The Chesapeake Inn Ballroom is an elegant room that main use is for that Cinderella waterfront reception. Every bride’s dream is to dance under the stars of the room overlooking the water. The Ballroom can be customized to any seating you prefer; from a buffet to a sit-down to a station reception. The bride and groom can be elevated onto a stage if they prefer or they can be seating facing the water; whichever way they prefer, our management team will make their reception the best it can be.

The adaptability of room is evident on major holidays; a Brunch Buffet is held in the Ballroom every major holiday. Seating is limited; reserve your spot now. Mother’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve are not the only days we host special events; Murder Mystery Dinners, Wine Dinners, Tribute Shows and more are held in the Ballroom. Check out our Entertainment Calendar for more info.

The Chesapeake Inn is the complete package for a wonderful wedding - from the beautiful Pell Gardens nearby for the ceremony, the elegant ballroom with its own entrance, the professional wait staff to the fabulous food. Our daughter chose the inn for the star studded beautiful ballroom. My husband and I chose it for the location and great food we enjoy in their restaurant; but we got way more than that. The chef for the ballroom and his staff were superb. The head waitress, Cathy, and her staff went above and beyond being helpful and professional; and Eddie did a great job taking care of everything and making sure we had all we needed throughout the night!

When picking the place to have our wedding reception we didn't look any other place. The Chesapeake Inn has everything you will need or want. Eddie goes above and beyond to make everything perfect and easy during the planning process. The food was amazing and we are still getting complements about everything people tried. Having the reception at the Chesapeake Inn I was a very calm bride the day of the wedding because I knew Eddie and his staff had everything under control. Everything was perfect.

Having a wedding at the Chesapeake Inn is the best decision a bride and groom can make. The food is unbelievable, the service is exceptional, the value is phenomenal, and the atmosphere is absolutely gorgeous. The banquet manager Eddie is so fantastic at his job it is obviously his calling in life. Having Eddie coordinate your wedding is almost like having a wedding planner for free – he is that amazing.

Eddie will respond to your emails usually within minutes to hours. As a busy bride this is the biggest blessing you could imagine! He literally takes the stress out of coordinating the wedding.

The only hiccup we had during the wedding was that we paid for 2 beers to be on tap however only 1 beer was on tap. Apparently there were cans of the second beer available but it was frustrating to pay so much extra money and not get exactly what we paid for. Other than that, the entire reception went as smoothly as possible.

We had 135 guests and some had special diet requirements. The staff did a perfect job at delivering the meals to the correct people. The staff was polite, friendly, and professional.
We had a significant number of guests tell us it was by far the best wedding they have ever been to. If you choose Chesapeake Inn as your wedding venue you will be beyond pleased with every facet of the experience. We would highly recommend this venue for a wedding, a party, or just a lovely dinner on the water. What a magnificent venue!

We enjoyed working with Eddie at the Chesapeake Inn. He did a great job keeping us on our budget and working with us to accommodate our guests' needs. The food was fantastic, the venue is gorgeous. The amount on our bill was-to the penny-the exact amount of the estimate Eddie quoted for us. Many of our guests enjoyed the location and meal at our wedding so much that they made another trip to The Chesapeake Inn for another meal! The location is lovely, food terrific, and I'd recommend the Chesapeake Inn to any couple.

Our Wedding was so amazing and went without a hitch. From the day we booked the venue Eddie was on top of everything. He is extremely prompt with emails and responding (as it was easier for me to email than call all the time). We live over an hour away and I felt very confident with everything!!! A few days before the wedding when we met with Eddie to finalize the details, he had check lists for me, and had specific steps he took to ensure nothing would be missed. The food was AMAZING!! We had so many compliments on the food, the professionalism and atmosphere. We had a day Wedding and myself, my husband, our families, and closest friends all stayed after and went to the tiki bar for the night - the whole staff knew who I was and made sure we were taken care of while there. If I had to plan it all again, I would not hesitate to have my wedding here! I checked hundreds of venue pricing and nothing compares. Thank you Eddie and staff for making our wedding a day we will never forget!!!

I loved everything about the Chesapeake Inn. Eddie was a pleasure to work with. The food was not your typical wedding food, and we still get compliments on it. The views from the ballroom are gorgeous. Everyone loved being able to go out on the veranda and get some fresh air. We even received compliments on the bathroom! :-)

We had our ceremony at Pell Gardens and our reception at the Chesapeake Inn this July. It was absolutely beautiful and everything that we imagined. Eddie (the manager) was very easy to work with and did everything that we requested. We got so many compliments with our dinner choices also. There is not one negative thing I could say about this venue.

Eddie and his team were FABULOUS to work with!! We loved the venue the moment we walked in, as my Mom is from the area. All of our guests were impressed with the view and how delicious all the food was. We went with the "station" option, and it was great to get the party started right away, and allow us to save by only having a 4 hour reception. The staff was professional, and flexible to meet all of my needs. They did a great job setting up the decorations we left behind because of a tight turnaround. Wish I could relive the night all over again!!!!

I got married on March 31. I can't say enough about Chesapeake Inn. Let me first start with Eddie the coordinator.

Eddie, with his years of experience, made my day more special than I could have imagined. I added a Korean ceremony during the reception and I was worried about time. However I followed Eddie suggestions with the timeline for the evening and everything went off without a hitch. I was even able to do the Sparklers off the balcony.

The staff at Chesapeake Inn were fantastic! Everything was seamless.

I have some advice for future brides that are planning a wedding in the area.

1. Pick Chesapeake Inn if it holds all your guest.
2. Let Eddie help you plan your day. You really can relax. It's almost like having a personal planner.
3. Pick the vendors off their list. You can't go wrong. I picked DJ Doug, Kiki Rose, Reverend Loriane, Liz Marden.

All my guest said that it was the most organized, best food, and beautiful wedding they had ever been to. They would also recommend the place the other people.

I picked filet and crabcake and it was fantastic!

Eddie and the Team at the Chesapeake Inn were such a big part in making our day into a fabulous event! Eddie was easy to work with and was extremely responsive to some of the changes/additions we wanted, especially as the day grew nearer. Everything ran smoothly the night of the wedding, even though they had had an event earlier that day. I can't tell you what I loved most....the water view or knowing that our event was the only big event going on that night (Chesapeake Inn only has one ballroom). It just made our event feel so much more intimate. The food was so delicious and we had so many of our guests rave about it, especially the amazing hors d'eouvres. Looking back, we are so happy that we had our day at this venue!

I don't even know where to begin in describing my wonderful experience of having my reception at Chesapeake Inn. Eddie Greer was my point-person from the very beginning through the end of my actual reception. He was always responsive to e-mails and phone calls and was helpful in giving suggestions on other vendors and tips to make the day go well.

On the day of the wedding, the ballroom was set up exactly how I wanted, and it looked absolutely beautiful. The Chesapeake Inn staff were helpful, friendly, and on top of things. For example, Melissa, who is one of the other staff who coordinates receptions, took the time to fix my bustle before we were announced because it just didn't look quite right. Another example of how the staff went above and beyond is described next. I had arranged for a photobooth to be set up at the reception, but the photobooth staff dropped off the photobooth and then quit on the spot. They left minimal supplies and no attendant. Without me even knowing anything about it, Eddie had already been on the phone trying to contact the manager of the company and was working to find supplies. He reassured me that everything would work out fine and reminded me to enjoy the day and worry about dealing with the photobooth vendor later. He was completely true to his word, and he actually had one of his staff run the photobooth all night! What could have been a bad situation ended up being fine and went unnoticed by guests.

In terms of the food, it was incredible. We went to the tasting and thought everything was delicious there, but we weren't sure how it would be on the actual day of the wedding. Seven months after my wedding, I am still having guests tell me how delicious the meal was and how it was not like "regular wedding food." We had the Chicken Chesapeake and the filet, and it was amazing.

Aside from the staff and the food, some of my other favorite things about having my wedding reception at Chesapeake Inn include the view from the ballroom, the twinkling ceiling, the deck overlooking the water, and the convenient valet parking for the guests. If I could do it all over again, I would choose Chesapeake Inn in a heartbeat.

Thanks again to Eddie and all of the other wonderful staff who made my wedding day a dream!

We did not have our ceremony here, just the reception- but I do not see an option for reception only.

Our event planner, Eddie, was fantastic! He was helpful, kind, and not at all pushy. After meeting with many planners in many locations, we felt like we hit the jackpot with Eddie!

Our reception was absolutely beautiful! The ballroom is gorgeous, the food was amazing, all of the guests told us how mush they loved our wedding, and the backdrop of the water was so beautiful.

Chesapeak Inn, Eddie and all the staff were awesome. It made the night less stressful with how professional they were and how they took care of everything the entire night. I would recommend having any occasion at Chesapeak Inn.

Overall my experience with Chesapeake Inn was absolutely fantastic. In planning the wedding, I dealt directly with Eddie Greer. I had about a million questions but he patiently responded to each and every one of them. During the wedding itself, he and his staff proved to be very experienced in dealing with weddings and had all possible scenarios covered. Everything went off without a hitch.

The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. The ceiling is what drew me to the venue initially, and it didn't fail to disappoint! The huge windows looking out over the water really set the mood and the natural light was beautiful. We made use of the veranda for the ceremony, which was gorgeous as well. (My only issue with the veranda is that it is a tight space, even for a relatively smallish wedding like we had, but it worked out just fine.)

The food was great as well - definitely higher quality and better selection than we have come to expect attending other weddings!

One of the things that I absolutely loved about working with this venue was how they worked with us on price. Eddie was very up-front about exactly what it would cost before we signed anything with them, and it was a breath of fresh air compared to the several other venues we had dealt with that had several hidden costs and fees. He also helped us to figure out what things we could cut out of their packages or how we could customize things in order to find a combination of services and prices that worked best for us, and we ended up with something that we absolutely loved.

If I have any complaint, it is that the contract is vaguely worded, and when I asked about adding things to the contract that we had verbally discussed, I was met with some hesitance that made me feel uncomfortable. In the end, Eddie did add what I requested to a different document, which made me feel much more comfortable about proceeding, and the venue followed through with everything they agreed to do - even went above and beyond!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Chesapeake Inn. Eddie, the manager, was not only easy to work with, but such a professional. He guided us through every detail of the ceremony/reception and this really takes a burden off your shoulders, especially as it got closer to our special day. The entire staff was wonderful. We got so many compliments on how kind and courteous the staff was. The food was delicious! We still have friends/family telling us how much they loved the food. I was worried since our wedding was in March that the weather might not be so good. It turned out to be such a beautiful day! The view from the Ballroom was magnificent. Everyone told us what a beautiful wedding and wonderful time they had and I believe having our special day at the Chesapeake Inn made all the difference in the world. If I had to recommend a venue or do this over again, I would definitely choose The Chesapeake Inn!

Eddie (Event Manager) did a wonderful job making sure everything went well on our wedding day. He organized all of our vendors to allow us to have our ceremony outside despite an impending thunderstorm, allowing us to change the time of our reception to accomodate an earlier start. We also received great feedback from our guests; everyone loved the food and the ballroom.

We had our wedding reception at Chesapeake Inn and it was the perfect fit for us. The ballroom is beautiful. The staff was great and helped us in every way possible. The food was delicious as well. The only complaint I had is that the wedding party did not get to experience the stand up food stations but everything else was wonderful. We only had 140 people at our wedding and the room was the perfect size for us. There are also so many photo opportunities on the water as well which we were able to take advantage of. Eddie was great to work with. He is so organized with everything and very fast with getting back to you on any questions you have. I felt comfortable that everything would be perfect and it was!

We were so lucky to have the Chesapeake Inn available for the day we wanted to get married. The whole team at the Inn were such a pleasure to work with and made my day so special and the location totally impressed our guest from the amazing food (beyond better than any other wedding ive attended) to the super beautiful ballroom. If Chesapeake Inn is available for your wedding day jump on it. SO WORTH IT!!

The food was superior when compared to typical wedding food. Our choices were euro chicken and crab cakes. We also had the gelato station which was awesome!

The only aspect I wasn't thrilled about was the cleaning up that starts about 30 or more minutes at the end of the reception. Several people had their favors/other table items removed without realizing.

I had my wedding reception at the Chesapeake Inn and it was amazing! The Chesapeake Inn has amazing views of the C&D Canal and is located in the most amazing quaint town of Chesapeake City, MD. The ballroom at the Chesapeake Inn is beautiful with a twinkling lighted ceiling, panoramic windows with views of the canal, and a wrap-around balcony for smokers and those who want to enjoy the views outside. The chairs, china and linens included with the ballroom are all top-quality and very nice. I couldn't have asked for a better value for the location.

I worked with Melissa throughout the planning process up until 2 weeks before the wedding. Melissa was very responsive, listened to my needs and was able to work within my budget and preferences. She created an amazing menu and worked her schedule to meet with me whenever I requested. Two weeks before the wedding, Melissa transitioned everything to the Eddie, the Banquet Manager. Eddie was clearly the one in charge and very confident with his experience and expertise. Unfortunately, he came across inflexible and brash. After my first visit with Eddie two weeks before the wedding, I left wondering if I made a mistake on having the reception at this location. Eddie spent most of our first meeting either taking cell phone calls or telling us that the knew what he was doing and he would just decide how to set things up based on what he thought would work best. He didn't seem to listen to any of our special requests (such as having several high top tables near the bar for mingling) and left me feeling unsure of what to expect. I was disappointed to see he did not include the high top tables at our reception although the room appeared to have plenty of free space. I'm sure he is the expert and does know how to set up a reception best, but he didn't leave me feeling like I was a part of the planning process and he didn't seem to try to include my suggestions or preferences in any way. I was also upset to see that he decided to set up the food in two different areas completely across the room from one another. Several guests commented to me after the reception that they didn't even know there was another table of food (different types of food). The layout didn't make sense to me and I would have like to understood it before the day of the wedding.

Although I was disappointed by the room layout, I was very pleased with the quality of food. Everything was delicious and excellently maintained. The bartender was amazing & very friendly. The wait staff was on top of everything. The place was immaculate at all times and I never had to look far to find someone if I wanted something.

All in all, the Chesapeake Inn is an amazing venue that I would highly recommend.
