My friend and I visited Rockafeller's on a recent Saturday for lunch. I initially ordered the crabcake entrée. The waiter told me that the entrée was actually two crabcakes.

Good service and great hush puppies. We ate here after the shamrock race. It was a quick, good choice. The waiter was quick and attentive. We had steamed shrimp and hush puppies. Good for that food. Casual dining.

I've been fond of Rockafellers since my first visit. Pretty view, good prices, GREAT SERVICE, and AMAZING food! My fiancee and I go to the early bird as often as we can make it! Can't beat that price!

I was in Virginia Beach to help a friend celebrate his birthday when after eating dinner at one location, he said.... "Let's go to Rockafeller's for dessert." I am sure that Rockafeller's has excellent dinner food if their Rum Cake is any indication. We went solely for the Rum Cake and Oh My Goodness..... that was the BEST Rum Cake... More

Four of us enjoyed dinner at Rockefeller's on a recent Monday night. The Oysters Rockafeller were really special. We had a great table by the window and the server and the manager stopped at the table several times to engage us. They were both really great and our server (Bill Russ) was one of the funniest guys we've ever met.... More

We had great expectations but the food was ordinary fast-food quality, the cornbread tasted like Jiffy Cornbread mix, the shrimp was cold, the fried flounder tasted fishy, and the service was slow and condescending. Overall the evening was a $50.00 disappointment!

Better view and price compared to the Empire State building. Location is great too. If its open, stop by NBC studios or see the giant rockafeller Christmas tree during the holidays! Great place :)
