Excellent seafood and service but !!!

We came here for our last evening out before heading home the next day. Valet parking was not expected when I arrived. We requested upper deck seating that is outside. With the look of the place inside we were both expecting something different when we went upstairs. Nice wooding tables with cheap... read more

Great family dinner in Rudy's Inlet! Pros: offer GREAT "Early Bird" specials until 5:30pm (includes salad, meal, sides, & dessert for around $14); good specialty drinks; FREE sweet corn bread with meal (very good); have great selection of appetizers (the calamari, oysters Rockefeller, & hush puppies were awesome); great selection of meals (seafood & non-seafood); offer kid meals; seating on...

We visited Rockafeller's and originally were a little disappointed that they close the deck area earlier then the restaurant but once seated we were greeted by our waiter Bill! My original disappointment completely vanished! He was one of the best waiters that I have had and being an ex waitress I am not easily impressed. He was very friendly and... More

Reading other reviews, I was looking forward to dining here. I'll start by saying that the service is second to none. The valet was very friendly, We were seated precisely at our reservation time, and our server could not have been more attentive or knowledgable. I had the tuna with mango sauce. It was very good and cooked as ordered.... More

We love Rockefeller's. We arrived a little before 6 and had no wait. The upstairs deck had a beautiful breeze and our server was friendly and attentive. All 3 of our entrées were well prepared and delicious.

Love this place....it is a moderate priced restaurant but the specials are great...yum. We did not have to wait but if you come after 5:00 it starts getting crowded. But plenty of seating inside and outside overlooking the inlet. Very nice.

Always has been exceptional as we dine there every summer during our vacation, but it has always been in the evening. This year we had a friend drive in from 1 1/2 hrs, away and time was an issue so we went on Sunday afternoon but still ordered off the main menu. I believe they had a cook in training... More

Staff was very friendly and helpful with my 2 grandchildren.Service was fast. View was beautiful. They had the best hush puppies I have ever tasted. Even the ones from Red Lobster didn't come near the flaky goodness.

We found a menu for this place in one of the Virginia Beach guides and decided to try it out. It was definitely the best meal we had during our week long visit to VB. I had the stuffed shrimp, which were perfectly cooked, stuffed full of crab, and delicious. My wife had the grilled salmon w/ crabmeat. Also delicious,... More

Situated on Rudee Inlet, Rockafellar's is off the beaten path for most. The seafood and view are both second to none. Pricey but worth every dollar spent. Get there early.
