During our brief 2½ hour visit to Tangier Island, we made a stop at Hilda Crocket’s restaurant for an “all you can eat” lunch. Tables for 8 are laid so that small groups can share – a nice idea that offers opportunities to meet and chat with other people. A very generous lunch is provided, with the local speciality crab...

Visited in late July and a very hot time of year for the area! Dinner and breakfast included in room rate was ample and delicious!! Room #8 had a double and twin bed and dresser - window a/c unit worked fine. It was clean and neat. Shared bathroom with several rooms worked out ok though very dated bathroom! Tangier Island...

The breakfast as well as the lunch and dinner are served family style at communal tables. I've enjoyed the communal aspect and found the other diners to be very friendly and interesting to talk to. However, this might not appeal to all. The menus are described on their web site. The breakfast is excellent on all counts and very inexpensive.... More

Our entire family of 5 loved going to Crockett's Chesapeake House. I had called ahead and made reservations because I know sometimes they fill up with large groups. The Saturday we went, there were two large groups, but they also had room for us and we sat down with other people coming off the Chesapeake Breeze Ferry. Food was family... More

Great home-style country meal. All you care to eat! Reminded me of a Thanksgiving feast. Best cole slaw that I have ever eaten.

The food is wonderful and the shear amount of it is overwhelming. The homemade bread is delicious!! The spoon bread and crab cakes are phenomenal. It is all very good though.

I ate here with a large tour group. The staff worked hard to make certain we had lots of food and sweet tea. It has a lot of character. Since I was already with a group, eating family style didn't seem so odd. The crab cakes were very good. There weren't many options though if you don't like country style... More

This was our 3rd time here over the years. It is sad to see a for sale sign in front sand hear the founding family is selling. It is good but not great seafood with some unusual dishes served family style as you sit with strangers although at 1 pm on a Wednesday we sat in an empty room Service... More

It is a little strange to eat at a large table with 8 other completely random people. The woman in charge seemed a little grouchy but that might be her normal personality. The iced tea is brewed in the morning in one large batch and is ladled out of a trash can in the corner. The iced tea was great... More
