“Groovy Grub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

I met a friend here for a late lunch and will definitely go back!

The service was excellent from the greeting through payment if the check. Our server was happy to answer questions and make a recommendation and bragged on the kitchen staff...a good thing.

I ordered the She Crab Soup, a salad and the Crabbie Mac...all were delicious and generous portions...is it bad that I kept wanting to eat the Crabbie Mac although I was full? Well, eat it I did...it was awesome and you have to get it when you go...and you must go...you will be pleased. My friend had the Bali Chicken and raved about it and said he would get it again when he comes back.

The parking is a bit tight, but there is some also along a side street and also across Shore Drive in a small church parking lot (after 1 PM). Don't let the parking lot dissuade you...or you'll miss out on the groovy grub!

“good food, good waitstaff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Split a dinner with my mom as portions are very generous. Other entrees selected were fried oysters and Catch of the Day fish. All portions were generous and tasty. The outdoor patio was very pleasant, AD we got extra hushpuppies when one of the meals was slightly delayed. Extra tasty morsels are always welcome!

“Best lunch in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

This place is great! The 6.50 lunch specials can't be beat!! The lunch special is offered 11 - 3. They are different daily and include a soft drink. Today was fish tacos with beans and rice. It was delicious. The regular menu and bar offer lots of choices.

“best she crab soup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We plan a stop at Capt. Groovy's whenever we are passing through Norfolk. So far it's always been lunch time or mid afternoon. The best she crab soup and onion rings anywhere. Split one of the delicious and generous sandwiches. Add a cold beer and enjoy a most satisfying meal. There is a great menu board with daily dinner specials. We'll go for dinner another time.
