Delectable Chesapeake Restaurant Options Await

Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa Dining

While best known for our signature Rod ‘N’ Reel restaurant, which has been a Chesapeake Beach favorite since 1946, the resort offers two other Chesapeake Beach restaurants perfect for any taste and occasion – Smokey Joe’s Grill and the outdoor Boardwalk Café. Enjoy a romantic dinner and wonderful Bay views at The Rod ‘N’ Reel. Head to Smokey Joe’s Grill for the juicy, stacked burgers, pulled pork sandwiches and sweet, tangy ribs that fall off the bone. Located on the boardwalk with uninterrupted views of the Bay, the outdoor Boardwalk Café is just the spot for cocktails and appetizers.

Rod 'N' Reel Restaurant

Happy Group Dining

Three generations of success cannot be wrong. Since 1946, the fresh seafood pulled from the bay and cooked up in all manner of delicious ways has made this restaurant a decades-long institution for locals and visitors alike. Critics can't seem to say enough good things about the fantastic dishes. And the full house proves they're not the only ones who feel that way about the food. This waterfront restaurant also serves up fine banquets for weddings and other events.
