Found Don's for dinner on Friday night around 7:30 and we didn't have to have a reservation, that was great because several other places had no seating. Crab soup was great, service was pleasant, but salad bad was mediocre, and dated facility.

We stopped here on a quick detour over the weekend - nice location and decent food. The oyster stew wasn't my favorite, but I've never had it before, so I didn't have anything to compare with. The staff was very friendly and the crab bisque was really tasty!

The seafood was unbeatable here. Everything we ordered was delicious, well prepared and generous - VERY generous. Service is slow but incredibly warm and inviting. It's an island after all! What's your hurry? The decor is dated but once again it kind of fits the feel of the island.

I had the creamiest crab soup that was smooth & tasty. The chicken wings were crispy & meaty. My husband had the seafood bisque that he enjoyed very much.

Don's is a Chincoteague staple for a less expensive dinner. My fried shrimp were very good - just the right amount of batter. But seriously canned green beans as my veggie and the mashed potatoes were tasty enough but thick enough so your fork would stand up in them. My husband's flounder was nicely cooked. The salad bar is mediocre.... More

No reservations are required here, which is a switch from many of the restaurants. They offered many local seafood dishes. The salad bar was small but exceptional and included two soups.

We could hardly wait to get to the island because we love fresh seafood. Chesapeake Bay is know for it crabs and oysters. Don's is right on main street so once you park you can have dinner and a little shopping as well. The food was wonderful cooked to perfection. It isn't a white tablecloth kind of place put they...
