This place was highly recommended but of 4 entrees, 3 appetizers, plus key lime pie nothing was worth going back for, except for maybe the Blueberry soda. Trying to be fair here but sorry don't see the attraction.

When I lived in VA Beach, my wife and I would make this the first stop on our date nights. We actually changed Date Night to Monday's just for their Prime Rib. It is outstanding. Slow cooked all day and it's so tender you can cut it with your spoon if you had too. We love their seafood too. When... More

After reviewing the mountain of coupon/specials booklets in this area, we choice to try this restaurant out, as it advertised 14.99 specials. We arrived to find a nice location with out table overlooking the cove with numerous working boats docked right in front of us. The restaurant is done in a Cape Cod style, very nicely. Our server was very... More

It was our last night in town to gather together to enjoy a good meal with a dozen-plus friends and associates before traveling home following a training symposium in Virginia Beach. Rockafeller's was the perfect place to wrap it up. The lobster special was a big hit, but so was the tuna, seafood combo, and every other entree devoured by... More

They were probably 1of the 3 best crab cakes I've ever had and I get them everywhere! I am also very... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful rainy day lunch lunch here today, our 42nd wedding anniversary! How can that be? I am only 43??? The restaurant was very attractive from the road, with nice parking. FYI, parking is much easier on Rudee's Inlet compared to the oceanfront. We were seated at a waterfront table, overlooking the fishing boats that... More

We just hosted a rehearsal dinner at Rockafeller's for our son and new daughter-in-law and it was fabulous...the food was terrific (loved the seafood au gratin) and desserts were fabulous. The service from the time we booked the event through the dinner was the most responsive, friendly, efficient, etc that I have ever experienced. Brian, the manager, was super accommodating... More

This place was great, but a little pricey. It was worth it though. If you can sit by the window or upstairs so you can look at the water and the boats. The seafood was well seasoned and the corn bread was warm. The service was great. Ladies, if you are wearing heels, hold on to someone going up that... More

Great seafood, I had the fried shrimp and it's the best I've had. Also the oysters are quite popular. They have an excellent Sunday morning breakfast that is very reasonable.
