Steamers – Chincoteague Island, Virginia


You have got to love a restaurant that has brown paper on the table and a full sized trash can next to it! 


We chose Steamers on Chincoteague Island because it was within walking distance of our hotel, looked family friendly and boasted lots and lots of delicious seafood.  The restaurant was noisy and perfect for our group of nine.  If you can think of the seafood, they probably have it grilled or fried!  The kids were amazed by the All-You-Can-Eat trays that were coming out of the kitchen.  If you order all you can eat crabs, shrimp, etc, it all comes out on a cafeteria tray!  If you don’t like seafood, don’t worry because they also serve chicken, steak and seafood.  The sweet potato biscuits that come out as soon as you sit down are so tasty and sweet.  I am on a search to replicate the recipe.


The clam chowder was good but the shrimp was absolutely delicious.  And yes…that is a bowl of butter sitting on top of it.


We loved the fried scallops and oysters!  And the hush puppies…YUM!


The prices are on the high side but are still reasonable.  We loved the restaurant so much that after a failed attempt to eat at another restaurant in town the next day, we headed straight back to Steamers!
