Had The Early Bird special . The flounder platter was very good, nice coating on the fish and the vegetables steamed just right. I was very pleased with my meal, the side where the ones I would have choosen myself. My wife was a little disappointed she would have liked a choice of sides. Service was fast and the over... More

Last night, I enjoyed a Dutch Treat Dinner with the Virginia Jaycee LMA/Senate at that restaurant. The food and drinks were great, and the BBQ Bacon Wrapped Shrimp/BBQ Rib combo, which comes with potatoes and vegetables, that I ordered was fabulous! I even had a great time with the members of the Virginia Jaycee Life Members (LMA) and the members... More

The look of this restaurant has little to differentiate it from the other seafood restaurants in the tourist area of Virginia Beach. The restaurant has a typical nautical decor and sits on Rudee inlet overlooking a marina. Five of us went on a Saturday evening to take advantage of the local restaurant week. We each selected the sampler entree from... More

We all enjoyed the afternoon and will continue... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our daughter. She and her hubby have gone there before. The service was fantastic and the food superb!! We didn't realize it before going but from 3:00-4:30 they have early bird specials and you can save some bucks!! We will definitely go back.

I have lived in the area thirty years, and have visited four times, and it seems to be the same every visit. If you wonder why four times..... date night, meeting people already there wanting to try it. I have always had slow, bad service, and the food has ranged from fair to poor, and a little over priced (... More

On Friday's they have two whole lobsters for $25 dinner special. Being from the midwest, I haven't been exposed to whole lobster, just the occasional tail on special occasions. It was good. I would definitely be willing to try something else off their menu next time in Virginia Beach.
