I have wanted to eat here for years but for one reason or another had never been. I am sad I waited so long. Everything was outstanding. From the view looking out at the beach, to the she crab soup, to the incredible scallops and the wonderful waitstaff Lynnhaven was excellent. This is the best food I've had in Virginia... More

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.

The wife had crab meat broiled just right and to perfection and I had the fried shrimp. The sides were succulent and set off the entrees just right. The atmosphere and views were great too. The prices were just a little steep but this is a place where you get what you pay for.

Love the quality of service at this restaurant and their food is amazing every time. They usually have a wide variety of sea food and fresh catches of the day, but I regularly order their lynnhaven scallops and they are always perfectly cooked. I love coming here.

We chose Lynnhaven Fish House because it was walking distance from where we were staying in Virginia Beach. The fish selections are fresh, varied and delicious. Everything we ordered, from ahi tuna to soft-shell crabs came to the table cooked to perfection. The restaurant is on the beach so you can enjoy water views. It is adjacent to a fishing... More

We had a large family group and this was a comfortable place to go. The food was somewhat overpriced for standard fish house fare.

For the price of the food, even at a great location, you expect better. They serve hush puppies instead of rolls, but honestly they shouldn't bother. The hush puppies were dry and flavorless and set a bad tone for the meal. All the food was rich to the point of excess, as if cream and butter were fighting to be... More
