The view is very pleasing, overlooking the water and boats. The service was prompt and excellent. My wife thought her fish was dry and maybe overcooked, but everyone else seemed happy with their meal. I had crabcake and fried oysters. I make my own crabcakes from Chesapeake blue crab when I can get it and I know what a good crab cake tastes like. This one was was a 4 star, rather than a 5 star, only because it had some filler in it which I never use in mine. My son's tuna steak was done to his liking. Overall, I thought it was a little pricey for the food we got, but I also realize this is a resort area. I would come back again

Even though we had a group
Even though we had a group of eleven, the service never suffered and everyone received their drinks and food without difficulty. They were very accommodating for our group which was very much appreciated considering there is not a lot of room for big groups.
If you want well priced seafood and a pleasant place to eat, Rockafeller's is a great place to go. It's not on the boardwalk so you don't get as much of the tourist traffic or the noise. It's stationed right next to a small dock area in the inlet so there are some small boats and an okay view of the water.

Enjoyed our meal
This is not a romantic restaurant, but it is a great place for casual dining in an upbeat atmosphere. The food was very good and plentiful and the service was attentive and friendly. We went on a Friday night and it was crowded, but we had made reservations online (there were 6 of us) and we were seated immediately. I will definitely go there again.

You'll want to go back again and again !!

Parking is tight. Main lot is Valet only. Some free parking is close by... when I say close by, I mean right across street. Good food. Nice scenery and location. Been here many times and is a favorite for us when in town. Loud place so great for us with young kids. Casual dress. Good service. Usually is packed so reserve seating or get there early.

Special Occasion Enjoyment
Our party of 12 enjoyed the casual and relaxing upper room dining. We all enjoyed different entrees like Crab Meat Norfolk,
Seafood Sampler, Scallops and Oyster Rockeffers -- which were their favorites. Our waiter was more than excellent -- and very patient with all of our requests.

We had two parties of 6 for
We had two parties of 6 for Saturday night with reservations at 7 and 7:30. When we got there Rockefellers was able to accommodate all 12 of us at one time, at one table. I thought this was great. The restaurant was going the extra mile to see that we all could sit together and enjoy each other’s company. The only downside was that several plates were served cold, as if they had been sitting a while waiting on other food to be ready, but no one returned their food. So going forward I would probably stick with our two separate parties to help get the food out faster and at a warmer temperature. Overall the food was great, even cold, they had a great atmosphere and treated us well. I look forward to eating there again.

Went here for lunch, there was 10 of us. Our table was ready when we arrived, next to the window with a view of the inlet. It was a great distraction for my 5 year old and almost 2 year old to watch the boats come and go. They also loved the coloring pages and crayons. The food was wonderful! We especially loved the hush puppies and shrimp & crab quesadilla! The food was delivered fast and hot! We were too full to order dessert so can't comment on it, but it did look good on others tables! Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Food was good!
Reservation was for 12, we only had to wait a short time to be seated. Food was very good! However, food was not served timely.

This is the first time I've
This is the first time I've ever used the online reservations. It was fantastic. When we arrived to this busy place, our table was ready and we were waited on promptly. The food was excellent, and we really enjoyed ourselves. We will use this method again for sure.

We had a wonderful meal. So many great choices, we ordered an extra entree and shared everything. We loved the BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp. The restaurant was very family oriented.

Almost a Great Dining Experience
Went for dinner with family Thursday evening. Had a reservation so table was ready when we arrived. Valet parking is a great service, needed because this is a very busy restaurant. Our waiter was attentive, and responded quickly and appropriately when probems were encountered. The lobster special was terrific, and a terrific bargain. The steamer bucket was OK, with the shrimp overcooked. We were offered a dessert sampler for free to make up for the overcooked shrimp - and the desserts were wonderful. All-in-all, we enjoyed our visit, and look forward to our return.

Once again, a great dining experience. Our table was ready when we arrived 15 minutes early. Our waitress was excellent. The food very good to excellent. We'll be back again.

Warer view, large group
Greatvplace for large group. Have been there twice in a large party and is good as you would expect for a large restaurant. They take reservations which is also a big plus Forrest a resort area. Great view were seated promptly. Valet peaking also a big plus.

Great food reasonably priced
I booked for a party of 11 only a few hours before dinner. Our table was ready when we arrived. The main dining room which we were in had nice views of the Rudee Inlet. Everyone enjoyed their meal. One entree came out later than the others and the waiter made this up by giving us 2 deserts on the house. It was just enough for everyone to try a sample. I would recommend this to seafood lovers plus the New York strip steak was very juicy and nicely seasoned.

We enjoyed this during dinner. We had a table of eight at the upstairs outdoor porch area overlooking the marina. Nice venue.

Great local seafood spot in Virginia Beach right off of Rudee Inlet. Every Thursday night is Lobster night and you get two lobsters for the a low price. Great value. Great for little ones.

Outstanding as usual.
I go here every year while on vacation. I bring 8-10 people with me and we look forward to dining here all year round. It has become the highlight of our vacation. Great all the way around.

Appetizers were great!
We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers. All of them were great.
Problem was with the entrees - all of them arrived dried out. Not sure if they were under the heating lamps too long in the kitchen. Although the entrees were less than we expected, we would go back.

Came with a grup of 10 for brunch. Wait staff here is unusually good. On this occasion, the waitress was intiutive. She identified who was with whom and therefore how to make up separate tickets, without prompting by anyone. The food was hot and prompt, and we found it to be good as usual. We enjoy the ambience, and were accommodated this visit by sitting in a "quiet area" as we had a gentlemen in the group w/ two hearing aides, w/ problems w/extraneous noise. View is exceptional, and we enjoy Rockefellers for lunch about once to twice a month as well The menu changes, and we particularly enjoy the coconut and carrot cakes which are seasonal.

Excellent food and view
Steamed shrimp by the pound. Good size shrimp perfectly cooked and seasoned. Yum Yum

Our party of six really enjoyed the food, view & ambiance in this gem of a Virginia Beach restaurant. The kicker?? Two of us didn't even care for seafood and still found every taste that was shared delicious! It's somewhat of a local institution & best experienced as just that. Go in to have a relaxed meal with good friends & a great view.

Excellent Dining Experience
I chose Rockafellers for my birthday on Saturday. I had a reservation for a group of 10 however only 8 were able to attend. We were seated immediately even without the whole group being there. The service was first rate and the food was exceptional. I will definitely recommend this place to others.
