Food was very good and great wine selection. Very pleased with the atmouphere and service. The Chicken Oscar was delicious. My husband and I were there for a short business/pleasure trip and we will be sure to eat here the next chance we get. Great bar and bourbon selection.

Superb, Outstanding, Delicious, need we say more. The soft crabs were the best I have had. The crab cakes were also a big hit in our party of 12. The shrimp appetizer wrapped in potato strings is a must.. The service overall experience was delightful.

Who knew there would be such a fabulous restaurant in the middle of a laid back seaside town! The food was so delicious that we ate here two nights for dinner. The décor was beautiful and the menu had an excellent variety. Everything from the appetizer to the dessert and espresso was wonderful. Service was good both nights and we... More

The Charlotte provided a perfect honeymoon and 70th birthday experience for us. The Chincoteague oysters for me and steak for my wife were the best we've ever had and the wine was superb. My pistachio ice cream was both light and rich with lots of nuts. It came topped with a hand-lettered "Happy Birthday!" banner and candle. We sat next... More

We were staying at a local B&B and a number of guest recommended this to us. They had a special menu for Valentine's Day with some great choices. We each had an appetizer (he had the shrimp wrapped in potato and I had the salad with strawberries & blue cheese) and main course was the filet minion and the eggplant... More

Thank you for the lovely comments! The eggplant is a family recipe that has been around for over 40 years and is a crowd favorite whenever it is on the menu. Please join us again.... More

My husband and I typically go here to birthdays,etc. And sometimes just because! We've never had a bad meal here and we go at least 4 or 5 times a year. I like the way the menu changes with the seasons and for variety sake. Pleasant atmosphere and good service.

We were visiting Onancock by boat with friends. They selected the restaurant having heard great reviews about it. It is within easy walking distance of the public docks. Every thing about it was first rate - menu, service, ambiance. Would definitely return there when visiting Onancock (a charming little village on the eastern shore of Virginia).

The award-winning restaurant features cuisine that is prepared using many Eastern Shore products. It is with great pride that we support local watermen, farmers, and area businesses. Because much of our fare is made from locally available ingredients, the menu changes frequently, often daily. Everything is house-made, including the ice cream! Our bar is well stocked, and the extensive wine list offers selections from around the world.
