The wait staff and owner were friendly, helpful and accommodating. I wished the menu had specified which vegetables were in their pasta, but I didn't ask before ordering.

The service was excellent but the food and amount exceeded what I would have expected from the look of the restaurant from the outside. More than enough in portion size, seafood was fresh & price was more than reasonable. I ate there for two dinners & would have gone again if my stay was longer. I will definitely go back... More

Great Experience! This was a truly great experience that should be repeated every year. I am going to tell all of my friends and family that they must come and enjoy Chincoteague!

Very classy yet casual. Some of the best seafood I have had and I have had a lot. Service great. Hotel told us it was best in town. I agree.

Ask for a seafood restaurant and local hotels will direct you to Bill's Restaurant or Don's Seafood Restaurant, both on Main Street. (They also suggest a non-seafood place, Maria's Restaurant What's with the boring copy cat restaurant names?.) We ended up at Don's. It's location in the center of town on the water is nice as is the oyster shell... More

Don's under delivered. We had six in our party and none were impressed except one in our party who loved the mother duck and brood of ducklings at the front door. We each had different seafood offerings and none were memorable. I had blackened drum, my wife had fish and chips, others had fried oysters, crab cakes, scallops and broiled... More

We went our first night because of walking distance from our hotel.I had the fried oyster basket & hubby had the fried scallop basket.My oysters were delicious but I was jealous because his scallops were even better.Went back 2nd night and ordered scallop dinner for both of us!

We were looking for a place for dinner and decided on this place. There is a wide variety of food, although the seafood platter I ordered was gigantic. My wife got scallops, and my son had fettucini alfredo with shrimp and scallops. My daughter had a kid's meal choice. Nothing special, but worth trying.

Enjoyed several visits here for lunch - love their New England Clam Chowder. You can sit downstairs and watch the activity along Main Street or, if the upstairs is open, enjoy a water view of Chincoteague Channel and the causeway from the back side of the restaurant. Good service and good location right in the center of town.
