Their Grilled Shrimp Taco was fabulous! Just right for a beautiful lunch overlooking the water.

We had an excellent meal and dinner experience last evening. Our waitress Amanda gave us very good service and the food and drink was second to none. This is my favorite place to enjoy a good meal. With Watchaprague being a short drive off 13 the meal was quick and easy.

The place was amazing. Freshly caught food from the water nearby. We sat outside and had a blast. The view was stunning and the calm sounds of nature was soothing.

Ate outside we were offered an umbrella however opted to enjoy the sun. Had a dozen oysters on the 1/2 shell, crab soup and shrimp tacos. All were fresh and flavorful.

The 30ish-minute wait was worth it. Beautiful waterfront scenery and a comfortable, welcoming, slightly rustic setting. Got a Delmarva craft beer and a burger with crab meat on it. The wife loved the crab bisque. Our upbeat server, Noah, is a gentleman and a scholar.

Great seafood place! Light battering on the large portion of oysters that I had was delicious. Large fanned shrimp for my wife. Reasonably priced. Beautiful view of the oceanside marshes and barrier islands of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Amazing food, the sweet potato biscuits should be saved for dessert! Never a bad meal and beautiful views of the barrier islands. Must see...

Had a wonderful experience here. Food was excellent with lots of seafood options and even some kid-friendly fare. And they allow dogs on the back deck so our four-legged family member was able to join us too. If you get the fish, go with blackened. Perfectly cooked and really delicious. Will go again!

Don't worry about making the drive to Island House because once you are there, you'll be thrilled about your decision. Island House is well-known for their fresh fish and the flounder will knock your socks off but everything including the crab, hamburgers and sides are delicious. Finish off your meal with the chocolate bread pudding.
