Went to the Charlotte the other night, had a table of 6. We had appetizers, such as a sausage-stuffed mild long pepper dish and oysters on the half shell, but a special treatment with a little sour cream topped with caviar and a little vodka floated in the shell. Just wonderful! Four of the people at our table had grilled... More

Dinner was incredible! We had the salmon and filet. We also had a beautiful bottle of wine recommended by Gary, the owner. Charlotte and Gary are incredible hosts as well. What an experience in little Onancock. A jewel! This is a gem hidden in this wonderful little town on the eastern shore of Virginia. The food the hotel was something... More

Elegant surroundings, great service, and the food is superb. Best. Ever. Crabcakes. But even the pork chops are made to an higher standard.

Much to our delight, we find five-star dining at the Charlotte Restaurant. The soft shell crabs were the best I ever had - succulent and delicious. The accompanying veggies were fresh and crisp and the decor was charming. If you are anywhere near Onancock, treat yourself to a first class meal at the Charlotte.

I have travelled all over the world. This is one of my favorites. Simple, elegant, small, great restaurant. Special for a tiny village like Onancock. When I told them I was leaving before kitchen opened, they left me coffee, fresh fruit and granola bars. This is my fourth stay. And to top it off, the fishing was great and stop... More

Definitely the best restaurant in town, though it is a bit pricey. Crabcakes are especially delicious, a good wine list, and incredibly nice staff.

Fantastic meal - food locally sourced and not the usual fried shore seafood meal fare. Had crab cakes with NO filler and shrimp and grits and both meals were scrumptious.

The award-winning restaurant features cuisine that is prepared using many Eastern Shore products. It is with great pride that we support local watermen, farmers, and area businesses. Because much of our fare is made from locally available ingredients, the menu changes frequently, often daily. Everything is house-made, including the ice cream! Our bar is well stocked, and the extensive wine list offers selections from around the world.
