We dined here again before they closed, and our meals were very good as usual. My salmon was perfect along with my sides and cream of crab soup. This is such a cozy, relaxed restaurant with really tasty food. The view can't be beat!

We went and had a farewell dinner, with some friends, since the owners will be retiring the beginning of October. The view on the water is amazing and the seafood is of good quality. Service is well done and we are hoping that someone will purchase or run the restaurant in the future, it would be a shame to loose... More

They have a buffet on sundays that is extreme. this week it was turkey( real) not lunch roll, taters and gravy, stuffing , creamed corn, fried fish and extremely good fried chicken. Ate way to much but just could not resist. YUM! they close on Oct 2nd this year. put it on your wanna b list for next season.

Hard to find and not so great to look at but beautiful view of wallops island launch pad, greAt food, reasonable prices and nice people. Sorry to say owners are retiring. Hopefully, another restaurant will take its place. Good luck to the owners both old and new.

We were impressed with the lovely water view at this restaurant. However, the food we both had was over cooked and even burned. Things like sweet potatoes arrived with black skin inside. The baked salmon stuffed with crab imperial sounded great, but came out with the crab imperial very dry from being overcooked and the cheese topping was burned. The... More

I have been coming here with my family for years. It has always been a place where we can all individually find something appealing on the menu. The corn bread was always a must! I have always thought the portions were generous, and this year was no different. That being said, I would be remiss if I didn't comment on... More

Interesting restaurant. Wright's is located on the water and you can see the Wallops Island NASA launch site from the dining area. But the restaurant is a bit rundown and needs a face lift outside and a do-over inside. Service was prompt and the food was certainly acceptable, but something was missing. There was no energy in the restaurant. Our... More

I'm not even sure what site my husband was on when he found this place, but I'm glad he did. We were staying a couple miles away on Chincoteague Island and looking for somewhere to go for dinner. Up until this point, we had struck out quite a bit with the local island places. The menu is seafood centric, but... More

The appearance of this place from the outside says it all......carries through to the inside. It is dirty, food is not very good. They should invest in some cleaning supplies....oh yeah, try washing the windows too!!!!
