I brought my mother to the drag brunch and it was a huge hit. I've been to several of the drag brunches and it seems like some changes have been made to improve the experience. It was so much fun.

Been to the brunch several times. Have always made reservations and had good seating. However this time even with reservation we were seated behind the bar. So basically had poor service from wait staff that ignored you back there and couldn’t enjoy the show because you couldnt see the performers. What’s the point of reserving a table? we were there way before the show and seating should’ve been made for us on the main floor.

My first time going and I had a blast. The performances were amazing, and the place was packed. I loved the energy of the place. The food and drinks were great. I just wish the service was better, but I understand she had a couple big tables to attend to as well, but you can't forget about the little guy. The only hang up I had about the food was I wish it was a little more bang for your buck. Other than that my experience was outstanding and I definitely will be going back.

This was absolutely fun for myself and my mother. It was so much fun. It was busy but the waitresses were extremely fast. The food was great. Great prices for food. The entertainment was extravagant. The drinks were cheap and delicious! I would recommend it as a new experience or as a tradition which is what me and my mother will be doing now.

The Kale Salad was actually the very best thing we ate, even though the entrees, the Cioppino and a Crab Cake, were also quite good. Crocs is still growing the kale in their indoor garden and it was evident in the fresh, delicious quality of the salad. They split it for us, the waitress was lovely, our food was good, we had a very nice evening, thank you.

It was New Years Eve and they had a special menu. We got the 24 hour sous vide short ribs. As the owner of a sous vide, I know that anything cooked in it for that length should be tender. These ribs are not. The mashed potatoes were barely warm and the were pasty in texture. There was also a carrot purée on the plate that was simply cold. The drinks were ample but We were both disappointed in the food.

Casual service, attended but not bothered and relaxed atmosphere. Early dinner because we were heading to play. Not busy so noise level was low. Best scallops I have had in ages - delicious Caesar salad with safe romaine grown right there. Generous portions of all. Limited dessert menu but we shared brownie and ice cream - Delicious. Friends’ meals were big hits too. Will definitely be going back!

Croc's remains the standard for fine dining in VA Beach, on or off the oceanfront. If you've had enough of the 2.5 hour waits elsewhere hit this place up!

We’ve gone to the Drag Yourself To Brunch three different times. This time the service was terrible. I don’t know if they were short staffed, but after an hour of waiting for our food, I complained to a manager. They brought us free Mimosas, but we still waited another 15 minutes. The show is always fun, but even that has declined. There was a lack of variety and some of the best acts seem to have moved on. We most likely won’t go again.
