Diner Reviews
  • "Took my youngest daughter out for a birthday dinner with family. The 7 of us had a great time! Our server, Vanessa (first week there) was exceptional...very good hire. We will be back"

  • "This is an average tourist restaurant. It has an extensive menu, but relies heavily on fried & pre-prepared dishes. The waiter forgot one of the entrees for our table of 5. Salads were soggy as if prepared early in the day. Oysters on the half shell were good & fresh. Flounder stuffed w/ crab was pedestrian. The restaurant was noisy & not at all relaxing. It was nearly impossible to have a conversation at our table. A family w/ children would likely find this restaurant satisfactory."

  • "We dined at Rockafeller's on 14 March 2014. Pretty sunset during our din din! It was incredibly busy already for our 6:30 PM reservation. I recommend you get there early for dinner if on a Friday and I recommend the sunset timeframe, because the view is scenic. Most impressed with the oysters. The she-crab soup had too much shell in it. They serve tasty cornbread for table bread. Thank you Rockafeller's for the friendly service!"

The food was tasty and oh so fresh. The service was fast and friendly. There were four people in my group and everyone enjoyed their meals."

  • "My husband and I traveled to Virginia Beach for a little getaway from Northern Virginia. It completely slipped our minds that it was Valentine's Day and we need to find a restaurant on short notice. After calling so many restaurants and not having any availability, we were able to find Rockefeller's through OpenTable. They had availability and we were thankful for that. We always travel to Virginia Beach and this was our first time at this restaurant. Although they were busy, we were seated in 15 minutes. They had a lovely Valentine's Day menu which we took advantage of. The meat was cooked perfectly, the service was great, and valet was very prompt. I would definitely come back."

  • "Food was hit and miss. My wife's stuffed flounder was amazing, my filet may have been the worst I ever had. Service was bad. Dining room is crowded and noisy. With so many great restaurants in Virginia beach, I would recommend you pick a different one."

  • "This is a must stop for us every time in Virginia Beach. Good food (highly recommend the stuffed flounder), attentive and friendly staff, and always accommodates my three kids ranging from 3 months to 5 years. Great local beer selection....and my glass never gets too empty before they offer a refill. I enjoy this restaurant!"

  • "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."

  • "Disappointing. Dinners in past years have always been nice. First time going for brunch, none of the food was appetizing. Heavy and greasy. Took guests from out of town. One is a chef and he was kind enough to take the food to go so as to not insult us for picking the place or any of the staff."

  • "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."
