This restaurant is always packed, so be prepared to wait on the porch for a bit. No worries though, you can get a drink at the bar to sip outside. It will be worth the wait. My family & I always split two Neptune Platters. These are made for two. We even have enough to take home to reheat for... More

We saw many reviews toting this as "the best she-crab soup in Virginia Beach" so we figured we needed to try it during our weekend jaunt to Sandbridge. All six of us ordered it, none of us liked it. Bland, pasty, lukewarm... first bite, all I tasted was potato... there were some pieces of crab in the suop, but it... More

We came across Margie and Ray's while we were driving towards Sandbridge beach. We decided to stop and it was a great idea. The food was delicious. We had the steamed platter of seafood that fed two people. It contained mussels, shrimp, oysters, clams, crab legs and a vegetable. It was plenty of food for two people and the cost... More

We have been going to Sandbridge for 20 years, but had never stopped at this place until this year. We had a variety of local seafood and it was all very good. Nothing fancy about this place, but the wait staff was friendly and the prices were good

Having just arrived in the Virginia Beach area for a short visit, we took the recommendation of our B&B hostess to visit Margie & Ray's for some good seafood. We were not disappointed. The ambiance is very low key suburban, with many locals in attendance, always a good sign. The restaurant has been around for many years and clearly has... More

This place may not look fancy, but don't let the looks fool you. Amazing service and even better food. If your looking for good fresh sea food this is a great place to go.

My boyfriend and I were up from Blacksburg and wanted a good seafood dinner-we both love a good authentic meal and got just that! Decor and food isn't fancy, but the quality and portions were great, very nice waitress! We split the Hurricane and had some left over! So much better than any chain restaurant! Ps, we moved to VA...
