Overlooking Eel Creek, this waterfront restaurant specializes in fresh Chincoteague oysters and offers a wide variety of seafood, as well as steaks, veal, and chicken dishes. They are open nightly for dinner; reservations are suggested.
Food was fantastic, had the seafood stuffed tomatoes and crab appetizer. Girlfriend had the crab imperial. Both dishes were hot, tasty, and large. Service was fine and the staff honored our request for a window table for our reservation which topped-off a wonderful evening. We'll be back! Nate Kona and Sarah Culpepper.
Went to the Village for my wife and my anniversary dinner. Made reservations earlier in the day and I asked to have a window seat on the water if possible. They could not guarantee it but they person taking the reservation said that they would put in for it and try. When we arrived we were seated promptly and I was pleasantly pleased to find that it was a window seat on the water.
I was not terribly impressed with the decor. It was very minimal. Clean, but not very polished. The walls and ceiling could use some work. The tables and chairs were just not very impressive. Dunno. Liked Bill's better for pure ambiance.
Our waiter was on the ball and friendly. We ordered crab soup as an appetizer and it was quite good. My wife had the surf and turf and I tried the blackened tuna.
Meal came in good time. My tuna was a bit overcooked and you couldn't really taste the seasoning but it was not horrible. Just not great. However, my wife's meal was super! The steak was juicy and tender. The lobster cooked perfect and the crab imperial was delicious. I would definitely recommend that.
All in all it was a very nice dinner. But I was not soooo terribly impressed that I would run back. I will try some other places next.
I have been going to Chincoteague all my life and for the past few years the Village has always been my family's favorite restaurant. The last few times we've been there though, it has gone downhill. This last time, about 2 weeks ago, we went and all ordered the fried seafood platter. Everything was delicious - except for what is supposed to be the best part. The lobster! I bit into mine and my first question was "Are you supposed to eat this part?" I have had many lobsters in my life so I know what lobsters taste like. All of our lobsters were practically raw. We complained to the waitress and she was very kind about it. As soon as she took mine she started to gag and said I am so sorry. Much to our surprise, however, we only got $2 off each platter. That is not the cost of a lobster! After throwing them all away, she informed us that the cooks said that it is cooked, but the lobster within the shell is supposed to taste raw. For one, it was the part outside the tail I complained of first! And secondly, that is absurd! The manager did not take the time to talk to us, even though my two aunts and mother stood there asking to talk to him. Obviously he is not too concerned with the patronage we give at least once a year, as well as our friends and family who also go at least once a year. We will certainly never go back there again, and now that both the Landmark and Castaways are closed we know of nowhere else to go that is good! I rated the food up because all the rest of it was delicious. It was the service and the lobster I complain of.
The Village is my favorite restaurant in Chincoteague. I have been to Chincoteague about 10 times and I always enjoy dining at The Village. It is the complete package for a dining experience. I cannot wait until I dine at The Village again.
