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!

There aren't a lot of choices for a good meal in Cape Charles. We seem to stop at Sting Rays just about every time we stay at our rental home, Seashell Cottage, but it is only because we want seafood. When the family is down I cook but when it is just my husband and me I prefer to go... More

Years ago when it was owned and operated by Ray Haynie Stingrays was delightful. Great food, local atmosphere, and you could gas up your car too. These days you can still get gas and some locals can be found but the culinary experience has declined. There is little value and I would recommend you stop elsewhere for your Eastern Shore... More

Stopped in for lunch and had a fish Sandwich. The food was plain simple and nothing to write home about. The atmosphere was like a countryside diner. Seemed like there were better deals on the menu. Good service otherwise.
