They will accommodate "nice" people but reservations would be easier. Strong drinks, good salad, oysters Rockefellers wonderful, fresh seafood, scrumptious key lime pie, pleasant service. What's not to like?

This is a really nice place to have dinner if you want something a little bit more upscale than the casual atmosphere of Chincoteague. Dinner was great and the service was a really nice experience. My only complaint was that the dining table that the sat us directly underneath a VERY BRIGHT lamp which kinda took away from the intimate... More

Average food and service. Place needs a good deep cleaning. Tables and booths are well worn and a bit on the dumpy side. Guess for Chincoteague it could be considered a cut above but the entire village is a step back in time.

One of our party was not a fancier of seafood, but she was pleased with what she got here. The rest of us were very pleased with our steamed shrimp, coconut shrimp, pasta, and steak (the latter looked very good to me, but I was content with my steamed shrimp, as to quality as well as quantity). Our waitress--Megan or... More

We ate an early dinner on a Thursday, a party of eight. Certainly there was plenty of parking on our arrival, though a bit packed in the lot on our departure. We'd made reservations due to our size but I might suggest reservations for any time/date/party size as parties of any size were into a 25 minute wait well before... More

Even though the decor and cuisine was pretty high end, everyone in the place was dressed very casually so don't let that stop you from going. In general, Chincoteague does not appear to busy this time of year (a lot of the highly rated restaurants on trip advisor were closed still). This was the first place that we went to... More
