The service was not great. The food even worse. The sausage gravy was so salty you couldn't eat it. The toast was burnt on my sons sandwich. Not a great experience! Highly Recommend Mr. Pauls Kitchen!

Another place that is a must when on the island! Not on main drag but definitely worth going to. This place is never packed when we've gone...but the food is delicious!! Everything from meatloaf to fried chicken, subs to seafood. Waitress was very pleasant.

My main complaint was they were toooo slow with service. There were only a couple people there plus us 4 and it took forever to get our food. It was average food. I don't think I would stop in again because of the service. The staff said because we ordered the fried chicken, it would take 20 extra minutes. What's... More

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.
