The waitress was very slow and almost nonexistent. She served our drinks in small glasses, the same as what my 9 year old's milk came in, this was very weird. The place has a stale, old smell with a hint of cigarett. The oyster sandwich was decent, but a little small; no hint of cajun flavor on the cajun potato... More

The food was delicious, the Bloody Mary was perfect, and the staff was wonderful. Everyone visiting the Island should most definitely eat here.

The food was very good; we had the oysters, calamari and shrimp.... Great seafood .. The restaurant was clean and organized.... The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the different menu items as well as the area in general.... I will go there again next time I visit Chincoteague on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Virginia

We first came in for lunch and had some fresh, really delicious oysters. We decided to come back for dinner on the same day and boy was that the best decision we made. We ate the delmonico steak and to be honest that was one of the best steak I've had. Perfectly seasoned, juicy and every bite was just an... More

I really enjoy the lunch specials at this restaurant. They have a daily special at an inexpensive price that changes every day and every week. Also a senior menu with the same great selections but just a smaller portion. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is casual with a view of the Creek.

Arrived with family from Germany after a drive down from Delaware for lunch at 2p.m. The crab cakes were wonderful as were the entire meals. The surprise was the desert of Key Lime Pie which was enjoyed by all. The dining room was well appointed, cozy and peaceful after the drive. Everything was clean especially the rest rooms. Being just... More

Don’t bother with this one – absent service, boring food, warm beer. Much better places down the road a few miles. Yawn…
