Great Bridge Restaurants
With gorgeous intracoastal views and a welcoming community, the Great Bridge neighborhood offers a laid back environment alongside a respite from city life, with meals available right by the water.
Stop by Buckets Bar And Grill for fried pickles, potato skins, BLTs, and tons of other American classics. With dozens of TVs, this local hangout is sure to be screening a game or two you’ll want to watch while enjoying ice-cold beers and scrumptious hot eats.
The Butcher’s Son Chop House puts a spin on the classic American steakhouse by combining the sleekness of an East Coast metropolis with the casual appeal of the American South. Pull up a bar stool, slide into a booth, or grab a table to enjoy locally harvested and humanely treated meats, like bone-in lamb chop, tenderloin, and prime rib, that are free of antibiotics and hormones. Specialty dishes like Steak and Cake—sirloin with crab cake—and seafood mac and cheese are great options. And with sides like broccolini, potatoes, and creamed spinach, no one will go home hungry.
If you’re looking for somewhere with delicious food that also gives back to the Chesapeake community, head to Ddeb’s-A-Taste of Home. Here, you’ll find new twists like maple-walnut chicken or a crab and artichoke melt. Or, you can enjoy American classics like liver and onions or chicken parmigiana. Coleslaw and mac and cheese will round out your dish, as will sensational desserts like cheesecakes, cobblers, and brownies.
Want a down-to-earth place to find a quick bite? City Deli is your place. Sprawl out in a booth or get your food to go. Choose from sandwiches like Cubans, Reubens, or the Chesapeake Club. Or, try breakfast sandwiches, omelets, and French toast specials all day.
Head to Kapers Eatery, Chesapeake’s only tapas restaurant, to dine on truffle fries, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, lamb chops, stuffed mushrooms, seared scallops, and many other fabulous dishes.
In search of something sweet? Donuts and frozen custard meet at this wildly creative and fun-for-all-ages establishment. Choose from one of the specialty donuts Amazing Glazed has to offer, create your own, or split one in half and fill it with frozen custard for a decadent delight you won’t soon forget.
