Have been coming here for a long time and brought many first-timers and visitors in the past. Party of 9 last night, all others were first-timers we treated on our recommendation, and was very bad, even though the restaurant was never more than 2/3 full on a Saturday night. Here are some reasons why: 1. Food. Flounder special--was broiled...some parts... More

We went last night as part of a group of 20. This nice restaurant handled us very professionally and efficiently. The food was very good, service also very good and I loved my shecrab soup and fish tacos. Everyone said their meal was good. A few people in our group had eaten here before, it was our first time and... More

We celebrated my sister 60 birthday here. Dinner. It was terrific! Waitress was fantastic! Being there at the water was breathtaking. I've told friends that haven't been there- they've got to go

I visit this restaurant when I want decent seafood at a reasonable price. The fried seafood platter is a favorite for most. The crabcakes are the closest I've had to my beloved Maryland crabcakes. Not the place to have steaks if you are a steak lover, but definitely go for the steamed broccoli. You'll thank me later. Enjoy

I don't like seafood so I really can't talk about most of the menu. I can tell you that my in-laws, who LOVE seafood and are very selective about where they go, REALLY like Surfrider! The wraps and burgers are good too! Service can be so-so to very good, depends on who you get. Go on a nice day, sit... More

The crab cakes are to die for. I even added a soft shell crab on top of my crab cake sandwich and was in heaven. The ole bay chips suck though.

Best Crab Cakes in Hampton Roads. Other sea food is very good. Very noisy because it is a small place to get. Usually a wait, but worth it. Not cheap, but not very expensive.

We had a late lunch here looking for a good crab cake. Service was quite patchy - it took a long time to get our order taken and then for some reason the fries could not be served with our meals and came quite a few minutes later. Food was tasty - we had crab cake and also the broiled... More

Wonderful atmosphere and great food. I have lived in area 20 plus years and never been. It was absolutely wonderful. The wait staff were eager to please and I was very surprised at the great quality of the food considering the prices were so very reasonable! GO!!
