Great service and excellent food! Crab dip was light and yummy. Had the burger with crab meat on top. It was so juicy and huge! Can't go wrong.

Great stop for lunch! The food was delicious and the staff was super friendly. Great job accommodating during the pandemic with distancing. The crab cake and clams were soooo good. The scallops were good, just needed a little more flavor. Overall, definitely somewhere I would go again.

Wonderful excursion! My husband and I have passed by the turn off for Isand House many times, but have always been on a tight schedule. This time we took a moment to veer off the major highway.

First off, this was the best meal we have had on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. It is our last day here or we would be back immediately. In fact, we may make vacation plans based around this restaurant. Seriously, the apps, meal, and dessert were all fantastic. Not to mention the unique and very tasty sweet potatoe biscuits!

The luxury of homemade sauce. My seemingly humble meatball sub was elevated to special with homemade sauce and a genuine Amorosa roll. The Caesar salad was generously sized and fresh. Ps - our waitress was just the right amount of helpful/ chatty/and attentive.

This place was a little out of our way but it was worth the 10 minute drive. The service was excellent and my wife and I enjoyed our meals. I had the broiled seafood platter and she had the scallops...both were delicious. It was well worth the drive and the calories. Lastly, you get to enjoy an amazing view while you eat....

A unique restaurant against the shore of a beautiful estuary. The view is especially captivating at sunset with sea birds flying over head with many large herons fishing outside. The food was good but very pricey. But a good destination spot if you want to explore.

A great place to spend a few hours watching the tide go in and out. Great views, great service, and the food was perfectly prepared. Bonus - crushed ice for the water/sodas/tea.

I also had the crab bisque which was very rich and delicious. Will definitely go back - especially in warmer months to enjoy outdoor seating.
