Due to growing concerns surrounding COVID-19, we’ve decided to temporarily close Chesapeake & Maine. The health and safety of our visitors, co-workers and community is our top priority, and we’re taking additional measures to ensure their well-being. Based on government requirements, our locations will be closed until further notice and all events during the month of March have been canceled. We are continuing to evaluate and will update this space accordingly.


Inspired by founder Sam Calagione’s summers spent in Maine and Dogfish Head’s connection to the Chesapeake region, Chesapeake & Maine is our geographically enamored seafood restaurant. With seafood sourced exclusively from the Chesapeake and Maine region (starting to see where the name came from?), you’ll find our off-centered take on coastal dishes, handcrafted cocktails and Dogfish beers in a casual, nautical-themed atmosphere.

A custom-built raw bar serves an ever-rotating selection of oysters, clams and seafood from the waters of our namesake regions, as well as our innovative ‘Smoke in the Water’ oysters. Developed in collaboration with our friends at Hoopers Island Oyster Aquaculture Company, these unique oysters are settled in holding pens filled with Chesapeake Bay water infused with culinary wood-smoked salt, making for the most off-centered bivalve in the US! 

As a James Beard Award semi-finalist nominee for ‘Best Bar Program,’ Chesapeake & Maine’s inventive cocktail program highlights our scratch-made spirits from Dogfish Head Distilling Co. Holding true to Dogfish Head fashion, you’ll find an offbeat approach from our mixologists with new inspired drinks, keg-conditioned cocktails and of course, off-centered ales.

With original artwork from artist Jon Langford, the restaurant is playfully decorated with seafaring interpretations of country and rock music icons who anchor Chesapeake & Maine’s playlist: Billie Holiday, Chet Baker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Elvis Presley and Patsy Cline. Other artists include Travis Louie who created otherworldly sea characters to adorn the walls, as well as Tony Millionaire who crafted an alley of sea monsters and fantastical nautical maps.
