• Oysters on a blue plate

Fresh local ingredients, warm, personalized service and waterfront views work in harmony to offer culinary experiences that are memorable and distinctive to the Tides Inn.


Chesapeake Restaurant and Terrace

The Chesapeake Restaurant highlights the bounty of Chesapeake Bay seafood traditions with a modern touch. Blessed with the most pristine ingredients from local waters —  whether it be Blue Crab, Rockfish, or the best formed oysters on the East Coast —  our goal is to let their natural flavors shine. Our menu changes seasonally, and merges these local ingredients with a global influence and a nod towards the traditional foodways of the South. 

To reserve your table, please call (804) 438–4457.

Fish Hawk Oyster Bar

Fish Hawk Oyster Bar is located along our beach and boardwalk just steps from the water. This carefree venue features seafood classics, burgers, a raw bar, local craft beers, wine and creative cocktails. Enjoy a casual, upbeat setting as you dine waterfront indoors or outdoors overlooking Carter’s Creek. Next to the old-fashioned ice cream counter, a vintage boat is filled with fun, nostalgic sweet and savory snacks to carry to the beach, to your guest room or enjoy after a day of activity on the water. 

Chef’s Kitchen

Our Chef’s Kitchen is a contemporary, interactive space for hands-on learning, including pasta making, oyster shucking and mixology classes. This space is available for private experiences for couples, families and small groups.

The View Room features wall-to-wall windows framing our sweeping waterfront views. We invite you to join us in the mornings for barista-made coffee drinks and tea, or for wine, local craft beer and signature cocktails during happy hour. With comfortable couches, armchairs and a fireplace, the room serves as a warm and convivial gathering place. 

In Room Dining

In the comfort of your room or on your private patio, enjoy a hearty breakfast, such as a Blue Crab Omelet. Or, as the sun dips below the horizon, enjoy a glass of wine and a meal from our a la carte In Room Dining menu.
