With the Atlantic Ocean at Chincoteague's back door, it's no wonder that seafood abounds in the local fare. Chincoteague Island has long been renound for its fresh, local seafood (especially Tom's Cove Clams and Oysters). In Chincoteague, seafood goes straight from the local waters to your plate. You can't get it any fresher than that! However if seafood is not your thing, there is still enough variety in the local restaurants to suit everyone's taste.
