The food is OK, but the service was slow and there is nothing special about the atmosphere. You can do better on the island for about the same money.

I've been to Don's at least once per trip during all four of my Chincoteague trips over the past decade. Tonight we wanted to get steamed crabs, and this seemed like the place to do it because neither my mom or I wanted all you can eat or all of the sides but we didn't want to go buy the... More

This place offers upstairs dining overlooking the water and most of the seafood is fresh from the bay. Very hometown feel and quick friendly service.

We are lunch here on a Sunday and were disappointed by the food. The shrimp fettuccine Alfredo was very disappointing, the salad bar was unappetizing, and the fried shrimp entree was overpriced. The quality of the fried shrimp and fried scallops good, but we would not eat here again. The interior of the restaurant was rather outdated and a bit... More

We went to Don's on our last night on the island and had a wonderful meal. I had the Breaded shrimp and steamed clams. The clams were excellent. The service was great. Daughter had the NY strip and it was cooked to perfection and tasted great. I know there are a lot of negative reviews about "Double tipping" On several... More

We have been eating at Don's Seafood since 1993 every time we visited Chincoteague. Although they have recently renovated the restaurant, it remains a simple place with a simple but excellent menu. Everything is and has always been consistently delicious. Their signature preparation (flounder stuffed with crab meat) is superb and the raw clams and oysters are to die for.... More

Don's is a no-frills family restaurant. It serves mainly seafood, with a few meat and chicken dishes. We had the oysters, raw and fried. The raw oysters came on a cafeteria tray - icy cold, sweet and briny. The best oysters I have had in years - and definitely the best on the island (and we had many excellent ones).... More

This resta was highly recommended by a friend and ourvmotel staff. Was expecting much better meal. Service was poor, but appeared to be isolated to our server. Food was not hot when it came to our table but server didn't come back for a long time after serving. We ate what we could. Shrimp in Alfredo were cold and were... More

Food was awesome, service was great, been coming here for about 7 years. When we go to diner it can vary from 7-15 people. Was there this past week, ate there 3 times, then someone pointed out to me that the tip was included. I tip a minimum of 20% all my bills were in the 300$ range. So i... More
