Excellent

Enjoyed the good service and great food. I tried the Seafood Dream as I thought it was something different and it was very tasty. Lovely atmosphere, not too loud as some places can be.

We thought with a name like Don's Seafood that this place would have excellent seafood. We were very disappointed. The crab imperial did not have jumbo lump crab meat and was somewhat dry. It did not have the creamy imperial sauce on top that most crab imperial has. I am from Baltimore so we know how to steam crabs and... More

I got a 10% off coupon for this restaurant from the Virginia Visitor Center. Don's was also one of the few restaurants open during the off season. I ordered the seafood platter to go. The fish and chips were very tasty. The fish was not overcooked. The scallops and shrimp were good as well. The clams were fine. I did... More

Staff is super friendly, the food is tasty and reasonably priced - a huge bonus in a tourist town. Don's doesn't offer a view of the water from the dining room, but is conveniently located near Church St so you can enjoy some of the historic buildings of the island.

We stopped by Don's for lunch and ordered the special of the day - Drum Fish. We both ordered it Blackened, following the recommendation of the server. Drum is a mild fish with a great taste of it's own. Blackened, it was very good and properly cooked. We frequent Don's when dining out for lunch. The specials are always good... More

We had all you can eat clam and shrimp. Very good and fresh! The owner found out we were celebrating our anniversary and sent out a piece of smith island cake. The food was so good we could understand why the restaurant was running full capacity in off season. Also the locals we talked to recommended dons.

We arrived late. About 10 min til closing. We place our order and the food they served was great. They took good care of us even though they really didn't have to even seat us.

Really enjoyed our meal (at a reasonable price) and the waitress was very nice! Had the Surf & Turf with salad bar and a HUGE piece of cheesecake for dessert.

The oysters were recommended and they were very good. My seafood platter was huge and it was enough for 2 meals. The salad bar appeared fresh and was very good as well. The place was packed and our server was great despite running her legs off!
