Warm atmosphere, unique decoration, Friendly service, good variety on the menu. Low traffic area but not too far from the beaches.

nothing bad, but nothing outstanding at all. I was recommended by locals to come here for their seafood. Had some shucked oysters and crab cakes. Both mediocre. IMO overpriced. fun venue for kids though.

It had been a long while since my wife and I had dined here. We were impressed with the nautical décor, but maybe a little over the top. We had an appetizer and then shared fish tacos. Everything was served up and our impression was that it was a little bit better than our first visit here. I would give... More

The service last night was slower than usual as they appeared to be understaffed. The food was decent but nothing special, reasonable value for what you get. A good place for after the beach.

The Virginia Beach area is vast and the restaurant choices too numerous to count. and yet this one area just a bit South of the beach seems to have the most good places to eat. The Lucky Oyster has consistent food. I think their brunch is the best option. Lots of salads and variations on eggs Benedict. The service is... More

Lucky Oyster Seafood Grille was highly recommended by a friend, and my wife and I decided to give it a try, even though it is some distance from our home. The first impression is excellent - lots of ambiance (mariner setting) with friendly welcome. The sides that we tried (red beans and rice - spicy and flavorful, and mac &... More

I have been there three times now and every time I have been, the food, drinks, and service have been remarkable. I have eaten the steamed seafood platter which is remarkable, wings, oysters, she.crab soup, so far. Each item was delicious and cooked to perfection. The she crab soup gets my vote and I have eaten a ton of it.... More

Two years ago we got married at Sandbridge Beach and held our reception at the Lucky Oyster and the food was amazing. We came back for our anniversary and it's wonderful again. From the awesome crab dip appetizer, to the huge fried clam strips, to the tasty drinks, we will keep coming back again and again!!!

Thank NikkiBeth87
