Due to the mandated closure of all restaurants and bars by the State of Maryland, we will be temporarily suspending all transient traffic to the marina. We anticipate opening the marina to transient boaters when the Chesapeake Inn is permitted by the State to re-open the restaurant.
We will keep you informed of any updates or changes to this information we have provided. We appreciate your patience as well as understanding of the situation at hand. We are working tirelessly to adapt to all the changes that occur daily and we will do everything within our abilities to get your favorite destination up and running to enjoy a beautiful boating season. Thank you and look forward to seeing everyone soon!
The Chesapeake Inn Marina is located in the scenic Back Creek Basin and offers boaters a beautiful place to spend the day or stay the night. With the support of our expert marina staff, easily accessible amenities, and worry-free floating docks, you’ll have nothing but fun from tie up to cast off. We provide live music, slip-side food and drink service, and docking aid every day to ensure your satisfaction in an experience as unique as the Chesapeake Bay itself. Need a break from the boat? Feel free to take some time off the water and enjoy our historic town of Chesapeake City. With downtown just steps from the marina, its quaint streets offer unique shops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and top-tier restaurants ready to make your retreat unforgettable.
Make it a day trip! Berth is free before 11pm and guests are accommodated on a first-come-first-serve basis. If the marina is full upon your arrival please take advantage of the Back Creek basin. Drop an anchor in its secluded lagoon adjacent to our docks and we will pick you up on our water taxi, free of charge.
Thinking of staying the night? You do not need to make a reservation to spend a night with us, but if you want to better your chances of receiving dockage, we recommend you reserve a slip. Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance and only for those intending to stay overnight. To reserve a slip feel free to reach out over the phone, via email, or through Dockwa. Power, water, and shower access are included in your dockage fee.
Always fun and dock hands are skilled and helpful.
Marina staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Chesapeake City is a charming historic village with great restaurant choices. Although our stay was mid-week and nearly off season-- we could see that the marina and restaurants at the Inn are a 'happening' spot. The Tiki Bar had lively music playing all afternoon and evening-- but not too loud.
We particularly liked the powerwashing at the Tiki Bar at 7:AM accompanied by the loud cursing of the operator. We also liked the table set up blocking the ramp from the dock. Our favorite was the absence of anyone from the marina until noon. We arrived early around 10:30. Then we had to move because a 50’ needed our slip. We are 47’ LOA. The best was the dochand who called the lines “ropes”!
We just had some electric problems. Not enough amps on C dock.
Dock hand that greeted us was knowledgeable about lines and tying up the boat. Had our registration info all ready. Although it was a week day and. It crowded, we were ignored by the Tiki Bar staff. So we went upstairs and ate there. Not ignored there. Good service. Good sushi. Pleasant marina, especially mid week. Definitely will come back (although I’ve heard it’s loud on weekends).
It was great other than .....really resent the go fast starting their engines at 1 in the morning and revving them for 15 minutes before leaving, I know they have a quiet mode. No rules on this at this marina? Woke me out of a sound sleep. 12, ok....after that, quiet mode please.
Dock hands were wonderful, food the best. Love the city.
Nice floating docks in view of the outside bar. What more can you ask?
Dock handler -- Clem -- was outstanding. He was very busy (nice Sunday in August) but still made sure every boat and every Captain was taken care of. He had to run from one end of the marina to the other several times during our visit to ensure every boat was taken care of -- he did not keep anyone waiting. He also did a great job of prioritizing the boats that had reservations and ensuring as many boats as possible were in slips. Food was okay -- we had salads, hamburgers, and some appetizers. A 4 rating for the food -- and service was slow . Beer was very cold and good selection!
Had a great time. Good food, awesome band. The showers definitely need updating.
Marina and staff were great but the loud rap music for hours next to our boat was offensive and unacceptable, expected the marina to control the volume but nothing happened.
Very nice staff, good food, great atmosphere
Perfect place to stop for the night or for a meal. Great food, atmosphere. Staff is super polite and professional. Can easily walk into town for a little shopping.
We only stayed at the marina Saturday night. The reservation through dockwa was perfect!
Nice and helpful, floating docks good, restaurant OK
Awesome staff and dock guys, they know how to take care of you there, and the entertainment and amenities where great, love this place.
As always the marina is clean and the restaurant serves a very great meal with excellent service
Staff was great, quiet and uneventful night. No wakes, good sleep.
We stayed the weekend for a family members wedding. My negative comment was your bathhouse facilities were seriously dirty. For the amount of money charged to stay the weekend, the bathhouse facilities were gross. Remind you this is the BEGINNING of boating season so there should be no excuse. Please address the problem for future boaters.
Enjoyed our one night stay here. The staff were very helpful and had our slip assignment already reserved. Lively place with good food close to the historic town ad park for our dog.
The dockhands and staff were excellent. This was my first DOCKWA reservation and it was flawless. A good friend had a wedding at the marina, the food was excellent. The dock bar area was very nice. Bartenders and greeters were nice. The only issue I had was there are just 2 bathrooms/showers for the entire marina. They are securely coded, but you have to walk into the deck restaurant and actually excuse yourself from patrons to get to the door. Chairs and tables are set up just next to the doors. Otherwise this place was great.
The Chesapeake Inn is always a great place to stay when your boating around Maryland
Fun spot! The marina staff are very nice and helpful. Great floating docks. The food at the restaurant was very good and the servers were top shelf. The downstairs bar was rocking with a live band, who were great! At the present moment, we're sitting The Deck outside bar having lunch. The menu has great variety, staff is excellent, and there are a ton of tv's so you can watch whatever sports event you want. We will definitely come back!
