The gal who took our order was cordial. I had eggs, sausage, grits, & toast. This is the 1st time I enjoyed grits! Food came quickly & hot. My husband has sausage & cheese omelette. He said it was a bit greasy. All in all got us going for our long day of driving.

I have been here at least 5 times. I especially like their sweet potato biscuits. Food comes quickly and the service is friendly. The restaurant is next to a cute store and part of a gas station..

My daughter and I decided to stop and check it out and we're going to leave but decided to not let the appearance turn us away as the place was filling up. We loved the only waitress and had the best crab cakes. No fillers were inside, just crab. Expensive, yes but worth every morsel.

Stingrays is famous with locals as well as Route 13 travelers. Their food is fresh, delicious, local, and moderately priced. If you aren't there at breakfast, place an order of sweet potato biscuits with ham to go! They are delicious two and even three days later! We have tried to duplicate the recipe to no avail. The food is always... More

I read about Stingrays on TA. I was looking for a good place to stop for dinner. BIG MISTAKE, the crab cake was terrible. It tasted like old fish. The BBQ ribs were anything but BBQ. I should of known when I did not see a wood pile outside. The ribs tasted like boiled meat seared in sauce. I also... More

Stopped by here on our travel home. It is located in a gas station and is very small and dated. The food was ok but we did not exactly eat there specialties. Had the calm chowder and it was very fishy. The hamburger was just ok. The pork BBQ was just ok, also. Probably won't eat here again.

Local eatery, large choice of food. Family style food, not fancy. Order at the cashier and the waitress brings your food. Food is good.

This place is one stop shopping for tshirt S, wine, souvenirs, a few grocery items, bumper stickers....and a small restaurant in the back. Friends made breakfast; all good but bacon underdone. We got the rest the switch to lunch so I ordered my BLT with crispy bacon -- and it was perfect. BBQ was good, not great. All in all,... More

Very locals oriented. Place your order at the counter and then brought by waitress. The seafood menu was limited and VERY expensive. However, hamburgers, ribs, steak etc is about average price. Quality is just OK. Heavily patronized by locals which gives it a nice atmosphere as everyone seems to know each other including the staff. Did not care for their... More

Was recently in the area for a sea kayaking symposium and hit Sting-Rays every morning for breakfast. Good, no-nonsense dishes and decent service. One tip - you have got to try their sweet potato biscuit with a slice of country ham! Un-real!
