A perennial good choice is even better for this VBRW. The She-crab soup is always the best at the beach. The special Grilled Cod was cheffed to excellent. A note : the asparagus was pretty but not necessary. The Bananas Foster Ice Cream cake was tall and filling but order the Key Lime Pie instead. ( another best at the... More

My girlfriend had been here several times but this was the first time in more than 5 years and was my first time ever. I was impressed from the time we were greeted by the hostess and throughout our meal. Everything we tried was more delicious than the bite before. The she-crab soup was the best I've ever had and...

We went for dinner on Christmas Eve with another couple. We had reservations and did not have to wait at all when we arrived. Each for us had a different entree and we were all very pleased with our choice. Server was very attentive and friendly

The Lynnhaven Fishhouse is my favorite seafood place in Virginia Beach. I recently ate there again and as usual the food and service were great. Love the crab cakes. My wife loves the she crab soup. Don't miss this place!

Went to check out on a referral. This place is usually very busy so we might have visited on an off hour. However, if you say you are open, you should be open. Drinks were very good. Know for their she-crab soup- it was very good. A little thick but the sherry makes it just right. Key Lime pie is... More

This is our go to restaurant for seafood. this is where we go for quiet dinners together or to take friends and family. we even had our daughters rehearsal dinner here. Staff is outstanding not to mention the attention from Chris, the owner who always comes by every table to check on his guests.

My wife had visited the Fish House once before and raved about the crab soup. We returned to give it a try. We were seated quickly and efficiently, and our server, Devin, was prompt and efficient as well. The she crab soup was quite good, and was nicely complemented by the wonderful hush puppies. It was a quiet pleasant day... More

This seems to be a favorite with the tourists. As a local, my family and I have enjoyed this restaurant many times usually with visiting friends and family. The food is generally very good and prepared properly. The service we have found to be very attentive and never an issue. I think the real reason many folks go is the... More

If you are in the VA Beach area you must go here. I had the stuffed shrimp and oysters and my friend had crab legs. Everything was to perfection. Nice wine list. Very good service. Ambience is nice and you are on the water. You could dress for dinner or be casual. My kinda place.
