“A bargain feast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

On the recommendation of Robert Rittenhouse (staying at Rittenhouse Motor Lodge), my companion and I dined at Sting-Ray's. Upon entering, we were a bit apprehensive. There is a 'tourist trap' retail portion and a walk-up counter past it to order your food. We were hungry and trusted Robert, so we stayed.

Good thing we did. The food was very reasonably priced and was absolutely delicious. The servings were quite large. If you are not having some kind of fish - shame on you. The cornbread (more like corncake) was to die for!

We first visited in July, and returned in December.

We will return again. Don't miss Sting-Ray's!

“OK for Land Food Too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This restaurant features seafood dishes, but their land offerings are good too. They didn’t break any culinary ground on the land side of the menu, but the portions were decent for the price and everything we ordered tasted good. Service in the restaurant was friendly, almost fawning. The convenience store didn’t share the same excellence, as a purchase I as I left was handled lethargically.

“Always a pleasure...and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The relaxed atmosphere where you are guaranteed to see a neighbor or a friendly chat with someone passing thru. And you definitely need to ask for Etta!

“Best crab soup- great lil' place on the road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

My family and I travel to VA at least twice a year and we look forward to stopping here as our favorite rest stop of the trip. They have the best crab soup, but know it isn't served all the time! The meals are delicious and inexpensive. This Place should be featured on TripleD- Diners, Drive Thrus and Dives with Guy. Make sure to stop in!
