Yes, if you order on a Friday or Saturday night, be prepared for a 40-60 minute wait. This place is busy because it's popular and the food is cooked to order. Plan ahead. This is a takeout place, so yes, your food will come in take out containers with paper and plastic ware. If you don't pick it up promptly... More

Wow, what else can I say. This place is off the beaten path. Well worth turning off of the main street to go to. You can watch them pulling what ever you ordered out of the fresh fish and making it to order. I had Rock Fish Tacos blackened. Fantastic!!. My wife got shrimp tacos. They were spectacular!! Our son... More

The people could not have been nicer and the seafood looked super fresh. They put so much Old Bay on everything though it took over the taste & I don't care for Old Bay anyway. We got corn on the side that was not good at all. The salt oysters were good which is what Chincoteague is famous for. I... More

Great takeout food as you head out to the beach. Fresh quality seafood, good service and great value. These folks are well organized. Excellent grilled flounder sandwiches. Excellent chowder. Great tasting hushpuppies. Would go back again.

We loved this place and ate there 2 out of the 3 days we were on the island. Tons of choices to make everyone in the family happy. They also have a really awesome outdoor eating area on sand with picnic tables, umbrellas, and games to keep the kids occupied.

The campground host recommended we try to clam fritter. It was excellent. Huge amount of food for the price. Seating is outdoors and you can bring your own beverage.

We keep returning to Captain Zack's again and again! The seafood is fresh and well prepared. A lot of options here too. Mostly take out or casual outdoor eating area with picnic tables. No frills, but if you're looking for great seafood, you can't find better!

We ordered take out during a raging rain and thunder storm. Food acceptable but not fancy. Wrapped in paper.

The food was fresh and cooked perfectly. You definitely get your money's worth. Takes a little while to get but worth the wait .

I have been coming to Chincoteague for almost 40 years and thought I knew where all of the best food places were. I was so wrong!! When visiting last July, we stumbled upon Zack's. WOW. There is a wait for the food (not too long). It is definitely worth it. They have a menu that is sure to have something... More
