“Newtown Road Surfrider”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Honestly if there is a better lunch place in Va Beach/Norfolk please reply to this comment! Surfrider keeps the board fresh with new specials every day and for the non-seafood lover like me I can't get enough of the POT ROAST or BBQ. The vegetables are always fresh tasting and the service is incredible. My friends visit here weekly and when I visit from Texas we always run into old friends here. There is a great business crowd because they know a great value. Known for their crabcakes the other entress are very popular. Thanks!

“Yummo!”

We loved this restaurant! Awesome food (crab cake on ceasar salad, hamburger/fries, crab cake/filet). Had previously eaten at the Hampton location. Same great relaxed atmosphere with great food and service.

“Excellent food and service. Very popular restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

While the Surf Rider specializes in seafood, they have other well prepared dishes. Since I am not a seafood eater, that is important to me when I go with seafood loving friends. They have steaks, sandwiches, salads and pasta, that are all very tasty. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. I hear their crab cakes are the best.

“Great crab cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Their crab cakes are great! We have been here several times. If your are going with friends share a meal. Order 2 sides with one meal and broccoli with the other. The broccoli is fresh and plenty to share; it counts as 2 sides.
