“My restaurant Owner husband would come back here again!!!!! Which almost never happens.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were in Virginia for a week and after searching for a decent restaurant. we almost gave up, until we found Rockafellas. ( Thanks to Tripadvisor).

We were seated promptly and even had a great View of the Dock.
The Food was excellent!!! The homemade ice tea was delishhhh. Everything was tasty, my Daughters who are picky eaters like their Dad, ate every single thing on their Plate!!!!! Which shocked me, honestly.

My husband didn't even have one bad thing to say about the food, cleanliness or Staff. Him being a Restaurant Owner in CT makes is though to make him eat anywhere else without him compareing it to his beloved place.

I would definitely have Dinner there again with my picky Husband and Daughters.

“Great food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Rockafeller's was the best place we ate at while in Virginia Beach. The food was excellent and so was the service. The prices were very reasonable. We ate at several restaurants that charged a lot more and had mediocre food. We were so happy when we finally found really good food. We could not have asked for anything more!

“Best part of my eating experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Rockafeller's was absolutely amazing. My family of four was seated after a bit of a wait but the wait was well worth it. Our waiter was fun and outgoing. The restaurant overlooked the harbor and was spectacular. The food and drinks were delicious, although pricey; it was well worth it.

“An excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This was my first time at the Rockafeller's but it will not be my last. The service was exemplary, the food was excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. This restaurant has something for every taste, whether its fresh seafood, steak or chicken. I have special dietary restrictions and the server was very good at helping me negotiate the menu and making sure what I ordered was appropriate. Great all around experience.

“Nice Restaurant on one of the Bay areas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Great restaurant with a huge menu. Obviously seafood is the main focus of it and it truly does not disappoint..From clam bake like pots with a variety of seafood, corn and potatoes to great fish dishes. Very busy place but with ample seating. Great service too. Moderately priced with good portions. A definite stop the next time we return.
