Great place for anniversary celebration dinner. Varied menu with plenty of fresh seafoods. Love the shrimp cocktail and good hush puppies served at each table. Love the twin lobster tails with drawn butter.

The restaurant is on the beach with a great view towards the ocean. It serves fish any way you like it. The fish is very fresh. Very friendly staff.

Closing at the end of the year. Went this weekend. Excellent food, service. The best "high end" seafood place in VB will be no more. Sad.

Lynnhaven Fishhouse is the best seafood place in Virginia Beach. The food is always great. Unfortunately, they are closing at end of the year. Their location has been sold for more condos. So be sure to drop by for one last great meal.
