First off - the busboy & the waitress were wonderful. Busy, and understaffed, but wonderful. She did forget our sides but we were stuffed so it didn't matter. However, the hostess was horribly rude and completely uninformative, deficit of knowledge clearly, there is no place to stand and wait for your table except for in a dirty hallway while you... More

Waitress was friendly, helpful and very apologetic. The crab stuffing was gritty and we brought to her attention. She wanted to make it up to us, but we just want the cook so a new batch could be made before someone else got it. What we ordered was plenty filling and we didn't want anything else. Prices were fair, establishment... More

After our walk around the Wildlife Loop on Assateague Island, we were ready for lunch. We stopped at Don's in town, because a lot of the restaurants are not open for lunch and we don't do fast food. Service was great and drinks were tasty. The cream of crab soup did not delight us, but our sandwiches were good. Would... More

Stick to the basics at Don's-we had lunch here and not too much to write about. Maybe recommend selecting items not needing a lot of preparation. Very small salad bar.

The good news first- although I was truly frightened of our bartender, our drinks, a patron margarita and an absolute martini, were good and very reasonably priced. The bad news- I love oysters. I ordered a half dozen. Three were okay and three were bad, barely existing on the shell. My wife had the scallop and bacon app. It tasted... More

We ate at Don's (on Main Street) our first night on-island, and were disappointed. The seafood was overgrilled/overfried, and the side dishes were straight from a can/box (e.g. instant mashed potatoes). By contrast, AJ's properly cooks fresh seafood, which is what you'd expect on the Eastern Shore.

My husband and I like to ask locals where's the place to eat. The front desk clerk at our Hotel recommended Don's. We were pleasantly surprised. My husband ordered oysters, steamed and fried. He loved them!! Not only were they cheaper than most offerings from other establishments, when I asked him to describe them to me he said "the fried... More
