Very nice restaurant, usually visit once or twice in a week long visit. Flounder stuffed with crab exceptional, grilled mahi mahi and steak were delicious. Start with bread, cinnamon rolls and hushpuppies, bread is only OK but the rest was excellent. Scenic view of lake with wildlife, and prices also not as high as other restaurants of this caliber. Highest marks

Special mahi-mahi was dried up, lobster pot was too rich, crab cakes were more breading than crab. Probably will never go back!.

The quietest place I have ever eaten at the beach. You can get seafood anywhere at the beach but this was cooked to perfection and flavored just right.

Went to restaurant for 3lst anniversary. The food was excellent Best Flounder I have ever had. Flavorful and flaky. Husband had chicken the was melt in your mouth tender. Bread basket was very good. Had 2 slices french bread, 10-12 hush puppies and 2 melt in your mouth cinnamon rolls! After we finished eating, the server ask if we were going Christmas shopping. We told her we were there for our 31st anniversary. She proceeded to give us a slice of key lime pie on the house.

We stop in on the way home. Heard the food was great. I don't know what they ate when they were there, but it's not as good as advertised. I had the sea food platter broiled. It was ok. My wife ordered Fried chicken,and veggies. The waiter brings out a plate with three white meat breast that look like they were cooked in dirty oil. They were so dark it looked like they were burnt. She asked for a leg and thigh. I've lived here for 20 years, and this is one place I will never return to. Very poor.

My wife and I were in there 0n July18th. The food was tasteless to the point of me almost asking for my money back. As I told them on e-mail I was raised on the Chestapeake Bay and am 67 years old so I feel I know what GOOD seafoog is, this is not! The shrimp and scollops were almost to the point of being raw. I paid about $7 more at the Flying Fish, now that is quality seafood. What bothers me the mos is no return e-mail and I asked for a Military discount & was told they do not take it. As I told them I was defending our country so they could open this restraaunt in 1971. NO THANKS I will never go back do yourself a favor & don't go at all.

This restaurant was recommended to us by someone who visits MB every year. When we arrived we were told it would be a 30min. wait for my family of 12. After waiting for 1 hour and 30 mins. and being told by the hostess several times it would be 10 more mins. my family had to leave and find another place to eat. We had a family member headed home after our meal and had a 6 hour drive so we could not countinue to wait "10 more mins." It was the most unprofessional staff we have ever delt with. We saw many parties come, eat and leave while we waited outside being told we could have the next table. I refuse to believe they have only one table that would accommodate 12 people, but that is what we were led to believe. We were not impressed with anything to do with this place or the surrounding area.

Been going to Myrtle Beach for 20 years. This is the "Best". Even on a bad day their food and service is great. Anyone saying otherwise probably works or owns another restaurant!!! This is the first restaurant we go to when we arrive and the last one to eat at before we leave.

This is the worst dining experience I have ever had. We come to Myrtle Beach at least 3 times a year. The food portion size was smaller than last year and the prices have gone up once again. The fish was watery and from working in a restaurant I can tell its not as fresh as they claim, its been frozen and who knows how many times its been frozen. The server was slow, the soup had a taste to it that didnt make me want anymore and the scallops were rediculously small. I dont beleive they weighed them when they portioned them. The only thing which made the night decent was watching the turtles and the alligator in the back. Will not be coming back to this establishment in the fall. When we tried to talk to the manager in regards to our dislikes, we were blown off and we didnt want a free meal. We felt our problems needed attention.

We have been eating at the establishment almost every year since 1960. We have always enjoyed excellent food and great service. I would recommend this restaurant to all who come to Myrtle Beach. It has great atmosphere and food.

I have been going there since before I was born as my parents love Mrytle Beach and have been going there for years. I am now 28 and going to Chesapeake House is a yearly tradition for us. I have loved the fish stew there for years and I remember how excited I was when I was little the first time I learned I could get the fish stew as a meal. On top of the great food, drink, service and entertainment of "Wally" and turtles in the lake, the people of Chesapeake House surprised me yesterday by granting my request for the recipe of their fish stew appetizer. I can't wait to try and cook up a batch but I know it won't compare to what I get there.

I have been dining here since I was a child, now I bring my children. It is by far our favorite restaurant at Myrtle Beach. The food is excellent. The bread basket with the sweet hushpuppies is a family favorite.

Had dinner there this evening, It was good, But not great, Have had better seafood at other places on the Grand Strand, Don't regret eating there, but nothing special about it that will warrant a return trip either. Did however enjoy watching the turtles and alligator in the lake out back

March 2011. First time we have tried Chesapeake House. We had a party of 6. Have eaten at the sister restaurant next door many times. Our service was excellent. The fish soup had a little "bite" to it but I found it excellent. Our table ordered a variety of items including king crab legs, scallops and fish. We will return again!!

Cannot understand how this restaurant is rated #1 in the MB area for seafood (2010 poll) other than they got a lot of regulars to vote. Went after the rating and newspaper articles and were unimpressed with the food - I can name 20 restaurants with far better seafood. We recently went back to try again. Service was good as are the cinnamon rolls and hush puppies, but the seafood again mediocre. Lobster pie did have a lot of lobster (tough) and crab meat but was tasteless. Ditto the shrimp and grits and crab cakes. Take your money and tastebuds elsewhere!
