Don's

Had dinner there a few weeks ago. My wife got the seafood platter and I got the fish of the day and I had a choice of rock or flounder I picked rock. Both dinners included the salad bar and soup with one side. More food than we could eat brought plenty home and everything was very good.

We got into town late Friday night and our hotel recommended Don's Seafood. What a great choice! The best fish and chips I have had in a long time and steamed shrimp was perfectly seasoned with Old Bay and very fresh. It was so good we went back for lunch the next day!

We ate at Don's this weekend because it was recommended by our hotel and only a block away on a cold and rainy night. I started with the cream of crab soup which was a disappointment - it tasted only of the potatoes and no discernable crab flavor. My crab cakes were okay...not much filling but not a lot of... More

So who goes to a seafood restaurant and orders beef? Well, if it's St Patrick's Day and Don's Seafood Restaurant in Chincoteague, Virginia has a corned beef and cabbage special, we do. Don's is right on Main Street in Chincoteague and has a view of the water from upstairs, including several fishing boats. The downstairs area overlooks Main Street and... More

This was the place to eat back in the day. I was embarrassed for recommending it after I went. The staff are friendly. The prices are pretty high for what we received. I ordered oysters were were not done. My wife ordered some type of seafood combination casserole in cheese. That was nasty!. The cheese was like cheese whiz and... More

This little place came recommended by the staff at our hotel. And while the wait staff was friendly, the decorations took me back to when I was a young girl and I was happy to be there...the food left much to be desired. $5 for one trip to the salad bar, which consisted of bagged salad lettuce, cole slaw, onions,...

Don's serves great Chincoteague specialties, and is open year-around. There's usually some entertainment going on upstairs in the bar--while we were there, the sign advertised "line-dancing." Don told us that during the winter months, just about anything goes!

This time of year, your pretty limited on places to eat. Service was good and food was OK. Salad bar is small, but soup was better than expected.

There's not too much open in the winter but there's plenty of room at Don's. We were immediately greeted and taken to our seats. We were there about 3:30 and were followed by four other tables. They have booths and tables, a wood fire place and it overlooks the the main street. A family with 3 kids were there and... More
