We stopped here because every other place was about a two hour wait and we could get right in. Parking is a nightmare. First our waiter was awesome(I wish I knew his name). Cornbread was very good, drinks good but beer selection seemed limited. Lots of fried food on the menu not really what we wanted. First time any of... More

My wife and I found this place via recommendation from a local. The parking is kind of a mess, they offer valet if you're in to that type of thing. I was a tad frustrated, I made a reservation for 630pm outside, we showed up and it was still going to be 20mins until we were seated. It was my... More

This experience was such a disappointment. We had the worst meals of our vacation here. The restaurant smelled badly and the restrooms were filthy. Our food was edible at best. I had the grilled tuna with mango salsa and was very disappointed. The tuna was not fresh and it was dry. I have definitely had better mango salsa. There were... More

The restaurant is definitely a great beach restaurant. We reserved a table via trip advisor which worked out great! There was a 30-45 minute wait so being that our kids were starving & it was already 8:30, the immediate seating was fantastic! We got a table outside overlooking the bay. Great view! The food was good. The basil vinegrette dressing... More

As a Virginia Beach local, this is hands-down my favorite restaurant. The menu selection is outstanding. Prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is wonderful. You can dress up or down and feel fine either way as you gaze out the windows at beautiful Rudee Inlet. The food is always delicious. This time I got the crab cake and bbq shrimp -... More
