Had an delicious family meal. The dishes were large portions, salad bar featured a great seafood gumbo. The prices were far.

“This place feels like where the locals go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

I've been to Don's at least once per trip during all four of my Chincoteague trips over the past decade. Tonight we wanted to get steamed crabs, and this seemed like the place to do it because neither my mom or I wanted all you can eat or all of the sides but we didn't want to go buy the mallets and crackers to do them at a takeout place. So we ordered a dozen crabs, a basket of onion rings, and a couple cokes. The crabs were a nice size, warm when we started, there was lemon, and butter. The onion rings were fresh, not frozen and had a yummy breading that wasn't too crummy. The waiter was great too. Will definitely go back to Don's for something else, this week, probably crabcakes and drinks. The crabs were $36 for a dozen, so $3 a piece, and the bill came to $42 including the cokes and onion rings which was a nice size meal for smaller appetites.

“Reasonable and delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

This place offers upstairs dining overlooking the water and most of the seafood is fresh from the bay. Very hometown feel and quick friendly service.

“Outdated - but decent seafood.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We are lunch here on a Sunday and were disappointed by the food. The shrimp fettuccine Alfredo was very disappointing, the salad bar was unappetizing, and the fried shrimp entree was overpriced. The quality of the fried shrimp and fried scallops good, but we would not eat here again. The interior of the restaurant was rather outdated and a bit shabby. The service was good.

“Worth the visit, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

We went to Don's on our last night on the island and had a wonderful meal. I had the Breaded shrimp and steamed clams. The clams were excellent. The service was great. Daughter had the NY strip and it was cooked to perfection and tasted great. I know there are a lot of negative reviews about "Double tipping" On several pages of the menu there in BOLD lettering it says that on party's of 6 or more 18% gratuity is added to your bill. I believe it is both fault of the servers for not mentioning and the customer for not reading it on the menu. Looking forward to going back to Don's when we are back in town.
