Description: Local favorite that is great for visitors as well. Great breakfast right on the water at the Rudee Inlet. Was recommended to us by some locals and overheard at least 2 other people telling other visitors to go there during our 5 day stay. Great lunch and dinners also that feature daily blackboard specials. All desserts are homemade. Seafood, fresh meats, produce and dairy are delivered fresh everyday.

My husband and I were visiting VA beach for the first time and were told this is a local favorite. The food did not disappoint. Happy Hour is from 3-7 so they have great drink specials and they also have .79 cent oysters. The specials all looked amazing and we narrowed it down to a grilled scallop dish. The dessert was also wonderful. You can't beat this place for the proce and it is a casual spot so you don't need to get dressed up. You are also right on the water so you have a great view.

Came here with family after seeing they have good wings. We started with an order of crab dip. Large portion with 12-15 pita chips. We had more dip than chips, and boy was it good. Had the house special grouper which was large portion and only 1499. Wife had clam strips son had crab cake sandwich, and daughter had the wings. We all liked our meals. Meaty wings with the meat moist and falling off the bone. Now a yearly stop for our family.

Breakfast fare was great tasting, with huge portions, and the price was very reasonable. The view is nice, too...

I have been to Big Sam's about 4 times in the last couple of years during business trips to Virginia Beach. Always great food, cold beer and the wings are fabulous!

Prices were cheap, but we would have done better to come during happy hour. I think this would be a fun place to visit with a group of people for beer. Not terribly impressed by the food. Dirty. Not the worst bathroom I've ever been in, but this isn't a gas station either. Cheap plastic outdoor furniture instead of real chairs in the dining room. Located in Rudy Inlet, so we could walk or ride our bikes there from the boardwalk at Virginia Beach. Waitress was friendly. We had to wait for a table, but we drank a couple beers outside as we waited.
