We throughly enjoyed our dining experience at Rockafellers! They have the best homemade hushpuppies, crab cakes and bacon-wrapped BBQ shrimp. Our entire meal was delicious! Our server (Bill) was great; he was friendly, funny and attentive. The restaurant has ample parking with great panoramic views of Rudee Inlet from the dining room. We highly recommend dining at Rockafellers!

The is one of the best restaurants in town. Excellent service, delicious food, and beautiful views of the inlet found here. We dined here our first night on Sauteed seafood medley of jumbo shrimp, sea scallops, and lump crab meat. Everything prepared perfectly. I knew I had to return on Thursday for the 2 whole lobster dinner for $25.00. I... More

Six of us had a fun evening at Rockafeller's. I have to say that a couple of excellent Manhattan's helped! The service at the bar and the table was excellent as was the calamri we enjoyed as an appetizer. It's all about the food though and I have to say that the main courses were very good but perhaps overpriced.... More

We used trip advisor for this restaurant near our hotel. The service was impeccable, the beer was ice cold, & the hush puppies' appetizer was very tasty. I ordered the special, stuffed flounder with shrimp, crab & scallops...truly disappointed, little flavor, the scallops had a rubbery texture that was difficult to even chew, remind me of being microwaved, no taste...

Ate here for Sunday Early Dine special and came back for Mondays Prime rib special. Super service and hot good food. Nice place to go not too far from resort with a water view with boats in dock. Will be here again next October.

I ate here twice, both times during the early bird dinner time. I was warmly greeted and seated promptly. The wait staff was attentive and clearly enjoyed working there and recommending the food. The early bird comes with Caesar salad, fish entree, potatoes and medley vegetables. The first visit I had the tuna, the second visit I chose the salmon.... More

What a great find! We went on a Monday night expecting it to be slow, and it was hopping!! They had a prime rib special that they were out of when we arrived, but we went for the seafood and were not disappointed. We had salads, BBQ shrimp wrapped with bacon, and shrimp cocktail. The shrimp was some of the... More

We were in Virginia Beach, Va for a week. This was the BEST evening meal of the whole week. The fried shrimp and crab cake were to die for.

Rockafeller's has something for everyone and their Early Bird specials are sure to satisfy. Appetizer, entree, and dessert for a great price! It's also quite nice to peer out the windows upon the bay with yachts docked right there. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the area looking for a casual and pleasant experience.

We were at a table for 2, a table of 4 was seated behind us at the same time. A waiter kept going past both of us with no acknowledgement for about 30 minutes plus. We left and went to another close by restaurant where we received excellent service. I don't think I have ever been so ignored by a... More
