Young woman at Best Western said it was her favorite place in town. I ordered the steamed seafood platter (3 kinds of crab, clams, oysters, & shrimp - plus an ear of corn). And the salad bar came with it. So first - the salad bar: pretty normal selections, all fresh and (what I had) tasty. Then there was the... More

Went here just because it was close to our Motel and we heard it was good. I ordered the buffet because it had Chicken and dumplings. They were there when we entered but by the time we were seen by the waitress and I got to the buffet, the C & D was gone and hey did not replenish the... More

Tonight was my boyfriend and I's second time here. He got the surf and turf and I got cream of crab soup and snow crab legs, all very good! Our waitress was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed I'm a timely manner. We will always stop here whenever we're in town! Only petty complaint is the country... More

I started with a dozen raw oysters on the half shell. They were briney and cold, but not served on ice. My entree was fried oysters..... Overcooked and very salty. Chincoteague oysters are briney and don't need much salt in the batter or breading. The salad bar was fresh, but the chowder on the salad bar was nondescript. I couldn't... More

I was looking forward to eating at this restaurant since it is on the waterfront. I was hoping to see a sunset while dining. I had checked the menu on the website and it looked good. When we got to the entrance, we just couldn't support a business with an NRA flag. This may actually entice some customers but not... More

As the owner of Don's and a member of the NRA, and I am glad you had the right to "choose" not to visit Don's. The NRA works to protect the rights of all people- members or not. I was your choice to- visit or not to- and I will continue to work to protect that freedom ; it doesn't... More

Probably some of the best crab cakes you will find on the island. No filler, all meat... right in town and near city boat docks

Let me start with the positive! Dons is convenient and has parking. Other then that it's all negative. We waited way to long for waitress to approach. When she did we were told they were overwhelmed( why is that our problem). I had in edible soft shell crab with uh cooked zucchini and asparagus. Hubby had salad bar if you... More

I wouldn't recommend this place based on the food. Mashed potatoes tasted like the powdered instant kind. I had their special- the seafood dream which was tiny bits of scallops tiny little shrimp and pieces of crab smothered in mozzarella cheese. It was disgusting. Others in the party had steak, cream of crab soup and crab cakes and everyone said... More

If you dine at this restaurant, you can bring your own wine for a $10 cork fee, and if you care what you drink, that's what you should do. They have a wine list of their own but . . . If you know about the wine in advance, the food at Don's is pretty good. We didn't know and... More
