RE: Jersey Shore with side trip to Chincoteague
Bill's Seafood is a plain cooking sort of place, popular with locals, that has everything fresh from the boat - we always like it.
AJs on the road toward Assateague is also good, more upscale- we remember especially the clams casino.
The Wagon Wheel for breakfast is good. Also, one of the big places on the Canal has a good buffet breakfast we always liked - sorry, can't remember which place.
If you like Crab Imperial (I don't, my wife does) the old Pony Pines used to have the best around.
The Sea Bass is a four star restaurant, but I can't tell you anything about it because we have never made a reservation and eaten there.
Lots of places have very good fresh on the halfshell oysters, and steamed oysters. If they bring you , which some places will, half frozen oyster, send them back or get up and go someplace where they treat an oyster with respect and open them right in front of you.
Aunt Hatties used to be good - not sure its still there. Look for excellent Manhatan style clam chowder in Chincoteague - we've had some fine chowders there.
