I heard about this place through good friends. This is the second time we ate here. Well, the food was delicious and the service was excellent! Try the crab soup...fabulous....Our waitress (her name was Julie) was a great server and recommended all the tasty dishes that we enjoyed so much!

Food was good but everyone in our party agreed that everything was too salty. Presentation was great, service was great! We will return!

We stayed across the street at the Virginia Beach Resort and Conference Center, and walked over to Hot Tuna for appetizers one night. We were delighted with the Spinach and Artichoke Dip, the Crab Dip, the Fish Tacos, the Mac and Cheese, and various salads, including the Greek, Caesar, and Green Goddess. We called ahead, and the food was waiting... More

Paid $22.00+ for some kind of steak and then they are going to refuse to serve you water in a glass. Then try to tell you they didn't have glass because they would break. The table across from me were friends drinking mixed drinks in GLASSES. But I had water in plastic and was lied to. Plus the food was... More

I love the early bird from 4 to 6. Great prices and delicious dinner! I particularly love the salmon and the house dressing is fabulous. She crab is awesome and sherry is served with it. Love the bread!

She had the cedar planked salmon which came out on the cedar plank...yumm. I had a mixed special with mussels, wahoo and I cant remember the third fish. The wahoo... More

The shrimp tacos were delicious. The crab dip was pretty good, but the pretzel that it is served with was a bit salty. Specialty drinks were only $3 from 4-6 and the ones I tried were great!

My husband and I and 2 other couples enjoyed a really great dinner here. We started with shared calamari, tuna bites and the crab dip served with soft pretzels. All 3 appetizers were simply delicious. The crab dip was a particular hit because of the big lumps of crab meat and the fun presentation. I think next time we'd get... More

Food was absolutely delicious. We sampled calamari, coconut shrimp, tuna and a burger. Our server Shannon was great. As we finished Laura the manager came to our table to make sure everything was ok. She was happy to hear how impressed we were and that we would be back.
