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

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

$5.00 for a bowl of clam chowder and it was 5 ounces of milk. There were barely any clams or potatoes. No hardiness and very flavorless. It was like drinking a bowl of bad milk; not that we got through two teaspoons before we gave up. We hope we don't get sick and ruin our vacation. The hot roast beef... More

They have a simple menu with all the standards. Fried fish, burgers, chicken fingers, etc. If you're looking for a solid meal for a bunch of folks or kids after a day at the beach this is a safe bet. There are plenty of good restaurants on the island and this is in the middle of the pack. If you... More

My family and I went to Mr. Baldys for dinner after having seafood the previous night because we wanted something different. We ordered sweet tea and it tasted rotten. The fries were dry and the Alfredo sauce left the taste of sour milk in your mouth. There was a quarter sized piece if dirt or chewed up chewing tobacco (did... More
