Seafood - Where do you locals go?

Okay, I'd like to get some of you locals' opinions of the best seafood restaurant(s) in town. I'll be coming at the end of June and already know about Captain George's, but I wanted to see if you all know and love any lesser known but equally good (or better) seafood in the Virginia Beach area.

It doesn't have to be buffet, and am somewhat interested in an outdoor dining experience somewhere.

Any ideas?

Thanks so much!

If you want REAL local seafood go to Mediterranean Ave about 19th street, you will find a local fresh raw bar on the NW side. Go in and order whatever you want fresh, they will steam it for you. you can even eat in, a waitress will bring you cold drinks. it's the best in town and I've been going there since '77 and love Rudees and the Lighthouse (torn down sadly) but this is the best I've found. not much atmosphere, but who cares if you are a died in the wool seafood lover.

Baybay: The Duck Inn is gone.

Thank goodness and good riddance. Their gazebo was very pretty but their food was very greasy, the place smelled bad, and the service was terrible..

I would say that Lynnhaven Fish House, Harpoon Larry's and Hot Tuna are all my favorites. Although I haven't lived there in a few years, I still visit quite frequently.
