We read the reviews and they were all saying how good it was. Well we were so disappointed with the food. The crab and clams chowder lacked the seafood and flavour, it was all cream. The crab dip was ok. But better then the rest of the food. We shared the Neptune plate with broiled Flounder, stuffed shrimp, scallops and... More

Dining room has wonderful views of the bay and the attached fishing pier. Servers were knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. Meals were only so-so, which didn't match their prices. The drinks tasted well, but lacked proper alcohol content.

Everything we ate was wonderful! We both had the seafood sampler and it was so delicious and the food was so abundant including the desert which was delicious. The prices were high but again the food was wonderful.

We came for the oysters and stayed for the flounder! Everything was absolutely delicious. The view is amazing and tops off the whole experience of this restaurant. Will definitely dine here again next time we're in Va. Beach. Highly recommended.

Every year we come to VA Beach for the Shriners Convention. Most the time the food is standard Beach fare or Buffets, we were blown away by Lynnhaven. A professional wait staff, fantastic. Fresh seafood and a fair price. Is our new VA Beach tradition

Everybody loved the seafood, but I had the pork chop, which was tough. The view is incredible of bathers on the beach and a very long fishing pier, sand, sea and sky. It's a good place to take someone from out of town if you can afford it.
