Nice lunch while on the road

We stopped here while driving north through the Delmarva area. It was not crowded for a late lunch so service was prompt and friendly. The crab soup was the Maryland type with plenty of vegetables in red broth and small chucks of crab with a tiny bit of heat. Crab minis made a good light entree... read more

We were staying on Chincoteague but our favorite restaurants were still closed. We got a tip from a local about Don's. Drove the 20 miles and loved it from the greeting at the door. This place was busy with larger groups but did not phase the crew. We shared the seafood platter because we could not pick just one. You... More

The wait staff were very friendly and attentive, the hostess not so much. The salad bar was pretty fresh, but my meal itself was not very appetizing. There were out of a lot on the menu, maybe they should consider an off season menu.

Returning from a trip down the Delmarva peninsula to the VA part of the peninsula on Black Friday, we looked for a restaurant that would offer the area seafood specialties... not much between Accomac, VA and Maryland. This one fit the bill, with comfortable booths. I had the seafood platter with all kinds of fish and seafood... it was excellent,... More

While traveling though Maryland we Stopped at Don's Seafood and Chicken house. We ordered food to go. It was very good. My husband had the fried oyster sandwich and I had the shrimp skins. Don's is on our list of places to stop at when we are in the area.

During a recent lunch stop at Don’s Seafood and Chicken House in Pocomoke, MD, my wife and I made a marvelous discovery: Sweet Potato Smith Island Cake. For those unaware, Smith Island cake is a traditional Maryland dessert (the official State dessert) that originated from the island region of the same name over 100 years ago. This labor-intensive confection features... More

The service was great, the food was great, and we would come back here again. Seafood and burgers were both solid, great local atmosphere, didn't have a better experience in the area during our stay.

I was traveling back to Washington from Norfolk and decided to take a different route. Was in the area and around lunch time. We decided to pull-off and try Don's. As it was a Sunday, they had a special that included a half-pound of shrimp and clams and corn. The only disappointing thing about the meal was the clams. A... More

Seated right away--fairly empty, but it was a week night....maybe should have taken the emptiness as a hint...seemed like a lot of locals liked it tho. Special was steamed shrimp and steamed clams. With Old Bay. The shrimp was good- and fresh, but I guess if a little Old Bay is good, a LOT is better? No, not really. Once... More
