My mom and I came from Chincoteague for my birthday dinner, and Maurice's was worth the drive! We ordered a few drinks and apps to split.First, my mom ordered the Assateague IPA, and she said it was very good. Our server recommended the mule for me, and it was refreshing. The mix of Cucumber was so crisp and exactly what I needed for a hot August day. It was probably the best mule I have ever tried, and so I ordered a second.Next, we had the fresh shrimp and scallop ceviche. This dip was addictive! I have lived in Panama and Costa Rica in the past, and this ceviche would give any a run for their money. With this we ordered the Virginia ham egg rolls. The wonton was light and crispy and the poached pear was delightful addition.We finished the night trying two different sushi rolls. I was not expecting good sushi from an American restaurant, set in country corn fields, but I am glad that I gave it a try. We ordered the Spider roll with fresh soft shell blue crab. My mom said it was the best sushi roll.she has ever had. The tempura seasoning was light and provided the right amount of crunch for the soft rice. The second roll was the Seaside roll, which a mix of scallops and tuna. This was also.very well made.Our server was professional and knowledgeable in every item on the menu. He also informed us that the tomatoes and herbs were grown on site. His recommendations for drinks and dishes were spot on. The interior and exterior design and decor of the restaurant was simple yet classy.I am glad that I mad reservations as I am not sire if we would have been able to be seated had I not. Reservations were effortless and done through Google assistant, about 90 minutes before arriving.This place was phenomenal and one of the best dinners I have had on the Virginia Eastern Shore. I wish I had taken better photos. It was the perfect place to celebrate a quiet birthday dinner. I only wish that I had brought more of an appetite, because the creme brulee cheese cake the table next to us ordered looked amazing.I will definitely be returning!(Vegan and Gluten Free options available.)

Absolutely delicious. The shrimp, corn and bacon chowder is fantastic and the steakhouse cheesecake is the best dessert I've had in quite a while.

We ordered take out for dinner. I ordered a hawaiin tuna poke bowl and a maui mango sushi roll.A little bit more expensive than I like to spend but our sushi was very good and just as fresh as other people have told me.

We celebrated a milestone birthday. My wife had Sushi which looked and tasted fabulous. I had the prime rib which was Presented well and was tasty. Can't wait to go back. The service was good and our meals came out in a timely manner.

So the first time I visited Maurice was 2022 for Valentine's day. It was a busy night, full house. The service was slow but we chalked it up to being very busy. I don't know this for a fact, but we suspect our waitress was the owner's wife. The food was very good, I had a ribeye that was huge and perfectly cooked. My wife had the special which was beef tip lasagna, which was excellent!! This place is pricey, it not an everyday place. Expect to pay about $30-40/ person. But, the waitress, THE WAITRESS!! If you are going to command gourmet prices to go with your experience, then the service should be at least enough warrant the price tag. The second time was tonight: Father's day. My wife made reservations and were sat promptly. And then here comes THE WAITRESS! I told myself, everyone has a bad day, a night. Give it a chance. So I opened my mind and embraced it. We got our drinks and everyone was settling in perusing the menu. I ordered sushi and my two sons did as well. My wife ordered the Pork tenderloin with pancetta. They have a very tasty charcuterie plate, we and ordered that. The appetizer came and we were happily munching on meats and cheeses. The waitress asked if I would like another beer, and I accepted. Well about this time a four top across from us was seated. As I was enjoying the evening I took note of the fact that they had the same older waitress. But there was one small problem. They seemed to get their drinks and appetizers with lightning speed. 20 minutes had passed and I had an empty beer glass staring at me. Meanwhile the other table, their glasses never got more than half full before water was filled and cold beers abounded! So eventually my beer arrives after a 20 minute hiatus from the waitress. Fast forward , from the time we finished our appetizer to our entree, 45 minutes of staring at the tablecloth. I enjoyed my time with my family and made idle conversation,I certainly was not expecting fast food times here folks.But just short of an hour for an entree to arrive at the table and adding to the fact we were never checked on other than to replace a glass of water that had a giant hair in it, was a little excessive. To add insult to injury, when the bill arrived the waitress had charged us $5 for rolls that she offered to my kids as a peace offering for taking so long! After a conversation with the owner and pleading my case he did take our 3 alcoholic drinks off the bill. But offered no condolence for the service or anything apathetic other than saying he adjusted the bill and whisked away. I would love to have been a pro football player, but I know my limitations. Just because you are part owner of a restaurant, does not impart you with osmotic powers of a wait person. Stick with opening wine and schmoozing with the customers.

Having tried different trading platform , my last experience with Mrs Jessica Wayne is the best ever, I traded with $500 and within a week i made profit of $6,230 and to my greatest surprise no extra charge was paid for my withdrawal. So I recommend Mrs Jessica Wayne platform for effective trade to every one. Email: [email protected] WhatsApp no: +1(918)609-3473.

Excellent diverse menu, perfect presentation, amazing taste. Sushi is outstanding. PRICEY. But for the price don't even bother for a FREE refill on your $3.00 coffee after the "a la cart" feast. After dinner drinks - they make up pricing on a whim. I'm however still willing to revisit after 3 sittings. Hope the chef does not leave. Will see if they finally manage to undermine their excellence with their nickel and diming.

Came over from Virginia Beach for an evening away and had an amazing meal at Maurice. Our server was helpful and knew the menu well. I had the bacon wrapped scallops and the Eastern Shore Paella. My wife had the soft shell crab bites and the Truffle/steak lasagna special. Both were marvelous. Can't wait til our next visit to this charming town and Maurice.


Delicious meal, probably the best we have had on our trip north. I had the Chesapeake sushi roll which was tasty. My husband had the-irk belly which had a rich sweet asian sauce.


We dined at Maurices an 4/2/22. The food was absolutely superb and our wait staff Angie was very nice, attentive and helpful! Wonderful menu, great wine list and warm and engaging atmosphere! We would suggest making Maurices a definite stop while in Onancock. Sue - Elizabeth City, NC
