Visited the place for the first time. Heard a lot about this place and wanted to try it. The outside decor looked inviting and relaxed. Soon as you get in, everything changed. Wasn't sure if the restaurant was a formal dining place. Yes, the service was good. The server was very attentive. But it appears more that the formal decor... More

Fresh seafood, beautiful view, varied menu and great service make this one of the best restaurants in Va Bch. We had: oysters on the half shell, steamed shrimp, she crab soup and seafood pie. Our refreshments were excellent bloody mary's and the the finest (white) sangria I have ever had. Highly recommended.

Visited on the recommendation of others but found the food to be only average. We ordered both the crab cakes and stuffed shrimp entrees and found them to be bland. Their house salad dressing, a vinaigrette with feta was tastey though. View from the dining room was fabulous.

had lunch here Friday 21st March. As other have mentioned , the views are fantastic and the food was very good. She crap soup with sherry for starters was rich and creamy. Crab cakes with fries and home made tartare were very tasty as was the grilled tuna steak along with homemade potato salad. A bit on the pricey side... More

The Lynnhaven Fish House is one of our special occasion restaurants. When we're celebrating a special event or when we want an elegant evening out, we like to go there. Their she-crab soup is superb and the service is excellent. Situated right on the Chesapeake Bay, the view and atmosphere are outstanding.

We look forward to visiting the Fish House every time we are in VB. This time was lunch. We had baked rockfish and a flounder sandwich with she crab soup for appetizers. The soup was the only downside to the meal and it wasn't a big downside. I always rated Lynnhaven's she crab soup the best. This time something was... More

I have been going to the Lynnhaven Fish House for years. The staff and food are out of this world. The seafood is fresh and the home made potato chips at the bar and very good. The only changes I would make would be the deserts.
