This restaurant was busy, so we thought it would be good. Actually, lower prices than nearby competition was the reason for the crowd. The food was mediocre, the service earnest but flustered.

Located on the main drag through "old town" Chincoteague, Don's looks like the spot to go for a traditional seafood meal near the beach. We were seated promptly on the upper level at a window table overlooking the water. Waitress was friendly and very pleasant....More

I love this local, homey place. Food is always great, hot, excellent service, even on Labor Day weekend. Excellent crab cake, loaded with crab, plus a small salad bar. Decent prices, too.

We went to Don's on our 2nd night on the island.. The food is good but nothing special. The prices are also OK.. The fish my wife ordered was a bit dry and the salad was small. It's good but there are better.

The only restaurant on the island that owns it's own oyster beds. The prices are fairly reasonable, the service is good, and they know how to cook seafood. For laid back quality food, Don's is hard to beat.

We were doubting between three and four bubbles for this one, and finally decided to go for three because although Bill's Prime down the street is a bit more expensive, the food is exponentially better. Do not get me wrong, it is not that Don's...More
