We were in Virginia Beach for a couple of days visiting family and enjoying our anniversary. At the last minute we decided to look for a nice place that was a little bit different than the usual restaurants out there. Rockefellers will not disappoint. Our waitress, Katerin, was very knowledgeable of the menu, very friendly and checked on us often... More

Exceptional seafood entree choices prepared fresh and served fast. Beautiful views from most seats of the inlet, but dining area is small and quickly feels cramped as the restaurant fills.

I really wish rockafeller's did a little bit more to impress. The food is good, but ordinary at best. No spice, no creativity. The outside patio is a great place to hang out and enjoy the marina views. Definately worth going to to enjoy in the summer.

This restaurant had many offers for lunch and dinner, with kosher fish or non-kosher seafood choices. You could also get burgers, sandwiches, salads, and desserts. The beer selections from a local brewery were nice to offer to tourists like me, but the food was the best part of the meal. Even a small lunch plate had so much food you... More

The seafood here was absolutely amazing! For starters we had a plate of oysters Rockafeller, with fried shrimp, spicy shrimp, and crab cakes, all great tasting. For main meal I had the salmon filet that was cooked to perfection and great taste! For desert the key lime was delicious, but unfortunately just couldn't finish it from all the food we... More

My husband and I couldn't wait to try this place. The atmosphere is great, they have nice decor and the inlet view is beautiful. The service was average but the food was disappointing. By the time it got to us it was dry and nearing room temperature, and there were only about four other couples in the restaurant so the... More

Monday night prime rib special can't be beat. Steamed rice was surprisingly light a fluffy, not a wad of starch that a lot of restaurants serve. Go hungry or go home!

In town with my husband for a long weekend, we found Rockefeller's when my husband was seeking a shrimp dinner. What a great find for dinner! We started with the Hot Crab Dip and, for entrees, I had the Crab, Shrimp and Scallop pasta, and he got his shrimp dinner. Then came the Carrot Cake dessert- wow. It was a... More

1 PM Saturday, just arrived in VB for the week. Wanted to go to Big Sam's, but it was jammed, very noisy, and had a hour wait, so we went down the street to Rockafeller's. We were seated pretty quickly in a window table....really only the window tables were really full, with the interior tables very scarcely populated. Anyway, beautiful... More
