The Chesapeake Club Restaurant

The Chesapeake Club is the Tides Inn’s signature bar and restaurant.

Fine dining at the Chesapeake Club Restaurant in Irvington, Virginia.

The Tides Inn Chesapeake Club is lined with walnut patina lockers celebrating the heritage and prohibition days of the past. In the early days of the resort the county was dry and guests would bring their own beverages and rent a locker during their stay, the rental fee was a club membership and the resort operated as a private club to allow a martini après midi or champagne cocktails on the lawn and wine with dinner. Those guests who did not bring their drinks would be ferried on the resorts private yacht across the river to Urbanna which was in a “wet” county and bring back alcohol for their stay, this weekly trip soon became a highlight of the social scene and was named ‘The Whiskey Run” The lockers are now used for team building memory games and create a rich and colorful backdrop to the restaurant and bar.
