Nice Setting and Good Music

A reasonable place for a quick bite and drinks. On the water dining. Stopped by around 9PM on Saturday and heard some good music. Drummer was amazing.

We sat outside over the water and enjoyed watching ( and feeding) the ducks. Food was delicious, Best hush puppies I have ever had. I ordered fish and chips that were out of this world fresh. It didn't look like much from the outside, but that was just fine once we got inside. Will return.

If you want to sit outside overlooking the water, O'Sullivan's Wharf provides the opportunity for casual food and pleasant atmosphere. The inside is also casual, but I thought it could use some spiffing up. The side dining room has large windows for a view and light. The bar is a nice place to gather with friends. The restaurant has a... More

We were here earleir this month (June, 2014). We all has seafood which was delicious all around. Service was good, the atmosphere couldn't be complained about, and the location was alright. Easy to find, seats available, and plenty of food with each meal.

I don't live in the area anymore, but whenever I'm in town I go there for the fried fish sandwich. I think it's Cod, but it's HUGE and is outstanding. Price was very good. This place may not be for everyone, but it definitely has the local flavor of Norfolk and the friendly people. Always a good band to hear... More

I love the owners, entertainment, food, and environment. I loved the crab cake ordered for me by a friend. The she crab soup is great! The people here are very friendly and seem to enjoy themselves as well as the music. I like the Greek Salad the best in this place. I highly recommend it.

Had catch of the day (flounder) for dinner, well prepared with a healthy vegetable sauce. Service was OK, friendly staff, nice live music. Not a fancy nor sophisticated place but worth the money.

Ordered blackened tuna. Got grilled tuna. This is usually okay, but this tuna was well beyond the point where it should've gone in the trash. Took it home for the dog, but it smelled up my car, and not with a fishy smell. Something skanky. But the dog enjoyed it. I guess it beat kibble. Service was good, except for... More
