Fresh Seafood & Hand Cut Steaks in
Jacksonville IL

Offering the locals of Springfield & beyond the freshest seafood, hand-cut steaks, & more since 1983.

One of the trials of living in a landlocked area, like Jacksonville, IL is the lack of access to quality seafood. Well, Chesapeake Seafood House accepts that challenge. Since 1983, we have been serving some of the freshest seafood and tender hand cut steaks the Central Illinois area has to offer, for locals and tourists from around the country to enjoy. We pride ourselves on serving winning recipes that keep our customers coming back for seconds!

Some of the many ways we do this comes from selecting only the freshest and finest collection of vegetables, steaks, fish, lobster, crab and shrimp available. We boast of our diverse fresh seafood selection and our savory cooked steaks – and have the experience with accommodating private parties in our banquet dining areas. Save our website because we constantly update our specials and coupons for the month!

We also serve our Famous Lunch Buffet (Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.)
