This restaurant was a delicious choice for us. It has a nice variety of menu options to choose from and gorgeous views. The staff were very accommodating to our toddler who is oblivious to table manners. The cornbread was delicious and the entire family was pleased with their meal choices. We appreciated the helpfulness of our waiter.

When I travel, I always like to find places that the locals enjoy. Well, Rockefeller's is one place in Virginia Beach that this particular local truly enjoys. Great views of boats coming and going, the nearby Pirate boat loading and unloading, get a window table if possible. Wonderful specials, and quality is consistent despite the tourist influx. Children are welcome,... More

Looking for a nice seafood restaurant in VA Beach for dinner. The place seem nice, but the food left a lot to be desired. You'd get better seafood at Red Lobster. Everything was pre-prepared and reheated and overcooked.

After we figured that out.. We got a great drink by the female bartender.. The meal was so so. We are... More

We had a private party for 25 here on the covered deck for a birthday dinner and I can't rave enough about the service from Rockafellers from setting up the reservation to our fabulous waiter, Justin. I would highly recommend for reasonably priced fresh seafood fit for bringing all the kids or a romantic dinner for adults. Impeccable treatment by... More

Our reservation was lost but they did a nice job of getting us in quickly and were very nice. This place is very crowded and busy and as a result, service was quite slow. We had a great table with a nice water view. The food was fine but nothing special. We all felt like we could have done as... More

Ate here for the first time. Was recommended as a good place to eat. They were right. My wife got the scallops. They were fried to perfection. I had the crab cake and BBQ shrimp combo. Excellent. The shrimp were basted with BBQ sauce, wrapped in bacon and then grilled. A must try. The manager was seen welcoming his patrons... More
