“Fresh Seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is a great find at Locklies Marina! The food was very fresh and delicious. Even better - eating that delicious food outside on the water with some craft beer!

“Great food on the water.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I go there all the time for lunch and dinner, a great spot to have drinks and take in the sun. The small plates are great, you can each order a few and try everything! Great people and great food.

“Great Ambiance and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

This restaurant is mostly on a porch or outside picnic tables. The view of the creek however is breathtaking especially at sunset.

The food is even better; the feature in most items is the local oysters. We had raw Rappenhannack oysters, some cooked oysters, and the highlight was the lamb and oyster stew. It is more of a small bits menu and very well priced.

There is a very good wine selection as well as beer including local brewerys.

Hightly recomment this spot, but if cool weather bring a jacket.

“Incredible food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Best crabcake my wife and I have ever had, and we've had thousands. Great view, great wines, great beer selection. Try the oyster sampler along with the Oyster Stout beer. This is a mandatory stop for any Urbanna/Irvington vacation.
