“Wonderful seafood in Virginia Beach”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

We are so glad to have followed Tripadvisor's ranking to eat at Blue Seafood & Spirits while vacationing in Virginia Beach. Every employee there was so welcoming and attentive, especially our server Tanya. She was always checking on us and we really had a lot of fun talking with her. The owner/chef was also very, very nice and stopped by to check in and visit. Now on to the outstanding food, starting with the very tasty complimentary crab claw salad bites, the fried asparagus appetizer and the delicious sweet potatoe rolls. The crab cake entree was excellent and so was the daily special of fried soft shell crab. Their creme brulee dessert melted in your mouth. One of the best dining experiences we have ever had!

“Wonderful seafood, lovely atmosphere, great service”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

We visited Blue Seafood and Spirits after reading the great reviews on Tripadvisor. It certainly lived up to all of our expectations. We were greeted at the door (during a heavy downpour) by the owner, who held the door for us and led us in. The restaurant is clean and modern and the decor reflects the name. Our waitress, Lexi, was friendly, outgoing and she was willing to give her own personal recommendations. The food was outstanding. From beginning to end we had a great dining experience, even with two small children. We highly recommend Blue to anyone interested in a quality seafood meal!

“Best Hidden Gem in Virginia Beach”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I dined at Blue Seafood and Spirits on July 8th. I was not expecting to be impressed because the restaurant is not by the beach and it's off the beaten path. Boy was I wrong(And I am glad I was wrong). From the moment we walked in the staff was. attentive. Our server Tanya attentive and checked on us frequently. Chef Charles even came out and spoke to us after we finished eating. Our meal was fabulous. I ordered the soft shell crab dinner and my wife ordered the lump crab dinner. It was the best crab dinner we had ever eaten. My wife ordered a desert chocolate bread pudding and that was great as well. Also we were given a trip w at prior to our dinner coming out (crab balls and sweet potato biscuits). We will definitely dine here again when we return to Virginia Beach. I highly recommend Blue Seafood and Spirits if you are in Virginia Beach!
