Food was excellent. It just seemed to take awhile. But I poured away my anxiety with Crown Royal. And as I said, the food couldn’t be beat. But there was one big drawback. Their hand printed sign at the front podium said Thursday evening open to close all entree’s were $13:99. And when I pointed that out to the server the almos ... read more

The food was delicious, and service outstanding. Our server, Gwen, was super friendly! I had crab hushpuppies and fresh soft crabs, which I highly recommend!

In the summer the bugs outside can be a bit bitey, I guess my forearms were on their menu, but that's nature and that's me *choosing* to sit outside so of course I won't fault the restaurant for it. That being said, the food is incredible, savory and rich with fairly modest portions, every time I go up the eastern shore I take the 15 ... read more

Decided to drive the 5 miles off 13 to get there. We had the best oysters Rockafeller that we have ever had, orded a second order for desert. The clams in garlic and wine sauce was sheer perfection.

This place is well worth the detour off the Eastern Shore's main drag, Route 13, for a first-rate meal. The restaurant was doing a brisk, COVID-spaced business inside and out when we visited for a Monday lunch in April, feeding what appeared to be a mix of local folks and visitors. One of us had the fried flounder sandwich, a huge ch ... read more

We enjoyed a quick lunch here while driving through the Eastern Shore. I had the crab cake sandwich and a bahama mama. The service was a little slow but the environment was very relaxing. They had several outdoor heaters so I'm sure they accommodate cooler days and nights. I would say it was worth the stop!

The Island House has great seafood and the views from the dining room are spectacular. Try to get a window table, but really all tables have good views. Be sure to order crab cakes and flounder, but it is all good. Our server did a great job, too.

Quite pricey but the food is worth for its price range. I highly recommend their crab cakes as you can taste the actual crab in it.

I take away a star because I feel like they charge a little too much. The staff was great. I was happy to see they have Norfolk Canyon on draft. The food was delicious. Whoever was shucking oysters last night needs more practice.

Beautiful water views (get there well before dark), excellent service and food. I've been twice and thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. Many seafood dishes on the menu, which my friend loves.

Oysters were amazing!!! Waitress great. The entrees came out warm. The coleslaw had a weird taste. Seemed like cabbage with a Mayo salad dressing on it. The sweet potato fries were so thick some were not done in the middle.
