“Double Lobster Special on Thursday Nights!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Yes, that pretty much says what I needed to know. While shrimp, scallops and crab are ubiquitous in Virginia Beach, lobsters are pretty rare. Not at Rockafeller's, though! Every Thursday night the hungry lobster lovers arrive for the Double Lobster dinner special. For $25, you are treated to 2 one pound lobsters, perfectly prepared, with side dishes and plenty of lemon or drawn butter. The place is hopping, so you may need to wait. Rest assured that it's worth the wait.

“Great Seafood Meal”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Couldn't decide where to eat on a Saturday night so we decided to try Rockafeller's since it had been quite some time since we had dined there. The setting is always a plus! Our meals were so delicious and the service was great! Will definitely return again very soon...

“Reunion Dinner”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

All the seafood was excellent. The prime rib was done as ordered, but lacked the taste of a good mid-western prime-rib. Service was very good and the atmosphere good.
