The sleeper in Chincoteague! We had lunch and were really pleased with the experience. The orange crushes were made with Stoli and were perfect. Our server was a delight. She knew the menu. Made recommendations and provided great service.! We had steamed oysters and fresh rock fish. All was cooked beautifully. It so easy to over steam oysters. These were... More

Always eat here when on Chincoteague. Oysters are a must on your visit though the stuffed flounder is massive and tasty. Local waitresses add a dash of saltiness to your dinning experience and that's usually a bonus! Chattie's Lounge/Bar is upstairs while Don's is downstairs. Located right on Main Street, this restaurant is one of the best on the island.

This is our second visit to Don's, a reasonably priced seafood house with GREAT food... The Clam/ Shrimp steamed platter was great as usual, and while many restaurants seem to be steering away from serving Scallops, Don's has them and does them up right!...we'll be back....

We stayed on the island recently for a family getaway and ate dinner one night at Don's. Even though it was off season, the place was busy but staff was still attentive. Food was good - only one problem but the staff took the meal off the bill. Try the Fisherman's Stew. It is very good.

We stopped here to grab something for lunch and were not disappointed. Prices were reasonable, service was good and friendly, and the food was good. I had the crab cake with crackers, DH had the grilled chicken sandwich which came with good chips with old bay seasoning and we split a yummy serving of fries. My crab cake was very... More

Long wait for service with a restaurant barely half full. Food was sub par. Roast beef was tough as shoe leather. Unable to eat. Burger was ok. Fries were ok. Scallop dinner was 5 scallops and some fries. Waitress was very out of sorts

One of the best dining spots in Chincoteague, very relaxed casual dining, ample parking & convenient location. I had great fish & chips (cod) and a Yuengling while my wife had scallops, both nicely cooked and served. Place seemed popular with parents with younger children and other local patrons acquainted with the staff, who were very cordial with everyone. Great... More

We've eaten here twice over 3 years and both times the service was fair at best and the food marginal. Salad bar was nasty, bits of some food in other containers, weary lettuce with spoiled spots, just not appetizing. Seafood is average, not really well prepared. Much better options at the beach, chose one of them!

I read a lot of mixed reviews about this place but decided to give it a try anyway. My and my husband visited here on our birthdays. It is a nice size facility, but the seating upstairs doesn't have the view I was hoping for. The staff was great and helpful and offered us diff suggestions on what to order.... More
