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

I went to the salad bar, where they also offered soup, but I couldn't tell what was in the soup pots, so I avoided it. I had... More

I have been going to Don's every night from Monday to Thursday for dinner for the past two years. I usually eat at the bar and the food is great with the exception of the occasion bad Porterhouse Steak. The service and attitude is fantastic when Harley and Skyler are working and still great with Josh and Lizzy. I have... More

We visited Chincoteague during the winter when only 4 restaurants were open, but we were certainly not disappointed! A short walk from our hotel, we had dinner twice at Don's and were pleasantly surprised both times. The crab cakes and prime rib were to die for. If bar food is more your speed, the clam strips were delicious and the... More

Great raw bar and perhaps the best oyster stew on island, steamed shrimp, clams, and oysters are always great and available, open even in off season

Off season so there weren't many choices for dining. Very average and somewhat overpriced for food selections.

Not great seems like it is. A bit behind the times food in baskets with average service and small portions you can skip this place and be happy you did
