We were excited to go to this seafood restaurant. Service was awful and we were there early. The salad was good. The steaks wer tough. The battered fish was not the best at all. Everything was cold. We told our server it was all cold and there was no response. it was very disappointed.

We made a reservation thru Tripadvisor for 7:30 last Saturday. Upon arriving, we were told it would be about a 15 minute delay in seating. That was fine. It took almost 30 minutes to be seated. At that point, there was no waiting list. So I ask: If I was going to be put on the waiting list just like... More

Wonderful restaurant alongside Rudee's Inlet in Virginia Beach. Food was excellent and arrived quickly, considering they were full with a waiting list. Our server (Lauren) was extremely efficient and friendly. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Rock out at happy hour and feast on fine seafood either inside or outside on the deck! A great place to socialize and view the many boats on RUDEE INLET. I never order lobster but this venue must fly them in from Maine! Trendy drinks and special ales make it a hot spot! See you there!😀

There are many good restaurants in this area. This one is overpriced with inferior quality food. Given that other restaurants in the area had wait times running to two hours, we should have guessed.

Our retiree's group of 14 meet for a special meal at this special restaurant. Our table was ready ahead of time. My husband requires the use of a walker, which is very large. The staff not only made certain the walker was nearby, behind an empty table, but also placed the walker at my husband's side while the check was... More

Our server was Vanessa and she made our visit the best! Very professional and in control even though she had several large parties. Vanessa explained all the specials and everything that we had questions on. The Waterman's trio gave me a taste of everything and they were all great! We also had the seafood sampler for 2 and loved all... More
