Delicious chowder, nice location

Had dinner here with my husband based on a recommendation from the staff at the front desk of our hotel. It was a good recommendation. Don's is located on the main street in Chincoteague.

I'm a General Manager of a restaurant in Columbia, MD, and have been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years, much of which was spent in Maryland-based, family-owned, seafood restaurants. I went here for dinner at the suggestion of an employee at my hotel. I took my two children and after being sat, presently waited for well over 10... More

Busy place, excellent crab soup. Can eat upstairs over looking the bay. Salad bar needs some work. Very small with limited items.

If you are looking for a "meat and potatoes" approach to seafood, Don's is your best option. Don't isn't the fanciest atmosphere, nor does it have the most exquisite menu. They offer a wide variety of seafood prepared in various ways. I ordered their crab cakes and they were very good. My husband ordered the fried shrimp and he was... More

We ate here 7/21 and 7/22. This is a typical seafood house restaurant--with a difference that bumped it up a few notches. Although they were very busy, we were seated in just a few minutes. The attitude of the staff was welcoming (as compared to some places that make you feel they are doing you a favor by letting you... More

The food was ok. We did enjoy our meal but it seems to be on the expensive side. They were extremely busy and the service was a bit slow.

Don's is old and tired. The wait staff is efficient, but lacks spirit. The food is adequate, but uninspired.The décor looks like it came out of a 1940's black and white photo. The guy from "Restaurant Rescue" would have a ball in this place - and Don's would be re-born. It deserves better than what it is.

Don's seafood is conveniently located on the main street just over the bridge. The good news about Don's is that the seafood is excellent. The crab in the crab salad we had was fresh and light and purely good. The 'crab balls' were excellent small deep fried crab cakes in the shape of a doughnut hole. The fried oysters were... More

The evening that we were there service was a little slow, but the food was good. The have good seafood, but also other dishes for the non-seafood-lovers.
