Very nice service and food

Both sea food and service is very nice. Last time I lost my parking ticket after dinner, and the valet parking guy helped me get the car out to avoid fees... would definitely recommend to others.

What a great place to go and listen to music outdoors, bring out of town guests, etc. BUT don't plan on eating or drinking there!! As a local I can honestly say that it is one of the worst places for service and food! We have had issues since it first opened, have complained to management, and have been totally... More

This is the second year in a row that my boyfriend has taken me to Catch for Valentines Day. It was perfect!!!!!! We walked in and they had these canopy looking things over the booth areas. there were rose petals hanging from the ceiling. It looked like it was from a movie! We weren't able to sit in one of...

Our group of seven came to eat and we had a great experience! Anastasia was our waitress and was very attentive along with the managers on duty to ensure our dinner experience was good. Will be back again and we will look forward to it.

"I've been three times. Twice to restaurant and once for drinks outside. The location is right on the beach and is a nice place to relax and have a drink. That is if you can get someone to wait on you. Service all 3 times left a lot to be desired. Took forever to order get food and forget getting... More

Wonderful views, pretty place, but the food is so overpriced. We ordered bacon wrapped scallops. It was almost $20 FOR TWO scallops. 2! After that we just got salads and another appetizer. I am not cheap (just ask my husband!) but I like to get what I pay for! Drinks equally pricey. Go down the road to Mahi Mahs for... More

We always have a drink or light dinner at Catch31 when we visit Virginia Beach. The restaurant is located within the Hilton hotel - right along the boardwalk. Outside seating has stone fire pits which are a lot of fun is the weather is a bit cooler. The seafood entrees are always fresh. The overall atmosphere is just perfect and... More

We always go here on the weekend to sit outside on the terrace and listen to bands either on the 31st stage or those playing right outside the terrace. When it's cool outside the firepit a keep you warm and add a romantic feel to it. Te food is good and the staff is very attentive.

Catch 31 is directly on the boardwalk/beach. The food is excellent but the cost is $$$. That said, it is what I would expect to pay at a resort city, in a restaurant, on the boardwalk. Seafood is fresh and the portions are a good size. Wait staff is ok. They usually seem rushed.
