Pleasant

The staff was friendly. The waitress did struggle with are order because of her English language barrier. The wait to get our food was extended even though restaurant was not full & order was very simple. The waitress did bring the kids saltine crackers.

but wasn't so quick. The wait staff was fine but the food took forever to come out (and they weren't that busy). The chatter among the wait staff was annoying and several voices were really loud. When asked about the different food items the word "Sysco" came out most of the time, so think industrial, prepackaged food not fresh scratch... More

Mr. Baldy's is a little out of the way, but it's worth the trip off the main drag. My family enjoyed the food and our waitress was very efficient. The dining room seemed to mostly have locals in it.

It's not a trip to Chincoteague for my family without a stop a Mr. Baldy's. This past year, I developed a gluten and dairy allergy, and the staff made sure that I was able to have a safe breakfast. Thanks!!

We've eaten nice breakfasts at Baldy's for years, so we tried lunch recently. The New England clam chowder was not edible. It actually tasted a bit "off," as if the milk had spoiled. My friend's "creamy" crab soup was mostly flour.

Had a great breakfast. Greeted promptly at the door by wonderful staff. Very many options: Pancakes, waffles, Crepes, eggs to order and combinations of them all. Proportion of food was very large. Highly recommend it for a nice quite fulfilling breakfast.

Enjoyed a quiet family breakfast at Mr. Baldy's. The waitress was quick to take our drink order and gave us ample time to decide on our breakfast selection. We ordered typical breakfast foods: eggs, corn beef hash, bacon, grits. Everything came to the table hot. Our waitress did a great job keeping our drinks filled and checked back with us... More

Almost all the food is pre-cooked and the taste shows that. It probably comes in frozen and in a can, that's how bad it is. Also, the portions are small and way too expensive. I had a small salad and I was very dissappointed. It tasted like plastic. Moreover, I had a burger that was average. If that wasn't bad... More
