. Our favorite was the absence of anyone from the marina until noon. We arrived early around 10:30. Then we had to move because a 50’ needed our slip. We are 47’ LOA. The best was the dochand who called the lines “ropes”!

by wwassmer on Sep 29, 2019
We just had some electric problems. Not enough amps on C dock.

by scooper321 on Sep 11, 2019
Dock hand that greeted us was knowledgeable about lines and tying up the boat. Had our registration info all ready. Although it was a week day and. It crowded, we were ignored by the Tiki Bar staff. So we went upstairs and ate there. Not ignored there. Good service. Good sushi. Pleasant marina, especially mid week. Definitely will come back (although I’ve heard it’s loud on weekends).

by janetforman on Aug 26, 2019
It was great other than .....really resent the go fast starting their engines at 1 in the morning and revving them for 15 minutes before leaving, I know they have a quiet mode. No rules on this at this marina? Woke me out of a sound sleep. 12, ok....after that, quiet mode please.

by hcb108 on Aug 26, 2019
Dock hands were wonderful, food the best. Love the city.

by j&jmackay on Aug 22, 2019
Nice floating docks in view of the outside bar. What more can you ask?

by jimandkaren on Aug 12, 2019
Dock handler -- Clem -- was outstanding. He was very busy (nice Sunday in August) but still made sure every boat and every Captain was taken care of. He had to run from one end of the marina to the other several times during our visit to ensure every boat was taken care of -- he did not keep anyone waiting. He also did a great job of prioritizing the boats that had reservations and ensuring as many boats as possible were in slips. Food was okay -- we had salads, hamburgers, and some appetizers. A 4 rating for the food -- and service was slow . Beer was very cold and good selection!

by freetimetospare on Aug 11, 2019
Had a great time. Good food, awesome band. The showers definitely need updating.

by harbour1 on Aug 11, 2019
Marina and staff were great but the loud rap music for hours next to our boat was offensive and unacceptable, expected the marina to control the volume but nothing happened.

by aggy155 on Jul 29, 2019
Always a great place to visit.

by jflannery16 on Jul 25, 2019
Very nice staff, good food, great atmosphere

by wmtolbert on Jul 24, 2019
Perfect place to stop for the night or for a meal. Great food, atmosphere. Staff is super polite and professional. Can easily walk into town for a little shopping.

by tamlyn03 on Jul 22, 2019
We only stayed at the marina Saturday night. The reservation through dockwa was perfect!

by verity on Sep 09, 2018
Nice and helpful, floating docks good, restaurant OK

by aspencon on Jun 12, 2018
As always the marina is clean and the restaurant serves a very great meal with excellent service

by boatergal on May 25, 2018
Staff was great, quiet and uneventful night. No wakes, good sleep.

by lflem on May 21, 2018
We stayed the weekend for a family members wedding. My negative comment was your bathhouse facilities were seriously dirty. For the amount of money charged to stay the weekend, the bathhouse facilities were gross. Remind you this is the BEGINNING of boating season so there should be no excuse. Please address the problem for future boaters.

by margozink on Sep 13, 2017
Enjoyed our one night stay here. The staff were very helpful and had our slip assignment already reserved. Lively place with good food close to the historic town ad park for our dog.

by t380fisher on Aug 17, 2017
The dockhands and staff were excellent. This was my first DOCKWA reservation and it was flawless. A good friend had a wedding at the marina, the food was excellent. The dock bar area was very nice. Bartenders and greeters were nice. The only issue I had was there are just 2 bathrooms/showers for the entire marina. They are securely coded, but you have to walk into the deck restaurant and actually excuse yourself from patrons to get to the door. Chairs and tables are set up just next to the doors. Otherwise this place was great.

The Chesapeake Inn is always a great place to stay when your boating around Maryland

by sblessing1 on Jul 17, 2017
Awesome from start to finish. Great food and drink.Great live music. Plenty of dock hands to get boat in and out of the slip. We rented a slip for two overnights. Can`t wait to go back!
