At dinner, the Crabmeat appetizer was good. The onion soup looked and tasted like gravy. The clam chowder was also cornstarch. Wine list is short. At breakfast the omelets were substantial and the grits and potatoes and bread were just like a family diner. My niece wanted a ham biscuit and she was told that one table had just ordered... More

God is wonderful! They have seafood, main dishes and sandwiches. This is for dinner. Can't go wrong with lunch or breakfast either.

Thank you Russ the chef for the fantastic soft shell crabs and scallops so big and tasty! Service was good and the whole staff is very friendly. We also got a baked Alaskan for a treat after and was delicious! Little place right inside the hotel but also separate street entry. The owner makes the salad dressing which was quite... More

Oh my goodness, beautiful view and friendly staff. Started with perfectly prepared soft shell crabs and the largest steamed clams I have seen in a long time. Looking forward to the seafood platter conning up in the next course.

We went here to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. Excellent meal and staff was very attentive. Our waitress was fun and made sure our dinner was to our liking. The hostess noticed that we clicked glasses and congratulations on our anniversary. At the end of the meal they brought out a baked Alaska with extra forks to complete our celebration. What... More

This restaurant is only open in the evening. In the morning and lunch hours it is run by another restaurant. So I am only referencing the evening. They serve the Best soft shell crabs as well as Lobster Den Bien. The food is excellent! However their is no atmosphere and the place. The food is worth the trip.

The morning we went was very busy, we had a bit of a wait for service which we did not mind as we could see everyone was working very hard. Once we ordered we figured it may take a little bit to get our food, but we did not know that while waiting we have to sit and listen to... More

I love DOY breakfast, especially The York special before 9 a.m. Get the hash browns...yum!! It includes coffee or tea. I just enjoy the family atmosphere, looking out onto the York river...peaceful.
