Since 1971 this Cribb family-owned eatery has been serving some of the freshest seafood on the Strand. As one of the first establishments on Restaurant Row, the Chesapeake House combines Maryland-style seafood with true Southern hospitality to create a place that keeps crowds coming back for more year after year.
Chesapeake House Food
From the moment your server places a basket of hot hushpuppies and cinnamon rolls from the on-site bakery on your table, your mouth is in for a treat at the Chesapeake House. Try the famous fish stew or lobster pie as a warm-up to the main course, which includes fried seafood platters and fresh catch specials, including shrimp, scallops, lobster and grouper. The steamed crab legs are a hit, and the Chesapeake House has a nice selection of steaks and other “landfood” options to keep everyone in your party happy. Be sure to save room for dessert, which is made at the in-house bakery. An extensive wine list and full bar complete the experience.
Chesapeake House Atmosphere
The Chesapeake House’s location on a tidal pond offers excellent views of local wildlife, including alligators, seabirds and turtles. The dining area has a traditional nautical theme and a giant aquarium features unique views of sea life. A large bar area is suitable for dining and displays a 12-foot shark on the wall.
This is one of our 'can't miss' places when we come to the beach. We are actually more excited about the crab legs than the beach. The fried flounder and shrimp platter is amazing as well and the service is always wonderful. We normally go a little later around 8 and the wait isn't bad. You have to go here when in Myrtle Beach!!!
