Don's is the best seafood on the island

This was our four time here. It is my family's favorite seafood restaurant on the island. We always request a table upstairs with a view of the water. The food and service is always very good. I personally was not impressed with my seafood alfredo this time, but everyone else loved their meal. My... read more

We visit here each year for the past 3 years. This time the poritions were much smaller and the food was not hot when it reached the table. Will spend $$ elsewhere next time

Crab cakes were dry. Fish was delicious, but sides were over cooked and bland. The place needs freshening up in a bad way!

Worst restaurant east of the Mississippi! I walk in and all I see is flies on the walls with all the people in the restaurant coughing or sneezing or picking the nose. My menu was crusted with dirt and I couldn't trust the food due to the menu names! Really! Crab Ballz???? Made my 16 hour trip down to Virginia... More

First of all they took my phone number to call us when a table was ready...it took us going to them to ask if our table was ready to finally seat us. Food was pricey for the quality. The prime melt sandwich was nothing more than burnt steak ums on a hot dog bun that was cold. The pizza came... More

Steamed shrimp were very good and oyster sandwich was great; crabcakes were OK (they had a lot of breading in them); staff very friendly & helpful. Prices were very reasonable and the view of the harbor was really nice.

We enjoyed our meal at Don's, It is not as upscale as some on the island but it was comfortable and the food was good. We enjoyed sipping cocktails while watching the sun set, The local oysters were great.
