Quite the swanky joint! Hard to find so use GPS. The best calamari I have EVER eaten and I’ve been around 70 years. Rest of the food we enjoyed was equally as delightful. A bit pricey for VA Beach but don’t let that stop you...More

Tucked off the main beach road in an unassuming small center, it was a nice find. It was fried chicken night and it did not disappoint, my companion did the tasting menu with the sommelier wine tasting and was pleased. Our server Edouard was knowledgable...More

I’m not a local, but learned via Trip Advisor that Terrapin is a local favorite. And the locals are right. My husband and daughters all really loved this place. They have a tasting menu, small sized items you can do as appetizers or sides or...More

Terrapin is regarded as one of the best options in the restaurant-thin North End of Virginia Beach. The prices are high for food and drinks, but the consistency of what you get makes it mostly worth it. You are never taking a risk to pick...More

This restaurant has a nice contemporary feel to it. Fresh oysters, a rockfish catch of the day, these are the kinds of items you'll find here. You can eat a la carte, or do a prix fixe arrangement of four dishes. Interestingly, they do not...More

Yeah; I'd stick with that and nice shoes. You won't need a jacket-but, if you did have one you wouldn't feel overdressed if you decided to wear it. It's a first class place and yet not pretentious at all.
