“Nice view, food was terrible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

The view and cosiness of his restaurant was great, however the food was awful -the fish, crab cakes, shrimp- all quite bad. This was a huge surprise since it was a seafood restaurant and considered a more upscale restaurant. The hush puppies (complimentary) were actually tasty and wish we got more of those. Definitely cannot recommend.

“Good food, nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

The food here is good. The crab cake portions are large. The server was very attentive. The view of the water is very nice. It is also fun to watch all of the hummingbirds on the deck outside the wall of windows.

“Great restaurant, great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant has one of the best views on the island. It is located on the water with great views of Assateague Island. The seafood is fantastic and the atmosphere is very pleasant. We also had very good service. We had eaten here before several years ago and very anxious to eat here again. Etta's was a must for our return visit to Chincoteage. We had a very enjoyable dining experience just like we did before.

“Etta's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Atmosphere was a bit stuffy for my taste. We were visiting the restaurant after spending time outdoors in the humidity with shorts and tees made to feel underdressed
