Headed to Rockafeller's to see if it lived up to the advertised "no filler" crab cake and two pounds of fresh cooked lobster dinner. And it did. Naturally, the restaurant was bustling and a bit noisy, but at least it seemed full of satisfied customers. The service was efficient and friendly. We were seated immediately just before 6PM and the end of Happy Hour. My husband headed to the bar to partake of the special oysters, which he considered only average. However, he thoroughly enjoyed the Thursday night special lobster dinner, which came with two 1lb. lobsters, a basket of bread, and a medley of vegetables. While we were enjoying our meal, we also enjoyed watching the manager clear tables, greet customers, cajole with the staff, supervise seating, and simply run the joint like it should be done. Might have to try it for lunch before we head home to California.

I figured from reviews this place would be amazing. Not so It was just OK. My Hubby's steak was good, my fish was good nothing spectacular and the wait staff weren't even friendly or helpful.

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.

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...
