Good food with a view!
There are very few food options in this area, so we thought we'd give this place a try. They offer mostly seafood dishes but also some regular fare for those who don't like seafood. We really enjoyed the atmosphere watching the tide roll out while...eating. Our only complaint was the staff. Our waitress was fantastic, but a coupl ... read more

A must stop & try if you're even within 80 miles of this place. Lots of Eastern Shore restaurants boast of the best seafood, Island House delivers in every way.

We stopped here for lunch and I had a Delicious Crab Cake Sandwich. It was a very large lump crab cake on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato and housemade tarter sauce, served with Coleslaw. YUMMY! ๐Ÿ˜ Beautiful water views from our table. Also excellent service! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Open for Covid 7 days a week! Same great seafood in these trying times!
Visiting in the area after a two year absence. Although the famous Oyster Roast to benefit the Navy Seals wives could not happen this year, they are doing what they can to support the local community and the seals foundation. The locally sourced seafood is...still the best prepared on the eastern shore. My "Fisherman's Favorite" was ... read more

We were staying in Wachapreague for one night before continuing on our trip and The Island House was really the only place in town offering a full dinner with outside dining.

Great Seafood In a Little Known Enclave...
We stopped at this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel concierge in Cape Charles, after a day checking out the horses at Chincoteague. It was a welcoming place, very good food.

We were on the Eastern Shore for a day trip but before leaving to head back south, The Hubster decided he needed to come back to your restaurant where we had eaten a few years ago -- twice. After looking for any COVID restrictions and...feeling very confident, we tacked on an additional 30 minutes just to come for your seafood. We we ... read more

Off the beaten path
Off the beaten path but worth the trip. Excellent seafood, I prefer the flounder as it is always fresh. I eat here at least once a month. I always order seafood. Oyster parramore is a specialty and I highly recommend it. Fish and chips are...another good choice. Owner is an asset to community and has raised thousands of do ... read more
