We've eaten here each time we come to the beach over the past 6 years. Food is always fresh and well prepared. Wish they had more grilled or broiled options. Steamed or fried appeared to be the main options. Kids meals are $6.99 butthe chicken finger basket would feed 2 kids easily. We like eating outside and watching the boats.... More

When visiting Virgina Beach, we ALWAYS dine at Rockafeller's. Their food is always good! The view is fantastic! We've always had good service. The waiters/waitresses are courteous and knowledgeable. Great place to dine!

This was our first time at Rockafeller's and the food was good but nothing spectacular. I had the crab cake sandwich. It was good but needed more flavor. My husband had the fish tacos and said they were really good. Kids had chicken tenders. Overall good food & service. Our waitress was very nice.

Made a reservation thru open table and got seated right away. Witch was really super nice. Being a local and not getting close to any kinds of tourist places in the middle of summer might have made me re think that. Our server Anthony was great, on the ball the hole evening. The hole dining experience was great from the... More

Have gone there for many years and have never been disappointed. Nice setting off Rudee's Inlet. Very busy, noisy so not the place for a quiet intimate evening. But fine for a family. Good early bird specials. Service very good.

The best place to eat by far! We eat here every year on our vacation to Virginia Beach. I see others have left bad reviews… Not sure why. We had a great experience as always from the valet parking to the waitress to the food! Will definitely be back again next year!

My date and I had a most enjoyable and fun evening while dinning at your restaurant. The deck was busy and after a long rainy day it was nice to get to go out and enjoy ourselves. We started with a bottle of Riesling and Oyster Rockafeller appetizer both suggestions by Poppy our server. My date had the fried shrimp... More

We had dinner last week at Rockafellers. The food was amazing. I cannot say enough good things about our appetizers. Oysters Rockafeller to die for.....the crab balls added just the right touch. Our dinners were cooked to perfection. Even though the restaurant was full, our service was fantastic. A big shout out to your staff for our memorable night out...

We came to this establishment a few days ago, and it was a first time back since last. I must say everything is still excellent. My husband ordered the Tidewater steamer and I had the stuffed flounder which my waitress suggest; and it was all great! Then we ordered desserts to go! Our service was wonderful as always. Leanna did... More
