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.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 NEW

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).

You certainly can't beat the view from inside or out with the spectacular sunsets and our waitress was spot on. However, dinner was good but no wow factor. We ordered the calamari and scallop dishes for appetizers and the scallops were very tasty but the calamari was more onion rings than anything, short on sauce and no tentacles.....not the yummy...

Everything we ordered was delicious but especially the halibut and the shrimp and crab pasta. Oh and the ghirardelli chocolate brownie! Atmosphere was nice, staff was accommodating, restrooms were clean. Definitely on the pricey side.

We loved the atmosphere , the server royal was amazing and special. Filet mignon was great , my friends loved the stuffed crab flounder. Definitely worth the ride.

I think our expectations may have been too high. The view was lovely, the mussels were some of the best I'd eaten, loved the bloody mary broth. The entree was good but unmemorable.

Having ate here once before and enjoyed a wonderful meal (with spotty service) decided to try it again. Almost like a carbon copy. Food was outstanding but service not so much. Very friendly wait person who immediately brough water for all of us but took 15 minutes to bring a bottle of wine. The food was simply superb. All of... More

We decided to try One Fish Two Fish to cap off our 3 week vacation in the OBX and VB area. At first I was a little skeptical because the receptionist who took my 5pm reservation on the phone was a little rude. Nonetheless we showed up at 5pm and were seated promptly and politely. The restaurant is a great... More

I've eaten at OFTF several times. Really, how can you beat this place, especially the view? I take friends here when I want to have them experience the glories of Virginia Beach: sunset on shimmering water, the marina, the fresh seafood, the colorful bar scene. But don't think booze (although that's great here too). It's all about the fresh, fresh... More
