Description: Located minutes from Chesapeake Bay on the water is One Fish-Two Fish. We offer an alternative to formal dining, it's what we call "fun dining." The atmosphere is "upscale without the uppity." This unique feeling is created by a casual waterfront environment with boat access. The restaurant is centered around the Exhibition Kitchen with panoramic views of the Bay. The menu incorporates a blend of California style with fresh, local seafood. The wine list focuses on "boutique style" wines and is consistently recognized with the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence." Stephen Michaels, owner, and his staff strive to make this venue high energy but still elegant. The only thing we overlook is the water. See you there.

though not for me, I can honestly see how folks would enjoy this place very much. Very high end dining in a premium spot (on the water) which would be perfect for a first date or drinks after work - but with a limited menu (about 8-10 main dishes) and high price, just wasn't my style. Worth taking a look... More

This restaurant is about 20 minutes from downtown and is right on the water. Our dinner reservations were for 7:15 and we were seated outside with a perfect view of the sunset. The food was good, although my crab cakes were a little too bready for my taste. Our party also had the fried flounder and the tuna, both of... More

Perfectly situated on a private marina, One Fish Two Fish serves up some of the best seafood on the east coast. Featuring a large dining room, open kitchen, and a friendly, energetic bar, the restaurant attracts a mature, attractive, and smartly dressed clientele. If that is what you're searching for, along with a top flight kitchen, extensive wine list, and... More

One Fish Two Fish has a premier location on the Lynnhaven River at the end of a marina. This is a sizable restaurant with an inside dining room, a good bar area, glassed-in party room and an outside deck. You can enjoy a casual dinner on the deck, a sit down table for ten or a wedding reception with a... More

The best thing about One Fish Two Fish is you have several atmosphere options in this restaurant - you can 1) sit at the bar or high top tables, 2) sit at the bar around the open kitchen to watch the action there, 3) sit outside, 4) sit in the regular restaurant table section. I love that there are so... More

Annual college roommate reunion and we always try to go to a higher end restaurant for dinner. Atmosphere was nice, a little dark and an older crowd (we are mid 40's, most people in the place were 55+ (maybe because of the cost??). Two of us had the crab soup which was good, the other two shared a salad which... More

If you are in Virginia Beach it will take you a good 20 minutes by car to get to this restaurant but it is worth the drive. Situated on a busy marina and decorated with a maritime theme, it is a great setting for a seafood dinner. The service was impeccable and the food was very good. Local fish, great... More

It had been awhile since we visited 1 Fish 2 Fish as we always considered it overpriced for the food and service. Our previous impressions were once again confirmed. Delicious food, fish cooked extremely well, and one of the few restaurants in VB with water views. But, $8.95 for a salad, and $12 average for appetizers? Really? Main dishes, while... More

We called ahead but there were no tables until late on a Saturday night- just as you would expect in July. We were told we could try the bar seats. We arrived and were seated right away. Nice selection of beer- craft beers on tap- and wine. The service was great- very knowledgeable about the menu. Even though we were... More

I've never had a bad meal/experience there (been several dozen times). Food and drinks are higher price, since like real estate, you're paying for location, location,location (and the view).
