I am not a big fan of fried food. So, if I'm going to eat some, it better be pretty darn good. This food is beyond good. It is outrageous. They brag about having the best crab cakes on the island. And, the crab cakes are worthy of their hype. No filler, just crab meat and seasoning, really tasty. But,... More

We vacation in Chincoteague often and have eaten out lots but Capt Zack's is by far our favorite. We'd rather get carry-out here and take it home because the food is so exceptional. Fresh, well-prepared, fairly priced. The kids insist and we agree!

Really enjoyed the food here at Captain Zack's . Enjoyed the sandwiches, the platters, really everything. Eating area is outside on picnic tables but we always took the food home.

Hot, fresh seafood! They could spruce up the picnic area a little, but I guess it goes with the "fresh off the boat" atmosphere. Good selection, well priced, quickly prepared. Drop a tidbit or two for the cat.

I pick out my seafood ... ask for a sprinkling of spice ... and they grill it up to perfection. I go at least once to twice a week. That is how good the food is! My favorite side order is the broccoli. You get a huge bunch; steamed to perfection. I just tried their steamed shrimp recently...oh my, so... More

This was our 3rd visit to Chincoteague this year and we always get food from Captain Zacks. Each time we think that it can't get better but it does--or maybe that we just get something different each time. Everything we have had has been excellent. Shrimp, crab, flounder, clams, scallops -- all wonderful. Highly recommend. Don't be fooled by the... More

We had never been to Chincoteague before and heard about Captain Zack's from a couple we met on one of the boat tours. It is more of a take-out or sit at their picnic table place. BUT the food was the best we tried on the island. We had never had oysters before and once we tried one, we were... More

I ordered the crab balls and shrimp with cheese. Both were really good. Call first before you pick up.

Very good Flounder and fries meal, Crab cake sandwich was just OK, you would think in a town known for crabs it would be close to fresh, more like Mrs. Paul's pre formed. We sat outside and ate, feral cats and seagulls begged for scraps. Make sure if you feed them anything, it is right before you are finished as... More
