This is our usual date night spot . The food is always amazing and while it isn't a hot spot for night life we always leave very satisfied.

We have been to this restaurant twice, and it has been really good both times. The first time we enjoyed the early bird menu served between 4:00 and 6:00. These specials are so good, and the prices really reasonable. The noon meal offers a buffet with several hot entrees, a salad bar, and even a small dessert bar. The food... More

Chesapeake Seafood offers a delicious meal at a fair price. I have been going to Springfield for business for a number of years, and this restaurant is consistently good. Most recently, I had blackened tilapia and it was great. Portion sizes are generous. The meal comes with fresh bread, a large salad, plus your fish and potatoes, rice or vegetable.... More

If you want a good sea food meal this is the place to go. They have been in Springfield for a very long time. There menu includes lobster and they have a full bar. There are also steak and others items for non-sea food liking people. The staff is very friendly and food arrived in a timely manner. I would... More

One of my "go to" restaurants in the Springfield area for Seafood. The aroma of fresh bread greets every customer. They always find a good place for me to sit as a solo dinner, and I appreciate that. This evening I had stuffed Tilapia which was tasty, cooked perfectly. I searched my plate for the single hush puppy I usually... More

My wife and I went there for dinner tonight. The best part of the meal was the side salad. The stuffed mushrooms tasted like salty stove top dressing. We both had the fried lobster and it too was extremely salty. It was just a super oily, salty meal. When you want seafood, you think freshness. This was all but that.

If you're going to Springfield you have to stop here. The menu has a nice selection of not only seafood but their meats are high quality. They have combination seafood and meat items also. We have never been disappointed with any meal there. We go there with our AMVETS post and Dan the owner goes out of his way to... More

Went with modest expectations and only glad I did. Dining alone is a bit of a funny affair, but then you do expect the team to get the order right. It was only me and I ordered two things - oysters and orange roughy. Fish came. But they forgot the oysters, which they asked me to have after the fish...... More

Dinner at the Chesapeake was delicious. We had lobster rangoons for an appetizer and tilapia stuffed with crab was really good! The au gratin potatoes were just ok. My old fashion was just ok as well, but I'm from Wisconsin -so I'm a tough critic! Overall, very good food and service!
