I'm going to be taking a trip to Chincoteague and some of the surrounding areas on the Eastern Shore. I have noticed that any threads on Chincoteague are a bit old so I was wondering if anyone had more recent restaurant recommendations. (Other sites alllike have mixed reviews for pretty much every restaurant on the island.) I'm interested in seafood obviously and anything else that's good.
Thanks in advance
I was in Chincoteague last month, and found the restaurants mostly disappointing, especially if you're interested in seafood, as we were.
Best place we went was a place a little outside Chincoteague called Ray's the Shanty. Favored by locals, it gets very crowded, so you need to be prepared to wait, or get there very early. Another non-touristy place the locals like, which we unfortunately didn't get to try, is the Vietnamese restaurant in the historic district.
Steamers was pretty good, but they were out of the all-you-can blue crab feast (which is what we went there for) by 6 p.m.
Whatever you do, don't go to A.J.'s
