Description: Norfolk Seafood Company, located on Tazewell Street, is a place where seafood lovers can find a traditional plate of flounder, scallops or crab but without the fancy ingredients and inflated prices. The restaurant is centrally located in downtown Norfolk above the Big Easy Oyster Bar. The mission of the Norfolk Seafood Company is to bring tasty seafood to locals and tourists, minus the trip to the Oceanfront. Norfolk Seafood Company The menu features everything a good seafood restaurant should offer, plus all the sides. Expect to find coleslaw, fries, green beans, and other traditional side items, all of them ideal accompaniments to crab cakes, shrimp, scallops, and other seafood favorites. Appetizers include the same gumbo featured at the oyster bar downstairs, as well as shrimp cocktail, crab dip, oysters, she-crab soup and other tasty options. A cold beer, wine or a specialty drink from the bar rounds off any meal. The menu is kid friendly, but a child's menu is also available for parents looking for smaller portions for their children. In addition, the decor and atmosphere make it clear that the establishment is a family friendly locale, ideal for celebrating any family occasion be it a birthday, anniversary, or just a Saturday night on the town.

“WEDNESDAY NIGHT SPECIAL”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

A friend and I took advantage of the Wednesday Night Hamburger Special. She had heard about it, so we gave it a try. The upstairs dining; extensive bar with a lit glass floor; fireplace and upscale atmosphere was a pleasant surprise. I had been to New Orleans and most of the restaurants are more casual, and some downtown damage from the flooding.

The server was excellent. Our hamburgers were plated on a butcher block with our side. Mine was cooked to perfection and completely filled me where I didn't need a desert. Half=priced hamburgers, we will definitely come back.

“Great Service and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is a great little oyster bar. We had a large group and the bartenders worked together to provide quick service while still being friendly. They gave good recommendations as well. The food was all fantastic. You have to get some oysters here and they don't disappoint. I highly recommend.
