Ate here twice during our 6 days in Chincoteague. All you can eat steamed shrimp for $16.95 on Thursdays was fantastic. Shrimp were good size, head off, piping hot, and our server happily brought more, twice. And they don't skimp on seconds and thirds like a lot of AYCE places. Probably got more on my second plate than I did on my first! Scallops were the best I ever had. Hush puppies also. Servers aren't always the most attentive but the dining room is small so it is easy to get their attention. Well worth the 15-minute drive from Chincoteague, and the value is much better than the fancy places on the island.

Best scallops I've had in years. The steamed shrimp were perfectly cooked, too. Service wasn't the best, but who cares with food like that!

On our way to another Restaurant, we passed packed parking lot, so we u-turned to see. Lobby was crowed waiting to get in, dinning area was full, Food was Excellant, Staff Celebrated Mom's 71st Birthday. Needed to Servers, but in spite of, we left with full belly, happy faces and doggie-bags to go!

It is sooo loud in there and our waitress was just plain horrible. The food was just boring and uninspired. Would never, ever go back.
