First of all, you can't get there from here. Arriving at the restaurant you seriously run out of road as the street turns into a boat ramp. You can't get much closer to the water than that! You will note the number of dead rise fishing boat docked close by. Our party grew to 28 and considering that we were... More

We've been going to Capt Chuck's for years, including under the previous and original owner, and always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

He was actually, literally, a... More

The food is fresh and tastes amazing. I can't get enough of the fish tacos. My husband loves the shrimp tacos, fried oysters, crab cake and unisex soup. The owners, Brooke and David, are very friendly . Mike mans the bar and makes a killer Bloody Mary ( best ever), as well as a "painkiller " ( not had the... More

Gotta get the Fish Tacos, by far the best I've ever had, my wife gets the crab cakes, which actually have lumps of real crab, and the kids really enjoyed the She Crab soup and how the waitress drawn on the table with them, will continue to go back!

Great food, service and atmosphere. The tiki shrimp and hush puppies are my all time favorite. We will be back again soon.

Amazing sunset views. Food is just as amazing. Live music often and deck sitting in the summer. Drink specials and on Wednesday they have very good surf and turf. Love them. Have gone for years. Making the drive from anywhere in Hampton roads is worth it. And don't forget the new gift shop detached in the parking lot.

Very pleasant atmosphere and friendly wait staff. Located on the water so the view is wonderful. Everyone was extremely pleased with their meal. It was a family gathering of 8 people.
