Business of month

The Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce (RFCC) recognized 495 Chesapeake Eats as its September Business of the Month Thursday, Sept. 2.

Chris Fox opened his restaurant in December 2016 after 25 years in the restaurant business. The restaurant serves wood-fired steaks and seafood, unique Maryland style dishes, craft cocktails, and a selection of premium whiskeys. Several dishes, such as the Maryland Crab Cakes, apply recipes he learned as young as his elementary school years. The restaurant offers weekly entrée and drink specials as well as rotating fresh fish and steaks on weekends. He continues to provide Rockport a unique dining experience with his wood-fired grill and creative menu offerings; while also supporting our community during events such as the Taste of Rockport-Fulton and other sponsorships. He also supports the Rockport Center for the Arts, Boys and Girls Club, SPCA and other local organizations.
