The food was sooo good that we actually had dinner there 3 times in the 1 week we were there. The shrimp was lightly breaded and so moist and soft. We have never had such good fried shrimp, the surf and turf with the strip steak was delicious. I even had their fried chicken one night..delicious. Price wise in today's... More

Our server made the meal for us (Robbie) as he was a very pleasant young man. We came in while it was busy and had to wait about 20 minutes or so. The back room they put us in was very hot but luckily Robbie noticed it when we sat and turned the air on as he was hot as... More

Steamed and raw Chincoteague oysters, oyster stew, Cesar salad topped with fried oysters, fried oyster sandwiches and entrées. If oysters are your thing, there is no better place to eat! Great service just adds to the perfect place for oysters. Don raises his own, so they are fresh and salty!

Young woman at Best Western said it was her favorite place in town. I ordered the steamed seafood platter (3 kinds of crab, clams, oysters, & shrimp - plus an ear of corn). And the salad bar came with it. So first - the salad bar: pretty normal selections, all fresh and (what I had) tasty. Then there was the... More

Went here just because it was close to our Motel and we heard it was good. I ordered the buffet because it had Chicken and dumplings. They were there when we entered but by the time we were seen by the waitress and I got to the buffet, the C & D was gone and hey did not replenish the... More

Tonight was my boyfriend and I's second time here. He got the surf and turf and I got cream of crab soup and snow crab legs, all very good! Our waitress was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed I'm a timely manner. We will always stop here whenever we're in town! Only petty complaint is the country... More

I started with a dozen raw oysters on the half shell. They were briney and cold, but not served on ice. My entree was fried oysters..... Overcooked and very salty. Chincoteague oysters are briney and don't need much salt in the batter or breading. The salad bar was fresh, but the chowder on the salad bar was nondescript. I couldn't... More

I was looking forward to eating at this restaurant since it is on the waterfront. I was hoping to see a sunset while dining. I had checked the menu on the website and it looked good. When we got to the entrance, we just couldn't support a business with an NRA flag. This may actually entice some customers but not... More

Probably some of the best crab cakes you will find on the island. No filler, all meat... right in town and near city boat docks
