There may be better -- and much more expensive --seafood restaurants nearby, but Don's was a tasty choice. Like others have said, the Fisherman's Stew (I'd call it a chowder) was full of fresh seafood -- perhaps the highlight of dinner. We also had the broiled seafood platter, kids pasta dish and bread pudding. There were some misses -- the... More

We ate upstairs. the food and service were decent and the location was good. They got busy and that took away from the level of service which is understandable but a little disappointing at the same time.

Average food, specializing in average seafood. We went there on Friday but on Saturday it was crowded (I think they had a band). Nothing to write home about.

After a long day of travel, my husband and 4 yr old grandson enjoyed out first meal on Chincoteague Island. The food was very good, esp the fried oysters and seafood stew. The waitress was excellent, making sure to get the food order for our grandson in quickly- a real bonus! When I browsed the salad bar, another patron came... More

We made right choice on Main Street. As there was no room downstairs the waitress asked if we wanted to eat upstairs at the bar. Glad we did. Good atmosphere and the staff was friendly. A customer actually recommended a local draft beer. It to was a good choices. I had the fried oyster basket and my wife the fish... More

My husband and I wanted to take advantage of our 2 night stay on Chincoteague Island to have some good seafood for dinner, and the staff at our hotel recommended Don's. Because they are known for their crab cakes, which have no "filler", I ordered them and was not disappointed. They also had a salad bar that was not anything... More

We ate here multiple times while visiting just because it was within walking distance of the hotel (Days Inn-great hotel!). The menu is what you'd expect for beach-y town, slightly on the higher end for pricing but not for quality or ambiance. I'd call it acceptable.

We had visited Chincoteague a few times back in the 90’s and each trip included at least one meal at Don’s. When we returned for a few days this year we had to give Don’s a try again. We had always had great meals there in the past and we were hopeful that Don’s hadn’t changed as far as the... More
