Fried Oysters and Crab Soup, Yum!

Stopped here for lunch at the recommendation of a local as a place for seafood. Good Call! Kitschy atmosphere with over-the-top sportfishing theme, but interesting none-the-less. Help was cheerful and prompt and the fried oysters, and She-Crab soup were outstanding!

I've been here at least 50 times. Being a local, I get lots of visitors who want seafood and this is where I take them. Not the world's best seafood restaurant, but plenty good and a pleaser for my friends.

We visited the Lucky Oyster on a Sunday Evening and were impressed with the homey atmosphere and the nautical décor. We ordered a calamari Appetizer and it was fair. It was slightly over cooked and a little rubbery. The bread crumb coating used was a little coarse and detracted from the overall taste. We then ordered three items for dinner:... More

This was a place where you could get really great east coast seafood. The crab cakes are truly Maryland style. Red beans and rice are wonderful We will make this a regular stop when in Va Beach

Dinner with friends is always special and what better yet with good food at a great place. Was at Lucky Oyster for dinner and got lucky as it is the last day of Restaurant Week. Great deal for $20. Appetizers of calamari and the basket of bread is always a great start. The shrimp and scallops on penne, yummy. Visit... More

My son & his family live in V.B. & every time Gramma rolls into town we have to visit the Lucky Oyster. The kids & adults love the hodge podge of clams, mussels, shrimp & crab plus veggies called Lucky's Marina. The small portion for around $50 is enough to feed 4 or 5 people easily. I highly recommend this... More

Excellent Old Bay Wings! The atmosphere is laid back and the menu is great. Everything from the raw bar to the dinner menu gives you lots of options!

On a work trip in Virginia Beach and searched Trip Advisor for a restaurant specializing in oysters. After looking at a couple reviews of different restaurants, we decided on the Lucky Oyster Restaurant. All I can say is...it's DELICIOUS! We ordered 1 dozen steamed and 1 dozen raw oysters from the Happy Hour menu and then ordered Oysters Rockefeller. OMGoodness...they... More

Beautifully decorated, excellent service, superlative food. The best fried shrimp anywhere. I had pan seared tuna which was perfectly done with a warship sauce.
