Local Place, Friendly Waitress, Food Nothing to Brag About

Took my family to Mr Baldys. The buffalo chicken sandwich was amazing. All our food was good but the best part was our waitress "Stella" she was so pleasant and friendly. on top of our refills and napkins. Stella made great suggestions on what to eat. She was best waitress I've ever had. Thank you Stella, Go to Mr Baldys... More

I wasn't sure about Mr. Baldy's, because its hidden away on a back road and the name doesn't sound super appealing. But what a great little diner! The food was all very fresh, the cheeseburger was fantastic and the waitress was so sweet and attentive. We went back for breakfast the next day. The prices were really fair, and some... More

Tried it several times and service is slow if you aren't a local, food is ok, price is good. Not a big selection but ok if you're looking for something different. Truly not that impressed.

This restaurant was a fun place to dine. Their decor is like the Yellow Submarine and there are lots of pictures of fish painted on the walls, as well as coloring pages and drawings of fish done by children. We enjoyed naming the different types of fish while waiting for our food. There was a great variety of food and... More

We ate here a couple of times. We were greeted by friendly servers. This is an older restaurant and it is out of the way for most of the tourist population. This worked well for us as there was no crowd and we never had to wait to get in or be served. The menu is limited but good. Service... More

Our breakfast for two ended up costing $19.52. Food was ok, service was terrible. Is was like we didn't exist to the server. You get charged for every item you order. One egg $3.00, Bacon $2.50, Homes fries $2.50, Toast $1.50, coffee $1.95. etc, etc. etc. Poor service + high prices = GO ELSEWHERE.

Vacationed on Chincoteague Island last week. Went to Mr. Baldy's for delicious chicken and dumplings on Sunday our first day there. Went back 6 times during the week. Could not pass up the country cooking and the daily specials at reasonable prices. The crab cakes and flounder are fantastic! Mr. Baldy's is on Ridge Road a little out of the... More

Had breakfast on two mornings. Fried eggs, sausage, ham, potatoes - at a reasonable price. Friendly wait staff, quaint and simple diner.

We used to go here almost everyday while on vacation. We haven't been there in years and going again was a mistake. This place has gone way down hill. I had a breakfast sandwich and it was terrible. The service was not that good either. It was mostly foreigner's running the place now, along with the short woman with attitude... More
