The seafood here was absolutely amazing! For starters we had a plate of oysters Rockafeller, with fried shrimp, spicy shrimp, and crab cakes, all great tasting. For main meal I had the salmon filet that was cooked to perfection and great taste! For desert the key lime was delicious, but unfortunately just couldn't finish it from all the food we... More

My husband and I couldn't wait to try this place. The atmosphere is great, they have nice decor and the inlet view is beautiful. The service was average but the food was disappointing. By the time it got to us it was dry and nearing room temperature, and there were only about four other couples in the restaurant so the... More

Monday night prime rib special can't be beat. Steamed rice was surprisingly light a fluffy, not a wad of starch that a lot of restaurants serve. Go hungry or go home!

In town with my husband for a long weekend, we found Rockefeller's when my husband was seeking a shrimp dinner. What a great find for dinner! We started with the Hot Crab Dip and, for entrees, I had the Crab, Shrimp and Scallop pasta, and he got his shrimp dinner. Then came the Carrot Cake dessert- wow. It was a... More

1 PM Saturday, just arrived in VB for the week. Wanted to go to Big Sam's, but it was jammed, very noisy, and had a hour wait, so we went down the street to Rockafeller's. We were seated pretty quickly in a window table....really only the window tables were really full, with the interior tables very scarcely populated. Anyway, beautiful... More

Tried for the first time for lunch and had the best seafood ever! Fish taco's that were enormous and I could barely finish. Wasn't that expensive either for what we got. Will go back anytime I visit VA Beach!

Someone recommended this place to us while visiting. We were not as impressed with the food or service. Maybe it was my expectations of seafood from the name and waterfront view. It does have a nice water view. Request a window seat for the best seating. They serve great bread! The only choice of salad was o Caesar, the lettuce... More

The restaurant is off the beaten path and frequented by the locals which is what is so great about it, the food is absolutely marvelous. It is affordable meaning that you could go here more than one night a week and not break the bank. The drinks are very, very good and very affordable. The night I was there I... More

I've had dinner here two times. In the Summer of 2013, I didn't have ONE bad thing to say. This past summer, it was terrible. Bad service. Our waiter was rude. Our food was cold. One of the worst experiences I've ever had at a restaurant. We sat outside on the upper deck. It was hot and HUMID. I also... More
