“Good place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This place has bars. Families with younger children, please take a note that there are some nights with poker games, drunk men, and etc. Please avoid certain dates.

Further due, I was here 3 days ago. Don is a very kind man. The price is reasonable. It would have been better if some of the waitors/waitresses would chill and relax. They seem to be feeling rushed and scared.

The food is great, crab, excellent. Oysters...eh. very small amount..do not recommend much.
we will be coming back here!

“excellent seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I had soft shell crabs. They were on the small side, but very tasty. My friend had the stuffed shrimp and they were so big, she couldn't eat them all (there were 3 I think). She said they were very good, too. This is a good restaurant to go to before going on a sunset cruise on Captain Dan's Around the Island pontoon since it is right beside the dock where you board.

“Oysters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

.I had fresh oysters and oyster stew - both excellent, although raw oysters were a little smaller than expected, but still tasty.

“It's not fancy, but the seafood is DELICIOUS and reasonable priced!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

If you want a nice view, ask for a table by the window in the front or upstairs facing the water. The place isn't fancy, but the food is EXCELLENT! I highly recommend the shrimp, because they are cooked perfectly to a firm texture and taste like a million dollars worth of salty sweet treasure. My husband LOVES the raw oysters, and he claims they are the finest on this planet. The pesto pizza is also fabulous with a garden fresh flavor, quality cheese, and an extremely palatable crust. This is our favorite place to eat on the island. The prices are good, the kids can find something they like (vegetarian dishes), and the servers are prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable.

“great still”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Don's isn't fancy and their salad bar definitely needs revamping and refreshing but their entrees are priced well and give a nice portion. Their seafood is clean and fresh. Their service is friendly and pretty quick. Steaks were very good.
