We have never been to a seafood restaurant that you had to pay for hushpuppies, very disappointed in that. A not so tasty square of sweet cornbread is what you get. Anyway, I had two stuffed shrimp with crabmeat, they were very good, with yams...More

We stopped at Stingray on our trip back from a college reunion. It was not our first visit and we pretty much knew what to expect. On a Friday night the place was very busy so we had to wait to order and it took...More

Stopped for lunch on our way home. Food was fine but a little overpriced for what it is. Very casual, typical beachy restaurant. Our party ordered fish and chips, crab cakes, burgers. Everyone was happy with what they got.

what you see is what you get. good local seafood etc. prices merely reflect the cost of fresh, local provisions.

The seafood is average at best. I found the prices to be higher than I expected, more on par with a fancier restaurant than a diner - and it is a diner atmosphere from the seating to silverware.

Sting-Rays is a classic roadside diner. With the food right off a large diner flat grill. the ordering and the having the food delivered to your table makes life eaier, especialy with children. Besides food, this place has a neat gift shop, and good prices.

My wife and I had the crab cakes as a local had recommended Stingrays. We did not feel that we were getting very much crab but more filler. The setting is modest and we made a bad decision. It was very disappointing.

Food was just as expected. Fried Crab Cakes were good. Pie a la mode was good. Ambience was country casual at the service station.

We were hungry and saw a seafood restaurant with 4 stars. I can’t imagine why. As shown on a newspaper article on the wall, it is just gas station food. I wish we had stopped at Royal Farms for fried chicken.
