This locals bar is rough around the edges, but makes up for it with much better than average food and atmosphere. Be ready for loud music, loud tv's, loud patrons and loud bartenders. Your attitude will determine your enjoyment. Drinks are served quickly ( and strongly ) We had the Oysters Rock - very good, Cream of Crab Soup -... More

I want to start off first by saying that my girlfriend and I are staying on the beach off season and its a not busy anywhere. I had a $25 restaurant.com voucher and we decided that this seemed worth checking out. We walked in to only a few people at the bar and one other booth occupied(I love going to... More

Many years ago we stumbled upon the Seaside Raw Bar in Virginia Beach, and have made a point to visit every time we come for vacation. There is nothing fancy about this place, but the steamed shrimp and crab legs are the best you will find. With just the right amount of Old Bay seasoning they are terrific! They also... More

My friend and I stopped in here to grab some food and escape from the rain. We were the only people in the place. The servers were incredibly nice. We had crab legs and shrimp and they were both very good. The bathrooms were rough, very small ceiling tiles missing it seemed clean enough but needs some work. Live music... More

My wife and I love to come to Seaside Raw Bar for dinner and drinks. Seaside advertises that it's "where the locals come" and I don't blame them, this place rocks!! I'm not a local but when I am in Virginia Beach I make sure I visit Seaside. I need to give a shot out to Andy the bartender and... More

We had the grilled shrimp on a skewer. It didn't taste quite right so i thought it was me. Had it boxed up and put it in our fridge at hotel across the street. Went to eat it next morning and the smell was horrid. I did not get sick but sure won't go back.

I went to this restaurant based on the reviews. I'm not sure who wrote these; but there is no way it was the customers. I am a Detroiter; I am not afraid of anything, but I know when there are issues in an area. When you see 4 to 5 police officers on every corner; it's a clue that this... More
