Rockafeller's has gradually overtaken Rudee's as one of the best seafood restaurants in V.B. We visited on a Monday night (11/28) yet, the broiled stuffed Flounder and grilled Salmon were still excellent. Our soups were perfect. The great service we had from Julie was almost the best part of our visit. The only negative I could find was the noise... More

We have eaten here many times, but our waiter led us to the crab cake combinations that made for the best seafood we had at the beach this week.

I had read the (mixed) reviews of this restaurant and was a bit apprehensive as we approached the very busy parking lot, thinking we won't get a table w/o a long wait on a Saturday night. However, we not only got a table right away, we got one on the beautiful patio overlooking the harbour. it was absolutely perfect. Our... More

Four adults ate about 4:30 PM on a weeknight. The flounder Norfolk was wonderful and my husband's swordfish was the best he has had in a long time. The prices seemed reasonable. Would highly recommend it.

Excellent food. Got there early and sat in the bar and took advantage of the drink specials and oysters rockefeller for 99 cents each, so good! Had a great meal and enjoyed the view of the marina. A little pricey but we wanted to splurge on one good seafood meal over the weekend. Casual dress and comfortable setting. Nice, quiet,... More

The four of us left food on our plate due to the huge portions. One person ordered a fried seafood platter that was extremely greasy. The rest of us ordered the same except broiled. The dishes were "too heavy" due to being loaded with butter and salt. Everyone left bloated and we are not Super Sumo eaters. Great scenery and... More

Great find, off the beaten path. Very happy with the service, food and price! I was expecting it to be more upscale so we got dressed up a bit but this was not neccesary. Shorts and t's are fine. Bring a sweater though. Crowded so make a resv or get there early or go late. They serve lots of lobster... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for years- this is a great chance to share it with you! As Virginia Beach is Dog Friendly, we go there. This restaurant is a MUST stop at each time we go. Great steaks and seafood and the cholate mousse is to die for. You won't be disappointed. Average prices but there are early... More
