The food was delicious, especially the sweet potato biscuit to start. Great choices for drinks and beer. The scallops and flounder were so yummy! Chose the lemon island cake: frosting was perfect and not too sweet; the cake was amazing! Our waitress was Shelby and she spoiled us, even though we were one of the last tables for the ... read more

On this Sunday, at the end of the the Thanksgiving weekend, we have the best midday meal! Clams and smoked oysters over linguine for me, a pork chop with cranberries for Gary. As always, we start with sweet potato biscui ... read more

Absolutely delicious food. We had hot crab dip, crab bisque soup, fish & chips and "Burton's Bay Backfin Burger." We sat outside on the patio overlooking the beautiful water. Highly recommended!

Beautiful views. Good service. Good food. What's not to like. I have been to the Island House Restaurant twice. Very happy both times. The menu includes a lot of seafood choices.

The staff does an awesome job. Great waterfront views. Food was delicious but I feel their menu is lacking in variety and originality for the price. Also the lighting inside is very dim in the evenings and difficult to read the menus. I still recommend anyone to eat here and experience the small town life.

Spectacular setting in a small town in Accomac County, Virginia. Oysters and crabs should be the reason to venture off of US-13 to visit.
