Simply the best of Virginia Beach.

There isn't much to put the finger on here. Food, staff, environment, it is all great. Best seafood experience in a long time. Reasonably priced. The host and the hostess are hands on with everything, and you can't feel more welcome than here. There's no table reservations so prepare to wait up... read more

Wonderful service. Light fare was excellent and the entrees were even better than the menu sounded. Don't miss this place if in the area.

The food and the service at this restaurant is second to nobody anywhere. Everything they do with crab is far exceeding anywhere else you might get crab, they have amazing specials but anything on their menu that we have tried has been phenomenal. If you are heading to Virginia Beach you need to make this at least one of your... More

Blue was a little hard to find, even with the GPS, but I'm so glad we persevered. Dinner was delicious. My husband had the crab bisque as an appetizer, and crab cakes with an organic baked sweet potato and fresh vegetables. He loved everything. I started the meal with a Blue salad- greens, pecans, berries, and gorgonzola cheese. Light and... More

An unassuming location in a small strip shopping center, this one packs a big "Wow!". One of the best meals I've had in the tidewater area. Chef-owned by a young man who is extremely accomplished in his field. Food is a more grown up and sophisticated than most restaurants in the area. Service is impeccable and everyone there seems genuinely... More

We have some pretty good seafood restaurants in this area and this is by far, one of the best. The tables are few so you may have to wait but it's worth it. One of my favorite dishes is the salmon Oscar. What I like most is the owner /chef will frequently visit every table and will only use seasonal... More

I had been hearing about this place for some time! Went early for me, on a Friday, around 6PM. Waited only a few minutes. Service was excellent! Very impressive was the manner in which the staff worked together to clear tables and serve customers! Also impressive was the fact the owner/chef Charles , as he identified himself , came out...
