We got half a bushel of steamed spiced crabs and 2 pounds of steamed spiced jumbo shrimp and it was sooo worth it. The seafood was hot and ready to pick up on time. I did have to call at 1pm on the day of pickup to place my order and make sure there were enough crabs coming off the... More

Fresh seafood. Dinners are a good value. Crabcakes are not good...stick to the steamed seafood. Very busy place so call your order ahead of time.

The fresh food and large quantities with the accompanying excellent prices made up for the service. Had take out clams. The onion rings were some of the best I ever had.

The food here is good but it is not enough to compensate for the poor service. This place is in the middle of nowhere and I'll be professional and not mention a certain movie mentioning an actor from Waycross, but some customer service skills wouldn't hurt. I ordered a flounder and crabcake dinner and yes it was plentiful, good and... More

Went here based on a recommendation. Ordered two dinner platters. One scallops (delicious) and the other crab cakes (great taste). Each platter comes with your choice of fries, onion rings or hushspuppies. AND you get two sides and fruit. The day we ordered the sides included corn, pasta salad and watermelon. Gary Howard gives you great value for your money.

This is the place to go to get your fresh seafood when you are planning to stay home and cook. It is a treasure! It's really just a little house, so if you were driving by, you might not recognize how amazing it is.The service is great and you will be out of there without a wait.

The best chincoteague oysters available. He offers other seafood as well and also can purchase ready to eat seafood. We have dealt here past many years, for freshest seafood and most helpful service.

We always call here for our steamed crab order. Never been disappointed. They're good flavor, heavy and ready when you ask for them.
