A really fantastic meal at one of their outdoor tables. A server that was fun but didn’t hover. Freshest salad I’ve had in months and sardines in grape leaves we will continue to rave about. The baklava was surprisingly so so but the evening was one to savor.

We sit on the patio due to the nice weather. we started with a half a dozen oysters that had just been brought in off the boat. My husband had the fish schnitzel which we have never seen on any menu before.. it was excellent! Because the oysters were so fresh I decided to have the fried oysters. The breading was very light and they were prepared perfectly. We finished with cream pie, which was good, but not the best. Its flavor was a little flat. We recommend this restaurant highly for a nice evening..

About the restaurant
**Terrace Now Open. Seating available for walk-ins on a first-come-first-serve basis.**
True Chesapeake is a fine dining restaurant born of an oyster farm. Executive Chef Zack Mills creates a seasonal menu that showcases oysters from our far St. Jerome’s Creek, Southern Maryland — raw, roasted, and in signature dishes like Classic Rockefeller and Semolina Fried Oysters. But, the oysters are just the beginning. Our award winning menu celebrates the bounty of the Chesapeake region by using locally sourced seafood, meat, and produce to create exquisite dishes that evolve with the seasons. Chef Mills has been featured extensively for his use of invasive seafood species, a very delicious way to help the Chesapeake Bay. Don't forget to order the Blue Crab and Bone Marrow dip or handmade pasta. We have an expertly curated wine list, beer selection, and cocktails - both classic and creative. Ample bar, high-top, and terrace seating available for walk-ins on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Absolutely the best! Moved to Florida 6 years ago, but whenever we visit, this is our first stop (and usually we go several times!). The crab cakes are unbeatable and I always order that. But last night, the owner sent over a complimentary appetizer of the grilled shrimp (the friends we were with are regulars), and that was wonderful as well! My wife had the crab imperial, and again, terrific. We’re here in town one more night, so guess where we’ll be!

The Choptank was AMAZING! We went there for our first wedding anniversary and they made the night so special. When we checked in, the hostess said happy anniversary and the waiter (Leo) said it as well and just those little things really made us feel special to be there. The food was delicious, we had the fried calamari, seafood pasta, and the lobster roll (10 out of 10 recommend) I have nothing but great things to say about our time at Choptank!
