The food was really good. Prices a little high. I think if they had more choices on the menu it would have given me more options.

My party was visiting from Williamsburg and Catch 31 was recommended to us. We just wanted a light bite and after being seated in a comfy booth near the bar, our server Robert gave us a couple of suggestions we tried the Seafood Flatbread appetizer...which was scrumptious and Seafood Sliders. We loved everything so much returned the next afternoon for another round of flatbread and added luscious crab cakes with small potatoes and grilled asparagus. Perfect in every way. Yes, the prices are higher but worth it! They had a holiday promotion on where a $50 gift card purchase earned $25 bonus. We used that on our return visit. If there before Thanksgiving see about this special!More

Fine dining with an ocean view. What could be better than this? Delicious seafood. Recommend the clam chowder and crab cakes. Service was impeccable. A lovely restaurant.

My dad and I are in town for my Dad’s tennis tournament, staying in the attached hotel. I have a gluten allergy and my dad is gluten free and vegetarian. Robert was amazing. He went the extra mile in helping us 2 nights in a...row, checking with the chefs as to how we could best modify items on the menu and have variety in our meals two nights in a row. The meals were delicious. Wonderful experience, thank you again, Robert!More

We ate both inside and outside. Very good meals, good menu selection, very good service. Prices a bit on the high side. Definitely worth sitting oceanside if the weather is good.

Had the most enjoyable dinner at Catch 31 in Virginia Beach tonight! Very conveniently located right on the boardwalk. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Clean fresh modern decor and excellent service! Our server, Donnette (Donnie) was so friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The menu offered a...very nice variety and the food was tasty and obviously fresh. We had the calamari appetizer which was large enough to share, the whole red snapper and the shrimp & scallops over cheesy grits for entrées (both delicious). We ended the meal with the chocolate lava cake (served warm with strawberries and vanilla ice cream...perfect!) We enjoyed it all!More

Went during vacation with my wife and just stopped in for light lunch and drinks. Had as an appetizer the seafood flat bread and it was delicious even the drinks were good…. But,,, when we went back for a second lunch we had the snow...crab legs and we’re disappointed… and the drinks were not as good??? I guess we may have caught a bad day as initially the food was good. Overall I would give them an average plus rating…didn’t think after everything it was as high end as we expectedMore

Stopped in shortly after our 5 hour drive into Town and got waited on and served lunch quickly. Ordered the fish tacos with a couple of cold beers and that set the mood perfect for the rest of the day exploring the boardwalk. Came by...at the end of the evening to find a 3 piece rock/pop band playing so sat on the wall by the patio fire pits and jumped in to get drinks every once in a while. Given the crowds there I imagined it would have been a tough spot for dinner unless you stayed inside.More

Catch 31 specializes in seafood. The fish is excellent. The other dishes are very good as well. The service here is great and the servers kind and knowledgeable. WE will eat here again.

My family and I waited about 15 minutes before we were seated. When we finally sat down, we were given the menu and the waitress never picked them up from the table. We ordered the clams on the half shell. I don't know why the...clams were filthy. They were full of sand. I couldn't eat them. We left that restaurant and went some where else.More

It’s been a long time since I ate at a place that is expensive and I can’t write a good review for. I ordered the margarita flat Bread it was burnt and cold. I asked for another one it was less burnt but still not...hot. The tomato cream soup was cold as well. We were told that our table will be ready in 2 hours but than they texted to come asap so we don’t loose the table that we couldn’t reserve anywaysMore

The service was very poor. Here is why. We had to ask the waitress for more water as the waitress didn't check up on us besides taking the order. Add to the fact that our appetizer dish was not taken away even when the main...dish arrived. Add to the fact that our menus were still on the table after we ordered the main dish. The waitress never stopped by our table asking us if we need any else. The appetizer dish wasn't taken away until we asked for the check. The food was nothing to write home about. The kids Mac & cheese was very plain. I could get a better Mac& cheese at Panera or Outback. Artichoke dip was not good and not fresh. Cheesecake factory has much better artichoke dip than here. Calamari was below average and very dried. The point I'm making here is that franchise restaurants can make better dish than Catch31. We had Crab cakes and Shrimp, scallop with grit. They put so much salt on these dishes and the dish was average at best The service sucked and the food wasn't very good .There are better restaurants with better food than Catch31. The only dish I did enjoy was the grilled octopus.More

VA Beach favorite! Always excellent service, food, and drinks. Tried the NY strip steak and it was great. Haven't had a steak here since Salacia closed, but it was just as good. Crab cakes, swordfish, and salmon were excellent dishes that the family tried.
