This restaurant is off the beaten path in Pungo and has a great history. The brothers who now run it have done an excellent job in creating a fantastic atmosphere and a great menu and making sure it continues to be one of Virginia Beach's great restaurants!

The food was delicious, especially the Crab Soup, the better we have ever eaten. However, I want to precise for potential customers that Blue Pete's food is really spicy. We personally enjoy spicy food so no problem to us. Great localization, next to a pend, original and pleasant, nice atmosphere. The waiter was very friendly. Thank you for welcoming us... More

Excellent fried shrimp, cold beer, good service. The seafood gumbo tasted like it came out of a can.. I am kind of a gumbo snob.

I'm from Oregon and I'm picky about salmon. The chef prepared this perfectly. Not dry. Sweet fish. I loved the feel of this local eatery. Would go back often!

Wonderful service and very friendly staff. The food is delicious, and the setting is beautiful. The owner walks around and greets everyone, and is genuinely happy to see everyone. The shrimp po'boy is yummy!

Nice place on the water. Went with friends on Saturday to do Auce oysters. They were really clean oysters. Sat outside. Overall a good time and good oyster deal.

A friend and I had dinner at Blue Pete's last night and it was perfect in every way. We both began with a large Pungo Punch, aptly named - - it was very large and packed a delightful, sweet fruity punch. Our entrees were the Crab Cakes and the Crab Encrusted Salmon. They and the sides - - broccoli, squash,... More

We were surprised to find Blue Pete open! We both had the chicken parmigiano and it did not dissapoint. The ambiance is the best in Va Beach on the water in an amazing cypress swamp. A perfect New Years day experience!

We were at Blue Pete's this past weekend for a gorgeous wedding. The venue is too cute and cozy. We absolutely LOVED the drinks and really enjoyed the food. The sweet potato biscuits are worth coming here alone. I am hopeful we can make it back here on our next VA beach adventure!

Thank Kala D

BLUE PETE'S Restaurant is a local's landmark for casual dining on the edge of beautiful Back Bay in Virginia Beach. Visit once, and you're a friend. Visit twice, and you're family... And believe me, you'll be back once you taste the Sweet Potato Biscuits! BLUE PETE'S is locally owned and operated by twin brothers Nick and Aristotle, and is an ideal site for business meetings by day, family dinner by night, and kicking back to live music once the sun goes down. We look forward to serving you!
