Very good chipped beef with potatoes for breakfast. Great specials of the day for dinner. Check out the Octopus garden on the wall.

Scrambled eggs were diced up and when I asked about the grits they were only instant ones. I probably won't go back just because it was average food.

This little gem is nothing super special, but we always eat here at least once when we are on the island. If you are looking for inexpensive, family dining that has a little bit of everything, Mr. Baldy's is a great place to stop.

Mr. Baldy's Restaurant is worth visiting but off the beaten path. I have been to Chincoteague Island many, many times but this is my first visit to Mr. Baldy's. My sister and I LOVED our dinner. It is not a fancy restaurant and is not on a busy street, but it IS worth finding and enjoying a quiet, delicious, reasonably... More

Stopped in for lunch thinking we would get some local food instead of hitting McDonald's or Subway. The place was empty at 1PM. That should have been a clue. We ordered a burger, a bacon cheeseburger & 2 fish and chips along with 4 drinks. The burgers were unseasoned and only came with potato chips for $7 & $9 respectively.(should... More

Stopped by for lunch as we were looking for an affordable family restaurant. The staff was friendly albeit we interupted the lunch they were eating in the dining room. Don't order the seafood and expect fresh. The fish sandwich, clam strips and shrimp were all frozen from a box. While economically priced, we did not feel we even got what... More

Food is ok, service was slow but they were busy... Today is the annual pony swim so the town is FULL of tourists like ourselves. Prices aren't bad and seating was adequate. A/C didn't seem to be all that cool to me.

Our first night on the island and hotel directed us to a restaurant that was going to be over $100 for our family of four. So we drove around and found Mr Baldy's. The food was good and very reasonably price. The waitress was very friendly and the food came out quickly.

The food was ok.. Until my dad ordered the fish and chips. Being along the ocean, one would expect some great fish.. What he got was 3 triangle fish sticks straight out of the Capt. Highliner's box.
