My husband was advised by a coworker to dine at the Raven while visiting VB. Tonight was the night and we were extremely pleased! You can tell the restaurant has been here for several years and frequented by the locals. The menu was varied for all appetites and prices very reasonable. This might be VB's local gem!

We had dinner at the Raven during our stay in Virginia Beach. We sat on the enclosed patio because we had our son with us and apparently Virginia still allows smoking in restaurants, which is crazy to me. Ii can't say anything about the interior or cleanliness ot decor, becuse we didn't go inside, but the food was amazing and... More

Good food with friendly service. Had the tuna Caesar salad with the tuna rare. What a deal. A nice size piece of fish and a large bowl of salad.

You can't miss their distinctive bright neon sign with the black raven image, but you might walk past this little quaint cottage-like restaurant. Our first time dining at the Raven was when we lived here in VB years ago. The special occasion was a final romantic dinner before my then boyfriend (now husband) went off on a long deployment with... More

Very good food. Kids meals are served on a Frisbee. We walked past this place for years. Last year we ate there and realized we have missed out. Reasonable prices and good environment.

Popped in for dinner with out of town guests, plenty of available seating, wait staff was super friendly and very attentive even with a full patio. The food left a lot to be desired when it came to the fish and chips.....not fresh fish by any means, it was frozen fish pieces like fish sticks. The grilled tuna was okay,... More
