If you love broccoli, this is the place to get it.

Clean restaurant on Atlantic off beach had good service and good food. It is known for its outstanding broccoli and my husband was not disappointed. His steak was cooked exactly the way he likes it. My meal of shrimp and a chef salad was also good.

We were a party of four that was promptly seated on a Friday. I ordered the scallops which were nicely cooked, but almost unseasoned and flavorless. My one son ordered the steamed shrimp, I was helping him peel them because they were extremely difficult to peel (I'm thinking overcooked), and my son bites into it, and said it's rubbery. This...

Party of 12 from young to old and we could not have been treated better. Great menu with large range of dinners and miscellaneous foods. Prices are in line with beach restaurants but portions are large and selections are well presented. Margarita was super!

While visiting Virginia Beach, VA treat yourself to the best casual dining in the city. Raven Restaurant has excellent food, great atmosphere with indoor and outdoor dining areas. Seafood, burgers, salads all made to order. My favorite side dish is steamed broccoli with hollandaise sauce instead of fries. Friendly staff. Clean family friendly restaurant.

Just went there last night. I went there based on other reviews on here and it's true really good food, proportions, prices aren't too bad. A woman at a neighboring table said she had been coming there since the 60's, I can see why! Oh and service was great! Not a bad place to go with the family but maybe... More

The food at this restraint was good. The tuna sandwich was absolutely amazing. The service however was very poor. The server continually forgot what we had asked for.

To start, I have a theory about French onion soup. If this is good, the rest of the food will probably be good too. If they pay attention to the details, it shows in the lesser dishes. That said, The Raven got this really right. They also got my burger, my son's Mahi, & my wife's dinner too. For drinks,... More
