Found this place because of Trip Advisor. Went for Brunch on Saturday and we weren't disappointed! Nice Bloody Mary, and good oysters, made even better by the days special. $6.50 for a plate full of fried oyster goodness? Yes, please and thank you. Needless to say, we plan on returning.

Recently returned to Norfolk and was so excited to check out this restaurant that friends and family were talking about. I'm still wandering what they are talking about.... After an afternoon at the beach, we decide this would be a great way to top off the night so we stop by and sit on the beautiful patio and that is... More

My hubby spotted this cute place from the highway. After reading the good reviews on TA, decided to stop in for dinner after a long day of college orientation. First, the seating is fun. We love eating outside and although that wasn't available, the hostess quickly found us a hightop on the side bar area. It was perfect. The music... More

Relaxed atmosphere. Good beer selection and a great selection of local fish and shellfish. Really enjoyed it. Well worth visiting.

We went here for Sunday brunch. The menu items were really unique, my husband had a oyster and bacon omelet and he said it was excellent. I was boring and had a veggie frittata but it was tasty. We also tried the crab mac and cheese - LOVED it! The portions are large. We sat outside on the deck and... More

We tried this restaurant based on the good reviews we had read on Tripadvisor. We were certainly glad we did. Captain Groovy's has a great daily happy hour deal on appetizers and drinks. We ordered the steamed oysters which were delicious. They also have several draft brews from which to choose with the ones available listed on a huge blackboard... More

We had a party of 6 and were seated almost immediately. Our server took our drink order as soon as we sat down. We ordered an appetizer and it came out in a reasonable amount of time. We had the nachos with chicken and bacon. It was enough to feed our entire table. When we ordered, I was disappointed that... More

Our experience for family group was outstanding, from manager Kelly to waitress Lee, everyone was friendly and professional. The food was amazing, the plates were 4226 Granby St and everyone was happy. Thank you Captain Groovy's, you helped bring 2 families together for a great new start.

I met a friend here for a late lunch and will definitely go back! The service was excellent from the greeting through payment if the check. Our server was happy to answer questions and make a recommendation and bragged on the kitchen staff...a good thing. I ordered the She Crab Soup, a salad and the Crabbie Mac...all were delicious and... More

Split a dinner with my mom as portions are very generous. Other entrees selected were fried oysters and Catch of the Day fish. All portions were generous and tasty. The outdoor patio was very pleasant, AD we got extra hushpuppies when one of the meals was slightly delayed. Extra tasty morsels are always welcome!
