My wife and I love this place, just about everything is scratch made and fresh as could be. The seafood is outstanding. I am not an oyster lover, I will eat them if the dish is right but we can't come to this island not get an oyster Po Boy or my wife also loves the scallop poboy. It's small... More

I go to Chincoteague 2 times a year usually. And each time I say..Not gonna eat at Zachs every night. Yeah...I usually eat at Famous one night. But the rest of the time it is take out from Zachs. Is it really that much more pricey than the rest of the island? Nope. Of course, if you go on Pony... More

Stopped here for a late lunch after walking on the beach. Many places in town were closed for the season but at Capt. Zack's we were met by super-friendly staff who quickly explained specials, took our order and within 10 minutes we had HUGE sandwiches of fresh tuna and mahi that had been grilled, along with large portions of french...

You just cannot beat the quality of this little takeout seafood, cooked to order or raw, it is all excellent. The only drawback is visiting off season, they are closed so call ahead. During the summer there is outdoor seating and games for the children. Beverages are non alcoholic, portions are generous.

Our favorite place to eat on the island. Best fried oysters ever! Also love, love, love the lobster bisque. Everything is delicious. Place your order, sit on the bench outside till your name is called or play games, then eat on one of the picnic tables.

Loved the friendly staff and outdoor seating. Hush puppies were divine and the fish wonderfully rest. Would have received excellent, but not enough Old Bay in crab cakes and that is a matter of personal taste.

Was suggested to us by a local Chincoteauge tour boat captain, awesome affordable, and unbelievably fresh food. Hands down the best fish tacos we've had anywhere. Was able to get them with fresh local rockfish and Mahi Mahi and we ordered them blackened-simply delicious. Portion sizes were enormous, the service was extremely fast, and the hush puppies were to die... More

Hush puppies were awesome. Looks like a local dive and it lived up to the reputation. Great local fresh seafood. Had some hush puppies and a crab cake sandwich... great food.
