Don't order them often but I sure made the right choice here. Asked for the hollandaise on the side. It, too, very yummy. I'd do it the same next time. Sides and bread good. I was by myself and in no hurry. Went early (5:30) to try to be ahead of the crowd, as I sensed might be the case since all area hotels opened were booked or nearly booked (yes late Feb in little old' Chincoteague with Main Street torn up & and businesses closed!). No matter how much I attempted to slow down the pace, soon my small table was covered with plates. Oh well, I will still go back. Too good!

Yes, the food is delicious, beautifully prepared and served. The seafood appetizers, salads, and breads are great.

The seafood and meat entrees are of a very nice proportion, and should be for the price! $19-28 for seafood and upper $20s for meat. $27 for pork osso bucco.

The desserts are huge and awesome: $6-$8.

The service was very friendly and professional.

Hmm, guess good food here comes with "big city" prices.

This is NOT a casual seafood restaurant for the average family of four.

The restaurant is one of the few choices in the winter months. However, its a nice place, and the food was pretty good. We had fried oysters and clams casino for appetizers, the oysters were great, but the clams casino were poorly done. The clams were tiny, and they were smothered w spongy breadcrumbs, a waste of $12. Had the filet and sea scallops as entrees. Both were good, the filet was perfect, and melted in your mouth. Glad we went overall.

I had dinner here on a business trip. Food was good for the price. The area does not offer much in the way of dining and this is definitely the best.

Many of the restaurants on the island close for the winter season. This one stays open for the season and is very busy (reservations highly recommended). Service was friendly, reservation was honored within five minutes (many tables came free at once at that delayed time). Good diverse crowd. Unfortunately, I was hoping for a better food offering. I'd stay clear of the onion soup (not hearty enough, bread a bit soggy), the filet of beef was not up to the price (though fine for chain restaurant). Good sized portion of the seafood pasta. Oyster app was fine.
