We volunteered to host a family gathering which we thought would be about 8 to 10 folks. When the family found out it was happening in Chincoteague, it grew to 20 +. We called up Don's Seafood to let them know that are small dinner party of about 10 had now doubled. They were able to accommodate us all with... More

I would probably consider this diner type eating. Service was slow, and there were a lot of customers complaining about it. But everyone was pleasant, and our food was good when we got it. I have never tasted better shrimp. And drinks were very reasonable. I think a glass of house wine was 3.50. We would go again, just not... More

We stopped by for lunch at Don's Seafood after our Chincoteague Island Cruise. We both ordered the fish chowder which was loaded with baby scallops, shrimp, fish and crab meat, delicious. My husband had the flounder sandwich and I had the clam strip basket. Our server was friendly and efficient. There were few restaurants open in the middle of October... More

2nd year in a row that we visited with a large group. And 2nd year in a row that the red-headed daughter had an attitude. We visited again to show grace b/c we are human and can have bad days. However, I can't believe she had an attitude AGAIN... Wont try again.

We are here for lunch. The place was packed so we decided we should eat there! The food is very good but the place is a dirty. That's why only 4 stars. We would eat here again when visiting the island.

Have been here several times....in season and "off" season. Went again this past weekend with family. The crab balls are always good. I got the fried seafood platter, which is slightly smaller than most places (it's also a few bucks cheaper), but still plenty of food. It came with flounder, clam strips, oysters, scallops, shrimp and a crab cake. I... More

We went to dinner with family. I got cream of crab soup and caesar salad topped with fresh crabmeat. The crabmeat was very fresh tasting. Service was good.

Well now that things have settled down and all of the relatives have headed back north because school has resumed. My sweetheart and I decided to give Dons Seafood a try at lunch time. It's nicely, nautical fashioned with a decent soup and salad bar. Waitstaff are good BUT when we saw the menu prices we decided on the soup... More

Not what you would expect from a shoreline restaurant. The portions were small and 3 of the 4 meals were not worth the price they charged, way over priced. Clams were over cooked and very tough, the fresh fish had no flavor at all and the crab legs were over cooked (soft) to the point were you had to use... More
