Amazing food and equally great service! I had the salad with a crab cake on top and sampled some apps with friends that came. Fried pickles, sweet potato fries, blackened chicken bites, and steamed garlic butter clams. Every bit of what we had was delicious. Highly highly recommend. The views on the water are spectacular as well.

What a hidden gem of a restaurant. We were looking for a good place to eat with a water view. This was great except it was raining. I'm not a seafood fan so I had the baby back ribs. The waitress said they were smoked earlier in the day on premises. Probably the best ribs I've had in a while. Ordered the full rack and was more than I ... read more

After a somewhat slow start, the service and food were excellent. Our waitress had great suggestions with the menu and the food couldn't have been better! Can't wait to return!

Food was delicious! My husband got the soft shelled crab and I got the crab cakes. Best part of the meal though was the fried oysters! They were melt in your mouth delicious. Downside- we made reservations, but still had to wait 20 minutes. That was annoying and the host staff seemed overwhelmed and unprepared. Our waiter Noah was am ... read more

I can't say enough good things about Island House. My wife and two children dined here on our way home from NC and it was the best seafood we had on our trip. The oysters and clams were caught down the road from the restaurant and we watched as the commercial fishing boats went out from our table on the back deck. Service was great t ... read more

Great location, worth the ride. The seafood is quite good (though some people were having burgers or ribs - not sure why). Basic VA fare, including crabs, oysters, and local fish. We would go again.

Everytime I go there the food is delicious!!! I had a salad with dinner. The dressing was cucumber and washbi vingerate!!! It was spicy and a taste of cucumbers. I would get the dressing again!!!

It was definitely worth the bit of a ride off of Route 13 south or Accomac. Either way it's a pleasant country ride. The food was quite good, and of course we went for seafood. The house salad, adding fried oysters, was very fresh. We hope hope they add local tomatoes when then come in. The oysters had a good crunch, and the flavor w ... read more

The Island House recently catered my wedding in Eastville, VA and all I have to say is they did a fabulous job! Dana went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect and even worked with the rental company to help ease my stress. Thank you Island House for all your hard woek, everything was delicious!!

Great staff. Though the waitress seemed new. I had a few questions, and she would go ask the manager. Which was great, but it was in mid sentence she would walk away. Food was great! I'd go back. No complaints.

Decent seafood paired with a view, what more could you ask for?! Had a seafood combo without the cheese (no need to have something mess with oceanic delights) and others had crab cakes.
