Restaurant Dining

Dine in, not out! Enjoy the simple pleasure of being served by wait staff, the beautiful presentation of food, and the joy of being with other people. (And, clean up is on the house. There won’t be any to-go containers to contend with.) We recommend making reservations at Ambrogia Cafe and Hook at Harvey. You can’t go wrong!

Beach Wandering

The Bay Haven Inn of Cape Charles is just four blocks from the shoals and sandy beach of the Chesapeake Bay.

So why not walk to the beach, crunch your feet in the sand, wiggle your toes, and breathe the salty air! 

Lift your face to the sky and let the sun and air warm you while the Bay’s waves wash around you.

Is there anything that’s better than that? And it’s so easy to do. 

Stunning Chesapeake Bay Sunsets

The town of Cape Charles faces west towards the Chesapeake Bay. So every night of the week there’s a sunset so gorgeous it’s hard to even imagine. Raise a glass of wine and toast Mother Nature! 

Pro Tip: Choose a restaurant with a sunset view like the Oyster Farm Eatery or The Shanty.
