We vacationed in Virginia Beach for the first time August 22/23. The Wyndham Concierge recommended Rockafeller's. We arrived between 6:30pm and 7:00pm. Greeted and seated immediately, our waitress was Yoko. She was wonderful, accurate, friendly, she even laughed at my terrible Beatles Joke (which she says she hears all the time). Everything was amazing. The Cornbread was delicate, and not... More

Went Thursday for the Lobster special. All four of us had the special and there were no complaints from any of the four of us. The lobsters were small tender and sweet.

Fresh catch of the day for my lunch was the flounder - ordered it fried. Dave, out outstanding and so attentive waiter brought it out on a timely basis. It was light, crisp and tasted like it was just minutes before cleaned on the fishing boat and tossed into the kitchen. Pricing was commensurate with the quality - a good... More

We always make it a point to visit Rockafeller's at least once if not twice during our stay. The quality of the meals, especially the seafood, never disappoints. The service is always friendly and efficient. When its not too... More

It's a shame that the quality of the food does not match the ambience of the interior and exterior of this establishment.My wife's shrimp was overcooked and rubbery. The replacement serving that was presented to her was marginally better. My fish was uneevenly cooked. The vegetables of the day were also way overcooked, limp and virtually tasteless. Our mashed potatoes... More

Ten of us had dinner at Rockafeller's and everyone agreed the food was delicious, the portions substantial but not overwhelming, and fresh and enjoyable. Nice selection of wines, although the pronunciation guide was a little off putting.
