Dinner out

the food was good, atmosphere was ok, if you're into the bar experience. we went during the day so it was tamer than it appears it would be at night. plenty of choices for both food and drink. it's more expensive than Red Lobster and frankly I think Red Lobster has better food.

Every time we visit VA, we come here. This restaurant is located in a shopping center so it could be a Lil hard to find on your GPS. The staff is very friendly and the food is amazing. It is reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back in July!.

Fish tacos were good, with a nice blackened char and spice. She Crab Soup very delicious, with an abundance of crab swimmingly perfect inside the cup. My entourage was less impressed with a thin cut Porterhouse drowned within a reduction gravy, and whose steak applied spice profile was either forgotten or intentionally missed. For a Special, my friends received a... More

Pirate's Cove is one of our very favorite seafood restaurants to go to, even including those in Virginia Beach. Everything my husband and I have tried here is delish, and I especially LOVE the She-Crab Soup (you gotta try it!). Every night they feature "daily specials", and I would highly suggest you try them ALL! Oh, the prime rib featured... More

The seafood is wonderful ! Would recommend dinning outside if you are there for a romantic dinner, and make a reservation , they are very busy in the evening. The food is worth the price, I had scallops, they were awesome, and my husband lobster tail, wonderful place to dine.

Tuck into a strip mall, it is hard to believe that an awesome seafood restaurant exist. The atmosphere is of pirates which help with the atmosphere. The food is awesome and the staff is friendly. There must be something good about this, since there is usually a wait to get in. Please remember that this isn't a chain restaurant, this... More

Stopped In for a quick lunch had cup of the she crab soup wish I got a bowl. This is my new favorite place for this soup. Also had the wings. Great price, food. & service. You could miss it, it's in a strip mall. Don't pass it by or you will be sorry.
