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.

We were in VA Beach for one week as our daughter could not travel due to her work and kid. We took our grandson with us to this very good restaurant on the water close to our daughter's residence with option that if grandson will create problems, they will come and get him. It was grandma and grandpa's date with... More

I wanted to reach out to you and thank you for the kind review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your meal, the ambiance and that you received great service. I did want to clear up a misunderstanding. At the bottom of your receipt, there is a promotion for New Year's Eve. We use this space to alert guests to upcoming... More

We were a party of eight with two children. Our food was delicious especially the rockfish and flounder. Our service was excellent. We had a wonderful visit with our friends and their children.

I used to eat here a lot and had drifted away over the last few years. The bar scene is much quieter now but the food is still consistently good. The service is good, not excellent but sufficient for a good restaurant. The fish and beef entrees are both very good, the flounder is typically a favorite. Not the cheapest... More

This lovely restaurant has restored my faith in good food in Virginia beach this evening. Having had some truly awful meals of late locally we were not expecting too much but were very pleasantly surprised. Everything about this place is just right and NOT over the top. Table settings are not fussy. The service is not too obtrusive yet staff... More

It's a very nice restaurant, but not so much of a seafood place as the name would suggest. Went with some friends who told us it was "moderately priced". Entrees were $21-$30+ and included no salad. Service was certainly adequate, but not over-the-top. All the food was excellent; I got the fried flounder which was a generous portion and totally... More

This is a great choice if you like to dine on the water and watch the boats pass. The menu doesn't change all that often so the daily specials are often the best choice. The seafood never disappoints.

This was by far one of the best overall experiences I have had in the VA Beach area. I sat outside and watched the sun go down along a gorgeous canal. The food was over the top delicious. I ordered the oysters with spinach and some sort of cream. I made sure not to leave one morsel in the shell!... More

These guys follow the KISS principle to the tee. We have been traveling to VA beach for years. And, One-Fish is consistently good and simple. For those of you familiar with the Hilton Head Island Area, it is reminiscent of the Old Oyster Factory both in setting and quality. Setting: beautifully perched away from the oceanfront but still on a... More
