“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

This place was not the cleanest, and the waitstaff were rough around the edges but when engaged in conversation they were actually very nice to talk to. The presentation of the food didn't look half as good as the picture shown but honestly it was within walking distance of our hotel and it was delicious and it hit the spot. Nothing fancy, just the basics and we went there twice! Would definitely visit again. The clam chowder was excellent and the oysters were right on!

“Fried Seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

I walked into town and placed an order for the fried seafood platter to go- it was just o.k. Not the best and not the worst - just o.k.

“Chicken & Dumps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My family has been visiting Chincoteague for the past 45 years and Don's has always been what it is...a great locals joint. My friends have a tradition every Sunday after Hoss Pennin to go to Don's and enjoy Chicken & Dumps. Don't miss it! It is a little slice of Teaguer life and definitely worth a visit!

“Terrible RUDE service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

When my friend and I parked at Dons we saw tables and umbrellas outside by the water. We went inside and requested a table outside and were told to go to the window.
We waited at the window several minutes but were completely ignored so I walked to the hostess station again to see how to place our order. She gave me a take out menu and told me to go to the window. I told her we'd been waiting and were ready to place our order. There were at least 5 employees doing nothing at all since it was before 5:00 BUT NO ONE WOULD TAKE OUR ORDER! We had heard that Dons had good food but after going from the hostess station to "the window" several times we gave up and left. Worst.Service.Ever.

“Homey place in downtown Chincoteague, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

We had heard differing views on this restaurant, but we had great food here (excellent clam chowder and shrimp) and there was no wait. Service was very friendly and we could walk from our B&B. Not a lot of good food in Chincoteague. We had tried eating at some places on the road from the bridge to the island to the National Seashore and were very disappointed in their seafood. Don's did not disappoint. It was nice because it was also not in a strip mall environment which nearly all of the other restaurants were.
