This was our first visit to Rockafeller's and we would be happy to return. Everyone in our party was happy with the service and food. The view of the adjoining marina was enjoyable and we had a good table by the window.

A seafood restaurant that waste natural resources by preparing food so poorly. Noisy but expected.

We are new to the area and decided to try this place. I had the shrimp stuffed with crab meat and it was wonderful. I will definitely be back.

On a last minute visit to VA Beach, we decided we needed some local seafood. Great choices of a variety of fresh fish, crabs, and shellfish. Nice beer selection on draft. The place has a bit of a "tourist at the water" feel, but it works well. Also, TVs in another section seemed to be popular with the sporting crowd. We noted several tables that seemed to be regulars chatting with the waitstaff. My flounder was quite fresh and ample. The sides are traditional and seasonal with a very basic seasoning choice. Really nice soup and salad to get things started.
