Etta's Channel Side Restaurant provides local seafood in a family atmosphere. Etta's overlooks the Assateague Channel and the famous Assateague Lighthouse. The Chef's Specialty is homemade crab cakes. Senior citizen's and children's menus are available. Open weekdays from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. Open Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 9 p.m. Closed Dec. 31 through late March.

Etta's is located on the CHANNEL SIDE of Assateague waterway. From our fireside dining room you can see the lighthouse as well as wildlife in action on the marsh of Assateague Island.  From our deck boat races and pleasure craft can be observed on the waters of the channel.  In the evening you can enjoy beautiful sunsets. Occasionally the moon rises over the lighthouse and is reflected in the glass like waters of the channel. These are sights to be remembered for a lifetime.

We specialize in seafood, but also have a variety of steak, chicken, and pasta dishes. Enjoy relaxed dining in a pleasant atmosphere while being served by a congenial staff.
