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.

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

I sat down in the bar and Jason was amazing bartender. He knows he stuff. He prepared delicious different kind of cocktails and he had 5 star customer service. The steak was so delicious but the appetizers was really disappointed. The seafood wasn't impressive at all. The place is beautiful good customer service but they need to improve in the... 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

Been to many bars and I must say that Nacho is one of best. He is funny, responsive and a great wing man even for a date. He makes the experience even more fun. This deserves big tips and a raise!!!!!!

After many recommendations & reviews, I was expecting something more exciting than the dinner I had at One Fish, Two Fish. The She-Crab soup was good but a little heavy, and Catch of the Day entree was just okay. The atmosphere is very nice, especially sitting outside by the water's edge.

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
