Nice Happy Hour

Nice oceanfront outdoor patio with round fire pit tables Happy hour had great prices and several decent $5 appetizer choices. Service was slow, but there was only one waitress working the entire patio. She did the best she could. Great atmosphere!

We spent four nights in the Hilton hotel and got breakfast included in our deal. Two adults and two kids (4 & 2) one of whom has severe allergies. We had breakfast 4 mornings in the restaurant, each time taking the buffet. We had 4 different servers, each of whom was prompt, extremely helpful and friendly. Every request was met... More

Came for a beachview birthday lunch (not our first time here so we knew we wanted to sit on the terrace and not the much less desirable patio). When we checked in with the hostess and told her our seating preference for outside on the terrace, her first words were: "We aren't seating anyone there, you need to sit on... More

Nice location, looks out over the boardwalk and ocean. They have $5 happy hour food if you get there before 6pm. We had breakfast coupons for continental breakfast and you can upgrade for $5 more and have the full buffet. Sitting outside there are rocking chairs in front of the restaurant. Most of the palm trees look like they are... More

This was our splurge meal on our weekend getaway to Va beach. It is right on the boardwalk next to Neptune himself. The restaurant interior is gorgeous (women's restaurant is beautiful too). The offerings of fresh local catch were abundant as you woudl expect. We sat outside since it was such a lovely day. There are tables that have fire... More

Service was very good and fast for us. We noticed that a nearby table was not as lucky. The highlight of the meal was my soft shell crab sandwich. What a delight. As good as I have ever had. If it were not for this meal, I would have given a 4. It put the meal over the top.

The restaurant is very high style for the beach which coincides with the upscale Hilton that it resides in. The food, the wait staff were all top notch and offer sit down seating, bar seating, beachfront seating and another area with a number fire pits, which is where I spent most of my time. Each time that I have eaten... More

Stopped here for afternoon cocktails. They have outdoor fireplaces where you can sit and enjoy when chilly. Ashtrays available if desired. I had oysters on the half shell, my wife had steamed clams. Both were fresh and tasty. Service was friendly, attentive, and professional. Will be back.

We had a celebration lunch at Catch31 and had reserved a table for 12. Evan, our server, was excellent! He took great care of us. The food was delicious. Highly recommend the clam chowder! You pay for quality, not for quantity, which is what we prefer. The restaurant was lovely, both inside and out the beach patio.
