Typical old school

Rockafeller's is an awesome seafood eatery! Everything I have ever had here is to die for, especially the seafood items. Oysters Rockefeller, crabcake, steamed shrimp, yummy, yummy, yummy!!! Sweet cornbread with each meal and Sunday happy hour drinks such as Mimosas and bloody marys make it even better. Services is excellent! Get a table next to the window that overlooks... More

We were at a conference and found at the last minute that the hotel we were at did not save room in their restaurant for us to eat dinner. One phone call to Rockafeller's and they set up for us to get in, all 60+ of us. They even put us all together. They jockeyed waiters and had orders taken... More

Stopped for a quick lunch with friends ... great view, great food, great service. I had oysters on the half shell and crabcakes. I can't remember when I've had better. I will definitely return!

Very nice plain cooking. Oysters Rockafeller were okay...a first experience for this diner so comparison is not available. She crab soup was fine. My intrepid companion had a nice piece of Mahi Mahi. Our waitress was wonderful. Owner's son was on site...obviously a place where they care about the guests.

I was there with a friend who loved, loved, loved the she crab cream soup. My friend also had the seafood broil and said it was excellent. I have a shellfish allergy and there was plenty of other choices such as steak, chicken, salads. Service was superior and I thought the cost was reasonable.

This is one of the only seafood restrants in Hampton roads I can get my wife to go to. Not only is there seafood amazing but the Steaks are great as well. I have been to this place on many occasions and have never been disappointed.

Had a meal of salmon and veggies, the food was OK but had a long wait for the food to be prepared and the service was slow would finish my drink and would have to wait for about 10 to 15 minutes before the waiter would refil my drink.!

On Rudee Inlet off the Virginia Beach oceanfront, Rockafeller's is classy casual. A great view, and a special for Sunday buffet (love the eggs Benedict)...Lobster Night on Thursdays a must...moderate pricing, excellent service. You'll be back!
