Our Restaurants

Chesapeake Restaurant

Serving fresh, seasonal fare in a relaxed atmosphere.

Executive Chef TV Flynn’s trademark is delicately blending flavors without allowing one ingredient to take control of his creations. He says, “Blending flavors is like creating a new color on an artist’s palette - it relates to its origins but is unique in its own right.”

Menus change frequently, as we source the freshest, seasonal ingredients for our dishes. Please see below for sample menus from our dining room.
