You expect good, fresh seafood on Chincoteague, but this spot is as good as it gets. Try the oysters, any chowder or the bouliabaisse as a special treat.

We had shrimp scampi and steak with breaded shrimp. Portions were large and food was great. Service was very attentive and the atmosphere was intimate even though the place was packed.
