Ray's Shanty - Fabulous seafood for very reasonable prices. We enjoy the Maco Bites and fish sandwiches. Located off the Island, 15 minutes away.
Don’s Seafood Market and Restaurant / Chatties Lounge - Good seafood on the island. We enjoy their crab cake sandwiches, fried shrimp basket, and clam chowder.
Crusty Crab - Local seafood joint at a working waterman's boat launch approximately 30 minutes away in Greenbackville. The Crabby Taters are a must-have. Expect a wait.
Island Creamery - Handmade ice cream in all the flavors you can imagine.
Famous Pizza - Located on Maddox near the traffic circle. Great pizza, subs, gyros, and more!
Sandy Pony Donut Truck - Yummy donuts! Located next to Pharmacy on Maddox.

CRABBING OR FISHING
If you want to do either and don’t have your own equipment, go to Captain Steve’s on Maddox and ask for Jimmy. If Jimmy isn’t there, his Dad, Tom or brother, Pete will most likely be there to help out. They have daily rod or trap rentals and any type of bait or tackle you might need.
