Good food.

The food was very good. We had a chef salad and a crab/shrimp dish. The portions were very large! The room was a little warm.

The college kids serving need a refresher on service! Very slow to be greeted after being seated, then even slower with the drinks and food service. The seafood sampler was good, except for the crab cake which was overcooked and burnt!!

Sometimes the place you would walk by has the best food. Onion soup rivals mine and the blackened tuna was tops. would recommend for everyone. Family friendly or pub hangout

This place is a must for my family to eat at least once every time we come to Virginia Beach! Been coming here for 6 years usually twice a year and they have never failed me on my crab legs! Every time they are cooked to perfection! The whole family loves it and has a great meal together with great... More

This joint was fun and fast and perfectly priced for Virginia Beach. My friends and I sat at the bar and had a few drinks and appetizers. Everyone was really friendly and the food was delicious.

We had not dined at the Raven at the oceanfront since we lived in Virginia Beach many years ago but we decided to take our visiting grandson to see how he liked it. We were pleased to see it still has wonderful hamburgers at a reasonable price. It also has on site parking unlike many Atlantic Avenue restaurants. We will... More

I had a "Corbeau" steak. Very good! The restaurant is opened early for dinner (contrary to some beachfront that only open at 17:00) and is conveniently located on Pacific street, just across the street from the beach.

We eat here during every visit to Va. Beach, and we've been there nine times in the past fifteen years. This year, it was a nice day for late June so we sat in the front, open-air area at 5pm. We have been seated there in past years, but also inside during our hotter visits. This visit, as usual, the... More

Contrary to some of the other reviews, our mini-vacay to Virginia Beach included a GREAT dinner here our last night. My husband had the prime rib which was fanTAStic, and well worth the $22. All five in my party were very pleased with the food quality and portions. Crab cake sandwich and burgers were so big, we couldn't finish. As... More

ended up eating a late dinner here with our teen boys...had a great crabcake sandwich, a HUGE broccoli spear, salmon, ceasar salad, and a delicious club sandwich...the only downside was the cigarette odor even out on hte side porch.
