When the waitress said "Whole black sea bass fried!", I was delighted and both my hands flew in the air! Having visited here last summer we were eager to return again and we were not disappointed! The fried shrimp appetizer with the in-house made cocktail sauce brims with a great amount of horseradish! Yep, it's addictive but only to be... More

Suppose that Calabash style seafood is not what they do in Virginia, unlike N.C.. The fried seafood combo platter had 1/2 piece flounder, 4 scallops, 3 shrimp, crab cake w/2 sides and ran $26. Not at all what we are used to but tasty. No atmosphere since when you enter it looks like a fish market and actually is before... More

I really like the size of the portions. Steamed clams are one of my favorites too! The fried softshell crabs are excellent.

Mothers Day weekend, one bartender also waiting on tables and training maybe her daughter. Took long time to take our order with an attitude "I'll be right over there!" Overall restaurant dirty inside & outside. Floors not swept, etc. Food portions not what they used to be. Sorry, we're done. Too many other good restaurants in Virginia Beach!!

We got an order of hushpuppies to start and the came out so fresh and hot. After dinner, we split the creme brulee cheesecake which... More

One thing that happened that I didnt think to be ok was to have the waitress wipe down the restaurant tables with glass cleaner. Glass cleaners arent known to sanitize . I do hope it was non ammonia at least. I would think a wipe that has a better sanitizing ability would be a more appropriate way to keep the... More

Laid back, low key, great service and fresh catch food! Stop in and purchase fresh seafood in the market to cook at home or stay and enjoy your meal overlooking the water. Boats pull in to dock daily to deliver fresh catch.
