A "don't miss" in Virginia Beach. The before 5:30 specials are a terrific bargain. For seafood or steaks, you can't go wrong here.

Great location on a waterway with many boats docked. Ask for a table by the windows for the best view. Good selection of Early Bird specials, all $14.99 or less, including salad and dessert. Food and service were both excellent. I suspect this place gets crowded early on since we went at 3:30pm and it was getting busy as we left. So go early to avoid the crowds and take advantage of the lower prices.

I've been several times to this restaurant over the past 5 years or so had good service and food. One evening I went with a large business crowd and we had no problems with service and everyone's dishes were well prepared.

This year I went for Sunday brunch and the options are limited and service was slow. My experience was not as good as the past years but this was my first time having brunch there. Not my recommended choice for brunch.

It is overlooking Lake Rudee, very close to the boardwalk area which is nice to get off the main drag for a bit.

On the south end (our fav area of VaBe) on the inlet, we dine here at least once every visit. Thursday is lobster night - 2 for $25, but everything on the menu is great. If there are 4 of you, try the dessert sampler. You won't be sorry.

We had dinner at Rockafeller's one night during Labor day week. We arrived around 5PM and were seated right away. we decided to order from the early bird menu & were happy we did. there was a nice side salad served followed by our entree the a choice of 3 desserts. My steak was cooked to order & tender. My husband enjoyed his fish dinner.

The restaurant was clean, we had a nice table by a window & our waiter was very friendly & helpful with our questions about the menu. Oh, I had a frozen drink called "Rockafeller relaxer" if you like peach flavor, you'll enjoy this!!
