Old favorite

Liked: it was still there. Last time I was there was sometime in the 70's. Disliked: bar area was smoking-allowed. But sat at bar anyhow. Lunchtime and not may people there. Had clam chowder which was good; husband had burger which he said was delicious.

I have been coming to The Raven for a number of years now. The food is always excellent. Sometimes the service isn't great, but that has only happened when I've been with large numbers of people. I was there last week, and out server was exceptional. I have had many things on their menu, and they have all been wonderful.... More

We tried The Raven for the first time during one of our weekend excursions to the beach - and the range was very good to mediocre - but overpriced for the quality. My wife ordered the grilled salmon with a half dozen clams on the half shell which she enjoyed. I ordered the New York Strip with a side salad... More

One waitress for the whole place, dated interior, my chicken was not fully cooked and waitress never acknowledged that fact. Do not plan on returning to the Raven.

My friend and I enjoyed the food, whether it is a pasta dish or a juicy hamburger or steak, or salmon dish...the food has always been delicious at the Raven. The server was an accommodating and friendly and efficient young woman.

The wife and I spent this past Saturday staying at Carlson Comfort Inn and suites at 18th and Atlantic. We yelped restaurants and found something that looked decent and close so off we went walking south on Atlantic. The restaurant was supposed to be in the 16th but the whole block had been bulldozed so we kept walking and found... More

Decided to give the place a try & were happy we did. The prices were very reasonable, the portions were huge & the staff were all great. We will definitely be coming back.

We were ready for dinner, and didn't want to go far, and the Raven was located within walking distance of our hotel. We walked over, and were quickly greeted and seated. My husband ordered the scallops, which he said were very good. I ordered the burger, which, while large, was not cooked medium, but was quite rare, and not even... More

Not many decent places open to grab lunch in VA Beach during the winter so we stopped at the Raven. Good call on our part, lunch was very good and the portions were big for what I thought were very reasonable prices. I had a monstrous chef salad, kids had big juicy burgers and the wife had their soup of... More

I really like this restaurant/bar, because of its location and menu. We always share the Captain's Platter or whatever it's called. More than enough seafood for two for under thirty dollars. And on this occasion we had a few "extra" glasses of wine and a great caramel apple pie dessert. This place has been at the Beach for almost fifty... More
