Heard this was within walking distance of our hotel and seemed like a big enough menu to satisfy the whole family.

Pros: service was outstanding. We had our one and five year old. Waitress was great about getting their food out first and bringing over kid friendly snacks when it seemed appropriate. Orange crush cocktails were tasty and helped with that as well (for mom and dad). Price for kids crab legs was great too. Definitely sit on the second floor for the view overlooking the water.

Cons: the quality of my roast beef sandwich was horrible. Tasteless meat, with crappy white bread, and disgusting gravy was not a good combination. Wife's shrimp plate was not good either.

Good place in many ways, but the most important for dinner quality was definitely lacking.

We ate here for dinner on our 2nd night in Chincoteague. The food was Awesome and the portions were large. I really liked the soup & salad bar available as a side with your dinner( or you could get all-u-can -eat soup & salad) We had our first Bloody Mary here --- it was AWESOME !!

We visited on a Saturday for lunch and headed upstairs. Seeing plenty of open tables, we asked the bartender if we could sit by the window and she said yes. But the server who saw us going there stopped us and said we couldn't sit there, we had to check in downstairs. We did that and the hostess brought us upstairs and seated us at the same table we had wanted. Then the server did help us but seemed quite rushed. She did not tell us the specials (although we later overheard her tell others what they were). To be fair, the room was just beginning to fill up, and she was the only one waiting on tables up there. I got the fried clams basket and they were delicious and tender. But the overall experience brought this point home to me: in addition to good food, diners want efficient service and a welcoming atmosphere. Those things matter when you're having a meal out.

For a good first impression, perhaps Don's should put a sign at the entrance to advise people heading upstairs they need to check in downstairs first. They could also have more servers working during peak times.
