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.

New to the Norfolk area we were looking for some seafood in a pub atmosphere. The bar scene seemed friendly and happy. It is winter now, but the deck and location looked fun for warm weather. But the food, which is why we went there was very disappointing. We ordered the days special calamari for a starter which was 75%... More

There are many better places to eat in Norfolk, but you'll not find one friendlier. If you have not been to O'Sully's you must have: She Crab soup, Hush Puppies (with honey), 'trash can lid' Nachos, all of the Wings, and a few of the specials... Steaks and Sandwiches are good too! As much as it saddens me, the seafood... More

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
