Description: Located minutes from Chesapeake Bay on the water is One Fish-Two Fish. We offer an alternative to formal dining, it's what we call "fun dining." The atmosphere is "upscale without the uppity." This unique feeling is created by a casual waterfront environment with boat access. The restaurant is centered around the Exhibition Kitchen with panoramic views of the Bay. The menu incorporates a blend of California style with fresh, local seafood. The wine list focuses on "boutique style" wines and is consistently recognized with the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence." Stephen Michaels, owner, and his staff strive to make this venue high energy but still elegant. The only thing we overlook is the water. See you there.

“Simply the best in Hampton Roads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

We are living in the Hampton Roads area for already some years and had a couple of experiences with sea-food restaurants. This is by far the best. Fresh made salad, outstanding sea - food and a great selection of beer and tasteful wine. Outside seating is available next to the water. This restaurant is a must!

“Great food and service with a wonderful sunset view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We tried 4 different appetizers and loved them all. We had great entrees as well and the view of the sunset was incredible. Highly recommended by the owner of the B&B where we stayed and we were very glad we went. Wonderful!

“Just a Cat Fish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

I thought the location was awesome when we first pulled in. We walked into the restaurant and it was VERY fancy. I felt awkward because I was casually dressed. We sat outside where the view was nice, it was fun to see boats drive by. They brought out bread which was possibly the best bread I have ever had. Then I ordered a crab crake. (I'm use to MD crab cakes) It was horrible. There was mostly filling and not really any crab there. And for $30 dollars I thought that was ridiculous. My boyfriend got something off the specials that really wasn't that great either.
With the prices being so high you expect something good, my expectations were not meant.
