You can't beat fresh ingredients and food prepared with precision. The sandwiches are hands down the best I've ever eaten. I always make it a point to visit this establishment when in Chincoteague. The owner's passion for food done the right way is evident in every item being served!

My favorite place for lunch on Chincoteague. Freshly made bread like the whole grain baguettes and loads of options for vegetarians make this a must for me. Portions are generous and the salads are fabulous.

Great creative sandwiches, including a build-your-own option. My husband the vegetarian found choices and so did this carnivore (on a restricted diet). We liked it so much, we bought more for dinner.

After seeing the great reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to stop here. We were not dissapointed. My wife had the daily special (grilled chicken) and I had a roast beef sandwich. Both were delicious, freshly made, and in large portions.With each sandwich being custom made, there can be a wait, especially at meal times, but it is worth it.

We had eaten here on a visit to the island last year and couldn't wait to go back. This is a small place with outdoor tables and benches. You order at the window and they call you when it is ready. On a sunny spring day this was perfect! Our sandwiches were fantastic! I had some kind of vegetarian with... More

We have been visiting Chincoteague since the 1980's, almost annually. Coming prior to the full summer season, it can be challenging to find restaurants open mid-week. The Sea Star met that requirement, at least Thursday through Sunday this time of year (early May). We had just come off the refuge on our bicycles and were looking for a change of... More

Found this gem on the way to the beach. Sandwiches, wraps, soups, desserts. Vegan friendly! Sandwiches where generous size, making this an excellent value. Takeout only.

I am the friend that was scolded by an employee young enough to be my granddaughter in the review below. I am a very mellow person who doesn't let most things bother me but it took all the restraint I had to not send her to her room for not showing respect to a paying customer. Interesting that she didn't... More

We took a break from birdwatching to get a sandwich, intending to return and eat at the beach in our car. Then we were very hungry and they have a few tables near a pond so we decided to stay and eat there. It was very chilly in the shade of the umbrella, so I (a 71 year old woman)... More
