    We had our wedding reception at the Chesapeake Inn a few weeks ago. It was wonderful! Eddie, the Banquet Manager, was so helpful from the very beginning. He was very responsive to emails and calls. On our wedding day, he was at the reception making sure everything ran smoothly. I received compliments from the bridal party on how attentive he was. We knew we were in good hands with Eddie. He is very professional and makes you feel like he has everything under control (and he does!). The dinner was delicious! We heard many good things about the food from our guests. We were pleased that all of our guests got plenty to eat and drink! It really was a fabulous evening. We couldn't have asked for a better venue!

    My wedding at the inn was everything I ever could have imagined. I had my eye on the ballroom for a long time, it's just so beautiful. We had many delicious meals at the inn and they didn't disappoint on my wedding day. Eddie was great to work with, I'm sure it can't be easy dealing with so many brides. He's professional, helpful and responded to every one of my many many emails. His staff is great and everything ran very smoothly. My guests are still talking about how good the food was and how beautiful the room was. Book at the Chesapeake inn !

    The Chesapeake Inn was absolutely amazing during our wedding. From the very beginning they were professional and engaged in the planning and organization, and quick to respond with any questions or concerns we had. Eddie Greer was easy and enjoyable to work with and he conveys confidence, passion, and professionalism in his work. The venue itself was beautiful and perfect in every way. The staff was diligent and friendly, and the food was fantastic. All aspects of the this venue deserve a 5 star rating. Thank you to Eddie Greer and the entire staff of the Chesapeake Inn for making our wedding night memorable for us and our families.

    As parents of the bride, it was important for us to give our daughter the wedding of her dreams. This venue exceeded all of our expectations in that regard. Eddie Greer was diligent in assisting us and our daughter by working closely with the three of us on every last detail. The staff was diligent in keeping our guests happy and all of the candles lit. The dinners were presented swiftly and beautifully. The food was amazing. There was never a long line at the bar. Eddie was understanding and cooperative when some of the pre ceremony details went awry, but assisted in keeping things running smoothly, regardless of some challenges and setbacks encountered, not associated with the staff. As far as the ceremony and reception, we were overjoyed that we were able to give our daughter the wedding of her dreams.

    Our Wedding was so amazing and went without a hitch. From the day we booked the venue Eddie was on top of everything. He is extremely prompt with emails and responding (as it was easier for me to email than call all the time). We live over an hour away and I felt very confident with everything!!! A few days before the wedding when we met with Eddie to finalize the details, he had check lists for me, and had specific steps he took to ensure nothing would be missed. The food was AMAZING!! We had so many compliments on the food, the professionalism and atmosphere. We had a day Wedding and myself, my husband, our families, and closest friends all stayed after and went to the tiki bar for the night - the whole staff knew who I was and made sure we were taken care of while there. If I had to plan it all again, I would not hesitate to have my wedding here! I checked hundreds of venue pricing and nothing compares. Thank you Eddie and staff for making our wedding a day we will never forget!!!

    I got married on March 31. I can't say enough about Chesapeake Inn. Let me first start with Eddie the coordinator.

    Eddie, with his years of experience, made my day more special than I could have imagined. I added a Korean ceremony during the reception and I was worried about time. However I followed Eddie suggestions with the timeline for the evening and everything went off without a hitch. I was even able to do the Sparklers off the balcony.

    The staff at Chesapeake Inn were fantastic! Everything was seamless.

    I have some advice for future brides that are planning a wedding in the area.

    1. Pick Chesapeake Inn if it holds all your guest.
    2. Let Eddie help you plan your day. You really can relax. It's almost like having a personal planner.
    3. Pick the vendors off their list. You can't go wrong. I picked DJ Doug, Kiki Rose, Reverend Loriane, Liz Marden.

    All my guest said that it was the most organized, best food, and beautiful wedding they had ever been to. They would also recommend the place the other people.

    I picked filet and crabcake and it was fantastic!

    I don't even know where to begin in describing my wonderful experience of having my reception at Chesapeake Inn. Eddie Greer was my point-person from the very beginning through the end of my actual reception. He was always responsive to e-mails and phone calls and was helpful in giving suggestions on other vendors and tips to make the day go well.

    On the day of the wedding, the ballroom was set up exactly how I wanted, and it looked absolutely beautiful. The Chesapeake Inn staff were helpful, friendly, and on top of things. For example, Melissa, who is one of the other staff who coordinates receptions, took the time to fix my bustle before we were announced because it just didn't look quite right. Another example of how the staff went above and beyond is described next. I had arranged for a photobooth to be set up at the reception, but the photobooth staff dropped off the photobooth and then quit on the spot. They left minimal supplies and no attendant. Without me even knowing anything about it, Eddie had already been on the phone trying to contact the manager of the company and was working to find supplies. He reassured me that everything would work out fine and reminded me to enjoy the day and worry about dealing with the photobooth vendor later. He was completely true to his word, and he actually had one of his staff run the photobooth all night! What could have been a bad situation ended up being fine and went unnoticed by guests.

    In terms of the food, it was incredible. We went to the tasting and thought everything was delicious there, but we weren't sure how it would be on the actual day of the wedding. Seven months after my wedding, I am still having guests tell me how delicious the meal was and how it was not like "regular wedding food." We had the Chicken Chesapeake and the filet, and it was amazing.

    Aside from the staff and the food, some of my other favorite things about having my wedding reception at Chesapeake Inn include the view from the ballroom, the twinkling ceiling, the deck overlooking the water, and the convenient valet parking for the guests. If I could do it all over again, I would choose Chesapeake Inn in a heartbeat.

    Thanks again to Eddie and all of the other wonderful staff who made my wedding day a dream!

    "Perfect!"

         Reviewed On 10/30/2013 Kathy D

    The ballroom of The Chesapeake Inn is breathtakingly beautiful! The ceiling has a gorgeous chandelier surrounded by fiber optics that make the ceiling twinkle like a night sky. Very dreamy and romantic! If you've ever had dinner at The Chesapeake Inn, I don't have to tell you how good the food is. We got so many compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the food! The staff was great. They don't nickle and dime you like a lot of caterers that have a $2/person cake cutting fee. The Chesapeake Inn Ballroom is very upfront about all of their costs -- what's included and what's not -- so there are no surprises. Our wedding was perfect and I could not have asked for more!

    "BEST WEDDING EVER"

         Reviewed On 10/25/2012 Amy-Beth T

    The Review Title says it all. That was the comment we received from every guest that attended who cared to comment. The location is beautiful, the natural decor of the room, breathtaking, the service of the banquet management and his staff.. TOP NOTCH , the food... UNBELIEVABLY PERFECT. I would not have changed one thing about our reception. Ask for Eddie... Chesapeake Inn KNOWS how to throw a wedding. And they don't nickle and dime you like a lot of places. Our package was basically all inclusive (service, gratuity, valet parking, all you can drink bar, champagne toast, two entree choices for guests, 5 course service, so much food at the cocktail hour - the food just KEPT coming, includes cake by a professional and AWESOME cake baker, linens, place settings...) I just can't say enough about how WONDERFUL Chesapeake Inn and their staff was. We had our Rehearsal Dinner in their restaurant, the wedding in the Ballroom, the After party at their Tiki Bar, and the Next day Farewell Brunch in their private veranda... EVERYTHING was FLAWLESS! look it up, you won't be disappointed.

    Dear Gianmarco,

    Mick and I just got back from our honeymoon in Croatia. Your food has been praised and complimented till this day (~3 weeks later we are still receiving notes on how amazing the food was). My mother who only prefers Chinese cooking even raved about the rockfish, duck and pastas. It is a true testament of culinary talent!

    We had wanted to send this sooner, but our traveling got in the way. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you  to you, your staff, and your family for helping us pull off such an incredible weekend wedding. What a feast it was (trust me no stomach was left hungry)!  In addition to how delicious everything was, I also want to sing the praises of your bartenders and waiting staff. Everyone was professional and incredibly kind. All the guests who came to the river on Friday and Sunday fell in love with their charm.

    Thank you for helping us make memories of a lifetime.

    All of our love & gratitude,

    Ally & Mick
