The tables were not crammed together like many restaurants are there was a comfortable space between the tables. the broccoli salad was the best... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday night while vacationing in Chincoteague. It was very crowded but we had reservations so we got in with just a little wait. The scallops were delicious as was the warm pecan pie. The prices were not bad either for such good food and large portions

This restaurant is not a fancy place but seafood is on the expensive side no matter where you go. So it is a bit different to spend $40 for a meal and not have tablecloth and other elements of fine dining. Fortunately the beer and wine was inexpensive. Overall the price was reasonable when considering it included soup and dessert.... More

Don's has been around in Chincoteague since I was a child. The atmosphere is comfortable and the food is good, not great, but good. There are plenty of choices and the service is always friendly.

Great place with plenty of choices for the kids too. The steamed seafood platter was cooked perfectly. Shrimp, oysters and clams were not overcooked! The crab legs were easy to crack. The salad bar was fresh with plenty of options! No filler in the crab cakes is always a plus. We'd never tried stone crab claws before! The cheesecake finished... More
