“Sirfrider - Great Small Chain for quality Seafood”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

I have eaten at several locations of Surfrider. Most recently I had lunch in the one in Poquoson VA. Their menu always has a mix of fresh and popular seafood. I particularly like their reasonably priced sandwiches and, of course, their huge head of broccoli side. This time I got the soft shell crab special. The crabs were large, breaded a bit heavier than I prefer, but very tasty. The dinner entree part of the menu is a bit pricey - but worth it for quality seafood.

The restaurant is bright and large windows give a great view of the River.

“Good seafood”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

My kids love going here and their favorite thing to order are the crabcakes, which i also like. They also serve a huge broccoli floret with hollandaise which is yummy. The restaurant is on the water and has a nice view.

“Good food”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Staff is very friendly, food is good. Its a little over priced, and the restaurant is VERY noisy. Its a nice scenic view, but there are not views from every table. From where we were sitting, we could have been in Iowa.

“Management exceeded expectations”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

We recently visited this restaurant based on other Trip Advisor comments. Two individuals in our party of four had shellfish allergies. The manager (Brandi) was extremely helpful as we made our dinner selections and advised us on cooking options to make sure our meals were safe. Enjoyed both the view and our meals. We are very thankful for Brandi's help and felt she exceeded our expectations

“Excellent Seafood Restaurant with Beautiful Scenic View”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

If you want a really nice scenic view and an overall good seafood dinner - this restaurant is worth the stop. Very popular among locals. Staff is super friendly and eager to get answers to questions if they don't know them when taking your order. Their fried shrimp is lightly breaded, hush puppies are tasty, and when they have it, my favorite is their fried potato cakes. Very family friendly, they have a bar but it is out of the way to one side of the restaurant. Nice ample room between tables and booths.
