Visited Bay Creek and played 4 rounds of golf at the amazing golf courses. WE stumbled across Sting Rays and found the food to be very good and the atmosphere to be very accommodating for visitors. They had all different kinds of shrimp and great crab cakes. we visited this restaurant twice. Great place to visit

We were told by several people that this was the place to stop and eat when going to Cape Charles. It is known for the locals eating here as well as visitors who are coming to the beach community. So, we decided to give it a try. I was slightly thrown off when told to take a menu that was... More

Second time here. Stopped because it's the first restaurant along the road after crossing the CBBT northbound. The crab cakes tasted weird, the flounder was decent although fried with the skin on (fortunately I like fish skin). The chicken salad was bland and had too much mayo. The mashed potatoes had the consistency of paste. My daughters liked the ham... More

We have stopped before and had better experiences. We were disappointed, but will return, because we know everyone can have an off day.

We ordered the food and it took almost 45+ min to deliver to our table, they did apologize for the wait.seafood(fried fish) was way expensive and did not seem fresh.Did not like it.won't visit again. It surely is a tourist trap.

The food was delicious. Waitresses were attentive and polite. Best crab cake ever. My scallops were not cooked to my taste but the were still good eating. The shrimp was totally enjoyable. We will visit this place again. Friday nights are busy here so be prepared to wait.... But it's worth it.

For the last 16 years I have been camping at the Kiptopeke State Park with my sisters, childs and husband. And every year we were looking forward to our diners at Stringray but to our great demise we notice a lot of change since last year probably due to a change in ownership: quality of food as decrease, air conditioning...
