Diner Reviews
  • "The place has been hyped by my friends. I think the place has outdated layout and decoration. This would be a great place for a make over reality show. The food was great but I could tell our server was rushed. The couple next to us got better service than we did."

  • "The server was informed of a special request I made and offered his condolences. The seating was spot on and service exceeded expectations."

  • "The Lynnhaven fish house has been in Virginia Beach for as long as I can remember. We arrived early and were given a table overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. It's a beautiful location and fun to watch people roaming the beach. We purchased a half dozen oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer, which were very good and my wife enjoyed her she crab soup, although she did say that she's had better. She enjoyed the rock fish with the Christo sauce while I had the swordfish special with scallops and shrimp. Both were very good. We ended or meal with the Orange cake that was very most and tasty."

  • "Usually we are very excited about having supper here, but this last visit was very disappointing. The service was okay, but the food did not have that quality taste we come here for. The calimari was bland, and the breaded shrimp tasted like it was cooked in a deep fat fryer that had been used for other foods. My wife was very disappointment with the Sea crab shop."

  • "Went here for the first time yesterday, after hearing about it for a long time. We wanted good seafood and a view of the water, and we got both. On a gorgeous spring-like afternoon, we were greeted warmly by various staff members the moment we came in the door. We were fortunate enough to get a table by the window overlooking the Bay, although every table seems to have a view of the water. We had the she crab soup and bacon wrapped shrimp as appetizers, and each of us had the grilled fish (grouper and rockfish). Our server made excellent recommendations for the sauces, sides, and wine, and we were well taken care of all through the meal. It was all fantastic, and we look forward to many more visits."

  • "From the time we arrived, greeted at the door by the owner, to when we departed, door held open by the same, our experience was dining perfection! The restaurant was full, but still quiet. The view of ships dotting the horizon on the night time Atlantic was so romantic! After dinner, the best sorbet I have ever tasted. Perennially on many "Best of" list's in Hampton Roads. Will return whenever in the area."

  • "We enjoyed the Valentines Day Special. The view was great with the full moon rising across the beach. The food was great and the service could not have been any better. The waiter was very attentive yet never annoying."

  • "I actually did not know about this place until i did some research on some good seafood. Overall I was pretty happy. The only thing that i didn't care to much for the was calamari. It needs some work. Other than that I thought that the food was really good. The restaurant is right on the water so you have a wonderful view of the Bay. I would recommend and I am definitely going to be back one day!"

  • "The food was pretty good, but not remarkable. I was a little taken back by the fact that it we the oldest crowd I'm ever seen in a restaurant outside of Hardee's at 5 AM. The location is gold. This place sits right on the beach. The view of the rising moon was so striking that people c were at the window taking pictures. I hope they can start attracting another generation and make the Lynnhaven Fish House worthy of its history and location."

  • "The view was fantastic! The she crab soup was exceptional and I love the way they let you add your own sherry to it! The salmon special was excellent. I am sorry to see that they will no longer be on OpenTable ;.("
