I made a 11:30am reservation for Thanksgiving Buffet on 17 NOV 2022 for today, "Turkey Day" at 11:30am. I went to the restaurant and was turned away for NOT having a reservation. Perhaps this restaurant should utilize dining reservation apps to set these scheduled festive,...bountiful encounters since the ROTTEN MANAGEMENT cannot even purchase a spiral notebook to keep a centralized reservation listing for a notorious busy day. I will never dine here ever again!More

I should have stuck with my first thought, which was go into Chesapeake to Wickers. Telling that the great reviews are from people who don't regularly get seafood; and when I say seafood, I'm not talking about river trout and a lot of flash frozen,...supermarket grade ocean fare. The place is for tourists. From the mid-west? Probably the best seafood meal you've ever had. Eastern Shore of Maryland...um...not so much!More

My husband and I ate her October 23, 2022 while at the beach for a weekend getaway! It was our last night and we wanted a good seafood meal. Boy were we disappointed. I order crab legs and they were old and dry. My husband...ordered steak (Delmonico)and it was a processed, chewy piece of meat. The sides were a joke. The grilled vegetables were just hunks of zucchini and red and green peppers, The service was not great as well. We spent $82.00 and it was such a let down. I will not be going back.More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. Every year we vacation in VB and we ate here last year, and since it was so good that time, my son wanted to return. Our server Ethan did a great job, very polite and friendly. I...ordered a Sex on the Beach drink, and it was very, very good. My son got the steak and shrimp again, since he liked it so much last year. This year he said it was still good, but last years better. I got the crab cake sandwich, I ended up taking it off the bun. There was so much bread, I couldn't taste the crab cake with it. The crab cake itself was delicious. I would order the crab cake meal and not the sandwich if we go back. My husband had the fried shrimp basket, and there was a lot of shrimp and he said it was good. We also shared their crab dip again,, and it was as good as before.. My son likes to get restaurant shirts, if they're cool looking and their's is, so he got another one in a different color. When we return next year, we would probably return.More

The food had no reason being so expensive. I will say save your money and find somewhere else to go if you’re on a budget. They serve some of the food in styrofoam containers! The taste was ok, but not like I’ll go back when...we go back next time.More

If you want quality food in a clean astmosphere you may want to go somewhere else. The she crab soup was watery and served in a styrofoam take out cup as was most everything. If your looking for fast food nearby and not concerned with...it being that great you could go here.More

$32 for a $12 steak. Ordered fish tacos. The menu said it came with black bean, corn and lime salsa, but came with pico de gallo. Took back and brought with lettuce and some kind of tartar sauce. Waitress apologized but was more concerned with...asking if I wanted another beer. Made 0 effort to make meal right or at least reduce price. Don't waste your $. High priced, less than mediocre restaurant.More

The Nautilus Restaurant was across from our hotel. We had a nice table outside. The service was quick and the food was great. I had the shrimp basket and hush puppies. My sister had the crab cake.

My buddy and I were in Virginia Beach for the weekend. On Friday night, we decided to eat here. Outdoor dining is available, however, we chose to eat inside because the wind was cold, and my buddy was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. We ate...fish and shrimp tacos, which were delicious. This restaurant is on Atlantic Avenue, which is convenient to the boardwalk. Nearby, there was a band performing near the boardwalk at an outdoor venue.More

This restaurant has a great steamed platter. WE had crab legs, shrimp, red potatoes, corn on the cob. & hush puppies. Was absolutely delicious. The orange crush drink is authentic also. The restaurant is right across the street from the hotel. When I looked at...it I figured that it would be just so, so. Boy was I wrong. I can't speak for the other food, but what I had was excellent. Wait staff was polite & attentive. Try it! It's worth eating there.More

It's a bar/restaurant so the food was pretty good for a bar. Grilled chicken sandwich and a crab cake sandwich.

For two people it came out to 84.00. A bit pricey but the food was great.
