When they are hitting on all cylinders this is a great place. Food is generally very good all of the time (crab cakes, she crab soup, seafood pastas... And shrimp.) Lately the service has been spotty maybe waitress turnover. Anyway... I still always drop in when in town and want seafood!

My wife and I took our daughters and 1 of their friends to eat lunch at this place based upon tripadvisor. We were flying down the highway and I saw that the location was not too far away, so we decided to give it a chance. We did not want to spend too much money, so we stuck with sandwiches... More

I had the pasta with shrimp, lobster and scallops. It was divine. My husband had steamed shrimp and crab. The service was very good and the restaurant had a nautical, casual atmosphere.

They are not stingy with their seafood. I had pasta Alfredo with scallops, shrimp and crab and there were no less than five chunks of each in the meal. Beware: Do Not sit by the kitchen as the waitresses are quite chatty, giggling, and slamming dishes. At least they were all in good moods though.

This hard to find restaurant overlooks the marina, and appears to be very popular. A casual place with pretty good seafood. I had a rum runner, the broiled seafood platter, and finished with blueberry pie a la mode. Not the best food I've eaten, but way better than anything else we ate in Hampton (I've never seen a town with... More

it's on a secluded area but once you get there you will enjoy the best seafood ever and the service is pretty good although you have to come a little early because they're crowded most of the time rain or shine.

We just came home from Surf Rider in Hampton and are so happy that we chose to have our anniversary dinner about 2:30PM. It can be very busy at this restaurant. It took 1 second to choose because we have had such good seafood there this summer. We did not see our favorite waitress, but were waited on by an... More

Upon the recommendation of locals I visited this place, despite the recent negative reviews here. I had a House Specialty Broiled Seafood Platter $22.99 which was described as "Fish of the day (Flounder), scallops, shrimp, a crab cake kissed with Old Bay and broiled to perfection." along with 2 sides...the potato salad and the Caesar salad. The sides were acceptable.... More
