Hungry and tired we stopped at this beach front restaurant on the way into Virginia Beach. We were greeted at the door by the owner and the hostess. Very friendly, great atmosphere but most importantly good fresh food and a good variety on the menu. The She Crab soup was delicious !

Glad to see from some of the reviews that the reviewers don't pay very close attention. This is not the Lynnhaven Fish House as some have written about, but rather a 1725 historical home. Went here after visiting the Thorogood House. The house does not have the same elaborate gardens and is lacking in the details that the Thorogood House... More

I went here with my boyfriend on our trip to Virginia Beach because it seemed like a cool tourist attraction, and it was affordable! As college students, we paid only $5 to view not only this house, but it included the Francis Land house, and the Adam Thoroughgood house. A pretty great price to visit three houses in my opinion!...

If you are picky about fresh seafood, you need to come here. Water, bay views, baby ducks walking around outside, other folks enjoying themselves. Starbucks across the street.

Each home is unique, full of history. ll in the period of 1600 - 1730 circa. The docents for each one are very knowledgeable. This one had a sense of humor as... More

I am a firm believer that the best way to learn history is to experience it. I visited here with my 2 teenage daughters on a recent visit to Regent. Our guide was very informative and interesting. She gave an extensive history of the area as well as the home itself. It is fascinating to know that the homes is... More

Our docent gave an excellent tour, really made the history of the house and family interesting. If you like historic houses see this one. If you have enough time there is a combo ticket available that includes 2 additional properties.

Lynnhaven House is a prime example of life in 1730. Guided tours are available through this beautifully maintained and furnished period home. You can still see some if the design use of glazed brick

I had so much fun on this beautiful historic house tour. A great way to spend a couple hours relaxing off the beaten path. The house tour is so interesting, guide very knowledgeable and friendly. I love hearing about life way back when. There's a beautiful herb garden maintained by the Garden Society.

I love the new educational center that is connected with Lynnhaven House. We had a fabulous tour guide and learned so much about the local history! A wonderful stop even in the rain!
