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.

Come for the seafood...not for a restaurant. Counter order...no seating. But we did find a small table outside to sit at. Food was fantastic! Soft shell crabs just like grandma used to make. Fried oysters...divine.

Went for lunch. Had a fried oyster sandwich. It was outstanding. Briny and fresh! Great French fries also. Went back for dinner takeout. Scallops were outstanding but the fried clams were a little overlooked and tough. Great corn on the cob and hush puppies. Make sure you go here!
