My girlfriends and I stopped here for lunch on our last day in VA Beach before heading back to Chicago. We had walked by here several times over the weekend, so we decided to stop for lunch. Great location being right on the boardwalk and by the beach. But the rest, just average. Not a big menu. Typical bar and... More

The place is right on the beach. Great place for wings and drinks. Great happy hour prices Mostly bar food but quite good. Quite noisy during football season.

Went in for the oysters and were completely satisfied. The wife and I shared three dozen James River oysters, then moved on to sandwiches. I enjoyed a smoked turkey club that surprised with mozzarella and pesto sauce with the usual lettuce and tomato. It was perfect and our cocktails were better priced than most along the ocean front.

If you are in Virginia Beach Football season, they tailgate menu is awesome!!!! I order the ribs and wings. The ribs were sooooo TASTY, I didn't want the wings. The wings are good too. I didn't like the spicy slaw but that's my taste buds. The menu is priced prefect too.

Our second time. This time, it wasn't crowded at all, it was a week night. We found a comfy roomy booth. Started off with 12 Oysters Rock. They were expensive I thought, at $21,but they were really good with just the right amount of toppings. We both had steak, and it was awesome as were the sides. Our server was... More

A hotel employee recommended this restaurant to us (we stayed a few blocks from here and wanted a place we could walk to for dinner). Fresh food. Local food. Great service and decent prices. Awesome seafood! Even the kid's meal was good!

They do not know how to cook a good breakfast. Kept us from wanting to try anything else at this place. So we ate elsewhere.

This is a great place to relax and listen to a live band or watch NFL football. The mini crab cakes are terrific.

My wife and I stopped here to eat yesterday. We went inside and there were no signs telling you if you had to wait to be seated etc. So we waited a few minutes. A few servers looked over at us but nobody said a word. So, we went across the street to another establishment which I will also post... More

Visited numerous resort restaurants during our stay in VB and both the wife and I thought this place was the best. The service was a bit slow, but that seems to be the norm, but the food was worth the wait. Also, the bartenders here are actually bartenders! They aren't just some guy standing behind the bar waiting to refill... More
