Very nice staff as we sat in the bar area. Good selection of cocktails including the VB signature "Orange Crush." Good variety of fresh seafood that tasted excellent and did not cost "an arm and a leg."

Be sure to put Rockafeller's on your list of places to eat in Va Beach. It has been a staple for our family for many years. The freshest seafood and other selections make this a good spot to go- especially on lobster night. Be sure to take a walk around the marina. Beautiful boats abound.

We make a point of dining here each time in Virginia Beach. We are never disappointed. It is casual yet somewhat upscale. On our last visit I enjoyed the crabcake combo with scallops and my husband had a seafood sampler. Both were delicious choices. The service is spot on every time.. friendly yet professional. The view of the bay is... More

Flies everywhere. Annoying while trying to eat the sub-par food. The "no-filler crab cakes"? Full of filler. Don't waste your money or time.

Rockafellars Is A Gem Of A Restaurant Located Next To The Lynnhaven Inlet. You Can Watch The Charter Boats Return And Witness A Beautiful Sunset Over The Inlet!! Wether You Are Having Dinner Or Cocktails You Can't Go Wrong With Rockafellar's.

We enjoyed our visit to Rockafeller's on Monday/Prime Rib special night. While the food was very tasty I was not thrilled that almost a third of the piece of meat was fat. When discussed with the server I was offered a free dessert - but I was too full and declined. Otherwise, the food was very good, quick service, clean... More

Always had friends brag about Rockafellers. Had she crab soup which was good & a Caesars salad. Entree we ordered was tidewater sampler. It arrived cold. Shrimp was rubbery, oysters,mussels clams were small overcooked & not worth eating. Very disappointed. They didn't charge us & brought us a crab cake plate to share. It was ok but I've had better

My companions and I tried some of the dinner specials and found them to be surprisingly creative. Overall the food was the highlight here. To be honest, I was expecting a little more upscale atmosphere (bad assumption) and the service was average but not great. The location is good though, a little off the beaten track and nice view of... More
