We stopped here for breakfast on a beautiful fall Saturday. It's an interesting place. You order at the counter then a waitress brings you your order to the table. We got eggs, corned beef hash and hash browns. It was basic fare, and tasty. Coffee...More

We usually cook while we camp but this was a last minute trip. We got fantastic seafood two. Ishtar from here. Their food is great, sides are plentiful and coconut cream pie is to die for!

Unpretentious atmosphere inside of a "general store" with awesome food! Ate dinner there one night and breakfast another day while in Cape Charles. Close to the Chesapeake KOA. Can eat in but it appeared to have a serious take out business going on! Highly recommend.

The food was delicious. I ordered the catfish and got two big pieces plus two sides with some of the best cornbread. Good value for the money.

If you like food relatively close to “home cooked,” this is the place to go in Virginia’s Eastern Shore about a 1-2 mile drive from the Welcome Center. You have a selection of barbecue and seafood and the cornbread is never to be missed.

Stopped yesterday and stood in line to place my order at counter. Got pulled pork and fries with lemonade. Sandwich tasted prefab! Small amount of tasteless fries, but lemonade refreshing. Bought T-shirt for friend at gift shop.
