Sting Ray's

26507 Lankford Highway, Cape Charles, VA - (757) 331-1541

What a great find Sting Ray's is! I had broiled flounder, which was perfectly fresh, with just a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Others at our table had the pulled pork platter (excellent) and fried oysters (perfect: crispy on the outside, tender and sweet on the inside).

Cornbread comes with most meals and, in addition, dinners come with a choice of two from the list of 15 or so side dishes. Mac and cheese, steamed broccoli, coleslaw, and french fries were all excellent. Corn pudding was very eggy and sweet. I wish we'd had dessert, but we had no room!

Signs along the road on Virginia's Eastern Shore advertise locally grown sweet potatoes. One of the finest fruits of the crop is Sting Ray's sweet potato pie, topped with damson plum preserves.

Marinated shrimp are big, muscular fellas that snap when bitten. That sauce in the background seemed irrelevant.

Evidence of soulful talent in the kitchen, this inconspicuous side dish of cabbage was conspicuously delicious, loaded with porky-good flavor.

Seafood gets no richer than crab imperial, which is both cream-rich and pepper hot.

Flounder is a treasure of local waters. Here it is served enveloping a mound of crab imperial.

Virginian-Pilot writer Lorraine Eaton explained to me that seaside oysters (shown here) tend to be saltier than bayside ones. I'll sure order more of these next time I visit.

Normally, waitresses bring food to your table. But when things get hectic, you may have to pick it up at the counter yourself.
