Seemed like a must to have a crab cake sandwich while on Tangier Island so we stopped in Lorraine's right away. Overall the service was a bit unfriendly and the tourists coming off the ferry seemed to be treated like cattle. I have eaten crab...More

Super service and food to match. We all ate well and were provided plenty of water on a hot day. My Army son was not only thanked profusely by the staff because they saw his hat, but by all the customers. So nice!
