The decor is nice as are the staff. My wife and I were not at all impressed with the food. My burger was ok but the coleslaw they served me had a nasty spoiled taste. My wife ordered the Crabcake Sandwich. Aside from crumbling to pieces on the first bite, it appeared to be made from minced or shredded crab... More

We ate here while strolling the board walk for a stop on our way to williamsburgh VA. Loved it! First of all it has a ton of BEATLES and plays all the music of my favorite band ever! I had delicious fish tacos with coconut rice (delicious) and black beans. Very good lunch special for $7.99. My wife had the... More

Drinks are strong so I think you get your money's worth here and they have a large selection. I thought their nachos were good although I'd pass on the queso. I would stick to going here for lunch. Not really a nice dinner place. Average price

My boyfriend was absolutely obsessed with this place because he loved the seafood mac and cheese dish. I'm not a big seafood fan but I got the burger with some caramelized onions and bleu cheese with a side salad and it was very good. Our server was Dan and he was very attentive and extremely personable. The manager (Mike) also... More

We had the bacon cheese fries for an appetizer. They're delicious. I had the honey bbq chicken sandwich which was out of this world! They're a little pricey but make it worth your while. Will definitely dine here again.

We visited Rockfish in August, 2014 - one of many stops at this fine restaurant through the years. We try and make a point of eating here every visit to Virginia Beach, and have never been disappointed. We dined last July, 2013, and I'm happy to report the food and atmosphere were great as always! We had the crab cakes... More

Walked in from the boardwalk hotel where we were staying and hostess said we could seat ourselves in the bar area which was perfect because the dining room was crowded and were more bar people anyways. There were no unoccupied areas that were clean! I waited and waited and made contact with bartender and waited some more. Bartender made a... More

After reading some of the previous negative reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. We went for lunch around 2:30pm and we were quickly seated. We ordered the Spinach Artichoke and Crab Dip as an appetizer which came quickly to our table and tasted deliciously.

Trying a new place for me in VB. Had the crab dip, it wasn't memorable, but I had the grilled mahi which was very good. My friend had the salmon which was very good according to her. Service was a little slow but the waiter, William was personable . I would go again to try some other fish selections.
