“Excellent as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We visited Virginia Beach for a week in July, 2013. Trip Advisor lists 1,064 restaurants in Virginia Beach! We were looking for those restaurants which are located right off the beach that don’t require driving.

As of this review, Rockfish is #55, and has become a “must stop” while visiting. Despite numerous other negative reviews on Trip Advisor, we have never had a bad experience there and would recommend it. Maybe we have just been lucky, but truthfully, we’ve never witnessed any unhappy diners.

The restaurant is loaded with Beatles memorabilia, which is a nice bonus, but the real draw is the excellent food, and usually you can find a coupon in the local coupon books that will save you some money. We had the Crab cakes and the shrimp and scallop dinner – both were delicious. Our server was top notch, and even though a large party came in right after us, she made sure we were well taken care of. They also have a nice selection of local beers and wine.

We highly recommend Rockfish and hope your experience will be as pleasant as ours.

“Good for the family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

we arrived after making a reservation, and were seated at a great indoor table with views of the boardwalk. seafood was fresh (all fish was served beautifully). I like the fact that they offer a starch and vegetables, which is a nice change from most places. The wine special was 1/2 price, a true bargain! ( It would have been good if the waiter mentioned it, instead of us pointing it out to him after seeing it at the front desk). service was excellent, as was the food. Our 4 year old had a fun time with crayons that were provided. worth a return visit! thanks.
