It seemed like this would be a perfect fit for us - a down home basic restaurant. The restaurant is a long low building on the street. Inside there is green oilcloth on the tables.The menu says (in part):Three things are synonymous with Deltaville - Fishing, Sailing and Taylor's Restaurant. Since 1929, we have been a welcome beacon for spirited...more
Taylor's Restaurant and McWillie's are run by the same people and they are next door to each other. Actually you enter the door for Taylors and you have a choice - go left into the restaurant or right into McWillie's. I have not been to McWillies
The Taylor's menu says "In McWillie's you can enjoy your favorite libations while watching racing or your favorite sporting event. You will enhance your entertainment while feasting on succulent oysters or clams from the raw bar or hot steamed shrimp."
An ad for the opening says "Snow Crab Legs - All you Can Eat Wednesday $29.95" until 10 pm.
This appears to be a store which rents or sells PWCs. There was a for sale sign nearby It did have merchandise outside.lighthousemarine writes: We did sell the shop. However, we moved to 43 Moores Point Rd which is just off of Fishing Bay Road. Stop by and see us for all of your PWC questions or just to say hi. Smiles are always welcome. PWCs and...more
While this shop was open when we walked by, we didn't go in. Actually, I'm not usually much interested in buying other people's art. I have too much of my own and can't even find places for it all on my walls, so I've gifted each of my children with one or more of my paintings. After 40 years of establishing a successful insurance business, local...more
When we walked around Deltaville, I saw this sign, and thought at first that the little house that is past it was the Gallery. After I walked a little farther, I saw that the actual gallery is about a half block back off the street. I don't think it was open that late on a Wednesday.more
The dominent building on the Deltaville main street is the Philippi Christian Church (17276 General Puller Highway, P.O. Box 555, Deltaville VA 23043) so naturally I took a picture of it. The sign on the front says it was founded in 1871. The church is apparently a center of community affairs, but I couldn't find anything out about the building...more
I walked by the library and tried to take a photo, but it was difficult because it was almost completely in shadow. The library was having a book sale. It is at 35 Lover's Lane.The public library in Middlesex County, Virginia traces its beginning to 1915 when fifteen ladies formed a book club for the purpose of exchanging and enjoying the pleasures...more

As we came into the Piankatank, we heard several other boats on the VHF radio who apparently were coming in to anchor in Jackson Creek. One of them told the other that Skipper Bob's book had several possible anchorages in it. Pay attention to the charts and put all the markers in order on the correct side of the boat, otherwise the shoal that...more
Deltaville is at the end of a long peninsula which ends at Stingray Point. Someone told me that they saw a flotilla of rays swimming along near the surface, so Stingray Point is appropriately named. Sadly, I have not seen this myself.
Deltaville is in a perfect position for boaters to get to the Chesapeake to sail or fish or engage in other water sports. There are marinas on both rivers. It has been known as the boat building capital of the Chesapeake.
Fondest memory: Our friends met us at the boat and took us to the West Marine store and we looked around the boatyards. Then we went to dinner in Gloucester.
