Enjoyed our visit to CROC's. It a our first time there. The Entertainment was excellent, we really enjoyed ourselves a grat deal. The Hostess, Sandra Onassis Lopez was a highlight of the visit there. She really carried the the show! The wait staff was nice, after we were allowed to sit. i guess they wanted to make sure everyone arrived first. There were some short-comings though. The Drinks were over-priced, and can be purchased at other Brunch places, just as good, for less. The seating was very tight, and did not allow the acts to move through like they should be able to engage with the customer. The food was good, but very minimal, and over-priced for what was served. That visit will probably be my last, unless some of my friends want the experience. I will left them know not to go for the food, but for the Entertainment. i plan to follow these talented people outside of Croc's Drag Brunch, at other Events.

While the food was fabulous in taste, the portion was pretty small. Drinks however, are perfectly oversized and fantastic!

Croc's is a dependable as ever. The food is consistant. I noticed a new menu this time with some added items since my last visit. This visit was somewhat noisy with what seemed to be some "spirited" people both in the bar and restaurant areas.

Although the menu is being updated and not exactly what we went for, or so the proprietor kindly told us when he stopped by the table, we were delighted with our experience! Wonderful service, great food, and pleasant surprise of 1/2 price bottles of wine on Saturday.

Stayed a couple nights in VA Beach and Crocs did not disappoint. The mezze platter was delectable, scallops cooked perfectly, fun drinks with fresh ingredients. Our waitress was fabulous also. Wished we were staying another night because we’d go again.

Croc's, as always, was very good. Saturday is half price wine night which makes it even better! My crab cake was properly prepared. It did seem that they were a little skimpy on the risotto and the seasonal veggies. The wife tried the cheeseburger and said it was good. Nothing fancy, just good food and friendly service.

Had a wonderful Ladies day out during the brunch celebrating my Birthday. It was my first time and loved the interaction with the performers. They really kept the crowd entertained. The food and drinks were also great.

Loved our visit to Croc's and will return. Surprisingly, it wasn't very crowded when we visited; we had a reservation and our table was ready even though we arrived a little early. Great food! Highly recommend the scallops or seafood risotto.

Didn’t even stay for the meal. The place was overly loud for a small space and although our reservation was at 1:30 at 1:45 we were still waiting and left.

Drag Sunday brunch was fun but too long. We didn’t get what we ordered but server too busy to ask for a do over. No butter/preserves on table. Food was warm, heavy on the preformed hash browns.

I was here on Sunday had a great time until my food came. My French toast was salty and when I told the waitress about it. She had a discussion with me like I was tasting salty in the food. So after about 20 mins she came back and said two other quest complained. Only then was it Valid that I was right. There was salt used instead of sugar. This was my bday celebration 🎉.

We went to the Drag Youself to Brunch show and had a blast. The food was good and the show was wonderful. Our server was very attentive even though she was swamped.
I would definitely go again.

GREAT at everything! The appetizers (tuna bites and shrimp tacos), and both entrees were perfectly cooked and so flavorful (scallops and seafood risotto)!
Our server (Crow) was professional, knowledgeable, and timely, and the owner (Kal) takes time to visit tables and speak with patrons for genuine feedback.
This is truly a gem in VA beach and we look forward to returning on our next trip!

Drag me to brunch at Croc’s is so much fun! The drinks are good and the food is yummy! Seating is a little weird, I feel like some seats get more of a show than others. But they did the best with their available space.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVED the show, the staff, the MIMOSAS!!!!! The only thing is that they could maybe put a little more into the hangover bowl (a scoopful will not cure any hangover😂)!! All in all, it was AMAZING and I’ll definitely be back!!!
